That's how you'll roll, with Lettuce.
Modern Day Packaging is Immensely Damaging . . .
. . . To individuals, cities, countries and the planet. There is simply no other way to say it.
It's piling up everywhere
Every time you buy food that is individually-wrapped, you are contributing to the mountains of plastic waste collecting on land and sea.
Even though recycling is more and more prevalent, it is not a perpetual cycle because the quality of the recycled material reduces with each round of processing.
This is Insane . . .
Everyone who’s used a national meal kit service has experienced the insane amounts of packaging they come in. Watch this video to see how incredibly wasteful and harmful all that packaging really is!
Manufacturing of Plastics is Polluting
From the effects of extraction of petroleum to refining, manufacturing and transportation of plastic containers – there is little in all of it that does not have a harmful impact on the environment.
So we asked:
'How can food be delivered in zero-waste packaging at mass scale?'
Our answer: The Milkman, technology enabled.
Back to the future.

Bravo for doing your part!
How it Works
It just fits . . .
. . . Right into your lifestyle. The only things ripped, cut, crushed, stuffed and melted, are the ingredients.
No one we know loves dealing with trash and recycling. Lettuce customers significantly reduce the level of trash and recycling they have to deal with.
Save Time . . .
With the conventional ways it takes time to find the right individually wrapped ingredients, among several others. With Lettuce, that’s a thing of the past – perfectly proportioned, in 1 container/recipe, ready to prepare and cook.
And Money . . .
At the store, when you buy something wrapped in throwaway packaging, you are paying not just for the food, but also the packaging – only to throw it away.
With Lettuce because we reuse containers over and over again, we pass the savings on to you – hence our slow prices.
It's Totally Safe!
Lettuce’s reusable containers go through a rigorous, efficient commercial-grade cleaning process that ensures that each container is as clean as new before every delivery.
Cleaning and reusing containers carry a significantly lower carbon footprint than recycling, or using throwaway packaging.
