Innovative and sustainable
The patented* Papercooler is made of 100% paper and has similar insulating and protecting features as the traditional EPS (Styrofoam / tempex) box. The corrugated cardboard carton is lined on the inside with a unique removable cardboard frame that is filled with several layers of waffled thin paper. This creates a strong insulating air barrier and ensures the right conditioned protection. After transport, the packaging is fully recyclable in the normal recycling streams of paper. This is a significant advantage relative to the EPS boxes: of these, the recycling options are still limited, so that EPS quickly ends up in the residual waste. An own employment facility that offers space to people with a distance to the job market, carries out the handling. This makes the Papercooler not only a sustainable choice, but also socially responsible.
