We are really committed to minimising waste and the impact of our product on the environment. To this end, we aim to ensure all of our packaging is recyclable. Our cardboard boxes are made from recycled cardboard and are fully recyclable. We buy them from an Australian packaging company to minimise air-miles they travel to get to us. The paper wrapping and sticker inside are both also recyclable, and the Australia Post satchel can be returned to the post office for recycling.
For some boxes we also include insulation and padding. This is made from wool or cotton and can actually be composted. We collect this material from the fresh food deliveries of ourselves and our friends and recycle it into our customers boxes. When we need to use coldpacks they are packs that can be reused up to 50 times. We’re currently looking at ways to re-use some of our packaging (eg allowing customers to return their cardboard boxes and insulation for re-use). If you have any other ideas for how we could minimise our impact on the environment, please get in touch!
