Our outer food boxes are made from corrugated board, which is one of the most environmentally friendly packaging materials available. All waste created during the process of manufacturing the outer boxes is collected into an extraction and baler system. This produces bales of corrugated board which is then collected and processed to be made into corrugated board again.
Not only do they contain a minimum of 80% recycled material, but our outer cardboard boxes are also 100% recyclable too. Simply flatten and place into your household recycling.
Our Flexi-hex packaging is made from over 85% recycled material, is 100% plastic-free, composts in six weeks, and can be placed in your household cardboard recycling. The PVA adhesive glue used to construct the Flexi-hex boxes is non-toxic, and under the right conditions, will biodegrade within six weeks of disposal.
Flexi-hex also carbon offset their emissions by working closely with the Mossy Earth Company too!
Woolcool Fleece Lining:
To keep your food boxes nice and chilled on their journey from us to you, we insulate them with Woolcool lining – made from 100% sheep’s wool which is washed in a natural process and sealed in a recyclable polyethylene wrap.
When separated from the inner wool lining, the polyethylene wrap can be recycled for use in plastics manufacturing by replacing oil, which is a key contributor to air pollution. The wool lining, as well as being one of the most sustainable and abundant natural materials, is also completely biodegradable and compostable! It can be recycled around the home too – head to Woolcool’s #LetsBoxClever page for inspiration. You can also return your Woolcool for free for them to clean, reprocess and make into new Woolcool to be used again. To return for FREE follow these instructions.
