Igloo has launched disposal Recool cooler which is one hundred percent biodegradable
Since ages, people have been using the disposable foam cooler for their cooling needs. Be it a barbecue in the woods or a trip to the Yellowstone; the foam cooler has got you covered. However, the cooler is disposable, which means that it’s almost always thrown away immediately after it has been used. It rots and degrades for years, polluting the environment ever so more. This is why the U.S. government in some states have banned the product altogether. But, this has paved way for a new product, which is introduced by Igloo as a cooler that is disposable, recyclable, and biodegradable. Now you can go green and still enjoy the benefits of the traditional disposable cooler.
Igloo has been a known name in the non-disposable cooler market. Now, it has made way into the disposable part of the market with its Recool cooler which, according to Igloo, is the world’s first completely biodegradable cooler. The Recool is made using recycled paper and wax, which makes it water-resistant and allows the retention of the coolness from the ice for approximately 12 hours. According to Igloo, the Recool can hold the melted water without leaking for up to five days.
While the traditional Styrofoam coolers would easily break and reduce to pieces, the Recool’s construction protects the cooler from crumbling easily and ensure your eatables stay cool and fresh. The most refreshing quality of the Recool is that it can be used multiple times, which immediately makes it more cost-effective than the regular one-off cooler.
The Recool has been launched just recently and is available at REI outlets across the US. It is priced at 10 USD for a 15 liter piece, which makes it more expensive than the usual cooler; however, the multi-use quality makes it worth the price and its biodegradability help ease the guilt if you’re into protecting the environment.
