Sustainability of packaging materials

Here’s an example from Everyday Wine, which uses corrugated boxes for its wine bottles.

Compostable refers to the ability of a material to naturally decompose back into the earth, ideally without leaving any toxic residue. Sustainability of packaging materials Compostable packaging materials are usually made from plant-based materials (like corn, sugar cane, or bamboo) and/or bio-poly mailers.

It's important to note that for a material to be truly considered compostable, it should be able to break down in home compost within 180 days and 90 days in commercial composting conditions.

noissue’s Compostable Mailer is one example of certified compostable packaging material. It's created from a combination of PBAT, a biodegradable and compostable polymer, and PLA, which is made from plant-based resources like corn and wheat straw.

Environmentally friendly packaging materials can also come in the form of recycled packaging. These are items that give a second life to plastics that are already in circulation.

By using recycled materials, you're able to conserve natural resources, reduce the amount of waste in landfills, and prevent pollution by limiting the need to collect raw materials.
