This is SWOP - a super sustainable way of posting, that can be reused many times for delivering parcels

SWOP are among the first Australia / New Zealand companies to crack this market. From the Better Packaging Co, these bags are made from totally natural, renewable materials - FSC paper, organic cotton, soy-based inks and a plant-derived coating. 

The bags come in two versions; one with a velcro strip and one without. Testing has shown the velcro isn't required to seal these bags (folding and sealing with a label is sufficient), however if you are sending particularly heavy or precious items, you may want the added security provided by the velcro strip. 

SWOPs are particularly suited to:

  • Internal intra-company deliveries
  • Rental or subscription service models
  • Brands with a high rate of online returns
  • Brands with an offline presence wanting to increase foot traffic (when customer returns packaging in store) and in store purchasing

You may just want to offer this more sustainable option at checkout and reward customers when they send the SWOP back to you with e.g, a discount off their next purchase or a product return for recycling offer.
