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!

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 was so intimidated writing to local officials or calling them. This box was an amazing answer. All the talking points were there so that I felt very informed about all the topics; I mean, I could explain them myself and talk to a rep without a script! Amazing. It's super convenient that stamps are included, cause who has time to go to the post office for that? The treats are an added bonus. The first box was full of laundry supplies. I had literally just been lamenting dryer sheets and how much of a waste they are. Those dryer balls are awesome. I will totally be using those from now on. This last box had chocolates. Who doesn't want those when they open their mail? This has been a great subscription box service and I feel great knowing that I'm doing something not just for me but something that's good for everyone and the environment.

Planet Post said...Oct 01, 2020

Yes! That's exactly why I started this box! Environmental issues can be so overwhelming, it's hard to explain them sometimes. I love that you're talking to your reps! :)

Power Post gives you everything you need to take specific actions each month, including stamps, postcards, and information to make the process easier. Politicians and companies really do listen to feedback, especially when you care enough to hand write it and mail it in. Plus, the goodies sent each month are thoughtful and fun. I highly recommend 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!

I received my first Power Post box yesterday and let me tell you, it totally exceeded my expectations!! The kit contains everything you need to express your environmental concerns to your representatives, post cards, stamps, pens, pencils, etc. and a suggested issue that affects our environment. This month is Nestle trying to harvest water from environmentally sensitive areas for profit. Beside robbing water resources from communities Nestle contributes to the damaging effects of plastics in our ecosystems. The box also contains samples of sustainable, reusable products as alternatives to all the plastic. The box is packed and packaged beautifully using only recycled, renewable materials. I’m already excited about next month’s Power Post. Now to plan a Power Post meet up with a few friends and get the first set of post cards mailed out! Bravo on making citizen participation organized and easy!!

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 got my first box last month. It's amazing! It had produce bags, really cool bamboo straws, pens and pencils and every thing I need to send postcards about causes I care about. I love that I can do this with my family and teach them that change is possible and that it starts in our own home. I had all the neighborhood kids come over and write postcards. Not only did they participate, but they learned about the effects of having plastic in our national parks. This crate is fun and makes me feel good about myself.

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.

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!
