I previously wrote a post about a charitable company named Boxes of Eden that was selling fruits and vegetables online. When I looked at the site three months ago it raised some concerns for me and I wrote Boxes of Eden and Destinato Have My Scam Antenna Way Up.
One of the comments on that post was from Samatha Roberts with Boxes for Eden that said, “We are a relatively new company formed by a charity to help end COVID by sending nutritious foods so we can stop the spread. We partner with mostly organic farmers who pick and ship directly, with our profits all going towards creating a small orphanage for homeless women and children.”
Even the marketing on the Boxes of Eden website mentioned COVID. It felt very COVID advantageous.
But I just learned the Boxes of Eden website has gone missing. If you visit it now you see a message that says:
Why would the Boxes of Eden website go missing?
A reader said another site was related. The site is for Absurd Organics. And sure enough, Michael Aesir that was directly related to Boxes of Eden says he is the co-founder of Absurd Organics. – Source
It is interesting that his connection with Boxes of Eden does not appear on his about me page or on his Linkedin profile.
I don’t know what happened to Boxes of Eden but I’ve transferred my concerns over to Absurd Organics. I’m very happy to be wrong but something doesn’t feel right.
By the way, Boxes of Eden had a relationship with a company named Destinato and that website was linking to Absurd Organics and has since removed it. – Source
Just be a smart consumer and make sure you have checked the company out so you can make the best decision you can.
