We've taken it one step further. 

As many of you already know, we have been using 100% recycled materials mailer for all of our orders. While we were super proud of this, we are always looking for ways to improve and reduce our carbon impact.

The goal of Vegan Athletic is to empower plant-based athletes all over the world. Vegan Athletic is here for the community and to spread a valuable message. We strive to operate with as little strain on our environment as possible. 

For this reason, we are happy to announce we are changing our shipping bags to a fully compostable mailer that is made with plant materials and uses soy ink. These mailers can be placed in your home compost or in any commercial compost and be broken down within 90 days. 

These compostable mailers are made from a combination of PBAT, a bio-based polymer that is compostable, and PLA which is made up of plant materials such as regular field corn and wheat straw. The use of PLA makes up barely 0.05% of the annual global corn crop, making it an incredibly low-impact resource. 

We hope you understand and appreciate the steps we are taking to protect our environment and preserve our planet. In a world where e-commerce is exploding, the amount of waste material being created during the fulfillment process is astronomical. Anytime you shop with us you are helping the planet. Please take the time to add these mailers to your compost and reduce waste.

We've made a conscious effort to use the least amount of materials to ship our products to our customers. We purposefully don't wrap each product in its own plastic bag, add swing tags or even wrap your products in tissue paper before sending them to you. We want to be as close to zero waste as possible.
