HOLT, MI (August 20, 2019)—Green Cell Foam, the ground-breaking compostable packaging material, has been named the exclusive shipping insulation for Jenny Craig’s one-week delivery plans, as part of their ‘Jenny Craig Cares’ initiative. The weight loss company will incorporate Green Cell Foam in all of its one-week delivery options in order to reduce the amount of storage needed and waste produced with each order. BPI-certified Green Cell Foam is made from organic, non-GMO U.S.-grown corn and 100% safely water soluble, making it one of the most eco-friendly packaging materials in the world.

Through the use of Green Cell Foam, the Jenny Craig one-week delivery option is 30% smaller than before and offers a complete healthy meal plan including seven days’ worth of breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks that require minimal prep or planning time for today’s busy consumer. Members also have access to the Jenny Craig concierge team, providing white-glove service for online orders, hassle-free reordering, and the ability to connect with a dedicated consultant virtually. Integrating Green Cell Foam is an important part of the program as it gives customers unparalleled convenience in disposal:

  • Biodegrades in 60 days or less in a composting environment;

  • Dissolves in water, allowing small pieces to be placed in the sink that safely "melt" down the drain;

  • Can be placed in a bucket of water to sit overnight, creating an ideal plant food mixture;

  • Burns cleanly and safely in fireplaces, firepits and power plants, and can be used to start your barbecue; 

“We created Green Cell Foam to inspire significant change in the packaging and shipping industry, so we’re delighted to be part of Jenny Craig’s commitment to reducing waste and promoting a healthier ecosystem for our Earth. Our country disposes of 4.6 billion pounds of styrofoam each year, most of which is not, or cannot be, recycled. When companies such as Jenny Craig make the decision to use sustainable packaging, it makes a positive and significant impact on our environment,” commented Tim Colonnese, President and CEO of KTM Industries, creators and producers of Green Cell Foam.

“We recognize that today’s consumers seek brands that offer convenient, personalized and earth-friendly options, and we are committed to delivering all three. At Jenny Craig we seek to not only improve people’s lives but also improve the environment,” said Monty Sharma, Jenny Craig CEO and president.

ABOUT JENNY CRAIG

The Jenny Craig program is designed to provide structure and support to help members lose weight and learn how to keep it off. Jenny Craig's program provides nutritionally balanced menus, which include around 100 delicious entrees, desserts and snacks developed by dietitians, nutritionists, and professional chefs. One-on-one consultations provide personal support and education on portion control and strategies such as Fresh and Free Additions, which helps with satiety. Jenny Craig consultants work with each member individually to identify their strengths, challenges and personal goals in order to create unique weekly meal and activity plans that fit individual needs. Consultants also help members implement behavioral strategies to support their success. Jenny Craig's comprehensive approach to weight loss is available to members either in person, in centers or by phone.. The program is backed by hard science as demonstrated by a 2010 independent two-year clinical trial published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showing that participants on the Jenny Craig Classic program lost three times more weight than those participants dieting on their own. Jenny Craig, based in Carlsbad, California, is one of the world's largest weight loss and weight management companies, with approximately 500 company-owned and franchised locations in local neighborhoods in the United States and Canada, with approximately 600 centers worldwide.
