PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Since 2016 Feast & Fettle has been a leader in developing a sustainable meal delivery service by collecting, sanitizing and reusing their insulated delivery bags and commercial grade ice packs.
Recently, Feast & Fettle launched a partnership with international recycling leader, TerraCycle that allows members to take the guesswork out of recycling. Since August, the Company has been collecting and consolidating their plastic food containers directly from member’s homes. The collected containers are transported from Feast & Fettle’s Rhode Island facility to a local TerraCycle Material Recovery Facility where the containers are broken down by their components and recycled into raw material that can be used to create new products such as outdoor furniture, watering cans, storage containers and athletic fields.
“At TerraCycle, we are committed to ensuring that waste continues to be diverted away from landfill and local communities,” said Dylan Layfield, TerraCycle Director, Business Development. “Feast & Fettle not only shares that commitment but has taken it to the next level with the implementation of the Container Return Program, setting a sustainable example for other meal delivery services through their efforts to preserve the environment and maximizing our ability to do-good.”
Since inception, Feast & Fettle has delivered their locally prepared meals in reusable bags with commercial grade ice packs, both of which are returned with every delivery. With the addition of the new Container Return Program, members are left with absolutely zero waste after enjoying their F&F meals.
“We’re extremely proud to take this step forward with TerraCycle. Our vertically integrated delivery model puts us in a unique position to ensure that members can enjoy our service sustainably, ” stated Feast & Fettle CEO, Carlos Ventura.
