We are now one step closer to ditching harmful polystyrene products thanks to this new cooler than is made entirely out of biodegradable materials.

Up until now, polystyrene – more commonly known as “styrofoam” – has been a popular material for disposable coolers, but it is quickly being eliminated from product supply chains because of how toxic it is for people and the environment.

That’s why cooler company Igloo has just released the “RECOOL”, a biodegradable container which they are calling the “world’s first eco-sensitive cooler”.

The container, which is made out of paraffin wax and recycled tree pulp, can hold up to 75 pounds of weight and retain ice for 12 hours. Additionally, it can go up to five days without leaking water. After that, it can either be recycled or dried out for reuse.

The RECOOL is currently being sold for $10 a pop on the Igloo and REI websites.
