Plastic Free The Book, Twitter Party and Giveaways

Beth Terry of has published a new book called "Plastic Free How I kicked the habit and you can too." Beth has previously reviewed my Cinnamon Tooth Powder on her blog and I hear she has mentioned my deodorant in her new book.  I haven't read her book yet, but I would love to learn all her tips and trips.  In support of her new book and cause I am donating one of my slide tin lip balms the upcoming #ecoetsy/ #plasticfreebeth twitter party which will be hosted by the EcoEtsy Team Monday June 25th from 9-10 pm EST.  Search #plasticfreebeth in twitter Monday night to follow along with the party.  Beth will be giving away one of her books and there will be other prizes from the EcoEtsy Team like these lovely reusable silk bags for bulk foods from kootsac.

Also if you can't make it to the chat, be sure at least to check out Beth Terry's talk on TED.  I had not seen her talk until recently, and I found it very inspiring.  After watching it I decided to do something that I have been wanting to do for a long time, which is switch over to paper tape for packing orders.  It was more than I was used to spending on tape, because it comes by the case and has to be shipped.  I'm still a little nervous about using a tape that has to be moistened first, but I'm looking forward to it.  Big thanks to Anne Nguyen of Shanti Aromatherapy and Daytona Etsy Team Member for switching over to paper tape with me.  She and I co-oped together to stock up on it and split up a case.
