Features:

It looks and feels just like plastic, but it's not. Not even close.

It is a 100% biodegradable, home-compostable shipping mailer and is made from PBAT (a copolymer that is completely biodegradable) and PLA (which is a fancy way of saying corn starch).

In a commercial compostable environment, it will break down within 90 days. 

Make sure that you store them in a cool dry place at 20-25 degrees Celsius to maintain a maximum shelf-life of 18 months and to ensure the adhesive strips will adhere correctly

Achieving the home compostable certification means they completely break down to CO2, water and biomass within 24 weeks in a home composting environment - leaving no toxins or nasty substances behind.

The best bits:

  • Small logo on the front so you can put your own label or sticker on there to make it feel more like your company's packaging.
  • Premium black gloss finishes differentiate our compostable mailers from white plastic mailers.
  • You can apply your existing shipping labels directly to the mailer.
  • Waterproof to keep shipments safe from rain.
  • The compostable mailers are tough, durable and amazing!

Certifications:

OK Home Compost - European certification for home compostable packaging
OK Compost Industrial - European certification for industrially compostable packaging
ABA Home Compost - Australasian certification for home compostable packaging
ABA Industrial - Australasian certification for industrially compostable packaging
ASTM D6400the American Society for Testing and Materials for compostability

Don't be caught out by that nasty biodegradable stuff that has chemicals added to it so that it can degrade in the environment. It's basically just plastic with more nastiness added to it to make it "eco-friendly" when it really isn't.

If it doesn't say that it's 100% compostable and is certified by the ABA and or the TUV (the global leader in compostable certification), then it's not truly eco-friendly!

Compostable products FAQ

Like to know more about our compostable mailers, labels, bubble wrap, etc?

All of our compostable Zero Pack mailers, bubble wrap, labels, ZeroWrap, ZeroTape and other packaging solutions are all certified according to any or all of the following:

tuv-en-13432-ok-home-compost

zero-pack-as4736

zero-pack-as5810

This means that every single one of our 100% compostable products are exactly that, 100% compostable, either home compostable or industrial compostable.

To find out more about compostable products check out this article about greenwashing.

 

What are they made from?

Our compostable mailers, bubble wrap, packaging and ZeroWrap are all made from corn starch (corn that is no longer fit for consumption), PLA (Polylactide, which is made from waste corn too and other plants) and PBAT (Polybutyrate Adipate Terephthalate). Even the ink is made from non-toxic materials which means that they are even safe to go in a worm farm!

Our compostable tape is a world first and is made from predominantly sustainable raw materials: The carrier is made from renewable or recyclable material and coated with natural rubber adhesive, by monta in Germany. The product core for all current and future Green line tapes is made from recycled paper, the shipping carton and label are FSC certified and therefore 100% sustainable.

Our compostable labels are made from paper and the adhesive is made from a high percentage of renewable materials and are certified EN13432 compostable.

All these products have been certified 100% compostable. Check out our range here.

 

Where can I compost them?

If you don't have your own compost setup at home, consider checking out starting your own. Australian residents can even save up to 80% through their local council. Check it out here

If that's not an option for you you can start one through your workplace by teaming up with PlanetArk or at home with your local neighbourhood with ShareWaste. Otherwise, find a local compost facility with PlanetArk.

 

 

How different are they to plastic mailers?

The compostable material looks and feels just like plastic! In fact it's even a little bit stretchy as well and can also be written on with markers (just make sure they're non-toxic!)

They have all the benefits of plastic with none of the nasty stuff! They're tough, durable, waterproof, writeable and tear-resistant.

 

How long do they take to break down?

Our home compostable products will break down in a home compost environment in 90-180 days and if it is industrially compostable then it will break down within 90 days in a commercial compost environment.

They have to meet these requirements to be certified.

 

How long is the shelf-life of them?

Our compostable products should always be kept in a cool dry place. The optimum temperature for them is around 20-25 degrees Celsius. Humidity and moisture will speed up the composting process so make sure to keep them cool and dry in storage.

When looked after they will last around 12-18 months.

But don't worry, they won't start to disintegrate in your hands! Just like us they start to get wrinkly when they're old!!
