Sustainable and Recyclable Packaging

As part of our commitment to the environment, we have moved to sustainable and recyclable packaging where possible.

Our compostable mailers are made from a combination of PBAT, a bio based polymer which is compostable, and PLA which is made up of plant materials such as regular field corn and wheat straw. Our use of PLA makes up barely 0.05% of the annual global corn crop, making it an incredibly low-impact resource.

Our bags are certified by the leading authorities worldwide; meeting American, European, International and Australian standards – including certifications for your domestic home compost. To gain these certifications, the product must break down within 90 days in commercial compost and 180 days in domestic compost conditions, including worm farm compost. After degradation, they must leave no harmful residues behind.

All of our packaging for international orders includes fully recyclable tissue paper.

Our personalised tissue is made from cellulose fibre where the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing. It is also lignin- and sulphur-free, meaning that our ink won’t transfer from the tissue and the paper won’t leave behind any of these chemicals when decomposing. As with our certified packaging from responsible sources, the tissue paper is FSC Certified. The FSC or Forest Stewardship Council certifies that the paper products that make up our printed tissue paper are sourced from a forest and supply chain that is managed responsibly and sustainably. FSC forest management standards are developed at an international level, and are then adapted to individual countries’ legal, social, and geographical settings, through national standards.

So when you choose Mountain Red, you are also choosing Green!
