For local orders
According to carbonclick.com, "packaging makes up at least half of the footprint of an online sale." The carbon dioxide generated for production of paper is 19.9 times lesser than PVC (clear plastic).
Our local courier bags are made from unwaxed paper so that it can be recyclable. Waxed and treated paper bags are non-recyclable.
During wet weathers, we'd still use poly mailers as we do not wish for you to receive parcels with holes.
For International Orders
Made from a combination of corn starch, PLA and PBAT, our new comPOST mailers are certified home compostable and fully bio-degradable mailing satchel. The process of making these mailers features a 60% reduction in CO2 emission compared to traditional plastics and are non-toxic, contains no phthalates or BPA. Certified AS5810.
We may also pack your orders in the waterproof ØPACK Mailers. ØPACK are made from limestone quarry waste and recycled resin, using only renewable solar power, no water, acid or bleaches. For packaging certifications, please click here.
For orders requiring larger packaging, we will be using recyclable corrugated boxes. We will constantly be looking out for better packaging that is made from more eco-friendly materials.
Plastic polymailer will be fully replaced for international orders from Jan 2022.
Please reuse our packaging to send or return another parcel, you can grow some plants with our comPOST bags too.
