Frequently Asked Questions
Zero waste packaging?
- All of our packaging can be either recycled, compostable, or biodegradable. This is great because this is not the way we want to leave our mark on this earth!
Is your packaging eco-friendly?
- Our mailers and garment bags are both 100% compostable. This means they will break down into nothing, as if they were never there. They are made from 70-80% PBAT (a co-polymer that is completely compostable) and 20-30% PLA (which is a fancy way of saying cornstarch).
- To compost mailers at home, remove any labels, cut them up and place in your compost bin as “brown” materials. These will completely break down within 90 days in a commercial compostable environment, and up to 120 days at home.
- Our garment bags have a shelf life of 10 months, only when the bags are exposed to the elements, light, heat and moisture. If not, they will not start to degrade for at least a year.
- Mailer certifications: Australia: Home Compostable (AS5810) and Commercially Compostable (AS4736). International: Home Compostable (EN13432) and Commercially Compostable (EN13432)
- Garment bag certification: Home Compostable (AS5810)

Why does my package look ripped open?
- Sometimes our packages for International orders going to/or via the U.S undergo a random check at the post office. Even though we wrapped your parcel very cutely, these checks are part of their policy. The parcel will be torn open/ cut open by the post office and might be resealed in their own shipping supplies and tape.
- As a new company, we will constantly be revising all our processes and shipping providers, until we have come to our best option.
