New: Kraft Padded Paper Mailing Bags

Made from mixed recycled and virgin paper the kraft paper padded mailing bags are our most sustainable mailer yet.

Fully compostable, the kraft paper waffle padding provides extra strength for cushioning and protecting your products. The honeycomb structure of the padding not only cushions but also gives a protective spring back, ensuring maximum protection whilst eliminating the need for plastic packaging.

The outer paper is 110gsm kraft recycled paper, offering superior strength to regular paper mailers. The honeycomb padding is composed of 80gsm virgin kraft paper meaning that the bag is not only fully recyclable but also fully compostable. Kraft paper is distinguished by its superior strength compared to other paper alternatives. Using reduced lignin and a high sulphur ratio, the chemical processes behind creating kraft paper is also more sustainable, the pulp does not require extensive bleaching which is not only environmentally damaging but also decreases the integrity of the paper itself.

Additionally, the padded envelopes use a hotmelt adhesive for sealing. Hotmelt glue is a thermoplastic that is composed of a combination of polymers, waxes and resins which cure faster and release less volatile organic compounds (VOCs) than liquid, solvent based adhesives.
