About Our Packaging

We searched far and wide to find the most sustainable take-out packaging available. We set ourselves the goal of finding completely compostable packaging so you can put the items right into your Green Bin. And where we couldn’t find compostable, we have settled for packaging that is fully recyclable and you can put these items right into your Blue Bin. None of the take-out & delivery packaging you get from Richmond Station should end up in the landfill. 

Products are made from annually renewable resources like sugar cane fiber, wheat straw fiber and corn and fully compostable in a commercial composting facility within 1-3 months. They all pass ASTM 6400 and are BPI certified for compostability. Unlike many other companies, our packaging partner does not sell other plastic products to complement their line and are on a mission to only provide 100% truly compostable products.

Here is a detailed outline of what your order might come with and instructions on how to recycle or upcycle the items.


THE BAG

RECYCLABLE = Blue Bin

Your order will be packed in a brown paper bag that is fully recyclable.  That is, if you don’t choose to reuse it.  Our bags are great for repurposing as crafts for children or for presents!  Add your own ideas, or put the bag in your Blue Bin.


THE CONTAINERS

COMPOSTABLE = Green Bin

We are using a variety of different packaging.  Burgers and salads each have unique packaging.  Either way, the item you’ve ordered is being placed in a plant fiber container that is fully compostable.  They are BCI Certified and will break down in two to four months in a commercial composting facility.  You can put them directly into your Green Bin.


THE CUTLERY

COMPOSTABLE = Green Bin

All the cutlery packaged in your order is biodegradable.  The cutlery is made from cornstarch and while we don’t recommend putting in your backyard composter, you can certainly feel good about adding it to your Green Bin.


THE NAPKINS

COMPOSTABLE = Green Bin

Our napkins are made from 100% recycled paper and can be added to your city Green Bin even once their soiled.  Once a napkin is soiled, you can no longer add it to your Blue Bin.


THE ICED COFFEE CUPS

COMPOSTABLE = Green Bin

Our take-out coffee cups are fully compostable and when you’re done with your drink you can put the cup and the lid right into your Green Bin.


THE COCKTAIL GLASS

RECYCLABLE = Blue Bin

Our house-made bottled beverages are packaged in a fully recyclable glass bottle.   You can put the plastic lid and glass bottle right into your Blue Bin when you’re done.
