100% Delicious, 100% Recyclable

We believe Tovala Meals should make it easier to eat better without creating a lot of waste in the process. That’s why we worked hard to make sure that all of our meal packaging is recyclable!

How We Keep Tovala Meals Fresh

When you receive a Tovala Meal, they arrive in a box, nestled between insulation and a pair of gel ice packs. You’ll find it sitting on your doorstep looking something like this:

By using only insulation and gel packs to keep your meals fresh, our goal is to minimize waste. And the best part is that you can recycle or reuse both components!

Recycling Tovala Meals

The Tovala Meals inside the box will look just like what you see below. Some meals only consist of one tray (like our Asparagus and Sweet Pea Baked Rigatoni), while others consist of two (like our Thai Turkey Meatballs).

Here’s what’s in each sleeve:

  • 1 or 2 aluminum trays sealed with a plastic film to keep your food fresh while it travels to you
  • 1 white collapsible cardboard garnish tray with plastic garnish cups inside (the number of garnish cups varies depending on the meal)
  • 1 piece of standard cardboard between the 2 trays (if it’s a meal with 2 trays) to keep the bottom tray’s film from opening

Recyclable plastic and cardboard make up every component.
