Who doesn’t love a killer healthy subscription!? I DO! And guess what, I’ve tried like, them all. Meat subscriptions, beauty subscriptions, smoothies subscriptions, fresh meal subscriptions, frozen meal subscriptions, lifestyle subscriptions….THE WORKS! I mean, it’s legit written in my job descriptions so…a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, right? Well after testing and trying and tasting, I’ve narrowed it down to five faves.
Here’s the criteria.
- Has to be the cleanest of the clean. No greenwashing or funky ingredients allowed. So many times I’ve tried a meal delivery service who claims to be organic only to find out everything is organic except for the chicken. Mama don’t play that.
2. Has to be practical. Yeah sure I would love meals prepped for me so I would never have to cook but when a subscription sits in my freezer for months…I know it ain’t working for me.
3. Has to have GREAT customer service. If something goes wrong I want to know that I’ll be taken care of – less back and forth and more smiles is a selling point for me.
4. It has to be a really good value.
5. It has to improve my life in some way. Less toxins in my food or discovering the best cleansing balm or helping to save the world by putting reusable straws in my purse.
So without further ado, here are the 5 best organic subscriptions on the market. You legit can’t go wrong with any of these! Oh and keep these in mind for the holidays because they make the best gifts!
1. Beauty Heroes
If you are into green, nontoxic, organic beauty, you may have heard about Beauty Heroes. If you haven’t, let me catch you up because girl, you are missing out.
I think we all know the feeling when we buy…we try…and we hate right? It’s an impulse buy at Sephora or maybe a face cream after a spa treatment. Something we splurge on but end up meh about in the end. You are not alone girl, it’s happened to the best of us. Well, Beauty Heroes takes the guess work out of your skin and haircare routine. Every single product has been vetted – not only to ensure the ingredients are safe but that they perform too.
What sets Beauty Heroes apart is founder Jeannie Jarnot chooses top of the line. She goes beyond just “nontoxic” and looks for products that will feed our skin and our souls. We are talking hand crafted, small batch, innovative lines that source ingredients with the utmost care and thoughtfulness.
Jeannie says, I started Beauty Heroes to change the way women discover and enjoy healthy and non-toxic beauty products. Non-toxic was a huge focus for me, because naturally, no one wants to be using products that cause cancer, endocrine disruption and so on. When I started the company, I used the word nontoxic a lot in describing our service and products. But along the way I realized that was actually setting the bar too low. It’s a no brainer that we don’t want toxic products. Nontoxic is the bare minimum of what we should expect from products we buy to put on our bodies. I created my company for me, and people like me, who want and expect better.
In addition, Beauty Heroes members are the first to try brand’s new releases, experience new packaging, reformulations and special editions of product. It’s pretty lit. Maya Chia made an exclusive scent for her Waterless Wonder Balm just for Beauty Heroes members – it’s never been released to the public. And AU Naturals debuted their new packaging and formulas though Beauty Heroes just this past year.
To sign up for Beauty Heroes, it is an initial three month commitment of $128.85 and then you pay $42.95/mo after that. You can cancel anytime after the initial 3 month period.
Each delivery will arrive with one “Hero” product. This is a full size product. I’ve seen hero products come valued as high as $185. And it’s guaranteed to include a “Sidekick”. This can be anything from an organic washcloth to three additional full size products.
Lastly, once you become a Beauty Heroes member you get an exclusive 15% off discount to anything in the Beauty Heroes store as well as any special or seasonal selections that may become available ALWAYS. And because Jeannie’s standards are so high she only carries the best of the best – an across the board discount you won’t find anywhere else.
I always say Beauty Heroes makes a great birthday gift for your sister, mom, girlfriend, sister-in-law, wife or boo. And I truly mean it! I bought a 3 month subscription for both my mom and sister-in-law a couple of Christmas’s ago and they both loved it. Two of my besties are also members. Access to high quality clean product without paying the price. This box is truly a great fit for anyone.
2. Waseda Farms Organic + Pastured Meat Delivery
Hi guys! Steph here. I’m so excited to introduce you to Waseda Farms.This is a family owned operation in Bailey’s Harbor, WI. What sets their farm apart? First off, I’ve supported Waseda for the past 4 years and know their ethics and their heart! Supporting an operation like this verses a big box store ensures supporting small farming operations, animal welfare, and premium, healthy meats for you and your family. They are not only 100% grass-fed/pastured but also certified USDA Organic!! This is HUGE and I can’t stress it enough! Very few farms meet both of these marks, it’s typically one but not the other. For example organic chicken that is not pastured or grass-fed beef that is not organic. The quality is of the absolute highest standards and the animals are raised humanely. Best of all…now available in a meat box and can be shipped anywhere in the United States!!
The box can accommodate up to 30 lbs of meat ranging from beef, bison, Berkshire pork, chicken, turkey, and lamb. Choose a pre package combo or create a personal order. Ask to be auto shipped or one time shipping. All orders need to be placed Monday – Wednesday 8am-2pm Central time because it will ship 1 day air and arrive to you frozen. This guarantees it will not be sitting in a warehouse and be delivered to you in great condition. Call (920) 632-7271 OR email email@example.com to place order.
Mention “thisorganicgirl” and receive 1LB. ground beef for FREE!

3. Nectar & Green
Try and find a clean nut milk in your local grocer. I mean even the organic ones are made with gums and sometimes preservatives. I’ve seen a few exceptions like MALK which is super clean but let me introduce you to Nectar & Green which is taking nut milks next level.
Founder Laurel launched Nectar & Green in 2015 with the belief that healthful living and simple living should be one and the same.
First Nectar & Green takes a whole bunch of whole, organic almonds and SPROUTS THEM. You wont find nut milk like that at your local grocer. Sprouting nuts reduces phytates, increases bioavailability of nutrients and can be gentler on the digestive system. Then they press them and combine them with a short list of ingredients like honey from local hives and salt from the Atlantic. No heat, no refined sugars, no fillers.
Customize a box with any of their new or signature flavors and they will ship right to your door. Orders placed by 1pm Monday—Thursday arrive next day. Try it once, or make it weekly. $12 flat rate shipping.
Sea Salt + Honey, Vanilla Bean, Cacao, Espresso, Maple…This milk is super light in flavor and beautifully balanced. You really get just an essence of these flavors. The consistency is more like a skim milk rather than a shake or a smoothie. Love having these in the fridge to grab in the morning.

4. Dry Farms Wine
Let me first start by saying, anyone who knows me, knows I’m no stranger to a good cab franc, cab sab, malbec…heck, I’ll even throw merlot in there because I’m inclusive like that. But let’s take a minute and talk about what’s going on, and in, that bottle of wine we pick up at the corner packie.
In the US, wine producers can use up to 76 different additives in wine without disclosing any of them on the bottle. SEVENTY SIX. Thirty-eight of the 76 additives are considered “GRAS” – a FDA acronym for Generally Regarded As Safe….the others? Not so much I guess. One of the biggest benefits for winemakers is these additives provide control over taste and color so wines taste, and look, the same year after year. It also makes them faster (AKA cheaper) to produce. For a more extensive list of additives, check out this compilation.
In addition, conventional wines are made with GMO yeast, bottled before they are finished fermenting to speed up the process, doused with high fructose corn syrup and sugar to boost the alcohol content, and most conventional grapes are sprayed with Round-Up.
Meet Dry Farm Wines! Dry Farm Wines is the largest buyer and reseller of natural wines in the world. They source, taste and lab test organic, natural and biodynamic wines worldwide THEN deliver it to your door monthly or every other month. (It’s like a monthly nontoxic beauty box, sub wine!) Here’s what’s up.
Natural wine, defined by Dry Farm Wines, is real wine made from healthy grapes and happy yeast. It’s nature at its best IMO. To be considered natural, wines are farmed organically and/or biodynamically, free of chemical sprays, additives and fermented with native yeast.
There are so many bennies here but I have to start out with the the one that knocked my socks off; taste. This wine tastes SO GOOD. Dare I say the best I’ve had. Yeah, I went there!
