Like you, we hate unnecessary waste. So we’ve made it our aim to bring you our meals with the minimum of packaging. But we need your help.
FED. meals have been thoughtfully packaged in home compostable packaging with recyclable lids. The lids are clear so that you can see what’s inside. But WATCH OUT they are not heat proof. If you expose them to heat they will melt, just like your Mr Whippy on a hot day.
If you have a home composter you can put your trays in there. If not the packaging needs to be taken to an industrial composting facility. Sadly there is currently no council collection for these but those good folks at Z Energy has very helpfully put compostable bins in its gas stations, so next time you’re filling up, you can also drop off your old empties. Good eh.
The clear lids are made from virgin grade PET which is fully recyclable in NZ. You can put these in your kerbside or public recycling and it will be collected by your local recycler.
The small clear containers used for condiments and herbs are made from plants, not oil and are certified commercially compostable – so pop them in a green bin NOT in the recycling.
Unfortunately for health and safety reasons, we are unable to take returned FED. boxes.
You can recycle the boxes with your household recycling and leave your woolcool and ice packs out for us to collect when we deliver your meals
WOOLCOOL AND ICE PACKS
Inside the boxes is a layer of insulation called Woolcool, a sustainable and highly effective natural insulation material that is made out of sheep’s wool. The best part about Woolcool is its recyclable, so please leave your Woolcool out for your delivery driver to collect when you get your next box and we’ll reuse it.
