We strive for circular recycling where plastics are used again and again. We're constantly making strides towards reducing our overall environmental footprint, and use fit for purpose packaging so we don't use more plastic than we really need to.
The launch of our Soft Plastics Recycling programme also now offers a super simple way for all of our foodies to participate in soft plastic recycling, no matter where in New Zealand they are located! Soft plastic recycling courier bags can be added as a one-off extra to any of our subscriptions and are shipped out separately to orders. These can then be gradually filled over time and can fit approximately 2 months worth of household soft plastic waste! Once the bag is full, just head online to the NZ Post website to schedule a pick up, or drop the bag off at your nearest post office. All soft plastics returned through our Soft Plastic Recycling programme are upcycled to create long-life fence posts and garden beds by our friends at FuturePost. How epic is that!
We're very close to becoming a 'zero food waste business' and that's something we're super proud of. Our menus are planned to give you perfect portions, and the produce that doesn't make its way into your Food Bag or Bargain Box is returned and on-sold. Any bags we don't use are given to families in need, and at the end of the day when our recipe testing is complete, we pack it up and give it to the good folks at Kiwi Harvest.
