We have a winner!  Congratulations to Erin Stiles on winning the $50 coupon for the Life Without Plastic store!

Help us improve your Life Without Plastic experience… and win a plastic-free shopping spree!

Anyone who sends us a comment about our new website by email, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or on this blog post will receive one entry to win a $50 coupon to use in the Life Without Plastic web store.

The comments can be as simple as “nice layout” or “that color scheme needs work” or describe a typo or a display/navigation/technical issue . . . anything you see that you think could be improved.

We know we’re not perfect — thankfully, how boring that would be! — so any feedback is deeply appreciated.

The contest runs for the next two weeks, until Friday, 25 April 2014, and on that day we will randomly choose the winner from all entries.

  10. Thank you Debbie, for your feedback which is much appreciated! You are entered in the contest to win a $50 shopping spree. Regarding glass safety, it is a good idea to be trust your glass source. With Chinese glass, it totally depends on the supplier. You want to be sure the glass is lead-free. We do not currently source any glass from China, only from Korea and the US. And of course, we only source from suppliers we trust.

  14. Hi!
    Lot of wonderful products!
    Love the info section! I’ll have to come back to read some articles. Thanks.

  15. This was my first visit here and I easily found the information I have been seeking about glass products. The site seems easy to navigate and is full of helpful info and good products.

  16. I just stumbled upon your website. I am hoping to learn how to remove even more plastic from my life and which glass is safe to use since some is made in China and I don’t know if that is a good thing or not!

  21. I am trying to live without plastic already for 2 years! I love your new homepage as I always find some products which I am able to replace!

  22. I’d love to see more definition in the drop down menus since they sort of blend into the main page… make them pop! :) other than that I love your site!!!

  23. Thank you Hollis, for your feedback which is much appreciated! You are entered in the contest to win a $50 shopping spree.

  24. Thank you Jane, for your feedback which is much appreciated!

    As per the measurements of the lid you mention the glass container you lost should be the Rectangular Small Glass Container. You can check for the dimensions of every product in the ‘Additional Information’ tab next to the ‘Details’ tab on every product page.

  25. Catherine,
    Merci pour votre commentaire et pour votre fidélité. Nous espérons poursuivre ce beau projet le plus longtemps possible. Ce sont nos fantastiques clients comme vous qui nous permettent d’exister.

  26. Hi, folks,
    Like Sally’s comment, I would like to see some more dimensions added for some of the food storage items. (I note that you do volume and height measurements for some.) I’ve just broken the glass body of one of my containers [lid measures 13 cm x17.5 cm] and not sure what size this is called.
    Really impressed that you have added so much support and research material. Not all entrepreneurs care to do so; I applaud you!
    The new site is easier to navigate and hopefully expandable and useful for you needs. Thanks. Jane DN

  27. Thank you Bob, for your feedback which is much appreciated! You are entered in the contest to win a $50 shopping spree.

  28. We as a family want to decrease our use of plastics so they do not end up in a landfill. We also know some plastics contain nasty chemicals. Love this site and we just found it today!

  29. Love the new website, and absolutely love your products! The site is very easy to navigate… I appreciate the scrolling "best seller" list. Keep up the great work!

  34. It’s a beautiful, easy to navigate, informative website. My only suggestion is that after an item is put in the wishlist, I couldn’t easily navigate back to the page I was shopping on. When I hit "back" it took me to a general page.

  35. Just in love with the new website! It is so much easier to navigate and I feel like I can find more items even quicker than before! Thanks again!! :)

    Much Love, CC.

  39. Love the detailed writeups on products, but I find the pages before you get that deep in a bit overwhelming–lots of text on the sidebars pulls my attention away, maybe?

    Your products are awesome, though–thank you!

  41. Wow, quelle transformation. J’ai encore en souvenir vos débuts dans ce magnifique projet ( hint: entrevue avec Chantal il y a plusieurs années ;). C’est très inspirant de voir le cheminement que vous avez fait depuis que vous avez démarré cette belle vision et d’autant plus, il était grand temps qu’une entreprise puisse offrir une belle variété de produits innovateurs et durable!
    Une excellente continuation à vous,

    Cordialement,

    AC

  42. Thank you Kimberley, for your helpful feedback! The Pet Care link is fixed and working fine now. You are entered in the contest

  43. Layout and color very nice. I love shopping here because all of the products I have purchased have been quality. I clicked on "pet " and got a variety of items most not associated with pets.

  44. I like the changes–there is a typo on the “10 tips” page, though: in “alternatives to every day plastic products,” “every day” should be “everyday.”

  45. Bonjour,
    I’am from Quebec and used to your website.
    I like your new website and the new functionalities like points program and easier gift registry, that’s great!

    I always come to your site to seek for new items. I can’t surf in it for hours… and wishing to buy a lot of stuff. I really like products made locally but also those from Japan and Germany. We found here! exclusive products from elsewhere that we can’t find anywhere else for shipping in Canada.
    Iam often looking for sleek and minimalistic design from scandinavia and Japan.
    The only critic I would make is, it would be nice if the shipping could be free over some amount of money! like over 50, 75 or 100$. I like new overall website design, but there’s some graphic design items that clashes with the global design. Maybe some Outdoor section, with hammock, seats or camping stuff, as you already have some sporks (spoon/fork), plates and cups…
    For instance, the upper right area of the website is kind of awkward and pixelated! also I’am not sure about the parchment paper background… but I really like the retro lady reading the newspaper on her coach asking to sign up for newsletter. :)
    Well! I hope that could be an helpful review for you… thank you for your website and hope thant we could recruit more and more people everyday for a life style without plastic or much less plastic. 😉
    Good luck!

    ps. sorry for my english! i’am a french speaking person. 😉

    • Vivre Sans Plastique: Bonjour Sébastien!

      Merci infiniment pour vos commentaires – très appréciés, et très perspicaces! Vous êtes toujours bienvenue de communiquer avec nous en français si vous préférez; mais votre anglais est superbe.
      We are constantly looking at options for minimizing the shipping costs. This is a difficult one because we are a small company and the rates with the carriers are regularly increasing making shipping costs one of our largest expenses. The current flat rates we charge are a definite saving over the actual rates we pay, but your point is well taken, and we do occasionally do shipping specials (generally announced to those on our e-mail newsletter mailing list, our blog and FB and Twitter pages).
      So glad to hear your feedback on the products – we are constantly looking for and adding new innovative plastic-free products from around the world – some neat new ones coming from Japan soon!
      Your comments on the website design are superb and appreciated, and will all be considered seriously as we “tweak” the site.
      Wishing you all the best on your plastic-free journey.

  46. Thank you Sally, for your feedback which is much appreciated! You are entered in the contest to win a $50 shopping spree.

    For your information you can find the volume / capacity details for the product under the ‘Additional Information’ tab next to the ‘Details’ tab on every product page. But we will soon add the dimension details to the main description part to make it much easier to find.

  47. It would be great if you put the dimensions of your products so people could better figure out which products interest them.
