Sustainable Packaging

What packaging do you use to send out your Sustainabags products?

We are so excited to have HERO Packaging as our mailers! HEROPACKS are made from home-compostable materials, mainly corn starch and PBAT (a compostable ingredient which bonds the renewable ingredients together). 

Why HERO Packaging?

Not only do HERO PACKAGING make Earth-saving, compostable, zero-waste packaging products that are also kinda cute. But don't let the cuteness fool you. Their company is serious about making a difference, just like us here at Sustainabags!

We are all about helping and protecting the environment in any way we can and to try to eliminate the use of plastic where we can. 

We also LOVE that HERO are founded by an Aussie husband and wife duo who are committed to removing plastic from packaging. We are all about supporting Local Aussies and we are so excited to share with you our Sustainabags products within these bright, cute and earth-saving fun packaging!

How do we compost them?

To compost them at home, it’s best to remove any labels, cut them up and place in your compost bin as “brown” materials. These will completely break down within 90-120 days in a home-compostable environment - sometimes even sooner!

What's the difference between compostable and biodegradable?

In short, a biodegradable product simply breaks down into smaller micro-plastics which still contaminate the environment. Certified home-compostable products break down as if they were never there, and can also be safely eaten by worms. Therefore, a compostable product is always more preferable over a biodegradable product.

How do I care for my Sustainabags products?
