How does our recycling process work at HelloFresh?
HelloFresh is committed to preserving this earth, which produces the fresh ingredients in your boxes! We source seasonal and natural food from local suppliers whenever possible. By sending the exact amount of every ingredient in our recipes, we cut household food waste by more than 60%. From our ethically raised meat to our farm-fresh produce, HelloFresh strives to incorporate earth-friendly and green initiatives into our business practices.
1. Gel Ice Packs – Reuse these non-toxic ice packs for a picnic or camping. To dispose of the gel ice, simply open the pouch, discard the gel, and discard the empty pouch worry free.
2. Insulation – Our boxes are insulated with PLA plastic fibre, which is a pretty amazing material. Our insulation fibre is derived from 100% plant material, and all of our insulation and the lining it comes in is 100% biodegradable. We love that, because it means it will never sit in landfill.
The fibre is also breathable and keeps things cold or hot, so it's great to store cold drinks on a road trip or keep a casserole hot on your way to a pot luck dinner.
3. HelloFresh boxes – Our boxes are made from all biodegradable and recyclable materials. So, just fold and discard the cardboard with other household recyclables.
