Ecobags

At GoSweetSpot, we offer both compostable and recycled plastic bags to suit your shipping needs while also considering their impact on our environment. Each type has their own unique strengths and attributes that will determine which one you would prefer for your parcels. With both materials, we have tried to balance environmental impact with durability so regardless of which option you choose, the environmental impact is lower than alternative products.

If you are an existing customer with us, you can go to the Supplies tab on the dashboard to buy various courier-related items. If you haven’t signed up with us, don’t worry! You can purchase our compostable and plastic bags (plus many more handy supplies!) please visit couriersupplies.co.nz.

What are each of these bags made out of?

Recycled Bag
Recycled Plastic Bags

These bags are made through processing NZ manufacturing waste and recycled resin from third-party processors. Alongside the resin processors, our supplier sources post-consumer recycled LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene). These recycled contents make up at minimum, 80% of the bag’s material.  

Ecobags
Compostable bags 

Our compostable bags are derived from biopolymers and co-polymer; PBAT (polybutylene adipate terephthalate), Corn-starch and PLA (polylactic acid). Our compostable bags do not contain any conventional plastic whatsoever. With our high quality resourced materials, our bags decompose in compost faster than other compostable products on the market.

Bubble wrap Padded Bags

The bubbled inner layer on our plastic bubble bags are made of a minimum of 20% recycled material. The bubble wrap surrounding the bag’s interior will help to prevent damage during transit. The bag’s outer material is made of a minimum of 80% recycled plastic.

Honeycomb Padded Paper Bags

Our honeycomb-padded paper bags offer both versatility and sustainability. The honeycomb inner padding provides exceptional cushioning and protection for your valuable contents. Additionally, they are made from 100% eco-friendly materials, with the outer shell constructed from recycled kraft paper that is FSC-certified and the inner padding composed of recycled paper honeycomb for added durability. 

What should I do with the bags once they’ve been used?

Recycled Plastic Bags

Cut off the end where the glue is based and recycle the bags in soft plastic recycling stations. Soft plastic recycling stations are different to our normal everyday recycling bins. They would need to be taken to a special soft plastic recycling station. Please click on this link to find out more about where soft plastic recycling stations are located https://www.recycling.kiwi.nz/store-locator

Compostable bags 

Remove or cut off any added glue (labels/stickers) still attached and place the bag itself into your compost bin. If you do not have a home compost, you can send them to your nearest commercial composting facility. To find a composting facility, please follow this link https://www.wasteminz.org.nz/nz-facilities-that-accept-compostable-packaging. There are also helpful apps you can use to share another person’s compost, such as Sharewaste.
