Firstly we would just like to say a big thank you to everyone who has bought a Badger Box this month, your support means so much to us as a small business. We’d like to extend this thank you to all the lovely bloggers who have reviewed the box, we’ve loved hearing your thoughts! We’ve absolutely loved hearing and seeing how much you’ve enjoyed your boxes, and have loved looking at your boxes in situ. In the blog today we will be doing the official unboxing of the first ever Badger Box. Our first Badger Box ‘It’s getting hot out there’ was a selection of summery treats, ranging from a present for your garden, a bright homeware, a wickedly funny seaside greeting card, an exclusive print by a top UK illustrator and some super sweets!
Tim Easley is a London based illustrator, designer and photographer. He is self taught and loves to work with hand drawn lettering and bright colours. We commissioned him to make this exclusive ‘Ice Scream’ print for the Badger Box, we loved his use of witty humour and bright colours. We also included some of his super cool business cards in the form of 2D glasses!

Kabloom is a small design company based in Scotland, they develop design led unique and eco friendly products inspired by interactions with nature and the urban environment. For the Badger Box we sourced ‘Loveboms’ and ‘Pollinatorboms’. Each seedbom is embedded with an explosive mix of organic peat free compost and seeds. Seedboms are handmade in the UK from recycled, organic and biodegradable materials. In order to trigger your seedbom you must place the bomb in water till its soaked through, then throw the seedbom into derelict ground - look for signs of soil and natural light.
