Plastic-Free Holiday Gift Packs Have Arrived!


I’m so excited to let you know that after a month of being held up by Hurricane Sandy and other weather on the East Coast, the second printing of my book, Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too has finally arrived in the warehouse!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I put together an educational holiday gift pack to help spread the message that there are so many things all of us can do to reduce plastic in our lives and solve the plastic pollution problem.


The pack includes a signed, beautifully designed hardback copy of Plastic-Free.  Click here to learn more about the book.  And click here to view images of the book inside and out.   The regular retail price is  $19.95.

The pack also includes a copy of the DVD Bag It: Is Your Life Too Plastic?, my favorite documentary, and not just because it’s about plastic and certainly not just because I have a cameo in it, but because it’s really good! It combines the right amount of serious information with just the right amount of humor.  Jeb, the protagonist of the film, is a regular fun guy who one day wakes up to all the plastic in his life and decides to learn all about it.  Along the way, he and his partner get pregnant and he becomes even more concerned about plastic in their lives.  It’s a great film to share with friends who ask what’s the big deal about plastic.


Yes, the DVD itself is plastic, but the packaging is plastic-free.  The Bag It crew discovered a material called Paper Foam, which takes the place of plastic in DVD cases.

The regular retail price of Bag It DVD is $29.95.

And finally,  the pack includes your choice of cotton gift bag, which can be reused to hold a gift for someone else or for produce or foods from the bulk bins.  The bags are from Green Planet Parties, whose owner, Suzanne Wheatley Bertani, got tired of all the plastic goodie bags filled with plastic toys and unhealthy candy that her kids were bringing home from parties and decided to create a site where people could find better alternatives.  These gift bags are actually goodie bags.  There are three designs:  stripes, dots, and flowers.  I decided not to get bags that had images of a specific holiday on them so that they could be more versatile.  But I do think the striped one looks the most Christmasy, if that’s your holiday.  The regular retail price $2.95.

Purchased separately, these items would total $52.85 plus shipping.  But I am selling these gift packs for… $37.50 plus shipping.

Happy Holidays!

By the way, the cloth bags are handmade by mom in Canada. They can be reused for gifts OR for bulk bin purchases or whatever else your heart desires.

Peter De Boeck, recycling doesn’t solve the problem of toxic additives in plastics, nor is it necessarily eco-friendly when you look at the conditions of most of our plastic recycling in China. Energy reduction is only one factor.

Larisa Lieberman, I’ve shipped quite a few books to the U.K. Email me if you’d like, and I can figure out what the shipping cost would be for you. beth [at] myplasticfreelife [dot] com.

All thermo-hardening plastics can perfectly be recycled, things made of them are generally light weighted compared to their glass equivalents and as such cost less energy to transport. One just has to collect them separately.

Just watched the trailer. Good stuff!

Very cool, Beth. Congrats on your 2nd printing — im going to check out green planet parties
