In partnership with Parks Project, Igloo launched two special-edition Playmate coolers made with post-consumer recycled resin as part of its EcoCool Collection made with post-consumer recycled resin.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the custom-designed coolers will benefit the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) to help fund park conservancy projects in the U.S.
“As we were creating our EcoCool Collection of recycled hard-sided coolers, we knew aligning with Parks Project in support of their mission to protect and preserve parks nationwide would be an incredible way to give back to our public lands,” said Brian Garofalow, CMO, Igloo. “Our coolers go on every adventure with our consumers, and arguably, some of the most beautiful are within our national parks system. Through these Parks Project EcoCool Playmates, made in the USA with post-consumer recycled resin, we’re able to help fund the projects most important for the future of these parks.”
Igloo used recycled resin made from discarded plastic yogurt cups and milk jugs to create the Parks Project “Stickers” EcoCool Playmate Elite and Parks Project National Parks EcoCool Playmate Elite Post.
“Together, Igloo and Parks Project understand the importance of preserving our parklands while making time to enjoy all they have to offer,” said Parks Project CEO and Co-founder Keith Eshelman. “We’re hopeful this new cooler will inspire adventurers everywhere to seek out sustainable ways to leave the outdoors better than we found it.”
Parks Project’s mission is to protect and preserve parklands by educating, advocating, volunteering, and activating park supporters around the U.S. to get involved in conservation. To date, Parks Project has donated over $1 million to fund projects in parks.
These special-edition coolers offer 16-quart capacity fitting up to 30 12-ounce cans. For more product information, go here.
