Recycle with HelloFresh
After receiving your umpteenth HelloFresh box, not only will you have broadened your culinary repertoire, but you will also have built up an enviable collection of HelloFresh packaging. Once you have shown off your collection to friends and family, then please recycle and help with our mission to become more sustainable and limit waste.
What can you recycle and how?
Our ice packs are completely non-toxic, they are filled with water and nothing else. Re-use them for a picnic or use the water to water your plants and then recycle the plastic casting.
Our wool liners are 100% wool, so you can put them on your compost heap. However, if you don't have a compost heap and you want to recycle these beautiful liners, you can send them back to us for free. So, there's no need for emotional goodbyes; you will probably see the same wool liner recycled and used in your next box. Just follow the instructions below!
Our boxes are made from all biodegradable and recyclable materials. So, just fold and discard the cardboard with other household recyclables.
Our boxes are FSC certified. What's FSC? The Forest Stewardship council are charged with protecting the world's forests for future generations. FSC certification means that the paper used for our boxes has been sourced in an environmentally friendly, socially responsible and economically viable manner.
Packaging inside our boxes
Compared to supermarkets, we keep our packaging very minimal. However, as we want to keep our ingredients as fresh as possible, so that when you open them you can savour every bite, we do have to package some of our ingredients. Our boxes, brown bags and some of our ingredients' packaging can be recycled like your normal items at home. Our wool liners are bio-degradable so they are great for compost if you're a gardening enthusiast!
We can also re-use your wool liners if you send them to us by following four simple steps:
- After enjoying your HelloFresh meals, fill one box with as many wool liners as possible. Please keep them carefully, they need to be intact and clean for return. We can't re-use any damaged wool liners. The more liners per return, the lower our carbon footprint.
- Once your box is full, click here. Enter your e-mail address, and print the label.
- Locate your nearest Collect+ store (there are over 5,800 in the UK), and shepherd your box to the store whenever you can.
