Choo-it is conscious of the earth and the impact we have on it. We are researching green packaging, terra-cycling and recycling programs. The 1230g container makes great storage for baking, kids supplies, or use in the house or garage. I have my used containers to hold baking flour, cookies, and my son's markers. (Just don't try dishwash on hot as it will melt!) Both the bag and container are recyclable so if you choose to get rid of them just place them in your blue bin or drop off at any recycling center.
