gel ice packs sustainability environment


The ability to conserve and protect valuable resources as well as reduce CO2 emissions are important environmental concerns. Today more than ever, it’s vital to consider the effects the shipping of food products can impose environmentally. This goal is not new for Cold Ice Inc., for over 40 years the company has made sustainable cold chain products a priority. When choosing the best gel ice refrigerant, Cold Ice does not believe in compromising sustainability or performance. 

Plant-based gel refrigerants do exist, and perform better than less sustainable alternatives

Many companies who utilize cold chain products fail to recognize how shipping materials impact their carbon footprint. Choosing biodegradable, reusable and recyclable products is essential. Additionally, Cold Ice plant-based gel outperforms both traditional, chemically made gel refrigerants and other “eco-friendly” alternatives.

What Sets Cold Ice Apart

Not all cold chain products are created equally. The unique gel found in Cold Ice is that of a true gel, meaning its contents won’t leak and it maintains shape in transit. This ensures products stay colder longer. Cold Ice is trusted globally by both food distributors and the medical community, industries whose perishables are reliant on the performance of cold chain.

The Cold Ice gel is comprised of organic, G.R.A.S. listed, biodegradable, Non-GMO, plant-based ingredients and is completely non-toxic. These features make Cold Ice the standard for sustainable cold chain shipping practices.

Reusable over “Drain Friendly”

Cold Ice is a completely reusable gel pack. Its quality and durability makes it so they are intended for reuse, and customers prefer this option.

“Drain packs” are often made of lesser quality chemicals that require fast disposal due to leakage. If someone did wish to cut open a Cold Ice pack, the gel can be utilized as time release watering for plants. Just cut open the pack and bury it in the soil next to your plant. When the water is completely absorbed, only a small amount of organic material will remain.

It’s time to commit to better, sustainable shipping

As the world’s demand for cold chain product continues to grow, it’s important to seek out the most cost efficient, sustainable packaging solutions.
