The Mend’s bioplastics are made from a biopolymer of corn starch, while mimicking the properties of a traditional plastic mailer. They are made from renewable materials, that are biobased, and are biodegradable and industrially compostable. While the minimum quantity is high, our mailers are unique because there is no fossil fuel based content and is strictly made from materials sourced from nature. Bioplastic mailers are a versatile and lightweight option for garment coverings and logistics packaging. They can be customised to your design and dimensions.

Vegetable-based inks, which forego petroleum oil in favor of more sustainable sources like soy, linseed, tung, cottonseed, and china wood oils
Industrial composting can deal with a broader range of compostable products and operates in a highly controlled setting with specific temperatures and conditions. Industrial composting is able to apply a far higher temperature to the already pre-processed packaging material. The high heat breaks the packaging down even further, hastening the decomposition.
