The ice cells we use are the strongest, purest, cleanest and
safest Ice Packs available. The unique gel formula ensures they
stay frozen for much longer using an FSA & FDA approved
non-toxic polymer that is completely food safe. The gel is mixed
using highly purified water that has been through a 6 stage
filtration process and UV sterilisation.
We suggest you keep them in your freezer, they are perfect for
keeping things cold when you have a picnic or a bbq.
If you wish to safely dispose of them, simply cut open with a
pair of scissors and put the liquid inside into general waste. The
other packaging can go into the recycling bin.

use, are new to the market and are widely recyclable. They use 100%
recycled material in their production and can be recycled over and
over again, what is known as a circular product. Their natural
colour tones are derived from the 100% recycled materials they
produced from. This also means they are perfect for detection and
mechanically sorting. Simply wash them our once used and pop them
in your recycling bin.
All of the jars which we supply are wrapped in a protective
bubble wrap for protection during transport. The jars and metal
lids are all suitable recycling or reusing around the home, simply
