Statement From the Founders of Hero Packaging, more info can be found at heropackaging.com.au
"We are Anaita and Vik, a superhuman team of elite composters. Well, part of that is true. In real speak, we are a husband and wife duo who are committed to removing plastic from packaging and shipping in Australia. We knew there had to be another way to package items without plastic, so we looked for an Australian eco-friendly shipping solution. And we looked. And we looked. And we looked. And we came up empty-handed.
So, we began our mission to create shipping mailers that fulfilled our requirements. We worked hard to find supply chain partners who not only use completely renewable materials, but also have environmentally ethical practices and processes.
We have learnt along the way that recycling is not enough. 90% of plastics and food scraps end up in landfill, and in that environment, they turn into methane which is a deadly enemy of our Planet. So, we decided to specialise in mailers that were 100% home compostable, but also made from such materials that if they ended up in landfill, they would still break down with no waste."
