Is dry ice safe and how do I dispose of the packaging?
March 24, 2022
Our National Home Delivery uses dry ice in insulated boxes to keep the ice cream frozen.
Dry ice is safe and will be sent in a sealed, labelled envelope. Please do not open the contents and touch it directly with your hands as it can cause freezer burn. Once you have unboxed your delivery, leave the dry ice in a well-ventilated space (away from little hands!) for 24 hours or until it is fully evaporated. All that will be left is the wrapper it came in which can be dispose of in normal waste.
How to dispose of DeliverMOO packaging:
- Cardboard Box: This is 100% recyclable and can be recycled at home in your card recycling.
- Liners: We use state of the art recycled off cuts from the cotton industry. These are offcuts that would previously have been going into landfill – giving garments a longer life. Cotton is biodegradable and 100% reusable. We are accepting clean liners back to the farm for re-using (please see below FAQ)
- Dry Ice Barrier Bag: Once the dry ice has evaporated, separate the bubble from the paper envelope, and recycle as normal.
- Ice Cream Tubs: The plastic lids and cardboard bases are widely accepted in local curb side collections.
