With climate change and sustainability being a hot-button topic for consumers, Many businesses are looking for ways to make their processes as environmentally sustainable as possible. The process of shipping can be one of the most wasteful parts of a business, but it doesn’t have to be. In the last decade, sustainable shipping products have grown tremendously so that any business can incorporate them into their shipping logistics.
Sustainability is a challenge in shipping, but it can be a bigger challenge in cold chain shipping. Because these products require a specific temperature during the shipping process, each shipment can create more waste than products that don’t have to be shipped in a temperature-controlled setting.
On the upside, there are plenty of products that make it easier than ever to incorporate sustainability into your cold chain shipping logistics. For example, Nordic Drain Safe gel refrigerants are durable, reusable, and long-lasting. They are also a hundred percent safe for disposal in a household drain.
Nordic Cold Chain Solutions’ sustainable cotton shippers can be incorporated into your cold chain logistics plan as well. These shippers are ideal for food and pharmaceuticals that will stay in transit from one night to three days. The insulation is wrapped in white poly film that has additives to help it bio disintegrate within two years.
Finally, for 1- to 2-day shipments of medical samples, foods, and other perishables, Nordic Cold Chain Solutions offers a cotton, insulated mailer. It is ideal for ambient, refrigerated, and frozen temperatures, and it can save sipping space over rigid foam packing materials. These cotton insulated mailers are both reusable, recyclable, and biodegradable. Instituting sustainable shipping practices in your business will not only please customers but also be cost-effective for your business. Many sustainable products are reusable and easily incorporated into your existing shipping logistics
