Looked around for environmentally friendly alternatives to plastic mailers, and the best option seemed to be compostable. Unfortunately as a small new business, the short shelf life was a bit of a concern especially for the higher cost. A different alternative was to use carboard boxes, but it was less flexible than a satchel and would require filling (added waste!) to prevent movement which was not ideal for our clothing. This is where I came to finding these mailers! Although still plastic, they are completely recycled and therefore make it positive choice for trying to be environmentally friendly as a small business. An added bonus for some of the larger mailers was that they had multiple seals. This allowed the satchels to be used again (even the one that they were sent in!). Prices were very reasonable, colours were great - they fit our brand well (The Olive Nectar); they are super strong; and BPco are very efficient in processing and sending out the order (received them super quick!), which is also positive for a small business trying to maintain lower levels of stock. They also had a proper sample pack! It actually included everything you needed to make a decision about the other products at a reasonable price (which is even offset by the discount that you get afterwards) - a great method in ensuring that people aren't taking advantage of the sample, whilst not penalising people who are actually interesting in the products. Keep up the great work, and we look forward to continue the use of these products!
