MAILBAGS MADE FROM MIELIES
And, our eco-awareness does not simply stop at our products. We only use biodegradable packaging and mailing bags!
We use Mielie Mailer shipping bags to courier our products. These bags are made from PLA which is derived from spoiled mielies (unfit for human consumption), PBAT and cornstarch, and are internationally certified as home compostable. They also happen to be carbon neutral. 🌳
Using Mielie Mailers contributes to tree planting initiatives and projects in Africa. 🌍🚚
Mielie Mailers plant trees to offset the carbon emissions (pollution from vehicles. Why trees? They're considered to be the best way to mitigate climate change. They also provide a host of other benefits to surrounding communities and wildlife.
Not only are we helping to keep plastic out the ocean but we also use proceeds from our I Am Water and Angel Fish products and to give towards I AM WATER Ocean Conservation.
I AM WATER Ocean Conservation was founded in 2010 by passionate ocean lovers who acknowledge that mankind and nature cannot survive without each other. They believe ocean degradation is fundamentally due to human disconnect, and the way to change the course for our oceans is engaging and educating individuals on their role for a healthy planet.
Our blue planet may be divided by continents, but it is united by oceans. For the more than seven billion people on our rapidly growing planet, solving the challenges to our shared, sustainable future relies on the knowledge of individuals along with the conservation of resources. They provide global opportunities to engage and educate ocean-users with the world beneath the waves and to understand their personal opportunity to protect the planet.
