How The Future Does Packaging
Meet Green Cell Foam, the most eco-friendly packaging available. Made from Indiana grown corn, Green Cell Foam is compostable, bio-based, and safely dissolves down your kitchen sink under running water. It’s also great plant food, a clean fuel source for your fire pit or charcoal grill!
We have partnered with Green Cell Foam and are committed to using their incredibly advanced, biodegradable coolers in every Mr. Steak meat box.
Green Cell Plus takes 3-panel sections of Green Cell Foam and envelops them in a polyethylene film to provide an effective barrier against moisture and humidity. The plastic film is readily recyclable in most communities.
100% Carbon Neutral Shipping
We’ve committed to offsetting each and every Mr. Steak box shipment. In order to do this we have partnered with ‘The Cool Effect’ on a project that turns Cow and other animal waste into clean energy by using machines known as biogas digesters.
Biogas is a mixture of methane and CO2 that resembles propane and can be used in all the ways propane is used. Biogas needs a methane producing bacteria to be successful and these are found in animal waste, food scraps and sewage.
In this project, a biodigester is built below animal pens so that manure flows directly into a chamber. The waste naturally decomposes, producing methane gas that is piped to a cookstove inside the house as clean cooking fuel.
At the end of the process, the digester also produces a very effective organic fertilizer that can be directly applied to farm fields, creating a natural cycle of quality crops. Compost not only saves money on fertilizer for farming families, it also provides a source of income when extra compost can be sold.
The program’s impact also improves the health of local communities by creating a sanitation system that provides a waste collection point and increases agricultural productivity. Clean cooking fuel, healthier homes, better crops!
For every Mr. Steak box you purchase we invest in this worthwhile program. This investment makes your box shipment 100% carbon neutral while supporting poor families around the world.
