Why Choose our Compostable Postal Bags
When it comes to posting a cornucopia of items, plastic mailer bags were widely accepted to be the packaging solution of choice as they offer dependable product protection and a suppleness and flexibility that makes posting them an affordable doddle. The only thing that they lack is eco-elegance; until now! Introducing our milky white, semi-transparent, fully compostable, Earth-conscious mailing bags. With these, you can rest assured knowing that not only can you still send items in an affordable and adequately protected way, you'll also be doing your part to protect our planet, because:
- Our compostable postage bags are made right here in the UK from GM-free potato starch, organic biopolymers and innovative plasticiser-free thermoplastics; all-natural, sustainable and vegan-friendly resources
Our environmentally responsible postal bags are 100 per cent biodegradable and are completely compostable. EN13432-certified and approved for home composting by OK Compost; they'll completely degrade in commercial composting plants - and at home in a compost heap - without leaving any toxic chemicals or other nasties behind
Primarily designed for pure packaging convenience and available at a nominal cost to you, our biodegradable mailing bags are thick; strong and don't require any further adhesives to make them tamper-proof
As our compostable mailer bags are semi-transparent, we recommend that when shipping items, private documents or products to wrap those articles in tissue paper or Kraft paper first, purely so inquisitive people can't see what it is you're sending
- Once our eco mailer bags have been sealed and opened and no further use can be found for them, they can be placed in compost piles or food waste recycling bins for an easy, eco-friendly disposal
Storage & Usage
Important Note on Sealing Our Compostable Mailer Bags
Due to the nature of the materials we use, the peel 'n' seal strip requires the biodegradable mailing bags to be left at room temperature for several hours to form a permanent seal.
Our environmentally friendly postage bags should be stored somewhere cool, dry and away from direct sunlight as if left near sources of heat and humidity, they'll start to degrade, what with being fully compostable and all. As such, our biodegradable mailing bags should all be used within six months of delivery.
Our environmentally friendly postal bags are governed and endorsed by OK Compost and are EN13432-certified. This means that our chemical-free, biobased mailing bags are internationally recognised as being fully compostable and biodegradable both at home and at commercial composting sites. In industrial composting units, our mailer bags will disintegrate in less than three months; in domestic composting facilities this time will vary but will typically take longer than 90 days.
