Famous cooler company Igloo designed a cooler completely made out of biodegradable material. Called the Recool, this cooler begins to decompose within 3 months. A lot shorter time frame than styrofoam: 500,000 years. That is just an average.
Money flows whether we care about the environment or not. Who knows where all the styrofoam containers are around the world being disposed of. Maybe they are in the ocean floating or on a beach baking.
The environmental conditions of the styrofoam change how long it takes to biodegrade. More sun with a little water causes it to break down faster, while more water and less sun cause it to stay formed. Either way, it’s far cheaper to know where it is than have to find it later.
Recool by Igloo makes that possible. You decided where you dump it. If you want it will be in the backyard. Your Recool purchase would be feeding your environment rather than killing species with styrofoam. Teams will have fewer days of working on the oceans to keep it clean & can focus on other jobs and tasks that the employees care about. Money is saved and used towards other things, some as small as providing nutrients to your garden.
Biodegradable materials have a shorter shelf life than hard plastics so the reuse on this is not the same as a regular Igloo. If you want to care for your Igloo, keep this purchase for practically ever, buy a regular Igloo. All of their products are reusable, besides their Recool decomposable coolers. You can use the Recool for a while. Air-dry and make sure not to leave water in for more than five days. After 5 days the water retention might break so air drying most likely won’t make it waterproof anymore.
