Now that more people are getting out of the house and traveling again, hosts have been inundated with bookings. Public Goods and HostGPO wanted to make hosting as easy, accessible, and sustainable as possible for rental property owners, so the two companies teamed up to release the HostBOX Starter Bundle, which contains all the necessities for first-time renters or renters who want to make renting easier.

The box contains 63 essentials a host and their guests will likely need, including bath items like shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, cleaning and laundry items like detergent, glass cleaner, and dish soap, and even kitchen pantry must-haves like olive oil, balsamic vinegar, coffee, tea, salt, and pepper.

“This box should be enough to get you started with your first bookings (rule of thumb — one box per 4 guests), the kit’s description reads. “Once you’ve used all of the products you can easily purchase another box or the items you loved most in bulk through the wholesale site.”

The bundle is stuffed full of Public Goods’ refills, which cut down on single-use plastic waste. Public Goods also carbon offsets shipping and will plant a tree in collaboration with Eden Restoration Projects for every order placed. So hosts can feel good about every aspect of buying this starter kit.

The HostBOX Starter Bundle is selling for $388, with a 25 percent discount being offered to HostGPO members. The first HostBOX drop has already sold out, but you can sign up to get notified about when the bundles are back in stock.
