'How can food be delivered in zero-waste packaging at mass scale?'
Our answer: The Milkman, technology enabled.
Back to the future.
Everyone who’s used a national meal kit service has experienced the insane amounts of packaging they come in. Watch this video to see how incredibly wasteful and harmful all that packaging really is!
This weeks’ Lettuce delivery helped avoid of plastic waste from hitting the landfill.
Bravo for doing your part!
No one we know loves dealing with trash and recycling. Lettuce customers significantly reduce the level of trash and recycling they have to deal with.
With the conventional ways it takes time to find the right individually wrapped ingredients, among several others. With Lettuce, that’s a thing of the past – perfectly proportioned, in 1 container/recipe, ready to prepare and cook.
At the store, when you buy something wrapped in throwaway packaging, you are paying not just for the food, but also the packaging – only to throw it away. With Lettuce because we reuse containers over and over again, we pass the savings on to you – hence our slow prices.
While recycling is better than packaging ending up in the landfill, the environmental and economic costs of recycling are significant. Reuse is a better solution.
Lettuce’s reusable containers go through a rigorous, efficient commercial-grade cleaning process that ensures that each container is as clean as new before every delivery.
Cleaning and reusing containers carry a significantly lower carbon footprint than recycling, or using throwaway packaging.
