Sustainability - Our compostable packaging
We use Hero compostable mailers to send out all of our orders.
Unlike traditional shipping mailers, these are NOT made from single use plastic. HEROPACKS are made from home-compostable materials, mainly corn starch and PBAT (a compostable ingredient which bonds the renewable ingredients together).
Not only are the mailers compostable but so are the shipping labels and tape.
HOW DO YOU COMPOST THEM?
To compost them at home, cut them up and place in your compost bin as “brown” materials. These will completely break down within 90-120 days in a home-compostable environment - sometimes even sooner!
PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW THEM TO GO TO LANDFILL
In a home-compost, HEROPACK mailers take 90 days to break down. As most landfills are deprived of oxygen, all materials ending up in landfill do not degrade as intended, including our compostable products.
