We've worked closely with our suppliers to create packaging that is 100% recyclable or made of biodegradable materials.
Here's how to dispose of your One Potato packaging in the most environmentally friendly way:
Your box (made from 100% recycled cardboard) should be flattened and then recycled with standard cardboard/paper recycling.
All small plastic bags can be recycled with plastic recyclables. These are #4 and #2 recyclables respectively. Our dry ingredient bags are now 100% biodegradable because they are made from cornstarch! The bags we use for sauces and other perishable ingredients are food-grade, BPA-free plastic. Be sure to rinse them out before tossing them in the recycling bin!
The liner is made from recycled plastic bottles. The outside is recyclable with your plastics, and the inside is made of biodegradable materials. Please remove the outside layer and recycle, and dispose of the inside in your regular garbage.
Our ice packs are filled with a non-toxic gel. Simply defrost, rinse the biodegradable gel down the drain and recycle the bag. Or freeze and reuse them to keep on-the-go snacks or lunches cold.
Note: Please always check with your local municipality as recycling capabilities can vary.
