Our first Power Post box
by John written 5 days ago
What fun exploring everything that came in the box. Very thoughtful. The Starbucks campaign was perfect. I had often wondered how to reach out to Starbucks regarding some of their policies. This makes it easy.
Thanks Power Post!

I'm really enjoying my subscription to Power Post! The well researched and beautifully presented Fact Sheets have taught me so much about specific environmental issues. The recent box on municipal composting, with it's clear and convincing graphics, really gave me "food" for thought that I was eager to share with my local and county elected officials (and, of course, the enclosed postcards and stamps made it easy for me to do so). The "Green Goodies" information sheets and the green goodies themselves have been interesting, helpful and very useful. I especially like the reusable Earthwise produce bags for corralling fruits and veggies both in the supermarket and at home. This month, my post box included a travel cup. Because of this month's mission to pressure Starbucks to make a truly recyclable cup, I am making it a habit to "always carry a travel cup" in my tote bag. In addition, I show the cup to a manager whenever I make a Starbucks stop and politely suggest that they communicate my concerns to "Corporate." I love the fact that, through my subscription to Power Post, I'm learning so much more about specific environmental issues and have the tools to make my voice (and friends' and neighbors' voices) heard and the opportunity to sample earth friendly products that are useful in my everyday life. All in all, I look forward to receiving my Power Post box each month!
What a box!

I got my first power post box, and WOW! Full of green goodies and fun. Mine had reusable beeswax wrap, to use instead of cling wrap or tinfoil, colored pencils made from newspapers, pens made from plastic bottles, as well as recycled paper postcard, stamps, and addresses. I think my favorite thing in the box was a special type of berry, that when put in a washing machine, would create a kind of soap. They're compostable, and 5 berries can be used for ten washes! The topic of the box changes every month. This month's topic was to ban styrofoam. My friends and I had a great time writing and decorating the cards, as well as learning a lot about how bad styrofoam is for the environment. I don't think I'll ever eat at McDonald's again. They use way too much styrofoam on soda cups. Goodbye, McNuggets.
