Sustainable and Recyclable.
The world needs better solutions for the packaging
and transport of perishable products.
Chilltainers are the future of sustainable packaging.
Made from over 95% renewable fibre, they eliminate
the economic and environmental costs of polystyrene/EPS
saving money... and the planet!
Chilltainers are made from 95% sustainable paper and
are at least 86% recyclable in standard recycling.
Don't just take our word for it – the experts agree

Findings were supported by letters from APC and MRA expert recycling consultants in Australia

This product is no different from the vast array of cardboard and paper coatings, laminates, and wet strength cardboards that are continually processed in recycling mills. It provides high yields of fibre percentage which is the key determinant of paper mills.

The supporting materials analysis, independent recycling trial information, and resulting PREP analysis from APCO would support Chilltainers being accepted for recycling in Australia and therefore kerbside collection for MRF’s.
