ThermoPod Introduces the First and Only Earth Friendly Chilled Wine Shippers With Biodegradable Components


Date: 05/03/12

ThermoPod introduces super insulated temperature control and protective ThermoKeeperT Chilled Wine Shipper. ThermoKeeper Chilled Wine Shippers maintain an ideal temperature range for shipping and permit year round global shipments or transportation. The Wine Shipper is made with components that are completely biodegradable, making it a smart "green" alternative to foam coolers and other non bio-degradable shipping containers.

The inner surface of the insulated liner is perforated to allow for the absorption of unwanted condensation or accidental spills, protecting the bottle labels. Sandwiched between the biodegradable films, and sealed on all sides, is a super insulating pad made from recycled purified flocked cotton, to which super-absorbent fibers and antimicrobial powders have been added during manufacture. A unique cooling chamber allows for adjustable amounts of gel pack refrigerants to control temperature requirements. The shipping system folds together and is compressed to ship flat for lower in-bound freight costs and efficient warehouse storage.

When ready for use, ThermoKeeper Chilled Wine Shipper insulating liners easily assemble into an air-tight, stand-up cooling chamber with a full flap-over lid to fit snuggly inside the shipping box. The built-in handle enables easy carrying or can be folded flat for shipping. The container can be re-used. After multiple uses, the entire unit can be disposed of in an eco-friendly fashion.

Available in 4-bottle and 6-bottle sizes, the Wine Shipper is an innovative and effective eco-friendly shipping option for wineries interested in reducing their environmental impact and, in turn, satisfying customer interest in reducing their carbon footprint with truly sustainable packaging. The Wine Shipper is also ideal as a customer chilled carry-out at local wineries.

ThermoPod also offers a variety of other biodegradable products for temperature control and protection, including insulated envelopes and box liners, Pie and Cake Shippers, and Pallet Covers.
