Once you become a member, you'll want to join the Essential Rewards program (if you are already a member, click here to get your ER -- that's what all of us Essential Rewards fanatics call it -- set up). It’s our monthly box program that you can join at any time. If you’re going to be part of the toxin free movement, this is the way to go. It comes with some great bonuses like points back, discounted shipping, and free monthly promotional products! This is a no pressure program that is in no way a requirement and can be turned off at any time.
