Eco mailing bags
Our white sugar cane envelopes are the perfect sustainable alternative to standard polythene mailing bags, offering you the opportunity to improve your green credentials and reduce your carbon footprint. Produced from a by-product of sugar cane, and grown on reclaimed wasteland and therefore having no impact on the rainforest, our eco mailing bags are fully recyclable, use no fossil fuels and are produced from the greenest material on the market. One of the great benefits of our environmentally friendly mailing bags, beside them being extremely sustainable, is that you do not have to sacrifice quality. Containing all of the same properties as standard oil derived polythene means there is no change to the performance and feel.
Using sugar cane rather than oil in the process of photosynthesis makes it ‘GREEN’ by its very nature and due to it being 100% recyclable material it can be fed back into the recycling stream. Alternatives such as OXY or Biodegradable alternatives cannot be recycled and simply just degrade into small pieces which eventually could lead to them becoming banned in Europe within coming years.
Whether you are looking to make your business more environmentally friendly or if you have customers requesting to receive stock in an alternative sustainable package, then these bags are the ideal solution. Our eco-friendly poly mailers are used by a wide range of businesses shipping items such as clothing, beauty, literature, cleaning products and so on. Each bag has a strong peel-&-seal strip for easy and secure closure, please note the Kite logo and product details disappear behind this strip when sealed. Made from 50 micron/100 gsm material. Every size adheres to Royal Mail PiP guidelines, meaning you can estimate and keep postage costs to a minimum. See table for more info.

The perfect sustainable alternative to our standard mailers. Produced from 75% renewable resources and 100% recyclable in the same channels as oil-based polythene, it consists of all the same properties as our oil derived standard mailers but with added green credentials, therefore ensuring that you do not compromise on quality but can however reduce your carbon footprint.
What is sugar cane?
Sugar cane is a bio-based material that belongs to the grass family and is a naturally grown raw material. Along with a range of other benefits such as capturing CO2 from the atmosphere, sugar canes properties enable it to produce ethanol via a fermentation process, which involves crushing the stalks to extract sugar-rich cane juice beforehand. Therefore, fossil fuel-based polythene is not required, which will prevent emissions from going into the environment.
Why use sugar cane?
Using sugar cane rather than oil has many benefits. As it grows, sugar cane absorbs carbon gas from the air therefore taking it out of the atmosphere rather than emitting it, and due to it being 100% recyclable, it can be fed back into the recycling stream. There are alternatives such as OXY or Biodegradable that cannot be recycled and simply just degrade into small pieces which eventually could lead to them becoming banned in Europe within the coming years. Sugar cane discourages the use of fossil fuels and is grown on reclaimed land, therefore having no impact on the rainforest.
How do I recycle it?
Recycle as you would any other recyclable product. It can then be put back into the recycling process and re-used.
Whether you are looking to make your business more environmentally friendly or if you have customers requesting to receive stock in an alternative sustainable package, this is the ideal solution.
