Ah summer! You pack up a cooler with all your favorite adult beverages and snacks and head out for a night with friends or family. You might have made your own snacks or potentially brewed your own beer, but that giant plastic cooler you keep things in? It's not exactly eco-friendly, is it? Here's an inexpensive alternative!Although this might look like a simple cardboard box with a bit of packing foam inside, it boasts a bit more. This box is made from 70% post consumer waste and can withstand the outdoor elements and be reused. It's inexpensive and easily takes the place of smaller coolers of equal size.
The only downfall we can see is the lack of a drainage hole like most coolers found at the store today, so make sure to dump out the melted bits to help it last a bit longer!
