A Look Inside: Biodegradable Insulation

Posted by on

We are proud to be transitioning towards more sustainable shipping materials and incorporating biodegradable insulation into our shipping process. Our insulation is a compostable, biodegradable, eco-friendly packaging and insulation made from non-GMO corn. 

Green Cell Foam Disposal Process

1. Open your shipment of delicious Chocolate Covered Coconut Cookie Bites

2. Remove your cookies and ice pack from the box. Set your insulation panels aside. Cut and remove the film surrounding the insulation panels, recycle the film with other #4 or single stream plastics. Please note that not all of the insulation is covered with film. If yours does not have film, skip ahead to step 3.

3. Remove the panels and place into the sink basin. Run warm water over the insulation. The insulation will start to "melt" away under the warm water.

Our insulation is derived from corn starch and is safe for drains, septic systems and waste treatment centers. It is 100% compostable and will biodegrade in 60 days or less when in a moist soil environment. The insulation panels burn cleanly and safely.

Draining your Nordic Ice Pack

In order to drain your Nordic Ice Pack, cut the package and empty the melted contents into a sink. The packaging can be recycled once flushed with water. The pouch can be recycled anywhere number 4 plastics are accepted, making Nordic Ice gel packs recyclable.
