Mama Rentals was created with the aim of reducing fashion waste. From the very beginning, we were mindful about reducing plastic waste from our use of plastic mail satchels during shipping, we recycled every single used satchel with Coles' Redcycle program for soft plastics but we know that is certainly not a long term solution.
Since July 2019, we started to use 100% home compostable mailing satchesl and shipping labels from BetterPackagingCo who offers innovative alternatives to plastic packaging. Their compostable postal satchels can be composted at home and break down within 6 months. Not only they are better for the environment, they also smell delicious!
We have also switched to compostable packing tapes since 2020, thus removing all plastic from our packaging completely.
We are serious about working towards a zero waste business, so even if that means paying a little extra for shipping and packaging, it is worth it and we are not passing this cost onto our customers.
So when you hire your dress from Mama Rentals, you can take comfort and pride in that you are leaving the gentlest footprint on our planet, as well as reducing fashion waste, one dress at a time.

What could you do to help?
Simply remember to not throw away the used mail satchel and send them back along with your rental, so we can make sure they will be reused and composted properly at the end of their life cycle.
Thank you for choosing us and helping us make our business as zero waste as possible.
