Hero Packaging started this petition to Australia Post

Under new rules from Australia Post, which came into effect on the 1st of November 2021, any packaging which is not their plastic pre-paid Aus Post packaging, incurs higher postage costs. This applies to any My Post Business customers who use their own packaging. 

The same product placed into an Australia Post satchel has a different postage cost than being put inside their own satchel.

Australia Post is now penalising small business owners who want to use their own packaging. Why does the cost of postage differ just because the packaging is different?

So many businesses now want to use eco-friendly packaging, such as Hero Packaging, but are forced to use single use plastic (sold by Aus Post) because it is much cheaper to ship their items. 

Australia Post is not giving its customers a choice between plastic and compostable packaging. If businesses want the best shipping rates, they are forced to choose plastic. 

This is an unfair practice and can’t be justified. It is terrible for the environment and terrible for small business owners. 

Something needs to change.
