Cardboard Boxes

What is it made of?

Our boxes are made from 47% recycled cardboard. The rest comes from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified pulp which means it is sourced from responsibly managed sources. The virgin pulp is made mostly from forestry offcuts. This provides a second life to offcuts which would have otherwise gone to waste.

What to do with it?

Our boxes are 100% kerbside recyclable. Pop them out for collection and help them continue to move through the cycle.

Wool Insulation

What is it made of?

Our wool pouches are made from New Zealand wool. The wool insulation inner is made from extra wool from shearing which is collected and recycled into this neat insulation to keep your food nice and cool.

What to do with it?

Once the plastic liner is removed, the wool is 100% biodegradable. The wool makes a great addition to any compost bin, worm farm or to a garden. The list goes on and you can find more ideas on our blog. The liner is made from soft-plastic and can be left at a soft-plastic recycling station.

Ice Packs

What is it made of?

We're super happy about the fact that our ice packs are filled with 100% New Zealand water and nothing else. The soft-plastic wrapping is made from non-leeching BPA free plastics.

What to do with it?

The ice packs can be drained down your sink or better yet, can be reused to water your plants or backyard veggie patch. Once drained the soft plastics can be collected together and dropped off at your nearest soft plastic recycling station.

Paper & Packets

What is it made of?

Our recipe cards are made from FSC certified pulp. As is the paper on our spice, rice and other such packages.

What to do with it?

Our recipe cards and any smaller cardboard boxes included in your order can go in your curbside recycling. Our paper packets are a bit more varied:

  • Nuts, Rice & Everything nice - these are coated and will break down at landfill, add to regular waste.

  • Spice Packets or lined plastics - any packets with clear plastic liners can be deposited in your soft-plastic recycling. During the reprocessing the paper breaks down leaving just the thin liner.

Plastic & Pottles

What is it made of?

There are a range of plastics utilised in our bags. We're always working on reducing these while maintaining the highest possible Health and Safety food standards.

While we work to reduce these, in the meantime:

  • Our plastic pottles are made from #5 plastic.
  • Our sauce sachets are made from soft-plastic.
  • Our herb packets are made from #1 plastic and a soft-plastic seal.
  • Our meat packaging varies depending on the meat, please refer to packaging.
  • Our MADE trays are made from 80% recycled plastic and are #1 kerbside recyclable.

What to do with it?

Refer to our New Zealand recycling guide or your local council's recycling guide to see what is kerbside recyclable. Our sauce pottles include measurement labels and can be reused as measuring cups too.

Veggie Scraps

What is it?

There's always a little something leftover from cooking, the little bits we trim off. Whether it's the skin of an onion, peel of a potato, base of a carrot or stem of a capsicum, they're all little at the time but build up in volume quickly over a week.

What to do with it?

The best option is always to compost leftover veggie scraps, however, if you're short a compost bin we have some tips to help over on our blog.
