- As of July 2020, we have begun using 100% compostable mailers to ship your items that can fit into soft packaging.
- From noissue,
"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. Read on for further certifications and information.
The bags are certiﬁed by TUV Austria; 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."
- Starting August 2020, we will begin using 100% recycled, 32 ECT corrugated cardboard, Econoflex shipping boxes.
- From Packlane,
"We created Econoflex, made from 100% recycled and recyclable materials, because we care deeply about our ecological footprint. We are passionate about sustainability and committed to sourcing all of our corrugated and paper-based materials in North America with the highest recycled content whenever possible. As we continue to innovate, our commitment to eco-friendly packaging will remain our greatest priority."
