Purple Shipping Mailers
Finally! Our purple shipping mailers have arrived! We have been waiting and waiting to launch these! It took 3 rounds of sampling to get the colour right. Not too light, not too dark. Juuuuust right. This is our latest certified Home-Compostable HEROPACK.
It looks and feels like plastic, but it's not. Not even close. It is a 100% home-compostable shipping mailer and is made from 70-80% PBAT (a co-polymer that is completely compostable) and 20-30% PLA (which is a fancy way of saying cornstarch).
In a commercial compostable environment, it will break-down within 90 days. At home, it may take up to 120 days.
Please note: These mailers are semi-translucent. We recommend packaging your products in a bag or wrapping that is opaque so the products can't be seen through the packaging. The translucency of the HEROPACK material is due to the nature of the renewable ingredients used. There are strict rules to be in compliance with the Australian home-compostable certification from ABA, and this is the most important factor for us. If you are looking for no transparency, we recommend our black compostable mailers.
- Small HEROPACK logo in grey/white on the front
- Double adhesive strip so your customers can re-use the bags
- Premium matte finish to differentiate our compostable mailers from glossy plastic mailers.
- You can apply your existing shipping labels or write directly onto the mailer.
- Waterproof to keep shipments safe from rain.
- Dimensions of the mailer now mentioned on the back for ease of re-ordering.
- Our compostable mailers are tough and durable.

Please note: If you're shipping any products which have sharp corners or edges (such as shoe boxes), it's best to trial a couple of shipments with our mailers to ensure everything performs as expected. In order to remain certified home-compostable, our mailers can't be too thick like evil plastic mailers, so sharp corners could sometimes cause damage. Other than that, HEROPACK mailers have a high weight load rating and can withstand all the hard knocks during the shipping process.
Product shelf life: as our compostable mailers are made using renewable ingredients, they have a shelf life of approximately 9-12 months when kept in cool and dry conditions, out of direct sunlight. This should be considered when ordering mailers in bulk. We recommend ordering for a 3-6 month period of shipments.
Hero Packaging's HEROPACK purple shipping bags are an innovative, environment-friendly alternative to traditional mailers. The reason? Despite looking and feeling like plastic, they're 100% home-compostable and break down within just 90-120 days. These features alone distinguish them from the dull, wasteful plastic mailers that end up in landﬁll across Australia.
What Sets Hero Packaging Mailers Apart
The quality of these purple postage bags can't be beaten. They're waterproof, tough, and outﬁtted with a double adhesive strip that allows them to be reused over and over again. The durability of these mailers comes from their quality materials: a blend of 70-80% PBAT (compostable co-polymer) and 20-30% PLA (cornstarch).
They're also gorgeous to look at and sure to leave a positive impression. The deep purple colour has a matte finish and styled with a subtle, grey/white HEROPACK logo on the front.
