“We are very proud to introduce the world’s first hardside coolers made with recycled plastic,” stated Dave Allen, CEO and President of Igloo. “We’ve had a series of industry firsts since Igloo was founded in 1947, so we’re happy to continue this tradition while also moving forward significantly in our mission to become the most environmentally friendly cooler company on Earth.”

With the initial production run of ECOCOOL, Igloo will utilize 58 tons (116,383 pounds) of recycled resin, which is equivalent to saving the landfill space of 10 football fields. From a 7-quart Little Playmate to a 90-quart roller cooler, the ECOCOOL collection ranges from $24.95–$99.95, is delivering to REI stores and REI.com now, and will be available on Igloocoolers.com April 22.

About Igloo:

Born from a modest metalworking shop back in 1947, Igloo has been instrumental in redefining how we live, work and play. What began with bringing clean water to the worksite quickly moved into super-functional, best-in-class ice chests. Igloo products made the family outdoor recreation movement of the 20th century possible. Suddenly, taking your kids camping on the weekend became easy and cross-country road trips became a summer vacation staple.

As we approach our next century, Igloo is 1,200 employees strong. We are proud to call—a 1.8-million-square-foot, three-building facility in—Katy, Texas home. With more than 500 products sold at thousands of retailers around the globe, we can confidently call ourselves the number one cooler manufacturer in the world.

And through it all we haven’t lost sight of our original goal—to create products that enable the pursuit of happiness (however you define it). That’s why we’re still working hard every day to innovate, create and make it easier for you to get out, work hard and play even harder.
