How Our Rental Service Works
Green Planet Films is an online film sales and rental service providing its users with access to a comprehensive library of nature and environmental films. Our current rental service, Pay-Per-Rental, allows users to rent any one title for a fifteen day period at the rental fee listed for that particular film. DVD rentals are for home viewing or for use in a classroom setting only. Most films in our library have a rental fee of $7.99. The fifteen day period begins from the 'mailed to you' date printed on the prepaid DVD mailer and ends on the 'return to us' date also printed on the prepaid DVD mailer. The rented DVD must be inserted into the prepaid mailer and postmarked by the 'return to us' date to avoid an additional charge. If the prepaid mailer with the DVD is not postmarked by the 'return to us' date, the difference of the purchase price and rental price will be charged to the user. Films with a rental fee higher than $7.99 are available for the same fifteen day period and subject to all of its same conditions. There are no shipping charges for any film rented under the Pay-Per-Rental plan. Under this plan, visitors select titles at our website, pay the rental fee through our website, receive them on DVD by U.S. mail and return them using prepaid mailers.
