Raising the Bar on Jars

We put a lot of thought and care into what goes inside each Green Chef box, beyond the fresh ingredients.

With an aim for greater sustainability and eco-friendliness in mind, we’re always taking steps to improve our packaging. The new, tinier, more efficient Green Chef box was just the beginning. Now our jars are getting a makeover.

We’re switching to #5 plastic jars. #5 plastic jars are dishwasher safe, which makes them perfect for reuse. Use these jars to store buttons, craft supplies, paint, or even shampoo and toiletries. Got a creative way of reusing our jars? Let us know in the comments below.

Plus, in case you didn’t know, our newest jute insulation is 100% plant-based and made of 85% recycled materials. It’s also municipally compostable in many areas. What the heck is jute? We’re glad you asked: Jute is a rapidly renewable plant material sourced from recycled burlap bags.

These new changes have been rolling out over the past weeks. Check out greenchef.com/packaging for more information, including how to reuse and recycle materials.
