Since the end of 2019, we have been using 100% planet friendly packaging for all of our fresh fruit boxes. Fresh fruit is one of the most difficult things to ship because not only does it ripen in transit, most fruits are also super soft and fragile. It's very important to protect the fruit while still allowing it to "breathe". Here's a breakdown of how we safely ship you fruit to keep you healthy while also prioritizing the health of our planet.
We switched from using styrofoam fruit protectors (that take hundreds of years to break down) to hand made "pillows" made from recycled tissue paper and shredded wood. They protect the fruit from damage in transit and the shredded wood can be used as mulch for your plants.
Recyclable, Biodegradable, and Reusable Boxes
Cardboard is naturally a compostable material, but we also designed these boxes to be extra thick to withstand any roughing they might get in transit. Our cardboard boxes are made from recycled paper.
Water Activated Paper Tape
Kraft paper tape is completely recyclable and biodegradable. One side is coated with a starch-based adhesive that gets sticky when activated with water.
