There are three types of coolers we can buy to keep our favorite beverages cold.Hard coolers made of plastic, soft side coolers made of cloth and waterproof “insulation” liner and disposable Styrofoam coolers.The first two are more costly and the Styrofoam, while cheap will get the job done if you just want to keep a couple of drinks cold, but they typically end up in landfills, where they will sit forever. Now, Igloo has an alternative that won't fill you with green guilt during your next trip to the beach.
It's called the Igloo RECOOL, the world's first eco-sensitive cooler made from recycled tree pulp and is 100% biodegradable. They only cost $10 each, and can be found exclusively at REI stores. These cool new “green” coolers are expected to be available everywhere later this summer.
Unlike any other EPS foam cooler, RECOOL can be reused over and over. Simply empty it, let it air dry and use it again. When you’re ready to go on another trip, you already have the perfect product to load up your favorite drinks and snacks and hit the road.
