Sustainability & Packaging

Vac Pack Bags

Vac Pack bags should be cleaned and recycled

Ice Packs

Options for Ice packs:

  1. Store or share for re-use.
  2.  Put in Rubbish bin (we're not proud to say that, and are looking for more sustainable packing solutions) 
  3.  Let the ice packs defrost, cut open the ice packs water absorbing material leaving it somewhere to dry. Recycle the plastic material with your soft-plastics and put the small amount of water absorbing material (it squashes down to a small amount) in the household rubbish.

We love this video about soft plastics! (Courtesy of a great kiwi soft plastics initiative we want to go nationwide!)


Fresh Chef polystyrene bins are made by our partner Hope Moulded are are 100% Recyclable. 
Unfortunately they usually aren't allowed in your recycling at home.
Some customers cut them down to reduce their space and put them in their rubbish at home. But we do recommend recycling where possible!
You can drop them at selected Mitre 10's who have an Expol Recylcling cube.
