The Ecojacket® curbside recyclable all-paper padded mailer does the same job as a poly bubble mailer with the added benefit of tossing it in the curbside recycling bin for easy, eco-friendly disposal. Maybe you are wondering if paper-based mailers are as protective, how curbside recyclable mailers compare to boxes, or how the Ecojacket differs from other sustainable shipping products. We have the answers to all of your questions below!  

Yes, paper-based mailers can offer the same padded protection as poly bubble mailers. 

In most instances, Ecojacket performs as well, or even better, than a typical poly bubble mailer. The Ecojacket passes the same rigorous standards that the world’s top e-commerce retailers use to evaluate packaging. It passes drop tests from various heights and angles in addition to puncture tests, proving it is a tough and sustainable mailer.  

The key to Ecojacket’s durability is its unique design. The mailer is made from natural kraft paper bonded to a fluted interior that acts as a cushion. The flutes inside are scored, which allows it to conform to its contents, keeping your product in place during transit.  

Paper-based mailers are a cost-effective alternative to a box — and provide great protection.  

For many products, boxes are not the best curbside recyclable shipping solution. Customers want as little packaging as possible that still protects their shipment. They hate receiving a bulky box with air pillows for a product that doesn’t require the extra packaging. Lightweight mailers are easier to transport, easier to store, less expensive to ship, and far less waste.  

In addition to its small footprint on the shelves, Ecojacket has a much smaller carbon footprint than a box during production and recycling. 

What makes Ecojacket different from other sustainable mailers? 

Ecojacket is designed to meet the highest standards of quality and has been tested rigorously for performance. The corrugated lining is consistent throughout, offering all-over protection. The mailer is constructed with a bottom fold and two heat-sealed sides, resulting in superior bursting strength compared to other paper mailers that are sealed on three sides. The pressure-sensitive closure system is reliable and tamper-evident. An integrated pull tab with a tear strip opens the mailer quickly without damaging its contents. 


Ecojacket mailers are available in popular e-commerce mailer stock sizes with plenty of area for custom printing. 

All Ecojackets have a 2.5” flap and a flute height of 3/32”. Flutes are compressed at the entry point to provide for comfortable and quick filling.  

These thoughtfully designed elements make the Ecojacket all-paper padded mailer a perfect choice for companies using a curbside recyclable mailer without compromising protection and quality.
