RECYCLABLE MAILERS FOR E-COMMERCE PACKAGING
As retail e-commerce sales continue to grow year after year, we all feel the impact of non-recyclable packaging that adds to our landfills and waste stream.
The focus on reducing packaging, optimizing dim weight, and using more sustainable packaging is now more critical than ever.
Brands and retailers looking to reduce and optimize packaging are moving from corrugated boxes to mailers. And we can help you make an even bigger impact by offering fully curbside recyclable mailers.
Our offering includes recyclable padded mailers ideal for fragile products including fragile glass containers, gel capsules, cosmetics, and liquids. We also offer recyclable and compostable paper envelopes ideal for soft products such as apparel & textiles.
What We Offer
Fully Curbside Recyclable Mailers
Our eco-friendly padded mailers are the ideal solution for replacing bubble wrap mailers and moving closer to your sustainability goals in e-commerce packaging.
These mailers are certified recyclable and proudly display the How2Recycle® label.
This status is achieved through construction that separates the natural kraft paper from the padded material. During the recycling process, cushioning pieces become separated from the paper fibers.
Our padded mailers have passed ISTA 6 testing protocols for performance in protecting your products. Items tested included glass containers, gel capsules, cosmetics, and liquids. The performance of our padded mailers is due to design improvements with high seam strength, higher impact resistance, reduced tearing, improved burst strength, and an improved strength-to-weight ratio.
In addition, we’re excited about design enhancements that make these padded mailers easier and faster to open and to pack.
CURBSIDE RECYCLABLE & COMPOSTABLE
Our paper mailer offering is made from a durable natural kraft multi-wall grade paper and is both curbside recyclable and compostable. It is designed specifically as a sustainable replacement for flat poly mailers.
A special weather proofing varnish is available to provide additional protection from the outdoor elements.
This paper mailer is available with single or dual closure options, embedded thread allowing for easy opening, wicket options for packing efficiencies, and custom printing in up to 8 colors to help showcase your brand and your marketing message.
PAPER OR PLASTIC?
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “more than 14 million tons of non-recyclable plastic containers and packaging were generated in 2017.” And that number has grown steadily since then, particularly with the growth of e-commerce sales.
Consumers are demanding an eco-friendly solution.
We’ve sourced a collection of environmentally-friendly padded mailers and paper envelopes are fully curbside recyclable. These are ideal for replacing bubble mailers if you’re looking for the eco-friendly choice. The padded Eco Mailer™ helps facilitate your move away from corrugate and extra dunnage, reducing your packaging and replacing it with a sustainable product while the paper mailer is an ideal replacement for anything currently shipping in a flat poly mailer.
The padded mailers are certified recyclable with the HowToRecycle® label. The paper envelopes are recyclable and compostable and have proven to be weather resistant and durable.
STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD
Custom printing options help your recyclable e-commerce mailer showcase your brand and convey any marketing messaging you want to display to your consumer.
You can print up to 2 colors with our padded mailer and up to 8 colors on our paper mailers.
Stand out from the crowd with custom printed and branded mailers that are fully curbside recyclable.
SUSTAINABILITY HAS TO BE SUSTAINABLE
At Atlantic, we understand that for a company or brand to truly become more sustainable, their sustainability goals have to be … well, sustainable. You have to be able to maintain the changes you make as you try to reach your goals. If it doesn’t make business-sense to maintain these changes, then it’s not going to work.
The eco-mailers we offer are more affordable than competing products and are an ideal solution for going green in your e-commerce fulfillment packaging options.
LIGHTWEIGHT & DURABLE
REDUCED SOURCE PACKAGING
When it comes to e-commerce fulfillment, you’re looking for the optimal way to ship your products so that they are fully protected in the least amount of packaging and with the lowest dim weight. Moving from a corrugated box to mailers is a big first step in source reduction and moving towards a more sustainable package.
Using our sustainable mailers is an incredible move towards your sustainability goals. And using an eco-mailer as lightweight as this one further optimizes your total packaging and material and cost impact.
In addition to being lightweight, our sustainable mailers are also designed for easy opening, easy packing, and flexibility.
FLEXIBLE & DURABLE
Another change that happens when you move from a corrugated box to a mailer is that you replace a relatively rigid product with one that is flexible and lightweight. So you also need to ensure that your mailers are durable enough to maintain optimal product protection.
Durability comes in the form of weather resistance and also in tear and puncture resistance, impact resistance, burst strength, and seam strength. Our mailers are made with durable materials and construction and have been proven to maintain product protection.
“If you move from a corrugated box to a fully curbside recyclable mailer, you’re combining a sustainable action with a sustainable product. That’s a win for your company, for your customer, and for the environment.”
