Sustainable Shipping Materials

Cardboard Boxes: Frozen products are shipped separately from nonperishable products, and both are packaged in corrugated cardboard boxes. Made of materials sourced from SFI®-certified suppliers in North America, our boxes contain 53% postconsumer waste and are widely recyclable by curbside and drop-off recycling programs. While most recyclable materials end up in the landfill and don’t get reused, 93% of corrugated cardboard is recycled and can be re-pulped into new paper products up to seven times. This makes cardboard the most reusable consumer-based material in the world.

Recycled Denim Insulation: When shipping frozen products, we insulate our packages with padded liners made of cotton fibers from recycled denim. Made in the USA of post-consumer blue jeans, our recycled denim insulation offers extraordinary thermal protection, conserves natural resources, saves energy, and diverts hundreds of tons of textile waste from landfills each year. And because authentic denim is made of natural cotton fiber, denim and denim insulation can safely be reused, repurposed, or recycled through our mail-in recycling program. The first food home-delivery brand to collaborate with Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ denim recycling program, we offer mail-in recycling for the denim padding in your box, along with any worn-out denim (90% cotton or greater) you want to include. We ask that you cover the cost of shipping, so use the shipping method that works best for you. Please remove the recyclable poly wrapper (4-LDPE) from the padding and reuse your shipping box to package your old denim and/or padding. Print this shipping label, attach it to the box, and send it by USPS, UPS, or FedEx.

EPS Foam Coolers: Live shellfish orders are packed in recyclable EPS foam coolers and shipped directly from our shellfish partners on Whidbey Island, WA. Although the availability of EPS recycling programs varies by community and can be limited, the EPS industry uses approximately 50 percent of post-consumer material in the manufacture of new EPS packaging, which reduces the need for raw materials and energy consumption and diverts material from landfills.
