Yellow Shipping Mailers
Finally! Our yellow shipping mailers have arrived! 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 translucent. We highly 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.
Another important thing to remember: Over time, because of the soy based ink, the colour of these mailers can run and transfer so please make sure to always use something to cover your products (like our INNERHERO bags) before putting it in the HEROPACK.
- Small HEROPACK logo in black on the front
- Double adhesive strip so your customers can re-use the bag
- 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.

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 yellow shipping bags are both high-quality and eco-friendly. They're 100% compostable and made of 70-80% PBAT (compostable co-polymer) and 20-30% PLA (cornstarch). These materials are what make the mailers so durable, while also ensuring that they'll break down within 90-120 days.
