What Packaging Materials Do You Use?

We are not just concerned about the food you put in your body, but we are also mindful about how our packaging impacts our environment. Even though we have been around longer than most other meal delivery programs, our commitment to green products and strict nutrition standards has never changed.

ARE YOUR CONTAINERS GREEN?

Our environmentally-friendly GO-GREEN meal trays are made from recycled bottle caps. The trays are manufactured with a process that utilizes 30% less energy, 30% fewer materials, and 21% reduced CO2 emissions, and are 100% recyclable. We also opted to forgo the cardboard sleeve that many of our competitors use to eliminate additional waste.

CAN I RECYCLE THE CONTAINERS?

The trays are fully recyclable with your curbside recycling. After you finish your Seattle Sutton's meal just rinse out the container and add it to your recycling bin. 

WHAT ABOUT THE PLASTIC BAGS MY MEALS COME IN?

The bags are fully recyclable as well. They are made of high density polyethylene which is one of the most commonly recycled plastics. It is also considered one of the safest plastics to use. This type of plastic is the same as in milk jugs, oil bottles, and detergent containers. Our bags are also perfect to be reused since they are sturdy and easy to handle, feel free to use them any way you see fit! 

CAN I RECYCLE THE BOX AND PACKAGING FROM MY DELIVERY?

Yes! For customers that receive shipments via our National Home Delivery service, the corrugated boxes and all packing materials are recyclable. The frozen gel packs can be reused or disposed of safely by following the directions on the package.

ARE THE CONTAINERS MICROWAVABLE?

The meal containers are microwavable so your meals can be placed right in the microwave for your convenience. However, it is not recommended to use the trays under a broiler or in a toaster oven. We recommend that you refer to the meal's preparation instructions for the recommended heating and serving for each individual meal. If you are heating meals in the microwave, we recommend to pulling back the corner of the plastic film and heating with the film venting to properly steam the food inside. We love the convenience of our containers... just grab, heat, and eat!

CAN I FREEZE MY MEALS IN THE CONTAINER?

While we encourage you to enjoy your meals fresh, many of our meals can be frozen in the containers safely. With the exception of meals containing fresh items such as an apple or green salad, you can freeze meals safely to enjoy later.
