To compost our mailers at home, remove any labels or stickers. Then you can optionally cut them up for the fastest composting results.
Also, customers can check whether their local councils allow the disposal of compostable packaging in green bins. If so, they are another fantastic option to dispose of the bags sustainably.
Certified to break down in home compost within 180 days and 90 days in commercial compost.
Our compostable shipping mailers are made from a combination of cornstarch, PLA (vegetable-based plastic material) and PBAT (composting co-polymer).
We've found our bags perform as well, if not better than conventional plastic mailers. They are just as waterproof, flexible and stretchy to prevent breakage and make packing easy. Plus they feel really nice too.
Our mailers can be stored for up to 10 months in the right conditions. They like a dark, cool & dry area to live.
Absolutely. Our mailers are designed and manufactured in strict accordance with Australian standards for degradation and toxicity AS 5180 and AS 4736.
The good news is that even in landfill, Ecomailers are a better solution than conventional plastic mailers, in that they will take 2-3 years to break down instead of 400 years and won't leave behind any toxic residues or microplastics (as they contain 0% plastic). However, similar to food scraps or any other organic waste that goes to landfill, compostable mailers will generate methane. To unlock the full environmental potential of the product, therefore, it is best to compost them where possible.

To make a difference, really. We're two brothers with a background in e-commerce. We realised all the available packaging options either weren't sustainable or designed for online retailers like us. HeapsGood was created to change that. Now we are solely focused on finding solutions that make it easier for you to pack, in a way that's good for the planet.
