  1. Well, almost but not quite. The outer package is paper. But the inner DVD sleeve is actually Dupont Tyvek, which is polyethylene. I’ve written about it here: http://myplasticfreelife.com/2007/10/recycling-tyvek-another-small-way-to/

    I have a Netflix subscription and justify it because the plastic gets used over and over, and I’m not buying anything new. But it is plastic.
