Upgraded Sustainable Shipping
ICYMI... a couple of years ago, China banned the import of many plastics and mixed papers destined for the country’s recycling centers, which have handled nearly half of the world’s waste for well over two decades.
The point? People keep throwing things in the recycling bin, but the majority of these items are ending up back in the waste stream since there’s nowhere to process them.
This problem is reaching critical levels as “recyclable” trash piles up in local facilities.
We’re stepping up our game to do something about it.
We launched The Good Kitchen to make it easier for people to eat food that is good for them and good for the planet. Food is the “main dish” in this equation, but it’s not the only thing that keeps our meal-deliveries mission aligned:
The delivery part is key.
We’re constantly evaluating our materials and processes to find fresh ways to reduce our environmental impact (no joke), and we just made a big breakthrough toward our minimal-waste mission!
You might notice something a little different about the look of your last delivery:
Green Cell Foam is a new and more environmentally sustainable way to package and ship products safely and consciously. The compostable material is made from corn grown in the US and goes beyond simple recycling.
Green Cell Foam is certified compostable both at home and in industrial settings. It can even be dissolved in a sink by just adding water for 60 seconds; washing it down the drain so you can throw it out and know that it will go back into the earth, safely. In addition, you can safely burn it, compost it, or plant it; so not only is it good for the planet, it’s useful for your household. And at no expense to your package’s safety because the material used combines next-level cushioning and thermal insulating protection to keep hot stuff hot and cold stuff cold, all while protecting the planet.
