CAN MY PRANA PACKAGING BE PLACED IN THE RECYCLING BIN?
We’re right in the middle of switching to eco-friendlier packaging types - woot woot! While the transition is ongoing, it’s better to check every Prana product you have on hand and refer to the table below to know how to dispose of it properly. And if you’re interested, you can follow us on our exciting green packaging journey here!
Our plastic #7 pouches are not recyclable and should be disposed of in the trash (although we like to reuse them to store or freeze other food or items).

Some cities however are not equipped to process them; refer to your city’s recycling program to be sure (check useful links below). Alternatively, some provinces offer in-store drop-off bins.
YES and NO

RECYCLING PROGRAMS FROM COAST TO COAST
We’d love for you to type in your zip code here and get the correct information right away. Unfortunately, that’s not possible yet as recycling is managed different ways across the country. Most provinces and major cities have dedicated websites which we've linked below. But if you live in smaller cities in Alberta, Québec or Ontario, you’ll have to check your city’s official website.
