Shopping with The Caviar Co. means shopping sustainably.  Through years of efforts, regulations have been set by the U.S Government to protect the wild population of sturgeon species. Today, farms worldwide have adopted aquaculture practices to raise sturgeon broodstock sustainably and utilize 80% of the fish when harvested.

As proud as we are to work with these sustainable farms, our environmental efforts do not end there. We have created a thoughtful cascade of sustainable fulfillment practices from farm to table, utilizing recyclable shipping boxes and compostable packaging. Now you can enjoy one of Earth’s finest delicacies with a good conscience. Please follow the steps below to recycle your caviar packaging properly.

Breaking down our shipping box:

Each shipment is packed in a recyclable box with insulated liners to ensure your package arrives cool. Now that you have received your caviar package and refrigerated its contents remove the insulated liners and simply break down the box and place it in your weekly recycling. Cut open the liner to reveal the mineral-based fiber. The contents of our liners help keep your caviar cool in transit and are 100% compostable. Compost this inner material and dispose of the outer wrapper. 

If you are planning to bring your caviar to a party or gathering, save our shipping box and transport your caviar in it! The caviar will last 48 hours in our shipping box with frozen ice packs.

Reuse and recycle our ice packs:

Our ice packs not only keep your caviar at its optimal temperature maintaining its freshness but can be reused and disposed of sustainably. Like our shipping liners, you will want to cut open the ice pack and recycle the wrapper. The inside gel is made from non-toxic, biodegradable material and can be buried next to your plants for time-releasing watering.

Repurpose our caviar jars:

Our caviar jars and tins are recyclable but can also be reused in a number of ways. Some ways to reuse our jars include: storing jewelry, making candles, and they are the perfect size to hold any liquids and lotions for travel. The list goes on! Show us how you reuse your caviar jars and tag us @thecaviarco.

Our farmed caviar comes from sustainable farms:

Most caviar these days are sustainably farmed, but what does that mean?

  1. Farms are raising their own broodstock and not taking any sturgeon from the wild.
  2. 80% of the sturgeon is used, from the eggs all the way to the meat and skin. The meat is sent to Europe,and the skin is exported to make leather products. Sturgeon are very different from Salmon. Did you know that only up to 40% of Salmon can be used?
