SR Mailing 100% recycled mail bags are certified under the Global Recycled Standard (GRS).
The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is a voluntary product standard for tracking and verifying the content of recycled materials in a final product. The standard applies to the full supply chain and addresses traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, chemical content and labeling. The GRS covers processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading and distribution of all products made with a minimum of 20% recycled material. It also sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices, and chemical restrictions. The standard supports companies looking to verify the recycled content of their products as well as responsible social, environmental and chemical practices in the production of these products.
Our recycled materials comes from film formerly used for agricultural activities. This plastic waste was and still is used to produce our 100% recycled mailing bags, guaranteeing the highest quality materials and ensuring single use plastic is put back into the recycling loop.
Our range of mail bags includes 100% recycled Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE), which are recyclable when the glue strip has been removed. We recommend businesses note this on their packing note, so that customers can be confident how best to dispose of their mail bag.They are available in a range of sizes, and are suitable for sending all kinds of items through the post. They’re a lightweight option that allows you to keep shipping costs to a minimum, and the seal and strength of the recycled plastic means that items will be kept completely free of moisture, water, and dust. Despite their lightweight nature, they’re incredibly durable, as well as being puncture and tear resistant – so they are suitable for sending internationally, as well as within the UK.
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, 95% of our products are earth-friendly. We offset 570,380kg of carbon emissions via the Wind energy project in Northeast Brazil. ID: 15019-2103-1001
Our Final Thoughts
Sustainable, 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 make a change!
There are a number of packaging options for getting customer orders to them safely and in one piece. Cardboard PiP boxes, envelopes and crash lock boxes can be an option, but if you’re sending items such as textiles that don’t need quite the same amount of protection, they can add extra costs to each order. For items such as clothing and bedding, polythene mail bags can be the most cost-effective packaging solution.
As you would expect, our range of polythene and paper bags is as environmentally responsible as we can make it, so you can feel good about the packaging materials you choose to buy from us. Our mail bags are made from 100% recycled LDPE that can be recycled again when the adhesive strip has been removed.
