We are proud to transition towards using more sustainable shipping materials! We are now incorporating biodegradable insulation into our shipping process. Our new insulation is a compostable and biodegradable, eco-friendly packaging and insulation made from non-GMO corn. Your Chocolate Covered Bites will stay cool and arrive greener than ever!

Green Cell Foam Disposal Process

1. Open your shipment of delicious Chocolate Covered Coconut Cookie Bites

2. Remove your cookies and ice pack from the box, then et your insulation panels aside. Cut the film that is surrounding the insulation panels and remove it from the panels. You can recycle this film with other #4 or single stream plastics. Please note that not all of the insulation is covered with film and if your insulation does not have film, skip ahead to step 3.

3. Remove the panels and place them into the sink basin. Run warm water over the insulation and the insulation will start to "melt" away under the warm water.

Our insulation is derived from corn starch and is safe for drains, septic systems and waste treatment centers. It is 100% compostable and will biodegrade in 60 days or less when placed in a moist soil environment. The insulation panels also burn cleanly and safely. We are so excited about this transition to greener shipping materials!
