We pride ourselves on our forward-thinking packaging. Our recycled cardboard boxes are 100% recyclable, and we're testing a few types of eco-friendly insulation that protect your veggies in transit. (In warmer weather, we also use nontoxic ice packs made from a water-based formula.) Here's what you might see in your box.
This five-sided piece is made of 100% paper so it's certified curbside recyclable. Its thin profile saves resources (no plastic necessary!) and the fluted design custom fits your Misfits Market box to help protect your items in transit.
With an interior that’s 100% percent curbside recyclable, this paper-based insulation is filled with air to help cushion your veggies. It’s covered by a clear film exterior that you can recycle with other #4 plastics.
We make every effort to minimize the use of resources, however, in some instances it’s necessary to protect more sensitive items in transit. In lieu of plastic produce bags, we use a plant-based bag with a resin compound. It's fully compostable at home or via municipal/industrial composting services. If no such composting services exist near you, you can always reuse them. And you can rest assured that they'll biodegrade far faster than plastic even if they do end up in the trash.
