Sustainable packaging is a popular topic these days, and with good reason. As businesses, we’re shipping more products and customer orders than ever. And as people, we’re more aware of how we’re affecting our planet than ever. And since the former affects the latter, it makes sense to try and find a way to rectify the two.

The eco-friendly packaging movement has led to the creation of some interesting packaging products. Chief among them—to us, anyway—are paper-based eco-friendly mailers. They use responsibly-sourced or easily recycled materials and save on both packaging and shipping costs. Plus, they don’t sacrifice looks or shipping protection, making them a great addition to your packaging.

Here’s 3 styles of paper-based eco-friendly mailers that we think you’ve got to try.
