    Recycling and Sustainability

    Did you know the world is using less cardboard today than we did 20 years ago? It seems unbelievable with the number of Amazon boxes that we have delivered to the house every day. But it's true because the industry has become much more efficient at packing and shipping. 

    At Clean Eatz, we are on a constant initiative to reduce our footprint when shipping our meal plans. We receive a lot of feedback from our customers on the sustainability of our products when they receive a shipment. While it may seem like there is a lot of packaging materials used to get your meals to you, here is how we view our impact on the environment and how you can help:

    Clean Eatz strives to take any economically feasible steps to minimize the impact of our business. With your help, we can help reduce our footprint to only the fossil fuels needed to transport the product. In fact, a majority of our products are actually produced in North Carolina (where we are), which reduces our carbon emissions footprint with the benefit of helping local industry. 

     

    CARDBOARD BOXES

    Our cardboard boxes are made including recycled cardboard. Our boxes are made 15 miles from our facility making our impact local and minimal.

    You can help - recycle the cardboard

     


    INSULATED LINERS

    Our liners are made from recycled blue jean scraps wrapped in a moisture-proof plastic coating. Our liners are made 200 miles from our facility.

    You can help - cut open the liners. The blue insulation can go to any cotton recycling bin (t-shirt bin) and the plastic coating can be recycled with plastic bags

     


     

    DRY ICE

      Our dry ice is reclaimed carbon dioxide from a byproduct of industry. This allows us to "recycle" carbon dioxide and use it twice rather than emitting it into the atmosphere. Our dry ice is made 150 miles from our facility.

       


       

      MEAL PLAN CONTAINERS

        Our containers are made including recycled plastic.
        You can help - recycle or reuse the containers

        MEAL PLAN SLEEVES

        Our sleeves are made including recycled paper. Our sleeves are made 25 miles from our facility. 

        You can help - recycle the sleeves with paper


          As you can see, all of our shipping products contain at least some parts recycled materials, allowing us to reduce our impact in an otherwise wasteful industry. Please, be thoughtful in how you use and dispose of our products to help minimize our collective impact on our earth. 

           

          Fish Meal Plans have Arrived!

          You spoke and we listened. We've been receiving a lot of request for an alternative white meat meal plan that doesn't contain poultry. We've been working for months with the FDA to produce and sell meal plans that contain fish, and now they're ready!

          We're looking forward to providing shrimp, mahi, scallops, cod, and more through our new fish meal plans. 

          The fish meal plans are going to be a great alternative to our poultry items and will provide another lite, low-fat alternative to red meat. 

          Introducing Family Meals

          Based on feedback from our customers, we have started to sell family meals. Our family meals are a larger-portioned meal that are intended to feed two adults and two children. 

          The macros printed on the meal are split into four equal portions. So you may consider the two adults are going to eat more than the listed amounts and the two children will eat less. 

          No kids? No problem. Lots of our customers are ordering family meals as a dinner alternative for two. Leftovers can be saved just like any other dinner and reheated the next day for a healthy lunch or dinner. The family meal pricing is a great way to save money on meal prep. 

          Each family meal is served "casserole-style" and will contain a protein, carbohydrate, and vegetable. This allows for a more even and consistent reheating of the meal. We recommend you serve our family meals with a side salad. 

          Our family meals are portioned to serve two adults and two children. We recommend serving our family meals with a salad. 

          • Our family meals are fully-cooked entrees that can be easily reheated for a quick and convenient dinner for four. Let us make life easier for you this week - no shopping, no chopping.
          • Our family meals come frozen in a microwaveable and oven-safe plastic container. Meals can be heated directly in the container or transferred to a 13"x9" baking dish and warmed in the microwave (~12 minutes) or oven (~45 minutes). We recommend taking the meals out of the freezer and placing in the refrigerator the morning you plan to eat the meal, which will reduce the reheating time and cook the meal more evenly. 
          • Your order of four family meals can be stored in your freezer for up to two months so there's no need to worry about waste.
