Hungryroot’s commitment to sustainability

Make customers feel great about what they eat and their impact on the planet.
Here's some tactics to support this commitment:

A direct-to-consumer supply chain that reduces the need for customers to drive to the store.

Lowering the chance of food waste at home by providing their customers with food-waste fighting recipes.


Every part of the box, paper cooler, and food protector shipped is 100% curbside recyclable, including the biodegradable ice packs.

Shopping for customers, resulting in zero-waste sourcing.

Hungryroot's challenge

As part of their commitment to sustainability, online grocery and recipe service, Hungryroot was searching for an eco-friendly insulated packaging solution to accommodate more volume in its deliveries and protect its high-quality food while in transit, especially during the winter months.

The solution

Hungryroot chose the Cascades northbox® XPERTISE team as a partner due to our eco-design approach, which has been part of the Cascades’ DNA since 1964. This approach is outlined in our 4th sustainable action plan, and includes the following goals:

  • Reduce our GHG emissions in scopes 1, 2 and 3. This has a direct impact on scope 3 emissions for our customers. We are already better than the industry average, but we’re aiming for even greater reductions.
  • By 2030, we are aiming for 100% of our products to be recyclable, compostable or reusable. The Cascades northbox® solution already meets this criteria by being prequalified as widely recyclable by How2Recycle® in Canada and the United States.
