LIVERMORE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/FoamFree?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#FoamFreelt;/agt;–The world’s first 100% recyclable and biodegradable beach, camping,
tailgating, BBQ, recreational, vacation and picnic family cooler to
replace the foam cooler that we have all known for past 40+ years has
hit the market: the patented and multi-patent pending Ohana Cooler™,
designed by Vericool, Inc.


Ohana Coolers™ were first showcased at the 2018 Chicago Packaging Expo
with much fanfare. The first patent applications were filed in February
2017; Vericool, Inc. was awarded the first patent in August 2018 and has
multiple continuances. Using 100% post-consumer paper waste, Vericool is
turning trash into a sustainable environmentally-friendly product that
eliminates the harmful impact of foam on our marine wildlife and
environment.

The company is putting the planet before profits by launching its first
10,000 quantity 18-quart family size Ohana Coolers™ at $4.99EA & 3-Packs
for $13.99; the cooler will later retail in stores for $7.99. The first
5,000 quantity multi-family 42-quart Ohana Cooler™ will launch at
$7.99EA & 3-Packs for $22.99 and will later retail in stores. Ohana
Coolers™ are multi-use reusable coolers that can hold water for up to
30+ days; the largest Ohana Coolers™ can hold up to 100 lbs.

This revolutionary patented and multi-patent pending Ohana Cooler™ was
invented two years ago when CEO Darrell Jobe visited the island of Maui.
He was with his family visiting a good friend of his from the island,
local kayak fishing legend Capt. Jon Jon who owns and operates Local
Fishing Knowledge. Jobe understood that the people of Maui have been
working to ban Styrofoam® and he wanted to support the locals
in their efforts. It was in Maui that he invented the world’s first
truly sustainable foam-cooler replacement. Jobe named the cooler the
Ohana Cooler™, paying homage to the Hawaiian culture for always putting
family, or ‘Ohana,’ in Hawaiian, first.

“Forget coolers made from Styrofoam – or those other so-called
sustainable coolers that aren’t recyclable,” said Darrell Jobe, CEO and
founder of Vericool, Inc. and inventor of the Ohana Cooler™. “I’m on a
personal mission to end the use of EPS and to turn this industry upside
down. That’s why I’m putting the planet before profits.”

Sustainable packaging innovator Vericool, Inc. engineered the
recyclable, biodegradable, and reusable Ohana Cooler for consumers who
care about sustainability; the company will donate a portion of the
proceeds from the sale of the consumer coolers to organizations that
protect marine life and work to rehabilitate the coasts and oceans of
the Hawaiian Islands. Vericool is committed to ending the use of
expanded polystyrene (EPS) and is looking for celebrities, professional
athletes and environmentalists to help join the #FoamFree movement.

Marine life and animals mistake foam for food and starve to death.
Choosing sustainable Vericoolers® helps to prevent the
landfill, ocean and waterway waste that comes with use of EPS (commonly
referred to as Styrofoam®) coolers, which are difficult to
recycle and may never decompose, according to experts.

for the presale offer and to join the #FoamFree pledge.

As part of its environmental focus, Vericool has developed a licensing
program for large manufacturers, distributors and resellers of rigid
coolers, specifically targeting the Hawaiian islands, island nations,
and other coastal areas that have enacted foam and single-use plastic
bans or that are hard hit by pollution from EPS. If you are interested
in the program, please contact info@vericoolpackaging.com.
