Here's a quick summary of our packaging.
Cardboard Boxes: The cardboard boxes we use are made from renewable fiber. Our vendor is certified to Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI) standards. As part of their commitment to SFI® standards, they support the health and growth of forests and promote sustainable forest management.
Insulated liner: Our insulated liners are made from renewable plant-based components and paper. This is 100% recyclable and compostable.
Meal Sleeve: Our meal sleeves are made with 100% Virgin Eucalyptus Fiber, which makes the Paperboard 100% recyclable. The Eucalyptus Fiber comes from Cartulinas owned Eucalyptus Forest in Central and South America.
Meal container: The base of our meal containers is made from bamboo and unbleached plant fiber, an annually renewable resource. While our lids are derived from plants grown in the USA. Both bases and lids are certified compostable in 2 to 4 months in a commercial composting facility.
Ice Packs: The gel in our ice packs are environmentally safe and non-toxic.
Here's the lowdown for what goes where.
What goes into your recycling bin? Cardboard box, insulated liner, meal sleeve, plastic from ice pack.
What goes into your waste bin? Meal containers of not composting, and gel from thawed ice pack. (This gel can also go down your drain once thawed!)
**The plastic from the thawed ice packs can be recycled with grocery bags once gel gets discarded
