We all know him, the great magician Houdini, or maybe you know that one friend that always disappeared at parties without saying goodbye (before Corona of course)
They are "both" known for a magic trick that evolves around an object that disappears in thin air. Houdini performed this trick in 1918 when he vanished a 10.000-pound elephant into thin air. Marvellous right?
But what does this have to do with our mailers?
Good questions, actually not so much. It allows us to use the phrase, let's talk about the elephant in the room, and we can speak of vanishing into thin air.
But that's for later, let's talk about that elephant that we want to address. It revolves around the use of plastics and how we, as Tacky Towels, reduce the use of plastic as much as we can.
So let us start with the biggest plastic issue. It takes 500 (or more) years for a plastic bag to degrade in a landfill. More importantly, the bags don't break down completely but instead photo-degrade, becoming microplastics that absorb toxins and pollute the environment - creating, as we know, significant problems for our Planet.
With this in mind, we started to see what options there were for us to send our Tacky Towels. But after researching it for ages, we found the perfect mailer that fits our sustainable mindset. A mailer that perfected the magic trick to vanish in thin air. (Ah, the second reference, nice...)
The mailer is based on corn and will 100% compostable and biodegradable in about 6 months. We know it sounds almost like magic, but it is not! It is just fantastic.
Does this mean you can put it in the ground or compost bin? Yes, if you want, but you can also throw it away in the regular bin. Because in time, it will dissolve and leave without a trace. Isn't that great? We think it is! Important for that magic trick to happen, is to remove all the stickers and stamps...we know!! There is still some improving to do.
