If you’ve been following The Coolector for some time now, you’ll definitely be aware of our penchant for coolers (given their craft beer cooling capacities) and we’re always in the market for the latest and greatest offerings in this space. Well, we’ve just found an absolute belter in the shape of this Wooly Eco-Friendly Cooler from Wool Street which is funding over on Kickstarter as we speak. If you’re partial to a backyard BBQ, beach trip or heading into the wild for some camping adventures, let us be the first to tell you that you need the Wooly in tow.
The Wool Street Wooly Eco-Friendly Cooler on Kickstarter is billed as the world’s first wool-insulated, recyclable cooler and it can be yours for the rather epic price of just $175 during the campaign which, if you’re a lover of bargains, you’ll be pleased to hear is some 41% off the intended final retail price for this classy cooler. There is an eco-friendliness to the wares from Wool Street who have set themselves on a mission to offer high-quality products that won’t end up in the landfill and the Wooly Eco-Friendly Cooler is their cornerstone release and looks set to take Kickstarter by storm.
Effortlessly Cool & Pleasingly Green
Each design element of The Wooly Eco-Friendly Cooler has been carefully considered with sustainability in mind. The housings and hardware are crafted from corrosion-resistant aluminium and stainless steel – both of which are materials that can be easily recycled. The cutting board and handles are also eco-friendly as they are made from bamboo, a renewable and natural material. The conventional polyurethane foam insulation that you’ll find in pretty much all hard coolers is replaced with natural compostable wool to ramp up the eco-friendliness of this cooler still further.
This patent-pending assembly of the Wool Street Wooly Eco-Friendly Cooler (from $175) differentiates it from every other cooler on the market. Naturally, the feature that makes this cooler stand out the most is its use of wool insulation. Wool has been used as an insulator for thousands of years and it is a natural, renewable, and biodegradable material that keeps its thermal performance for decades. During testing, Wool Street’s wool-insulated prototypes performed just as well as polyurethane foam-filled coolers with a similar wall thickness.
Chock full of fine features, the Wool Street Wooly Eco-friendly Cooler has got your back for whatever adventures you find yourself on. It has a cutting board built right into the cooler lid for users to chop and serve food and it opens with a tackle-box-style hinge that lets you open up the cooler mid-cut without having to remove anything on the cutting board beforehand. It is available in a natural aluminium and charcoal colourway and there is the intention to introduce more colour choices in the future. There is room for a substantial 78 cans of beer in the Wooly which is more than enough to keep the party going for hours. After a cooler that isn’t bad for the environment? Head on over to Kickstarter now and bag yours for a bargain price.
