Conscious Unpackaging

, , , , , ,

Our steaks are a tradition in many families. Whether giving them or eating them, the Holiday Season cannot go without some Sweetwood steaks. We ship these amazing steaks across the Continental United States, quite the feat if you’ve ever tried shipping perishable goods. It is with open minds and our years of Holiday Season shipping behind us that we have decided to update our steak boxes to a more eco-friendly design.

Instead of a Styrofoam liner in our steak boxes, we have upgraded to a GreenLiner from IPC. This GreenLiner is considered “green” based upon the design being collapsible, making it easy to re-use or recycled properly. Our switch from styrofoam to this new greenliner is a conscious decision to help our environment and use better resources. It seems obvious to avoid styrofoam, it doesn’t recycle, it’s bulky for it’s weight, and it fills landfills disproportionaltely. For years, we have been using a gel pack that is high performance and very durable in an effort to make our gel packs reusable to our customers. Our Gel Packs are non-toxic with engineered materials that stay colder, longer.

These dry-aged steaks that are hand trimmed to perfection must not go to waste. Our steaks contain no antibiotics, no hormones are always prime cuts from naturally raised American beef. If Sweetwood isn’t a tradition in your house, you might want to start. You will undoubtedly be proclaimed the winner of the holidays.

When you are ordering your Holiday presents for this upcoming season, keep in mind that you are not just gifting steaks, you are gifting steaks in conscious packaging.
