World Earth Day with a side of HelloFresh

So, you’ve given your wardrobe a good old spring clean, taken your old clothes to charity and handed down your old garments to your siblings. Over recent years many of us have decided to take a sustainable approach to the way we shop for our clothes, however, have you thought about the ways in which you buy and cook your food? 

As it’s Earth Day we’ve partnered with HelloFresh to get the deets on simplie, easy, and effective ways you can incorporate a sustainable approach to cooking into your lifestyle. 

Sustainability is a huge part of HelloFresh’s ethos. They provide sustainable ways on how to buy, prepare, and enjoy food. They prioritise sourcing local British products so only fresh, seasonal ingredients make it into your box. HelloFresh customers waste 21% less food than those buying from supermarkets, every ingredient in their recipe boxes is measured in the right amounts for each individual meal.

If you’re pescatraian or an avid seafood lover then HelloFresh’s fish and seafood products are about to become your new go to. As they’re part of the Sustainable Seafood Coalition, all their fish and seafood is sourced responsibly, and they work to ensure a healthy future for our oceans.

Always looking at how your food is packaged? Yeah, us too. We’ve found that a huge amount of excess packaging is used on our fresh produce that isn’t necessary. Luckily, HelloFresh is part of an ongoing investment in packaging innovation, they recently changed their cool pouches from plastic to paper. As well as keeping your ingredients fresh and chilled, the paper cool pouch is also recyclable, saving up to 262g of plastic per box from landfill.  

They have also partnered with Plastic Bank on an ocean-bound plastic recovery program, preventing 37.5 million plastic bottles from entering the ocean over the next 3 years. They’re the first global carbon-neutral recipe box company, committed to offsetting 100% of direct carbon emissions. 

So, you’re probably wondering how to get your hands on a HelloFresh box. First off, we don’t blame you as their recipes are gorge, they’re super easy to make as all the ingredients are labelled and weighed out for you, and you don’t have to figure out what meals you have to cook that week and do the dreaded Sunday food shop. 

Grab yourself a HelloFresh box by heading to their website and following four steps:

  1. How many people you’ll be feeding,
  2. How many recipes you’d like,
  3. What your dietary preferences are,
  4. Then it’s time to choose your meals.
