When you log in, you'll be taken to a page that shows past orders and the addresses associated with your account. This is helpful for knowing what you've ordered but is NOT where you update your address or billing information for the club. To get to the page where you can update your information, click "Manage Subscription."
After you've navigated to the manage your subscription page, you will have the options to add the Ice Pack + Recyclable Insulated Box from the red carousel at the top of the subscriptions page.
Click the + button and choose whether you'd like it to be added to next order only or your entire subscription from June-August.
After confirming your choice you're good to go for the summer months!
We will reset the shipping options in September, so no action will be needed to revert back to standard shipping!
What packaging are we using?
InsulShield boxes which are made from 97% renewable corrugated board.
This alternative to foam is engineered to keep wine safe for 72 hours, exceeding the performance of EPS foam while greatly reducing the environmental impact and consumer inconvenience of foam packaging disposal.
InsulShield compared to EPS Foam, per 1,000 packages
74% reduction in net greenhouse gas emissions, equal to 5.28 thousand miles of car travel
82% reduction in water consumption, the equivalent of 2.18 thousand buckets of water
63% reduction in cumulative energy demand, enough to power 256.59 houses for a day
51% reduction in fossil fuel emissions, equal to 2.76 thousand miles of car travel
69% reduction in solid waste, enough to fill 12.72 household wheeled garbage bins
Drain-safe ice packs
Nordic Drain Safe gel packs are durable, reusable, and long-lasting poly gel packs. These packs offer the same performance as traditional gel packs with the added benefit of being 100% safe for disposal in a household drain. These are safely processed within municipal wastewater or home septic systems.
How to recycle your InsulShield box
With just a little effort, your box and any silver-lined inserts are curbside recyclable. Follow these simple steps and feel good about doing your part to keep our environment healthy and happy.
HOW TO RECYCLE THIS BOX
1. Empty your box of its content
2. Open the bottom flaps
3. Rip or safely cut open the box along a corner or seam.
4. Lay the box flat with the silver lining facing up.
5. Peel the silver lining off and discard. Note: For easy peeling, start at any edge and tear a notch downward. The silver lining will separate from the board. You can then slowly peel the silver sheet away.
6. Recycle the box as usual. Note: It is acceptable for a small amount (10% or less) of silver lining to stay adhered and should not affect recyclability.
