In an ideal world, packaging would be a thing of the past, but until that time comes, read on for a simple how-to guide to recycle and reuse our delivery materials.
The meal containers (plastic #5) can be recycled with rigid plastic products, just make sure to rinse them first. The cardboard meal sleeve, the corrugated delivery box, and any other paper products can be recycled curbside too, but be sure to remove the plastic label and adhesive tape.
For the denim insulation, you can remove the plastic cover and recycle it. Unlike rigid plastics, these typically can’t go in your curbside bins, but you can find a nearby drop-off location here. The denim insulation inside the plastic can go straight in the garbage. No worries though! It's 85% biodegradable. Alternatively, embrace your inner DIYer and upcycle the denim for home projects, cushioning for shipping or moving (in place of bubble wrap), or as a quilted blanket filler. The denim insulation is also perfect for pet beds. 🐶
For the gel packs, dispose of the non-toxic contents in the garbage and recycle the plastic bag at a local store drop-off, just like our insulation covers. Keep in mind, we don't recommend pouring the water-based gel down the drain in case of temporary clogs. Reusing is an option, too! ✌ The gel packs are great for camping, road trips, or even groceries on a hot summer day—just be sure to freeze them upon arrival.
