When we started Sunnie, one of our main goals was to ensure that we were doing our part to preserve the planet. That’s why first and foremost, we are a plant-forward company . We are also focused on making sustainable choices that are good for everyone, and this includes our packaging. All Sunnie boxes are a blend of EcoStar post-consumer recycled PET and compostable material. Our vision for the future is that we are 100% compostable.
- We are 100% Organic
- Plant Forward
- Recyclable Packaging
- Reusable Cooler Bags
- Food Waste
We are 100% organic. Organic farming is widely considered to be a far more sustainable alternative when it comes to food production. The lack of pesticides and wider variety of plants enhances biodiversity and results in better soil quality and reduced pollution from fertilizer and pesticide runoff.
Eating plants—instead of eating animals who eat plants—cuts out the enormous environmental burden that goes along with animal agriculture.
We’ve worked hard to make sure that the items in our lunch kits are recyclable, but we know that we have room to do better. We are currently working on testing new packaging that is 100% compostable. Until then, we are doing what we can to best support our planet.
- Our box, insert and lid are all made with EcoStar® post-consumer recycled PET material. Recycle in your curbside recycling bin. Or if you’re like us and find legos, bracelets or other small toys lying around, they make great great storage containers! We’ve also used them to store art supplies.
- Our sauce containers and treat bags are compostable, renewable and eco-friendly. Made from corn.
- Packaging sleeves have been created to be upcycled. Check out the coloring activities on the inside! Make art out of trash.
- Smoothie pouch and cap - We are working to find the best place to send these to, to be recycled. It’s our top priority.
Reusable Cooler Bags
Our Sunnie cooler bags are dropped off to customers who purchase 4 or more lunches. For any customer drop off, we ask that they place either a Sunnie tote or another insulated bag on their doorstep prior to delivery. Our ice packs are also reusable and can be given to us to reuse.
We partner with our distributors to ensure that our food is not going to waste. Food that is close to the end of it’s shelf life date(but still fresh) is picked up and brought to our local community. We love to have pizza party Fridays where we bring some Sunnie to those in underserved communities. If you are in the surrounding LA area and know of an organization that could use some Sunnie, please send us a line: firstname.lastname@example.org as we are always looking to expand our footprint.
