How Does Sustainable Packaging Work?

Sustainable packaging uses environmentally friendly materials to create sturdy, reliable packaging structures. To minimize the environmental impact and footprint, these solutions sustainably source and develop packaging from reusable materials and alternatives to options that don’t easily break down after disposal. At SourcePak, we can work with diverse industry requirements to create sustainable shipping solutions that match your precise specifications and ensure quality packaging for your products.

Our New Green Thermal Packaging Solutions

Innovation and sustainability are driving values at SourcePak. That’s why we are proud to introduce our latest green packaging solutions — environmentally friendly gel packs and green foam boxes.

What Is Green Thermal Packaging?

Green thermal packaging consists of an outer cardboard box with an inner core designed to provide insulation for temperature-sensitive goods. These items typically combine with cooling gel packs for extra protection.

In the past, these boxes contained expanded polystyrene (EPS). This material poses recycling challenges and contributes extensively to environmental pollution. We have developed a better solution for the EPS and gel packs that used to go to landfills — Nordic Drain Safe®.

Our Nordic Drain Safe® gel packs are the products of years of research and development. They contain an exclusive formula that is 100% drain safe and non-toxic — the only product of its kind on the market today. Plus, Nordic Drain Safe® delivers the same levels of superior thermal resistance, quality and environmental stewardship you’ve come to expect from SourcePak and our traditional Nordic Ice® gel packs.


Green Thermal Packaging Benefits

These sustainable fulfillment components offer customers advantages like:

  • Curbside recyclability of box inserts: Comply with styrofoam bans already in effect and prepare for phased implementation in several states. Our green thermal packaging box inserts are the only curbside-recyclable solution in the country.
  • Fully recyclable gel packs: Users can wash the inner contents down the drain after receiving their package. The outer plastic is also 100% curbside-recyclable.
  • Support for a circular economy: Eliminate yesterday’s linear “make-take-waste” models while improving the environment. SourcePak manufactures these from plastic bottles cleaned from the ocean floor.
  • A carbon-neutral alternative: Show your customers you’re committed to healthier water, air and climates. These solutions are entirely carbon-neutral.
  • Waste reduction: Decrease the amount of trash that hits the landfill. Nordic Drain Safe® is a waste-free product responsible for eliminating approximately 150 million pounds of trash in 2021.

Ideal Applications for Green Thermal Packaging

SourcePak’s green thermal packaging is ideal for uses in the cold product supply chain like:

  • Healthcare: Transport biological samples with sustainable and environmentally friendly temperature-controlled packaging.
  • Pharmaceuticals: Protect valuable and life-saving medications and ensure their effectiveness throughout their journeys to pharmacies or patients’ doorsteps.
  • Meal delivery services: Ensure perishable ingredients arrive intact with long-lasting Nordic Drain Safe®.
  • Direct-to-consumer food shipments: Safeguard meats, cheeses, candies, fresh produce and other foods with a carbon-neutral product that customers value.
  • Beverage services: Deliver prized wine at just the right temperature while enjoying peace of mind that you’re controlling excess waste.
