Did you know, in 2016, 170 kg of packaging waste was generated per inhabitant in the EU? Packaging is a waste issue in almost every industry because its often unavoidable and poly bags are by far the most readily available and substantially cheaper than any eco-friendly alternative. In United States, 29.7 percent of the municipal solid waste is made up of packaging. That’s 77.9 million tons! There must be a better way!
Well, you’re in luck. Recently, A.C.F got word of a company trying to change all this. NoIssue is the first company to make ethical, premium, and 100% compostable mailer bags. The bags are made from corn and are completely plant-based. This means they’ll dissolve in six months time, which is a pretty big improvement from the 1000 year lifespan of a typical plastic bag.
Through making the switch to these compostable mailers, we have taken another crucial step to drastically lower the waste associated with our products. Enter the A.C.F world and help us, help the planet. Just a click of a button and you can receive one of these goodies in the mail. All you have to do is let us know what to fill it with. Go wild.
