Compostable Packaging

We are proud members of HERO PACKAGING's League of Heroes - a group committed to online retailers who are saying
NO TO PLASTIC - one mailer at a time.​

***Please note: Our mailer bags come with a double adhesive strip and are re-usable.

WHAT EXACTLY ARE THEY MADE FROM?​

HEROPACKS are made from home-compostable materials, mainly corn starch and PBAT (a compostable ingredient which bonds the renewable ingredients together).​

HOW DO WE COMPOST THEM?​

To compost your mailer bag at home, cut them up and place in your compost bin as “brown” materials. There's no need to remove the shipping label because our labels are also home compostable!

These will completely break down within 90-120 days in a home-compostable environment - sometimes even sooner! These can also be sent to composting facilities to be properly broken down and composted. If you are in Australia, please CLICK HERE to find a composter near you. You can also ask your local council if they can provide a composting green bin for you. Another great option is to visit www.sharewaste.com to find a local home-composting enthusiast near you!​

WHAT HAPPENS IF THEY END UP IN LANDFILL?​

The best part is that they still break down in landfill. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the landfill process, this will still add to methane production. That's why it's important to compost to take full advantage of the environmental benefits. HEROPACK mailers take about 90 days rather than 2 years to break down in landfill. In contrast, traditional plastic shipping mailers take 400 years or more to break down and still release deadly methane gas into the atmosphere.
