Is the packaging recyclable?
The plastic container is made of polypropylene, #5 plastic which is accepted in the majority of communities in the US for recycling.
How do I recycle the packaging?
The plastic container can be recycled at curbside or drop-off recycling centers that accept #5 plastic. Please check your community to find out where #5 plastic is accepted. If you cannot recycle #5 plastic in your area, please mail them to Preserve, where #5 plastic will be recycled. Check here for how to mail them back.
Are you going to use biodegradable packaging?
The short answer is no. We dedicated a lot of time researching and came to the conclusion that recyclable packaging is a better choice than biodegradable at the moment. A primary driver for our decision is that the biodegradable materials only degrade in certain environments requiring the right amount of humidity and specific temperature. The access to such specific environments is currently limited in the US. When biodegradable materials end up in the landfills, they do not degrade. By contrast we use #5 plastic which can be recycled through the existing recycling system and made into new plastic products. In this way, the packaging does not go into landfills after one-time use.
