We want to be transparent as a business so you always know what's happening! So this information is constantly updated as we continue to take more steps towards sustainability.
Compostable Mailer Sleeves
Shipping items is a costly process, both in monetary value and on the environment. In far too many cases the footprint left from packaging is harmful to the environment.
This is why we have decided to eliminate so much of the packaging we were using to send your products. We now use compostable mailer sleeves by Heaps Good Packaging to package your items instead of extra boxes and tapes.
These mailers are made from cornstarch and contain 0% plastics. They can be placed in your home compost or in a commercial compost and will break down within:
90 Days - Commercial Compost
180 Days - Home Compost
How To Break The Mailer Down As Fast As Possible
Step 1: Remove and stickers or labels.
Step 2: Cut the mailer into small pieces (The smaller the better).
Step 3: Add the mailer pieces into your regular compost.
... That's it!
If you do not have access to a compost at home, ask your local café if they mind composting your waste. Always be nice to them when you ask :)
