Albertsons’ pharmacies to adopt TemperPack's ClimaCell packaging

By Sandra Levy - 02/14/2019
Albertsons is reducing its environmental footprint, by swapping out traditional styrofoam coolers in its pharmacy shipments and switching to TemperPack's paper-based insulator, ClimaCell.

ClimaCell enables companies to protect temperature-sensitive shipments for up to 80 hours while significantly reducing packaging waste, according to the company.

Albertsons will begin shipping the new packaging to nearly 50,000 specialty care patients, physician offices, and clients later this month, with a full rollout expected over the next year.

By switching to ClimaCell, Albertsons said it expects to divert up to 75,000 pounds of packaging from the landfill every year.

"We are thrilled to partner with Albertsons’ pharmacies to assist in reducing the environmental impact of their packaging," TemperPack senior vice president of sales, Rob Hazelton said. "As one of the most highly respected industry and consumer brands, Albertsons move to ClimaCell leads the way for other pharmacy and life science companies to switch without sacrificing the efficacy of their temperature-sensitive products."

"We couldn't be more excited to be the first retailer to make the move from styrofoam to ClimaCell,"Albertsons specialty care director Erin Shaal said. "We are proud to have a 100% curb-side recyclable product in our packaging portfolio and know it will benefit our customers and our planet."
