Sometimes you just fall in love with a real dirtbag. That’s definitely the case with our biodegradable, compostable mailing bags. Yes, it's quite the dirtbag, but this one actually deserves your love.

Our dirtbags are made from PBAT + PLA material, which is a truly biodegradable and compostable material. It naturally composts in soil within 90 days when properly disposed. Safely, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly. But don’t take our word for it – it has passed the certificate of EN13432/ASTM D6400/OK-Compost Home/BPI/SGS.

Mailing bag composting process

PS: Even though our dirtbags can literally turn into dirt, we still urge you to put them in the recycling bin rather than nature as they still take time to fully compost!

Oceanness compostable and biodegradable mailing bag

Our mailing bags are compostable and not oxo-biodegradable – this is why you should know the difference

❌ Oxo-biodegradable refers to a material that is made from plastic that, over time, will break down into smaller pieces of plastic but never fully degrade. This is NOT what our mailing bags are made of, and we urge you to stay clear of such products.

✅ Compostable materials on the other hand are made from plant-based materials and will completely biodegrade in a short period of time in a commercial composting operation. That’s our mailing bags and that’s how we like it.
