Eco-friendly Thermal Pie and Cake Shippers can deliver happy holidays

MP Global Thermal Packaging Products’ styrene-free ultra-insulated Thermal Pie and Cake Shippers offer online sellers of fresh and frozen pies and cakes an eco-aware way to deliver payload to mail-order clients interested in helping preserve the environment.

Cotton-enhanced insulating materials used in the Pie/Cake Shipper provide soft cushioning and thermal protection. The insulating cotton padding is produced using a select blend of recycled flocked cotton fibers that are super-absorbent for the containment of undesirable condensation or accidental spills and contain a time-sensitive, EPA-approved antimicrobial additive for cross-contamination prevention. This combination, when used with gel packs or other refrigerant, provides the superior thermal protection necessary for temperature control during shipments.

Two-part insulation liners are reversible to allow for frozen shipments using dry ice film on one side or perforated film for refrigerated shipments that use frozen gel packs that often condensate while thawing. Tiny perforations in the film will allow spills or unwanted condensation from gel packs to be wicked away from product and absorbed into the insulation fibers. This process is boosted by the addition of super-absorbent fibers bonded to the textile fibers during the thermal sterilization process in manufacturing.

Cotton materials are completely aerobic and anaerobically biodegradable in less than one year when in the presence of active microorganisms as verified by ASTM D-6400 biodisintegration testing. Non-woven cotton insulation fibers in the packaging liners are considered compostable and comply with current FTC 2013 Green guidelines. The protective poly film contains a special additive designed to attract microbes and thus stimulate biodegradation to occur in greater than a year. Given that careful composition, the packaging, post-use, can be disposed as ordinary trash.

The Thermal Pie and Cake Shipper is available in standard 13" x 13" x 8" size. At no additional cost, it can be custom-sized to fit snugly inside existing shipping containers, saving space on pallets and shelves and minimizing shipping costs.
