ThermoPod Packaging Delivers To the Environment Twice Over


Date: 12/09/13

Dec. 9, 2013 - NORFOLK, Neb. -- Norfolk, Nebraska, USA, ThermoKeeper thermal protective packaging liners are specifically designed for temperature control and protection of mail order shipments of chocolates, smoked meat, seafood, pies and cakes, wine, cosmetics, pharma, pet meds and other temperature sensitive payloads. The patented cotton enhanced insulating materials used in all ThermoPod products offer soft cushioning thermal protection. The packaging, post-use, is disposable by the customer as ordinary household trash.

The insulating cotton padding is produced using a selected blend of recycled cotton fibers that are super-absorbent for the containment of spills and contain a time sensitive EPA-approved antimicrobial additive for cross-contamination prevention. The cotton materials are completely aerobic and anaerobically biodegradable in less than one year when in the presence of active microorganisms as verified by ASTM D-6400 biodisintegration testing.

The nonwoven cotton insulation fibers in the packaging liners are considered compostable and comply with current F.T.C’s 2013 Green guidelines. ThermoPod’s protective poly film contains a special additive that is designed to attract microbes and thus stimulate biodegradation to occur in greater than a year.

This unique combination provides the superior thermal protection necessary for extended controlled temperature time frames.

ThermoPod patented “super” insulated ThermoPod envelopes and ThermoKeeper box liners are available in variable thicknesses of ultra-insulating padding. The liners can be custom sized to fit snuggly inside existing shipping containers, saving space on pallets and shelves and minimizing shipping costs.
