Mail Lite® designed for recycling

At Sealed Air, we pledge to design and advance our innovative packaging solutions to be 100% recyclable or reusable by 2025. Our new mailers are just part of this journey.

Our new Mail Lite® mailers are now designed for recycling with two separate components both being recyclable. Using FSC® certified paper from responsible forestry, ensuring our co-extruded inner bubble is made with at least 60% recycled content, make our new mailers environmentally friendly.

What is the difference between the new and the old mailers?

  • We have replaced the PE coated paper with non-coated Kraft Paper. 
  • The AirCap® bubble liner is now welded around the top, sides and bottom of the bags opposed to a full lamination which prevents the bags from being recycled. 
  • The AirCap bubble contains a minimum of 60% recycled content

How to recycle the new Mail Lite® White and Gold?

The inner bubble can easily be separated from the outer paper for recycling, making our new mailers environmentally friendly without compromising performance.

Look at our video here below to see how to separate the paper from the bubble!




  • Non-PE-coated paper can easily be recycled in the paper waste stream
  • The AirCap® bubble contains a minimum of 60% recycled content.
  • The bubble can be easily separated from the paper and then be reused or recycled in the appropriate waste stream (degree of recyclability will vary depending on scope and availability of collection and recycling programs).
