"Recyclable packaging"

Hi! I received my starter box today, but was disappointed to notice that the packaging does not seem to be recyclable, contrary to the claims on the website.
Both the bars and the powdered shakes came in (what looks to me like) aluminium-lined plastic, similar to chips bags, and with a recycle code of 7, that means they’re classified as “Other” plastics and not recyclable in the Netherlands.

So basically, huh? Why does it say recyclable packaging on the website, when it’s in fact not? I was really excited thinking that this was a far better environmental option than other powdered meals.

Picture to make my point:

Hi! Good point, it does seem a bit much to promote recyclable packaging when it’s cat 7 plastic. I have forwarded your comment to the marketing team and they agree, so we’ll take note of this for future promotions!

Thanks for looking out for us <3

Uf that is a harsh blow. I hope it is not only forwarded to marketing but to the packaging/engineering department so a recyclable packaging is found.
