June 2019 Papergang Review

*THIS POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS*

Look at me! I’m actually posting about my Papergang box IN THE MONTH I RECIEVED IT!

Papergang is run by a UK based independent company, Ohh Deer, that focuses on sustainability. All the packaging is recyclable and for every 4 boxes sold 1 tree will be planted in association with the charity TreeAid. I’m definitely behind this!

Every month you receive exclusive stationery and desk accessories designed in collaboration with different artists. June’s box featured work by Jack Carter and it’s in collaboration with the Marine Conservation Society – for every box sold £1 is donated to the charity.

Our oceans are under serious threat, not only from climate change but also from overfishing, lack of protection and single use plastic! MCS has been working on cleaning up the UK beaches, and more, for over 25 years. I think this is incredibly important, alongside committing to reducing carbon dioxide emissions to slow climate change – the ocean is vital for many things other than just a food source…

The subscription costs £10.95 with £2.95 postage, or you can prepay for 3, 6 or 12 months. With the monthly subscription you can cancel whenever you like or skip a month.

All the packaging is recyclable and for every 4 boxes sold 1 tree will be planted in association with the charity TreeAid. You can find out more about their partnership here. This is something I value; we need to become more sustainable and treat this planet better if we want somewhere to live in the future.

*PRODUCTS WERE SENT TO ME TO REVIEW*

Barry M finally released new Gellies! There are 4 in this release and all of them are perfect for summer. This brings us to a total of 58 Gelly Hi Shine nail paints! I have noticed that some of these shades are very similar to a few of the colours first released back in 2012/2013, but as the old shades aren’t availbale anymore these are great substitutes if you missed out. I’ve shared my comparisons below! Having said this, I hope they never discontinue this range, it’s one of my favourites.
