Product Details

Aspiring or overwhelmed environmental activist?

Automate your activism! You get 3-4 eco-friendly products to help you reduce waste & CO2. But more importantly, each Planet Post box includes supplies for a postcard campaign, easy-to-understand info about a climate issue, talking points, and links. All *you* need to do is gather family, friends, or just a beverage, and make your voice heard!
  • Give the gift of a meaningful, eco-conscious activity! Perfect for the eco-activist, eco-curious, or eco-anxious. Bring friends and family together to learn new things, and make a difference. 🌍
  • Engage with your representatives on crucial issues like fossil fuel subsidies or the Climate Crisis and its connection to social justice and health. Call out corporations responsible for global problems like plastic pollution, deforestation, and pollinator decline. 🐝
  • Learn more about environmental issues with our clear infographics and links to research and informative videos. You don't need to spend hours sorting fact from fiction because we've done the digging to find trusted sources. ✍️
  • You’ll also be giving back! 10% of the proceeds from each packet is donated to an environmental non-profit working on that month’s mission. 💚
  • INTERESTED IN A SPECIFIC MISSION? Á-la-carte boxes available on our site! 💌

Q: Am I able to request any preferences? For example, I am vegan, so I do not use any bee products (honey, beeswax, etc.) And would love to get this box, but bot those types of products. Asked by Shawna L., January 2022

Planet Post answered...January 2022

Hi Shawna,
Yes, I can most likely switch things out for you. Just shoot me an email the month you order and I'll double-check that everything is bee-gan.
Thanks!

Q: How does giving a gift box work? Am I able to do more than 1 month as a gift? Would it charge the recipient after the gift months end?Asked by Cori K., November 2020

Planet Post answered...November 2020

You can absolutely give more than 1 month as a gift! We offer 1, 3, 6 or 12 month gift subscriptions. There is also an option to add a message, which I will include in the first box.
We can't charge the recipient, as only your payment info will be used. And just click the "do not renew" button at checkout when you're ready to stop.
Hope that helps!

Q: When is my subscription billed?Asked by Christopher C., September 2020

Planet Post answered...September 2020

Hi!
You'll be billed immediately with your first order. Then any renewals will be billed on the 11th. So, if you subscribed for month-to-month, you'll be billed every month on the 11th. If you get a 3-month subscription, you'll be billed when you renew after the first 3 months, etc.
Hope that helps!

Awesome experience all around! We have really enjoyed the subscription and look forward to continuing in the future. The curator was great about communicating and answering any questions I had.
Thank you for educating us and introducing us to some fantastic, sustainable businesses that we will continue to support!

This box was far too expensive for the products you receive. Though eco-friendly, oddly enough provides an overabundance of paper waste that could be made available online, I think. Overall not a box I would recommend, gift or resub.

Planet Post said...Jun 10, 2021

Hi Rachel,
Thanks for the feedback. You make a great point about the infographics being available online. I'm working on a QR code link that will allow the guests of your postcard-writing party to pull up the infographics as well as passing around the 3-4 printed pages. In the meantime, for anyone who just wants to print the campaigns at home, they're available to download on the Teachers Pay Teachers website. (Just search for Environmental Activism)
The main focus of Planet Post is the eco-activism postcard writing kit, so I've got a packet option for anyone who would prefer to go without the goodies. Just check out my Planet Post website.
Thanks for your support of the environment!
Cheris :)

It’s a great idea but not great for my 21 yr old son. I paid for 3 months but glad to be done. Thanks anyway.

Planet Post said...Feb 18, 2021

That's really good feedback! It's true, an eco-activist kit isn't right for everyone, and the Green Goodies change each month, so sometimes one product might not be a hit. But thanks so much for your 3 month support! Every little bit of activism and environmental education helps. :)

Love!

Love it! Only thing I would recommend is they address it for you so you know where to send them! Love all the extras though!

Planet Post said...Nov 02, 2020

Thank you so much for the kind words!
The address thing is tricky, since everyone has different representatives. That's why I include a QR code and a URL that link to a "find your representatives" site, whether it be local or national.
I *am* thinking about maybe using address stickers for the campaigns targeting companies. But I'm always trying to balance creating extra waste against activism... sticker backs aren't usually recyclable or compostable. (Sometimes I literally cut the addresses out of the literature and glue them to the postcards. ;)
Love the ideas! The more the better! :)

I ordered as a gift 2 weeks ago and I can't find the customer service number or any information on the shipping and it still hasn't arrived. I'd love some input as to who or where to go. The email confirmation came from Cratejoy but the product was Planet Post?

Planet Post said...Dec 24, 2020

Yikes! That's so frustrating, Marisa!
You're right, looks like you ordered on the 9th. I sent it on the 10th, but the tracking number says it's still "waiting for information"! I'm guessing this is Covid-mail-volume, plus the storm in NY, trying to thwart us.
Regardless, I'll send out another box tomorrow, Dec. 24th, with a different mission and Green Goodies in case the first one shows up. But before then I'm going send your recipients an e-card letting them know the situation, and to expect a package soon. I'll email you more specifics on that right now.
Thanks for letting me know! :)

This box is wonderful! You learn about great causes and get stamps and postcards to send off. In addition to having something good to do, the box is always packaged with some extra Eco friendly goodies and I am always surprised by them. These goodies alone are worth the cost of the box.

Power Post is great way to stay informed about environmental issues and to be an advocate for change without being overwhelmed. As a busy Mom, I don't have a lot of extra time, but this subscription box makes it possible for me to stay involved. The boxes are very well put together! The topic card is always very informative, with easy to follow key notes that explain exactly why the monthly topic is important and what we can do to push for a positive change. And... the goodies are great!! We love our beeswax wraps, our sunscreen bar in a tin, and our bulk food bags. The reusable straws and take-out silverware set are perfect to keep in the car, and the bamboo "paper" towels lasted forever. Having this subscription box has also been a great way to keep the family informed and involved. My 9 year old son calls it our "Save the Planet Box". It's not like most other subscription boxes, just to treat-your-self (although the goodies are fantastic), it is so much bigger than that! I highly recommend for anyone who gives a damn.

I love it so much that you're getting the family involved in your postcard writing campaigns.
Thanks for the great review!
