We are commited to reducing plastics in our environment. Our post satchels are fully compostible Hero Packs made from biodegradable materials, mainly corn starch and cassava roots.
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.
If you don't compost, your mailer can be sent to composting facilities to be properly broken down and composted. Some councils provide a green waste composting bin.
If your mailer ends up in landfil, it will still break down (with no waste and no methane production). It takes about 2 years rather than 90 days. In contrast, traditional plastic shipping mailers take 400 years or more to break down, and release deadly methane gas into the atmosphere.
