Our mailers are breaking new ground pardon the pun - they are completely compostable.
Our 100% Compostable Mailer is a great step towards sustainable packaging, and can be composted both at home and commercially. Break it down with us.
Our compostable mailers are made from a combination of PBAT, a bio based polymer which is compostable, and PLA which is made up of plant materials such as regular ﬁeld corn and wheat straw. Our use of PLA makes up barely 0.05% of the annual global corn crop, making it an incredibly low-impact resource.
The bags are certiﬁed by all three industry certiﬁers; TUV Austria, BPI and Dincerto, meeting American, European, International and Australian standards – including certiﬁcations for your domestic home compost. To gain these certiﬁcations, the product must break down within 90 days in commercial compost and 180 days in domestic compost conditions, including worm farm compost. After degradation, they must leave no harmful residues behind.
Our custom paper stickers are sustainable and made from acid free paper and printed in soy-based inks. They meet the following certifications: FSC Certified.
Our plain white tissue paper is acid free and biodegradable and made from 100% recycled paper.
Our branded tissue paper is printed in soy-based inks on acid free paper and is FSC Certified.
The FSC or Forest Stewardship Council certifies that the paper products that make up our custom printed stickers are sourced from a forest and supply chain that is managed responsibly and sustainably. FSC forest management standards are developed at an international level, and are then adapted to individual countries’ legal, social, and geographical settings, through national standards.
Acid Free Paper
Our paper stickers are made from cellulose fiber where the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing. The pulp is also lignin- and sulfur-free, meaning that our ink won’t transfer from the stickers and the paper won’t leave behind any of these chemicals when decomposing.
Soy inks are an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based inks, made from soybeans, a renewable resource. While soy inks are slower to dry than many inks, the process produces more vibrant colors as well as having the added benefit of not leaving behind petroleum based products when decomposing. Finally, soy inks have low levels of VOCs, reducing air pollution during the drying process.
