While meal delivery services offer unparalleled convenience, they also generate tons of single-use trash in the process.

Sun Basket is a company that has been cognisant of this since it began operating and initially offered a program where consumers could ship empty boxes back to the company for reuse. Unfortunately, very few consumers were taking advantage of this program, but Sun Basket took it as an opportunity to innovate.

Sun Basket recently unveiled a 100% recyclable and compostable packaging system, which includes freezer packs that are made from 98% water and 2% non-GMO cotton material. As well as being a model for other subscription boxes and meal delivery services, Sun Basket sets a new standard for future eCommerce packaging.
