Recycling & Packaging
The box that your fruit and veg comes in is totally recyclable. Even the paper tape. Feel free to leave your box out for us to collect when we drop you a new one. We often reuse them or find them a new home.
We try to use as little plastic as possible in the box - we put a lot of emphasis on this when speaking with our growers. However sometimes, to keep your produce fresh, we have no choice but to use plastic for things like lettuce etc.
What do you do with your surplus fruit and vegetables?
Wonky is a ZERO food waste business! At the end of every week, when we have packed up the boxes we donate any leftover fruit and veggies to food banks around Wellington. Most of our surplus is given to Everybody Eats in the city centre who are on a mission to tackle food poverty, social isolation and food waste.

Most of my veg isn’t misshapen!
We rescue fruit and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste. This could be because they are Wonky but also because there is are too many, the produce is too big or too small or there are marks on skin. They still taste delicious but the main markets don’t want to stock them.
In 2020 Nelson regions experienced some really shoddy weather during a key month for kiwi fruit growing. A big hail storm wiped out millions of dollars of kiwifruit and apples leaving tiny holes on the produce that were still on the trees. The fruit was still perfectly edible but the main markets didn’t want to stock them on the shelves.
Fruit and veg is considered safe within our health service. It has been reported that it is very unlikely that COVID-19 can be spread via packaging and food. Nonetheless, it is mandatory for all staff to wear sterile gloves when packing your box.
In the event of an outbreak and an increase in Level of Alert, we will do our best to continue delivering within local guidelines. However if we cannot get your box to you, you will be notified and you will not be charged.
