Compostable Mailers

     minliving Compostable Mailers are made from a combination of PBAT and modified cornstarch and are certified 100% compostable under industrial and home compost environments. They are NOT made of plastic and are a more sustainable way of packing and shipping products. 

The Benefits of

Compostable Mailers

     Compostable mailers are truly a great alternative to using plastic mailers. While we recognize the benefits of recycling, we cannot rely on the recycling industry alone to handle the plastic solution. Instead, we need a long term, widespread solution. A practical and feasible solution is making the switch to compostable mailers. Unlike plastics, compostable mailers biodegrade and compost at the end of their lives. The good news is minliving Compostable Mailers are designed to be home compostable so we can physically see how our mailers compost.

How to Compost

      Composting is not difficult at all. In fact, it’s quite simple and can be done in five easy steps. You can start with preparing your compost bin where you put a good ratio of brown materials and green materials. Brown materials* are materials that are high in carbon such as dead leaves, plants, shredded cardboard, saw, wood chips, and saw dust. Our minliving compostable mailers can fit in this category. Green materials*, on the other hand, are materials high in nitrogen such as grass clippings, food and vegetables scraps, and mostly kitchen waste. A good ratio of brown materials and green materials allow for a successful compost.

 

   To compost minliving compostable mailers, first remove any labels or tape on minliving compostable mailers. Make sure there are no adhesive strips, labels, or tape left on the mailer. Second, cut them into strips so that it would compost faster. Next, place it into your compost bins together with your brown materials and eventually add green materials while following the 3:1 ratio. After putting it together, turn your compost bin from time to time to aerate it. This process of allowing air to come helps in breaking down the compost faster.

That’s how simple composting our mailers is!
