Recommendations
This Paper Cooler is a fully curbside-recyclable, 100% paper-based container for shipping temperature sensitive products and is an environmentally preferable alternative to expanded polystyrene (EPS) coolers.

• Fully recyclable alongside other paper and corrugated box materials
• Eliminates difficult-to-recycle EPS waste, reducing disposal issues
• Intended for overnight shipments

Easier on the environment
This 100% paper alternative to EPS coolers has a cardboard framework lined with perforated layers of paper insulation and is fully curbside-recyclable in normal paper and corrugated cardboard recycling streams. Corrugated packaging is the most widely recycled material in the United States, with a 93% recovery rate. EPS is not readily recyclable, accumulates in landfills, and often ends up littering oceans, waterways, and highways. Though EPS itself is unreactive, compounds used in the production of EPS have been identified as harmful to human health.

Proven performance
The Paper Cooler has been used successfully to ship more than 1,000,000 temperature-sensitive product orders, serving the research needs of life science customers. The Paper Cooler's performance depends on various factors, including the type and amount of coolant used and the item being shipped. Temperature specifications are determined by the user based on shipping condition qualification needs and requirements.
