No one likes EPS Cooler Boxes, especially your customers!
By only utilizing truly recyclable materials such as ♳ PET sourced from water bottles, Thermal Shipping Solutions has created your next cold-chain product. The Renewliner is lightweight PET fiber, made from post-consumer plastic, and is recyclable—just like other common PET items. Any recycling system that accepts ♳ PET can recycle Renewliner.
The cold chain logistics market is increasingly crowded with so-called green alternatives that use organic fiber-based or foam-based insulation. Not only are these materials heavier than Renewliner, they are often packaged inside polyethylene plastic film—a material even the most progressive curbside recycling systems do not accept. Despite claims around compostability, there are no standards to test backyard composting while curbside municipal composting services are very rare.
While these alternatives are painted as eco-friendly, they strap consumers with a mix of materials and no clear directives on proper disposal.
The Renewliner Solution
The Renewliner is packed flat to save storage space. Simply push it into your box, pack and seal as normal. Your customer can toss the carton in the paper recycling bin and the Renewliner in the plastic recycling bin. Custom printing and sizing available.
Polyester (PET) Fiber
Sourced almost entirely (85 percent or more) from recycled bottles, PET fiber insulation is resilient, weighs virtually nothing, and is fully curb-side recyclable. It can be provided cut and custom-printed in whatever size you need, always taking up less room in delivery trucks and your valuable storage space.

Recycling is the solution to the green challenges facing shippers today. We use recycled PET to make Renewliner because recycled PET required around 70 precent less energy than virgin plastic—not to mention the savings from offsetting the need for virgin materials.
Utilizing post-consumer recycled and recyclable PET to manufacture insulation prevents waste, degradable or not, from filling our landfills.
We Need to Close the Loop
Modern landfills are designed to prevent decomposition because it produces harmful greenhouse gases like methane and carbon dioxide, as well as leachate, which pollutes ground water and soil.
While excavating an ancient Roman garbage dump, archeologists found 2,000-year-old organic material that had not fully decomposed. We still waste tremendous amounts of compostable material. More than a quarter of municipal solid waste sent to U.S. landfills is composed of paper. We are mummifying this for future archeologists. The food waste, yard waste and other compostable materials account for an additional 34 percent of landfills according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Landfills are meant to prevent decomposition. There is little difference between EPS and a banana peel or a burlap bag once it reaches the dump!
Recycling is the best and most responsible way to save the environment.
