Help us by recycling or upcycling your packaging!
|Bubble envelopes / Bubble wrap / Plastics|
These are 100% recyclable!
Most municipalities won’t accept them as part of curbside recycling. However, many grocery stores run plastic drop-off programs. You can find a comprehensive list of drop-off locations here.
But why can’t I just put them out with the rest of the recycling?
Lightweight plastics (like sandwich bags, plastic grocery bags, and our poly bubble mailers) tend to get tangled up in the automated sorting machines at recycling facilities.
These are 100% recyclable (even the paper tape used to seal them!)
Pop out the sides, flatten the box, and put it out with your paper recycling.
Our cold packs are filled with non-toxic water and salt gel designed to get colder than ice! Stick them back in the freezer for future picnics and lunches. Once you’re done reusing them, let them melt, cut open the bag, and pour the solution down the drain using hot water to dissolve the gel.
Believe it or not, these are also 100% recyclable! They’re made from FSC-certified cardboard and pulper-safe metalized film.
Take them out of the box, flatten them, and put them out with your paper recycling.
