Today I’m happy to be talking with Monika Wiela, CEO and Founder of Give Back Box, which Norwex is now a proud partner of.
A self-described problem solver, Monika was inspired to start the Give Back Box program after encountering a homeless man in need of shoes. As on online shoe retailer with a warehouse full of cardboard boxes, she came up with a groundbreaking idea that turned her life in a whole new direction and which is now also helping to provide much-needed solutions to various challenges.
Thanks to the Give Back Box program, now not only are millions of people helping those in need but they’re also helping to keep landfill space free. And you can too. It’s easy and free! Here’s how:
The Give Back Box program is a win-win-win as it helps us clean out our closets, create some space and comfort someone else. Best of all it’s free!

I love this!! What a great idea!! I had just watched the video on this and was about to tell a friend of mine who is getting ready to move. But she had already donated her stuff before I was able to tell her, but if (and I’m sure she will) she has more she will definitely use this service.
I love this. I packed up a few boxes from Christmas with some things today. Excited to get them shipped.
The boxes are coloured on form our reduce / refuse Christmas wrapping this year.
Looks like Christmas can happen all year around with “the give back boxes”
Jacqueline, thank you so much for sharing! Kudos to your artists too; we know those boxes will bring a smile all along the way. It’s true: Christmas can indeed happen all year round!
When you click on the link to print a label I enter my Zip Code, the label had an address not mine on it? How can I get my address on the shipping label? I live in Ohio and the box was shipping to Alabama. Does Give Back Box work with Chariable organizations in everystate? Can you pick the charity that you want your donation to be shipped too?
Thank you I am so glad that Norwex has partnered with Give Back Box!
Thanks for your question, Chris. The address on your label is the Give Back Box company address as they collect the donations and disperse them according to where the greatest needs are. The donations are provided to either Goodwill or Salvation Army here in the US.
Bummer. I don’t donate to Goodwill b/c of the profit status the management team seems to hold. I love donating to Salvation Army, but as much as I love the give back box idea, I will donate to a mission locally instead.
Hi, I am in Malaysia. I doubt this program is available where I am. But, our household has always been active in giving out stuff to our local charitable initiatives. I guess it works the same. Bottomline is, a win for us in giving n a win for those who needed them. Kudos to all!
Zuraini, thanks for your comment and your generous spirit. It’s definitely a win for all!
I am new to Norwex and just became a consultant because I love what Norwex does. I joined the Norwex movement today as well. I love this idea. I have been really working on decluttering and giving back to thrift shops great items in good condition but items that I just don’t use or wear. I am going to fill a box for sure. I am in BC, Northern Canada. This movement and the Give Back Box just is amazing. I am also a principal of a school. I tell my students it doesn’t matter that you are five, six, seven etc. One person can make a difference and when a whole bunch of people do small things they all add up. Thank you.
I cannot figure out how to print a label. Can someone help? I click on the link and it does not give me any options to print a label.
Hi Dawn, thanks for your question; however, the Give Back Box program is not longer one of our Norwex partners. Please consider donating to a local charity in your neighborhood.
