Meet the Sustainable Home Organisation Store That’s Sleek and Modern, but Won’t Cost You the Earth

Not a Boring Box is a gorgeous sustainable home organisation store that’s here to change up the way you organise your home. 

Founded in 2020 by Lauren Allen, who has always loved keeping things neat and tidy (but had never found a brand that stocked all of lthe home storage solutions she was after), Not a Boring Box works with amazing brands and manufacturers to bring customers top quality, innovative organisational products – that are sleek, modern, and will want to make you show off any room. 

Not a Boring Box offers just about every storage option you’ll ever need, from jewellery organiser trays to soap dispensers and pasta jars. 

In fact, their kitchen organisation solutions are best sellers – which isn’t surprising, given the kitchen really is the ‘heart of the home’. 

Not a Boring Box’s kitchen storage solutions are designed to look just as stunning as they are handy. 

The spice jars with bamboo lids are especially popular – as they’re reusable and perfect for decanting all of your favourite spices, providing everything with a uniform, on-trend look. 

You can also purchase stick-on labels for the jars, so no more mixing up your spices ever again. 

And, if you’re a fan of watching people organise their fridges (thanks, TikTok), you’ll be happy to know that you can do just the same, with Not a Boring Box’s fridge storage bundle. 

And don’t forget the pantry! This sustainable brand offers trolleys perfect for putting away your stored containers of jars and bottles. 

Alongside kitchen products, Not a Boring Box has the bedroom, office, and dressing room covered, too. 

They offer helpful baskets for children’s toys – such as their ‘Stuff’ and ‘Mess’ baskets, which parents love, and even a bamboo cable storage box to hide those messy cables. 

We’re also big fans of the jewellery box and necklace and bracelet jewellery organiser for those who want to keep their accessories separate, and the Lubin laundry basket is perfect for anyone with a minimalist bedroom (or dressing room, if you’re lucky enough to have one!). 

The initial inspiration behind Not a Boring Box struck Lauren in the midst of the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown. 

She said: ‘I have always loved being organised and being efficient with every aspect of my time. During lockdown, I was spending a lot of time organising things at my home and realised that I couldn’t find a one-stop-shop for all things home storage in the UK.

‘I want to offer products that are aesthetically beautiful, but the must is that they are functional – there is no point decanting something into a pretty jar that won’t actually make your life any easier. 

Good quality is key. For me, any focus on sustainability has got to mean good quality products that are built to last. We care about how our products are made and who makes them – and we aim for products that won’t cost the earth or cost our planet.’
