What Is The Shelf Life Of An EarthMail Pack?
Yes, as our compostable mailers are made from annually renewable ingredients, they have a shelf life of approximately 12 months when kept in cool and dry conditions, out of direct sunlight. For this reason we recommend ordering for a 6 month period of shipments when purchasing mailers. We are also working on many mailer design improvements which will see this life expectancy increase in the future.
