We are working to reduce the amount of packaging we use overall, while still focusing on food safety. In the meantime, many of our packaging items are recyclable or reusable:
The outer shipping box, food bags, cups, and bottles can all go into your recycling bin.
The foam insulation / liner is non-toxic, made of 100% sustainable materials, and is reusable. It can also be recycled if taken to a polyurethane recycling depot.
You can find a local depot by searching for “foam padding” with your zip code here: search.earth911.com
The gel packs are 100% non-toxic and are made of the same product used in baby diapers. They can be disposed of in the trash or in your sink while running hot water (not all at once). The outer plastic can then be recycled in your recycling bin.
