WHAT AND HOW
TO RECYCLE

At Purple Carrot we are constantly evolving our packaging in an effort to reduce our own carbon footprint.

COMPOSTABLE
SCRAPS

COMPOSTABLE SCRAPS

Pro tip: Compost plant waste (think banana peels and carrot shavings) to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and eliminate pounds of landfill. Compost yourself or hand over scraps to your city composting program--either way, we believe it's always good to put things back where they came from.

NON-TOXIC
ICE PACKS

Melt the ice packs, cut them open, and pour the non-toxic gel into your trash. The remaining plastic is recyclable. Of course, you can also keep them handy for camping trips or picnics.

OUR
CARDBOARD BOX

Each Purple Carrot box is made from recycled material to reduce our own carbon footprint. The box can be broken down and easily added to your curbside recycling.
