Recycling FAQ


We're happy to hear that so many of our customers are environmentally-minded. We do our best to make sure that our product impacts the environment as little as possible; you can recycle all of the Mother Dirt packaging.

Thanks for keeping our environment clean!

Most of the components we use in our packaging are comprised of mixed materials, which are recyclable but aren't labeled as such. Here is the breakdown:

Mist bottles: place in the plastics recycling bin
  • The pump is made of polypropylene (#5), with high and low density polyethylene parts as well, (#2 and #4)
  • The bottle is primarily polypropylene (#5), with mixed polymer polyethylene again for the bag liner (#2 and #4)
  • The label is polypropylene (#5)
  • There are also no safety issues with the bottle having previously contained bacteria.

Shampoo bottles: place in the plastics recycling bin
  • The pump is polypropylene (#5), with high and low density polyethylene parts as well, (#2 and #4)
  • The bottle is polypropylene (#5), with high density polyethylene for the piston inside (#2)
  • The label is polypropylene (#5)

Cleanser bottles: place in the plastics recycling bin
  • The pump is polypropylene (#5), with high and low density polyethylene parts as well, (#2 and #4)
  • The bottle is high density polyethylene (#2)
  • The label is polypropylene (#5)

Boxes: place in the paper recycling bin
  • For the boxes, all printed materials are 100% recyclable in municipal paper recycling streams.

Air Boxes, for smaller shipments: place in the plastics recycling bin
  • The Air Boxes we mail in are made out of co-extruded polyethylene, and fall under recycling codes 2 and 4. Just toss them in the recycling bin!

XPander Packs, for larger shipments: place in the plastics recycling bin
  • XPander Packs are a mix of polyethylene and foam insulation, and fall under recycling codes 4 and 7. They can also go right into the plastics recycling bin! The materials will be further sorted at municipal recycling facilities.

Ice packs: the gel can be poured down the sink with water and the pack recycled in the plastics recycling bin
  • The gel inside the cold packs we use to keep the mist cool can be poured down the sink with plenty of water. They are made with cellulose thickener (made from wood pulp) which is biodegradable and/or compostable.
  • The packs themselves are mixed polymer fibres, similar to the insulated mailers (in this case mixed high density and low density polyethylene non-wovens). They can also be tossed into the recycling bin (and are not compostable or biodegradable).
