Out-of-The-Box Ideas For Recycling Your HelloFresh Packaging April 20, 2018

by Lifestyle

Earth Day is this Sunday, and we’re celebrating in a BIG way here at HelloFresh with out-of-the-box recycling projects to inspire you to put that packaging to good use.

Get this: according to the EPA, food isn’t the only component of municipal solid waste in the United States (although it is important, which is why we addressed the issue of food waste here). Organic materials such as paper and paperboard are big ones, too.

But with a touch of creativity, you can repurpose different elements of your HelloFresh box in creative ways and keep dinnertime as green as your greens.

In honor of Earth Day, we also wanted to share some important HelloFresh stats and milestones with you as we journey towards fully curbside recyclable packaging:

  • Our summer cotton liner is made from 85% recycled materials, and the poly bag is 100% curbside recyclable.
  • Our cascade honeycomb liner is made from 100% recycled paperboard, and the pop-box is made from 100% paper certified for its curbside recyclability.
  • Our kit bags are 100% recyclable and have allowed us to reduce the box size by an average of 20% (compared to the size of the box with kit boxes rather than bags).

I am curious as to whether I can use the filling of the frozen bag in with some of my planters to help keep the soil moist and reduce the amount of times I need to water my plants.
