Recycle Packaging

All of our orders are shipped in either a poly mailer bag, or a cardboard box. Both of which are recyclable!

Poly Mailers

Our poly mailers are made with 100% polyethylene material and are identified by recycling code 4, which can be seen in the corner of the bag.

RECYCLE THE RIGHT WAY

Our poly mailers can and should be recycled. However, poly mailers need special attention if they are to end up being re-used as intended.

Recycling code #4 is often not accepted at curbside recycling programs because most recycling centers aren’t equipped to recycle plastic bags with other recyclable materials.

Instead of tossing them in your curbside recycling bin, store your plastic mailers with other plastic grocery or retail bags.

WHERE TO RECYCLE POLY MAILERS

In the spirit of recycling and conserving the environment, many stores and retail centers are now acting as collection points for this type of recyclable plastic. Most grocery stores that offer to recycle grocery bags will also accept other types of plastic bags.

Some states, such as Idaho, also accept recyclable plastic bags at their waste transfer stations.

DON’T FORGET!

Make sure your shipping envelopes are dry and remember to remove any paper shipping labels prior to dropping off. Paper labels are detrimental to the Store Drop-off recycling process. You can help by peeling off any paper labels before taking your bag to the drop off location. If the labels don’t peel off easily, you can cut them off with scissors.
