Don't judge a parcel by its packaging...
As an online retailer it is important to us to be as sustainable as possible to protect our environment. In this industry, it can be a challenging task, but we are promising to limit our plastic waste and do what we can to be as eco-friendly as possible to minimise our footprint. When it comes to shipping, it is important that we deliver you your product in the best way possible for the environment, to make you feel good about shopping with us!
We are proud to say that we have joined the HEROPACK, an eco-friendly packaging solution! In efforts to reduce the amount of plastic waste in our environment we are saying NO to plastic, one mailer at a time!
What is HEROPACK?
HEROPACK are zero waste mailers that are made from cornstarch and cassava roots. They will break down in 90 days in a compostable environment and leave no waste or toxins behind.
How do you compost them?
Ideally, these should be sent to composting facilities to be properly broken down and composted. However, to compost them at home, it’s best to cut them up and place in your compost bin (as “brown” materials). These will completely break down within 90 days in a compostable environment.
What if they end up in a landfill?
They still break down (with no waste and no methane production) in landfill! It will take about 2 years rather than 90 days. Conversely, traditional plastic shipping mailers take 400 years or more to break down, and release deadly methane gas into the atmosphere.
