Livermore CA – (October 11, 2018) Vericool Inc., creators of Vericoolers®, the premier recyclable and compostable coolers on the market, will unveil new sustainable product lines at the 2018 Pack Expo in Chicago from October 14-17. The company will showcase the new Ohana CoolerTM, a reusable and recyclable cooler for consumers, and the new Vericooler Plus®, a cooler with compostable thermal insulation.
The Ohana CoolerTM is a breakthrough in consumer coolers because it is affordable, durable, 100% reusable and is easily placed in curbside recycling. Offered as a 32-quart cooler, the Ohana meets the needs of environmentally-conscious consumers who want an affordable and sustainable alternative to EPS (commonly referred to as Styrofoam®) coolers for outings, boating, camping, and sporting events. Made from 100% post-consumer materials, the Ohana CoolerTM is able to hold up to 50 lbs of water and ice. What’s more, the Ohana CoolerTM is available in custom sizes for large-volume retailers that offer environmentally-friendly consumer product lines.
The Vericooler Plus® is designed specifically for the food delivery, specialty pharmaceutical, and health care industries; it is a recyclable cooler with compostable insulation that meets US ASTM D6400 and EN13432 and also industrial and home compost standards. Removal of the moisture barrier film allows this innovative plant-based insulation to dissolve in water. The Vericooler Plus’ innovative design replaces environmentally harmful plastic and foam insulation, as well as non-recyclable metalized bubble bags. The Vericooler Plus outperforms other ineffective “green” solutions, which provide very limited thermal protection. Not only does the Vericooler Plus outperform the competition, both environmentally and structurally, by providing temperature-customizable thermal protection, but it is cost-effective and lightweight, and is able to ship flat to customer site or fulfillment vendors.
“Vericool Inc is tackling the global plastic waste crisis, one cold-chain shipment at a time,” said Darrell Jobe, CEO and founder of Vericool, Inc. “Over the past year, our company has grown at breakneck speed, as more and more industries recognize that it is important to use sustainable Vericoolers® to keep their products cool from packaging to receipt—a recognition fueled by the growing environmental consciousness of consumers around the world.”
Jobe continued, “Communities, counties, states and entire countries are banning Styrofoam, in light of the devastating impact of single-use plastics and EPS on wildlife, waterways and coastal communities around the world. Consumers need a sustainable, environmentally-friendly cooler that they can take to the beach—they don’t want Styrofoam and they don’t want non-recyclable hard-sided coolers, either. The Vericool Ohana CoolerTM is the perfect solution: it is made from post-consumer materials, it’s reusable, it’s recyclable, and it won’t end up in a landfill.”
Vericool offers a range of high-performing, cost-effective and environmentally friendly Vericoolers and insulation that can easily be placed in either curbside recycling, industrial,home compost or dissolve in water. Choosing sustainable Vericoolers help to prevent the landfill, ocean and waterway waste that comes with use of EPS (commonly referred to as Styrofoam®) coolers, which are difficult to recycle and take at least five centuries to decompose, according to experts.
Vericool’s full line of Vericoolers will be on display at #PackExpo at Booth E-10144. To schedule a meeting with the Vericool team at the conference in Chicago, Illinois on October 14-17, please contact email@example.com.
