Igloo Coolers sent Stay Blooming their new RECOOL cooler to try out. This is the first biodegradable cooler on the market and is made entirely of molded pulp in the USA. The intention of this cooler is to replace the styrofoam coolers that have been commonly used to keep food and drinks cold. The RECOOL cooler is water resistant, can hold water for up to 5 days, and can retain ice for up to 12 hours. The company even claims it can carry up to 75 pounds without breaking. After use, let it dry out and reuse. It is that simple.
The best part about this cooler is that it will biodegrade if it is littered or left out in the environment for a long time. Styrofoam is already being banned in many places, so finding a replacement for those picnics and BBQs will now be easier than ever before. We are in no way condoning in the behavior of littering but this is a necessary alternative to styrofoam and plastic.
As shown in the video above, they also sent over a reusable tote bag (of decent size), reusable bamboo cutlery, reusable bamboo plates, and a bamboo USB flash drive (plastic-free!). The reusable cutlery and bamboo plates can also be composted which is something to embrace about bamboo products. This is not a paid ad. Stay Blooming is here to learn and teach about alternatives so that we can truly welcome sustainable living.
If you are looking for a way to keep your perishables cool during picnics, BBQs, and other warm weather outings, be sure to grab one of these. It is reliable and there is no plastic to feel guilty about later.
