As e-commerce services continue to innovate and expand, more and more customers are receiving their medication, groceries, and treats in single use insulated packaging. Brand owners no longer want to pollute with EPS Styrofoam coolers piling up in the landfill. Exciting development in recyclable materials can now protect perishable items in the last-mile parcel delivery systems like UPS and FedEx from both unhealthy temperatures and breakage. Some products line the inside of a corrugate box to transform it in to a cooler. Others are padded envelopes packed with highly insulative memory foam or bubblewrap.
Cold-chain is a highly specialized niche dedicated to finding the best compromise between cost and efficacy. Only by understanding the science of materials, nature of recycling and composting profit motives, dimensional weight calculation and compliance requirements can a customer confidently utilize the right solution.
We must predict and avoid all potential crises before the product is used to ship anything. Exhaustive in-house and 3rd-party testing along with the most experienced minds in the business make sure the feedback from the marketplace is positive. No brand wants to have their end-user questioning their social responsibility. Build a trust that lasts.
We do everything we can to save our environment from laziness. Most manufacturers of EPS alternatives lay on thin ice of unchallenged greenwashing. Some utilize recycled denim content and tell end-users to toss it in the garbage, guilt free. They ignore the fact landfills are meant to prevent decomposition so there is little difference between EPS and a banana peel once it reaches the dump. We provide real green solutions supported by the existing profit-driven cycle.
