What kind of packaging does a Wildgrain Box have?Updated a month ago

Your Wildgrain Box will arrive with the following packaging:

Box: Your Wildgrain products will ship in a cardboard box, which is curbside recyclable.

Insulation Liner: To help keep your Wildgrain products cold in transit, we include a cardboard insulation liner, which is curbside recyclable.

Dry Ice: To help keep your Wildgrain products cold in transit, we include dry ice. Most of the time, the dry ice is in block form and each block is inside a soft plastic bag. The soft plastic bag is not recyclable and needs to be disposed of in the trash. The dry ice bags are not sealed; they need to remain open for evaporation. Sometimes, our fulfillment centers pack the dry ice without the plastic bags. And if dry ice blocks are not available, our fulfillment centers will have to use dry ice pellets instead.

Divider: A piece of cardboard that sits under the dry ice and on top of the products to help keep them separated. It is curbside recyclable.

Gel Packs: Our Enviro Ice™ gel packs are non-toxic and drain-safe. These eco-friendly gel packs can also be recycled as plant food. Simply pour the gel directly into the soil of indoor or outdoor plants, or dilute it with water for easier application (3/4 cup of gel per gallon of tap water for indoor plants and 2 cups of gel per gallon of tap water in a watering can). For the plastic pouch, we recommend simply rinsing it and recycling it anywhere #4 low-density polyethylene plastic is accepted.

Products: Wildgrain products are packaged in either soft plastic freezer-safe bags or shrinkwrap; both of these types of packaging needs to be disposed of in the trash. We've been searching for eco-friendly options, but the ones we tried haven't shipped well so far, so it's a work in progress!
