Corny Facts

To compost our mailers at home, they just need to remove any labels or stickers, unless you're a true fan and sent the package with our compostable Ecostickers or similar. And if they're a busy bee and can be trusted with scissors, they can chop the mailer up to quicken the process.

Our bags can also break down in commercial compost. They can click here and find a composter near them, or ask their local council for a green waste bin if they haven't already got one. They also need to check that their council allows home compostable items to be included as it's done on a council-by-council basis, for now.

Our Ecomailers are certified to break down within 180 days in home compost, and 90 days in commercial compost. They'll be decomposed faster than Hollywood can churn out another Marvel film.

Our compostable shipping mailers are made from a combination of cornstarch, PLA (vegetable-based plastic material) and PBAT (composting co-polymer). If these sound like they'd be great ingredients for a cake, they're not. But the worms love 'em.

Our bags are just as waterproof, flexible, and stretchy as a conventional plastic mailer, meaning they're not prone to breakage and packing is made easy. Plus, they feel fantastic. Give a sample pack a squish today.

Our mailers can be stored for up to 10 months in the right conditions. They like a dark, cool, and dry area to live, much like someone past their mid-twenties with a hangover.

Absolutely. Our mailers are designed and manufactured in strict accordance with Australian standards for degradation and toxicity AS 5180 and AS 4736.

Even in landfill, Ecomailers are a better solution than plastic mailers. Because they're made from fully compostable polymer, they'll decompose without leaving behind any toxic residues or microplastics. They also decompose in 2 - 3 years, as opposed to the 300+ it takes a traditional plastic mailer. Slowpoke.

Similar to food scraps or any other organic waste that goes into landfill however, compostable mailers will break down releasing methane if they're put in the landfill. So if you want to be a really good mate to the environment, put them in the compost.

We wouldn't. But if you really, really want to try, we recommend checking you've got private health insurance first.

P.S. In case you need it spelled out, do not eat the Ecomailers.

Ordering & Payments

Ah, so you like the good stuff. Come this way. Everything from 500 units to 5k units on our website is wholesale pricing, with discount breaks included. So if you're looking for orders over 5k pieces, get in touch here.

Sure do! Head here to grab one for yourself.

Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, Afterpay, Zip Pay, plus the usual Mastercard and Visa.

If you have any problems with your order within 30 days of receiving it, hit us up and we'll organise the return and refund your money immediately. That's the HeapsGood happiness guarantee. 

Exchanges 
With the eagerness of a thousand golden retrievers. We're happy to exchange any orders for wrong sizes or the like within the Golden 30. Items need to be returned in an unused and saleable condition, meaning you need to return your Ecomailers before they go in the compost.

Credits
Any returns or exchanges that fall outside of 30 days will be processed on a case-by-case basis. While bribes are encouraged and shamelessly accepted, we can only offer a credit or exchange in these situations. As before, products need to be returned in an unused and saleable condition. If they come back with any weird smells, we'll be handing them straight over to the FBI.

If you've already made a purchase with us but didn't set up an account, just head here to create one. Enter the same email used for your order and choose your password (don't even think about making it password123. That's ours). Your new account will automatically add any past transactions that you've made, and even let you download old invoices!

Custom Mailers

Hell yeah - for a price. For bulk order quantities strictly starting at 20k units and up, we offer a fully tailored service that will put your brand on our mailers. Head here to get the ball rolling.

Unfortunately, making custom mailers for smaller quantities isn't a possibility due to the cost, and because we wanna keep doing our best by the environment.
