Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plansSustainable, Responsible, and determined to reduce our impact on the environment. SR Mailing has seen the vast amount of waste generated by the eCommerce industry and is dedicated to making a change! Our mission is to adopt a zero-waste concept that considers the complete lifecycle of a product from collectible materials all the way to end-of-life disposal, completely abandoning the idea of a linear economy/usage. Recycled content is one of our main fortes when developing our product line. We also work with Climate Partner to make our products carbon neutral - the first being our grey mail bag range!Sustainability initiativesWe are proud to announce we now source our own recycled LDPE pellets for our factories in China. Our process now involves exporting collectible materials for recycling into 100% recycled environmentally friendly mail bags. Currently, 95% of our products are earth-friendly. We offset 249,430kg of carbon emissions via the Hydropower project in Virunga, DR Congo.

Those three layers are still incredibly lightweight though, meaning that they won’t add to your shipping costs unnecessarily. Although they are made from polythene, they are made from 100% recycled materials, and as long as the adhesive strip has been removed, they can be recycled again too. This makes them a great choice for businesses that want to highlight their eco-credentials.Compostable Mailing BagsThis product is made from totally biodegradable and compostable material, corn starch, PLA, and PBAT. PLA is a bio-based, biodegradable material made from renewable plant material ( starches such as corn husks, rice straw, and wheat straw ). This combination of materials represents a 60% reduction in CO2 emission compared with traditional plastic, is non-toxic, no BPA Certificated AS5810 for home Composting, this certification requirement is for 95% degradation within 180 daysPapper Padded EnvelopesNormal bubble envelopes made from plastic linen and kraft paper made it’s very difficult to recycle, the out layer of our paper padded envelop made from 100% recycled paper and we replace the inner plastic bubble line with just paper. Being made from 100% recycled paper means that our padded envelopes are easy to dispose of at the end of their useful lives. Almost all homes are able to add them to their kerbside recycling collections since they are fully recyclable, but where that isn’t an option, they are also naturally biodegradable (with the glue strip removed) and can be composted. Our paper padded envelopes aren’t just a great option for the environment though. They look professional, and the Kraft exterior can be custom printed, have labels applied, or have a handwritten address added.AT THE FAIRNEW TO THE FAIRCertified sustainable products by third partyCERTIFIEDCertified byClimate-neutralPackagingOur packaging is made with recycled contentMaterialsWe have products made from recycled materialsIn July 2021, we partnered up with the Chinese Government in Shandong to recycle 5 million kilograms of ginger film formerly used for agricultural activities.
