Cutting back on packaging waste is really important to our customers, and it’s an issue we’re passionate about too - that’s why we’ve got a dedicated team to sustainability at Gousto.
In 2020 we achieved our target of reducing the plastic in our boxes by 50%, by making it smaller and switching to paper and card where possible.
Other changes we have made in our boxes include:
- Changing to the Eco Chill box instead of the previous Woolcool
- Sending eggs in a cardboard box rather than a plastic tub
- Sending loose potatoes and veggies instead of pre-portioned packets
- Switching pasta and rice packaging to brown paper instead of plastic
Now we’ve set our sights on the next target – the Packaging Pledge: which is focused on making all of Gousto's own or plain label packaging either Recyclable, Reusable or Compostable by the end of 2022.
