Sustainable Packaging Info
We package our shipments in 100% Compostable Mailers that come with two adhesive tapes so they can be reusable. These mailers have a shelf life of 9 months. These are certified compostable mailers that can be broken down fully in a home compost in 180 days or in a commercial compost in 90 days.
These 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. The use of PLA makes up barely 0.05% of the annual global corn crop, making it an incredibly low-impact resource.
Material of the mailers: 30% Corn Starch, 10-15% PLA (polylactic acid made from corn waste and other plants), 55-60% PBAT (biodegradable and will decompose leaving no toxic residues)
Ink Type: Soy Based
We use tissue papers to wrap our products and shy away from using any plastic. Our tissue papers are recycled and is fully home-compostable after use. Our tissue papers are printed with vibrant soy-based inks and also fully breaks down within 180 days in a home compost, and 90 days in a commercial composting facility.
