I left some of the wool liner on our verandah. The birds are now coming every day to take it to make nests for the spring. How cool is that?!

Greer says:

This made our day Dorothy! Very cool indeed.

Diane says:

I have left some out for a magpie pair because I saw them pulling out the coconut coir from my hanging baskets. Hope they make use of it.

Juliette Russell says:

Hi I have been using my wool liner as a garden weed mat it seems to work well and degrades at the same rate as the bark I put on top.

Also want to comment that i am generally not happy about the recycling of Hello fresh packaging. Previously we were able to recycle the boxes and freezer packs. Happy to use the wool in the garden but there is only a limited amount you can use. I think you need to relook at your packaging.

Diane Coghlan says:

The wool insulation makes a great top layer on my worm farm. It retains plenty of moisture so keeps the worms damp and insulated from temperature extremes. I will be interested to see if, when it rots down, the worms use it.

Lynne says:

Another use for the wool insulation is to line wire hanging baskets.Works a treat.

Stewart says:

Love the comments about the wool liners.
My experience with a kitchen compost bin is to ensure it is enamelled. This seems to prevent odours for some reason. We use a repurposed kitchen fat collector.

Sonja says:

I haven’t done it yet but I’m going to use the wool liner to put strawberry plants in – sure beats the black plastic I see commercial growers using!

Deborah says:

Did you know that other natural fibres can be composted? Cotton, wool, silk, bamboo etc. I always put my old cotton undies and hubby’s work shorts in the worm farm. All that is left behind are the synthetic parts i.e. elastic, stitching (fully intact), zips, buttons etc. I put them in whole, but if composting in a compost heap they should be cut into small pieces.

Dale Chapple says:

Worm farm is easy and saves a lot of rubbish. Creates good soil and liquid natural fertiliser.

Rod Coleman says:

Very information post about composting! Yes I agree that “composting is great for the herb garden or other veggies”

Kim says:

I’m curious to know how long you expect it to take for the insulation to break down?

Michael says:

Hi Your Cool Pouch with corn icon You say these pouches are made from plant based and renewable materials. Can I place them in my worm farm, if so why aren’t they in the list above

Hi Hello Fresh, Our order has not arrived today. This was to be our second delivery. On our first delivery last week I recieved a text message the morning of the delivery advising of an approximate delivery time. I did not receive any text message today. I waited until 6:30pm tonight and called up to find that apparently our order was saying ‘on hold’ at your end.
I received a text on Thursday last week asking me to contact you as the courier was having trouble locating the address for todays delivery on the GPS. I did that straight away as soon as the text message came through. Your staff member added notes and assured me this was completed. Its now 8:30pm, we’ve had to order takeaway pizza get our children fed and we have no idea what is happening with our delivery. Not overly happy given this is only our second delivery.

Maryanne Rees says:

Hi Team,
I went to make dinner tonight, Chinese Garlic Beef & Snow peas and I found the snow peas were mouldy inside the bag. The zucchini was also turning. I took photos if you’d like to see them.
I also had two mouldy potatoes with this order which is very disappointing!
Up until this point I have been happy with the quality of produce we have been receiving from Hello Fresh. Over the past month since I began ordering Hello Fresh, I have only every encountered one item (a mouldy capsicum) that wasn’t useable.
Still, given that my delivery day is Sunday, and I went to use the potatoes on the Monday and the Snow Peas and Zucchini on the Wednesday, I believe this is completely unacceptable.

Gidg Zealand says:

Hello Fresh
You site has great photos , is bright and attractive but useless when if come to replies on the support site. I just wanted to buy a gift card. The gift card site popped up and disappreared intantly. Tryed going to your HELPcentre I kept getting responsed that in no responded to what I was asking. Very frustated. Might just go and make up a box myself.

Susan Johnson says:

First delivery today. Creating first meal of honey soy glazed chicken and sesame fries.
No snow peas in the pack, there was a Lebanese cucumber which my partner hates. So not a good start.

Suzie says:

Why are we using pineapple from thailand. We should be supporting australIan produce and australian farmers. If its not in season dont use that ingredient make food thats in season.. not happy!!!

Donna says:

I’ve been receiving HelloFresh for quite a few years now and have been happy with the meals.
I have to ask WHY have you chosen to put the sour cream, mayonnaise, yogurt etc into plastic non resealable bags. They are difficult and messy to get all the contents out and reseal if you don’t use all of the ingredient at once. The cream and yogurt tastes a bit like plastic.
I liked the small tubs better and at times have recycled them, they stack better in the fridge too.
In my opinion I don’t think this was a wise move. Does anyone else agree with me?

Rosalyn says:

Wonderful web site. Plenty of useful info here. I¡¦m sending it to some friends ans additionally sharing in delicious. And certainly, thanks for your sweat!

Rogis says:

I would like to eat plant based meals most of the time. I now have a wonderful collection of recipes from the year i have been using your services. However there are now only two plant based options this week so i have to buy at least one meal that contains meat or fish.
If i was a vegetarian i would have to stop using your services.

There are many menus that could be either vegetarian or meat based. Just substitute beans, tofu, mushrooms or eggplant and allow customers to choose the vegetarian option.

Karen says:

Begeatables need to be fresher but variety good.

Glenis Hutton says:

There has been a big hiccup in our delivery which was to happen between 10am and 1pm today sat 18th Jan 2020

Tracey says:

Would love to see a few more low calorie dishes on offer per week. Apart from that the meals have all been lovely, fresh and tasty
