Thinking Outside the Box

Thinking Outside the Box

Read time: 2 min

As a young company, we aim to keep our packaging as fresh as the meals they deliver. That’s why we design our boxes around the golden trio of sustainable packaging- reduce, reuse, recycle. Most everything in your box is completely recyclable, compostable or biodegradable.

The Box

Made from 80% recycled materials and 100% curb-side recyclable- just be sure to let your cat play with them first!

The Insulator

Our all natural, sheep’s wool insulator is completely biodegradable and compostable. After keeping your meals cool during delivery, it doubles as perfect material for crafts, cat beds, or even bird nest materials (leave it outside and watch them flock in). The plastic bag it comes in is 100% recyclable, food grade polythene — just separate it from the wool and recycle with your plastics!

Ice packs

Our ice packs are filled with water for easy disposal— just drain them and recycle. Alternatively, you can re-freeze them to use on summer picnics or in school lunches.


We use daily serve cat food pouches (two meals in one) to cut our plastic waste in half, and since we portion and cook your cat’s meal in the same pouch that gets delivered to your door, we have zero food waste in our kitchens. Sadly the special heat-resistant plastic is not recyclable yet, but we’re working on new alternatives for 2021.

This isn’t over

We’ll never stop thinking of ways to reduce our waste, and are also designing various Reuse Programs so our cat people will be able to return their packaging to us every few deliveries for future use.

Think outside the box!

Our cats see more to a cardboard box and so should we. Show us what you do to re-use your KatKin packaging!
