Shipping Details

Please allow 7 to 10 week days from date of order for delivery. Normal shipping is USPS. UPS Ground shipping is available. Please add an additional $10.00 to regular shipping & handling charges.

Large orders or special UPS delivery based on actual shipping fees. Please call Mother Earth News Shopping Customer Service at 1-800-456-6018 for assistance.

Our estimated shipping dates are based on several factors, including your destination address, how quickly we can obtain and assemble items for shipment (the "usually ships within" time listed on a product's detail page), and whether you have requested that we minimize the number of shipments or ship items as they become available.

We calculate delivery estimates by taking the estimated shipping date and adding the time it takes a package to travel from our facilities to your destination address, based on the shipping speed you've chosen. Orders for multiple items or multiple copies of a single item can take longer to assemble before we're able to ship them to you.

Note that changing your shipping speed will not affect the estimated shipping date, but it will improve the estimated delivery date.
