    Jameson Morris
    President of Consciousness

    Prior to founding Conscious Box, Morris sought to share his passion for natural, sustainable living and founded Organic Soul, which grew to one of the larger organic living publications online.

    Companies depend on sample-size products since consumers want to try before they buy. However, few transparent, scalable, effective channels for sample distribution exist. These realizations led him to create Conscious Box in Jan 2012.
