Waste Reduction - Packaging Recycle and Re-use Program

by Bartley Creasman |

If you've ever ordered 80Fresh or one of the many meal kits out there, one of the realities is that it takes A LOT of packaging material to ensure that meals arrive safely and maintain the appropriate temperature throughout their journey (as you can see below). An unfortunate side effect is the amount of waste produced by this process. We don't want to add to this problem any more than we have to. 

That's why we're instituting a packaging re-use program. The liners, ice packs, and instruction cards are all safe to re-use more than once. If you are a subscriber to our service, or if you order regularly, we are offering you the chance to significantly reduce the amount of waste from the whole meal kit delivery process by sending us back the packaging materials. We make this process as easy as possible by emailing you a shipping label that you can stick to one of our boxes we send you. You can then schedule a pickup from your own home or drop it off at any FedEx, and you're done! 

If you have any questions about this program or would like to send us some of your waste products from our deliveries, please email contact@80fresh.com for more information.
