Sustainability and the Enviroment

With each pierogi, you savor not only incredible taste but also the satisfaction of making a mindful choice for the planet.

  • Recycle

    All our cardboard tubes are fully recyclable, biodegradable and contain recycled material.

    As long as the cardboard is clean and dry then you can place it inside your recycling bin.

    Recycling cardboard is that easy!

  • Environmental Inpact

    Our cardboard tubes are manufactured from mixed sources, with each cardboard tube containing 70% recycled material and 30% from either reclaimed material or managed forest.

  • BPA Free

    Our Tubes are BPA free.

    Some people are concerned about BPA’s ability to leach into foods and beverages, and some research suggests that BPA exposure may lead to a number of health problems.

  • Reuse

    Why not repurpose, refilled or reused our tubes after you have eaten all your pierogi.

    This further reduce the environmental impact.

    Why not try to use them as plant pots or pencil cases.

We clean up after ourselves.

E-commerce deliveries have a carbon footprint. That's why we support cutting-edge companies that remove carbon from the air.

Here's how it works: For every order we receive, a formula is used to calculate the estimated shipping emissions. Based on those estimates, a portion of our revenue goes to carbon removal companies that have been vetted by scientists from Carbon Direct.

Those companies use that money to remove however much carbon our shipments created. Any extra funds go toward the further development of carbon removal technologies.

Let's meet a few of the companies removing carbon from the sky.

Heirloom

Heirloom's direct air capture technology enhances the carbon mineralization process. Heirloom's technology speeds up the rate at which naturally occurring minerals capture CO₂ rather than using energy-intensive fans to draw air in.

Remora

Remora captures CO₂ from semi-truck tailpipes as they drive, with the CO₂ destined for long-term storage.

Charm

Charm captures CO₂ using plant waste, converts it into a stable, carbon-rich liquid, and safely stores it deep underground—out of reach of wildfires and soil erosion.
