Building a better Sun Basket

Here at Sun Basket, one of our top priorities is making sure your meals arrive fresh and safe in the most environmentally responsible packaging available. Our team, which includes the most innovative designers in the business, is committed to developing fully recyclable and compostable materials for our boxes.

High Heat Zone Insulation

What is it made of?
100% reclaimed denim. The liner is a #4 store drop-off recyclable low density polyethylene.

Where does it go?
Cut open the plastic bag and recycle reclaimed denim (where #60 cotton is accepted). If your local recycling center is not able to process #60 cotton, dispose in your regular waste—it will biodegrade. To process the liner, find a participating retailer near you who accepts store drop-off bags, wraps and film.

Ice Packs

What are they made of?
A gel that's 98% water and 2% non–GMO cotton. The liner is a #4 store drop-off recyclable low density polyethylene.

Where do they go?
Cut open the plastic bag and drain the gel into your trash or curbside compost bin. The water will evaporate, leaving only the dried, compostable cotton behind. Alternatively, use the gel to water your garden. (Pro tip: Save your plumbing–do not pour the gel down the drain.) To process the liner, find a participating retailer near you who accepts store drop-off bags, wraps and film.

Plastic Bags

What are they made of?
#4 recyclable low density polyethylene.

Where do they go?
Make sure your recycling program accepts them. If they don't, find a place near you that does.
