Those mailers typically have a 'pull here tab' that isolates the paper-only area, and doesn't release any recycled paper stuff.

I couldn't find one on the one I got. It looked cheaper than a cheap bubble mailer. Piece of shirt.

Damn them for using recyclable material rather than plastic!

Received an order that seemed to be broken prior to even shipping. Placed in decent box but with minimal packing but box looked fine. This is one I felt bad exchanging since it was a 3D printed item by an individual that I could have possibly repaired. I'm hoping the second attempt arrived intact.

That's beside the point. It's perfectly possible to design a mailer with recyclable material that doesn't make a mess when you open it. I got one of these mailers the other day as well and there was no tab isolating the paper-only part. They need to use better-designed recyclable mailers.

Re: The complaining about Amazon thread

After several complaints to Amazon and some refunds on their part, I've noticed more packages are starting to arrive packaged better. I wonder if it's just a fluke or maybe some kind of flag has been put on my account so handlers to alert order pickers and packers to take a little extra care (I sort of doubt that's the case, but maybe).

And sometimes, with those "gray fuzz" envelopes, they put the address label over the pull tab.
