Our box, brown bags and many of the ingredient packaging can all be recycled.
The cool bag is made out of PET - you will need to check with your local council whether it can be recycled in your area. Due to low demand, the HelloFresh PET collection serviced has been discontinued.
At HelloFresh we’re mindful of the sustainability of our packaging, and we always strive to use recycled materials or materials that can be recycled again in order to reduce our ecological footprint.
The Insulation we use to keep your food chilled is made out of recycled PET (the same material as plastic bottles and food trays), which is recycled again to reduce its impact on the environment.
Unfortunately, these items can only be recycled so many times before the quality is not good enough to create new trays and bottles. As our cooling insulation sits right at the end of the chain, the materials can’t be recycled back into a tray or bottle anymore, and therefore have to be disposed of in your General Household Waste. Please bear this in mind when discarding any materials.
We’re currently looking into ways will allow us to recycle the Insulation back into new materials, so please watch this space for any future updates.
[TIP: Double check with your local council on how to recycle in your area]
