About the industry

Designers, brands, suppliers, and consumers across the fashion industry are becoming increasingly aware of the need to reduce their carbon footprint. To put it into context, packaging takes up almost a third of all plastic production, but only 14% would ever be recycled. 

With the world turning to sustainability, consumers are choosing only ethical and sustainable fashion brands. And it’s no surprise, as the fashion industry is in the top 10 for worst polluting industries. In 2019, a study showed 60% of all materials used in fashion are made from plastic, and the equivalent of one garbage truck full of clothes is burned or dumped in landfill every second!

It’s no wonder consumers are turning towards eco-conscious brands with the impact they are having on our planet. But, it’s important your brand keeps up with the race to become more sustainable so to stay ahead of the competition.

Below is some of our most popular products in the fashion industry.

Paper Mailer Bags

The mailer bag, often referred to as a shipping envelop are perfect solutions for shipping clothing and apparel to customers. With bottom/side gussets, the bags expand, giving more room and less hassle when packing your clothing. The self-sealing strips make the packing process more efficient. Paper mailers are cost effective, efficient, and sustainable. Being lightweight and flatter than a box, the paper mailer costs less to send with UK couriers.

With several sizes, styles, and shapes available, the mailer box is great for shipping multiple items.
