Meal Delivery

"In the span of a few short years, more than 100 companies have jumped into the meal kit game. Millions of cardboard boxes arrive on urban and rural doorsteps every month, holding everything one needs to cook dinner, down to the rice wine vinegar and panko.

Ingredients are packaged in exact proportions, ready to be chopped or sautéed according to well-illustrated recipe cards. In less than an hour, even a mediocre cook with salt, pepper and cooking oil can produce an Instagram-worthy meal.

The one consistent complaint about the kits is what seems to be excessive packaging. The nation’s desire for the kits is ahead of the logistics and packaging industries, which are scrambling to keep up."

There are many so-called solutions vying for your attention to address the packaging issue.  

Almost all alternatives to EPS have a poor end-of-life scenario.  Our competitors have tricked many well-meaning customers by telling them to "place insulation in your trash guilt-free" based on the lie that trash biodegrades in a landfill. There is pervasive misinformation regarding biodegradation, especially in landfills, and many companies utilizing denim, jute, bamboo, cotton, wool, and rock wool profit from it.  

 

§ 260.8 Degradable claims.

(c) It is deceptive to make an unqualified degradable claim for items entering the solid waste stream if the items do not completely decompose within one year after customary disposal. Unqualified degradable claims for items that are customarily disposed in landfills, incinerators, and recycling facilities are deceptive because these locations do not present conditions in which complete decomposition will occur within one year.

 

Admirably, these materials are often sourced from recycled or sustainable sources.  Denim comes from blue jeans, jute from burlap sacks, and cellulose from newsprint.  Unfortunately, they all require a significant percentage of polyester fiber to glue the organic fibers together and provide loft.  Not only is this material not biodegradable or compostable, it is a heavier and needlessly expensive and complex alternative.
