How Do I Dispose Of The Packaging Materials?

Great question! Our goal when choosing our packaging materials is to always maximize the convergence of being environmentally friendly, having an efficient combination of materials, and cost effectiveness.

Our gel packs can be reused (you can even store them defrosted in your pantry and freeze when you need to use them!) or donated to local YMCA's, food banks, churches, etc.

The gel is a mixture of 2% sodium polyacrylate (salt) and water. To recycle, cut open the pack and dump the gel into the trash. Rinse the plastic and sort with other #4 recyclables according to your local and state guidelines.

Our liners are made of natural fiber liner pads and poly film on the outside. 

POLY FILM

After separating the poly film from the natural fiber pads, the poly film can be recycled with the rest of your #4 plastic bags.

NATURAL FIBER LINERS

Our natural fiber pads are fully recyclable. Remove them from the poly film and recycle where #60 cotton is accepted.

Some widely-known companies that accept textiles in this form are H&MThe North Face, and Columbia. Drop off the liners at participating stores.

Our boxes can be curbside recycled.

If your delivery still has dry ice in it, please place it in a well-ventilated area at room temperature; the remainder of the ice will sublimate away. Never dispose of dry ice in a trash can, chemical waste container or other garbage/waste can.

Our individual meal trays are also curbside recyclable in most areas. Please be sure to remove the film and wash all the food off of the tray first.
