FreshRealm uses a layered, insulated box in order to preserve its contents and cut down on waste

Our global waste problem doesn't just come from food but also the packaging that it comes in. The problem stems from food-kit companies whose primary purpose is to give clients easy meals they can make in a snap without eco-friendly leftover packaging. A new competitor in the market, FreshRealm, utilizes a reusable box system.

In order to keep the products fresh and intact, as well as be durable and reusable, the 17-inch cubes are made of polyurethane and contain five drawers to keep different ingredients at the ideal temperature. Rather than keeping the box, customers simply attach a return slip on the box and send it back through FedEx's pickup system. Other food-kits encourage recycling or give customers the option to send the package back.
