IT’S COOLER GOING GREEN
At Igloo, our lasting impact should be on your enjoyment, not on the planet. So, we’re taking big steps to become the most environmentally friendly cooler company on Earth.
THE WORLD’S FIRST HARDSIDE COOLERS MADE WITH RECYCLED PLASTIC
With our ECOCOOL collection we’re headed down even greener pastures — and with our NEW ECOCOOL Trailmate, we’re doing it on all-terrain wheels! This cooler collection is the first of its kind to be made with recycled resin. That means we’re taking post-consumer plastic — mostly discarded plastic yogurt cups and milk jugs — that would otherwise end up in landfills throughout the world and transforming it into a recycled resin used in the outside body, liner and lid of our ECOCOOL coolers, all made at our facility in the USA.

COOLERS THAT MAKE EARTH HAPPY
We’re continuously growing our collection of coolers to be more sustainable through the use of different (and really awesome) innovations, like repurposing tossed-out plastic into new materials. By utilizing recycled plastic in our production, we’re significantly cutting back on greenhouse gas emissions and saving up to 88% of energy compared to utilizing virgin plastics.
OUR MOST ECO-FRIENDLY & CONVENIENT COOLER BAGS
Our lightweight Packable Puffer coolers bags are made with recycled plastic bottles from the inside out: PrimaLoft® insulation + REPREVE® exterior. With a fully scrunchable, compressible construction, this genius cooler design folds into its own front pocket for ultimate packability. All this and the Packable Puffer still provides long-lasting ice retention!Shop Packable Puffers
PLASTIC BOTTLES TURNED COOLER BAGS
With our collection of coolers made with REPREVE — from lunch bags and a backpack to Packable Puffers and our FUNdamentals™ collection — we’re transforming recycled plastic bottles into cooler bags that’ll make your lunch or next outing more enjoyable. By the end of 2022, our REPREVE collection will have diverted over 7.4 million plastic bottles from the landfill or ocean!Shop Now
THE WORLD’S FIRST 100% BIODEGRADABLE COOLER
100% biodegradable, compostable and recyclable, RECOOL helps eliminate the need for those harmful, single-use polystyrene foam coolers that had once been so commonplace. Since we released RECOOL in 2019, it’s gone on to receive eight innovation awards, and with more than 575,000 sold to date, that’s more than half a million less squeaky foam coolers polluting our environment.Shop Now Learn More
MAKING GREAT PROGRESS WITH ECO INNOVATIONS
BETTER-FOR-THE-PLANET THERMECOOL™ INSULATION
100% of the hardside coolers we manufacture in the USA include THERMECOOL insulation. This innovative foam lowers CO2 and VOC emissions making it 50 times better for the planet than the law requires (compared to traditional foam insulation) while still providing advanced ice retention. With THERMECOOL, we’re lowering our environmental impact while creating coolers that can last a lifetime.

FEEL GOOD ABOUT HOW YOU COOL
REPREVE is the leading, most trusted branded performance fiber made from recycled materials.
The process: Used plastic bottles are recycled, washed and chopped into flakes. The flakes are then melted and formed into a chip. From there, the chip is transformed into recycled yarn used in the exterior material of our REPREVE softside coolers.
Each of our REPREVE coolers repurposes 1–19 plastic bottles that would’ve otherwise ended up in the landfill or ocean.
REPREVE fibers are traceable and certified, so we can easily track where our raw materials come from and guarantee accurate reporting.
LIGHTWEIGHT INSULATION. LIGHTER IMPACT.
PrimaLoft Gold is a high-performance, synthetic insulation that’s lightweight, durable, compressible and made with 90% recycled content.
PrimaLoft insulation is created by diverting plastic bottles from landfills, then cleaning and shredding the bottles into chips and transforming the chips into PrimaLoft fibers.
Our cooler bags featuring PrimaLoft Gold Insulation are easily scrunchable, making them easy to pack away when you’re not using them.
BUILDING A BETTER TOMORROW WITH OUR ECO-MINDED PARTNERS
In addition to our own environmental efforts, we’re committed to supporting organizations that are effectively improving communities and public lands far and wide.
