Partner With Us and Craft an Event
sign up here to host your own event, and you'll receive an unplugging kit with the following:
Cell Phone Sleeping Bags
Note: Due to overwhelming demand (over 35,000 given away this year!), we are no longer able to send cell phone sleeping bags to organizations for events. however, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how to receive bags when they are in stock.
You name the guest number and we’ll send you the bags. Our tried-and-true method of helping communities unplug - for free.
These hemp and soy-based ink bags provide a natural "sleeping bag" for your phone.
"We" and "I" Unplug To Posters
A fantastic party or event prop. These “Unplug To” posters help engage people around the bigger idea and spark lively conversations. Great for photo booths, icebreakers and displaying on site.

Wondering what kinds of unplugged activities you can create with your communities, organizations or schools? Don't worry, we'll help you out. Our easy to access DIY Toolkit is full of time-tested and group-approved activities, and our National Outreach Manager is on the ready for consultations.

Here's what others have said about unplugging with us:
“I like National Day of Unplugging because it helps bring focus to people that technology is beautiful and awesome and amazing but also needs to be tempered some.” – Brian B.
“NDU showed me that not only could I un-plug, but I could get way out into nature and have that same experience any time I wanted to!” -Erin S.
“In our household, we’ve been trying to unplug more and more every Shabbat. The National Day of Unplugging was that extra level of motivation that we needed to really take it to the next step. I am eager to continue unplugging and exploring new ways to unplug, so as to make our Shabbat that much more memorable!” -Matthew B.
“I found myself slowing down & approaching my activities more deliberately. At first, I was very nervous because I kept thinking that I heard my text messaging & email alerts on my phone. Alas, I picked it up over & over only to discover that it was “unplugged.” Once I got used to my electronic devices being in the “off” position, I didn’t want them back in the “on” position.”-Darian
