Earth-saving, compostable, zero-waste packaging products that are also kinda cute. HEROPACKs are the way we send you your cool stuff! They're not made out of plastic like other mailing bags, but they're still really strong!

Our Packaging

The next time you order something online from Birds on Bikes, you will receive your garment in one of these packages!

Fondly known as HEROPACKs (shipping bags) they are not made out of plastic like regular mailers. These ones are more environmentally friendly because they're made out of plant-based materials like corn starch and some other things that make them really strong.

How Do I Use Them?

1. When you get your package in the mail, cut along the line on the flap and use it again with the second adhesive (glue) strip.

You're lucky because HERO mailers are one of the only ones in the world that have a reusable strip!

2. Once you are done with your mailer, you need to make sure that you throw it away properly. If you don't want your mailer anymore, you should cut it up into little pieces and put them in your compost bin.

* You cannot throw your mailers into the recycling bin because they are not made of paper like other recyclables!

3. If you want to recycle your mailer but don't have a place for them, there are two ways to do this. You can either make your own compost pile in your backyard or find someone nearby that already has one!

The website Share Waste helps people find other people with compost bins in their area so that their food scraps don't go into the landfill. This is a website where people without compost bins can get help finding people with them in their area so that their food scraps won't end up in the landfill. Sometimes councils even give out special green bins for food scraps!

4. The HEROPACKswill break down and become really yummy food for plants in your garden! The best part is that this process only takes 3-4 months.

5. If it ends up in landfill, don't worry! It will eventually break down into nothing.
