What materials do you use for your packaging?

We design all of our packaging with food safety, product integrity, and sustainability in mind. To find out where you can recycle our packaging, visit www.earth911.org. Simply enter your zip code and the type of material you want to recycle. We also encourage you to reuse your containers for art projects, food storage, or to start plants for the garden. Here are the specific types packaging we use:  
    • Yogurt Containers:  Our yogurt containers and lids are made with #5 food-grade plastic. We chose the lighter weight #5 plastic in order to minimize the environmental impact of our packaging. The containers are BPA, BPS, phthalate and PVC free and don’t contain chloride that releases dioxins when heated. Underneath the lid, the cups are protected with an aluminum foil seal that is thinly coated in plastic, in order to prevent the product from coming into contact with the aluminum. This type of mixed-material seal is typically not recyclable, but we recommend checking with your local recycling facility to make sure.
    • Kefir Containers: Our kefir containers and lids are made with #2 food-grade plastic. They are BPA, BPS, phthalate and PVC free, and don’t contain chloride that releases dioxins when heated.
