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
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
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!
Q: When is my subscription going to be shipped?Asked by Christopher C., September 2020
Your first box will go out within 5 days of your order. After that, any subsequent boxes will go out between the 7th-9th of each month. :)
Q: What is the last day that I can subscribe to get this month's box?Asked by Christopher C., September 2020
Usually, it's the last day of the month. However, sometimes I do sell out. :) Always feel free to email me to ask about the status. I try to keep my Instagram and Facebook pages updated if that particular box is gone.
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!
Awesome Box! Used as a birthday present and the gift kept giving!
Just got my first box and it's got great items and a cause that I feel good about being a part of. I can't wait to share this with a many people as I can!
Thank you! So happy to hear it! :)
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.
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!
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.
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. :)
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.
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! :)
Great concept love this box. Well prepared and I love the green goodies
Thanks so much Shannon! :)
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!
You are a Planet Post (formerly known as Power Post) rockstar!
Thanks for all you do for the environment! :)
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!!
That's awesome you're going to host your neighbors for a campaign!
Thanks for the great review. :)
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!
Thank you! I'm so glad you're loving Planet Post! :)
Learn how important pollinators are for the world's food supply, and how traditional toxic pesticides are destroying them. Then demand giant supermarket chains to stop buying food grown with these poisons.
Learn how mega-corporations and the plastics industry have convinced us that they're not responsible for the pollution their products cause at end-of-life. Then tell your representatives to pass EPR laws.
Learn how much of our plastic waste problem goes on behind the scenes in factories, warehouses, and stores. Then ask some of the biggest Big Box brands to be leaders in sustainability.
Learn how declaring an official Climate Emergency can free up resources and allow for faster implementation of climate crisis mitigation. Then ask your representatives to support the declaration.
Learn how we waste a 1/3 of our food, and how it is one of the biggest contributors to climate change and environmental degradation. Then ask your representatives to change *specific* laws that could help.
Learn how the fossil fuel industry is propped up by government funds and other incentives, then demanded your reps stop the handouts.
Learn about the GND, and how it integrates jobs, social justice, and an aggressive time frame to stop runaway climate change. Then ask your representatives to support it.
Learn about how corporations are destroying forests that are crucial for the health of the planet in order to produce more meat products. We focus on the worst offender, Cargill, then ask you to write to the biggest companies working with Cargill to demand change.
