Summary: 4 Pines would like to produce a Cooler made in an environmentally sustainable way by challenging conventions and exploring how traditional ways of keeping beer and food cool in a Cooler can be innovatively achieved. 4 Pines has invited IPD-R from UTS to lead this initiative. The goal is to develop a Cooler using sustainable/recycled materials and that has a smaller carbon footprint compared to existing cooler products.
