We use biodegradable and home compostable mailers from Better Packaging and Hero Packaging for all our deliveries.
Please read the amazing properties of these striking black mailers. If only all production of plastic products could be this environmentally friendly.
comPOST Pack materials have been certified AS 5810-2010 for Home Composting, meaning they will be completely degraded by microorganisms in the natural world under compost conditions. Ultimately this generates carbon dioxide and water and does not pollute the environment.
*The certification requirements are for 95% degradation within 180 days
It looks and feels a hellavalot like plastic, but it's not. Not even close. It is a 100% home-compostable shipping mailer and is made from 70-80% PBAT (a co-polymer that is completely compostable) and 20-30% PLA (which is a fancy way of saying cornstarch).
In a commercial compostable environment, it will break-down within 90 days. At home, it may take up to 120 days.
