Living Green With Jerinda Giveaway: TerraCycle Olivet Cooler [CLOSED]

green product reviewsI have long been a fan of TerraCycle and their commitment to upcycling things that would otherwise be waste and recently I was given the opportunity to test out an upcycled lunch cooler from them. This is not the first TerraCycle review I’ve done, as a few months ago I reviewed an eco-friendly boombox, which we still use and love.

The Olivet Cooler lives up to Terracycle’s reputation, undoubtedly. This insulated cooler features a hard, plastic shell liner that keeps the lunch box sturdy and prevents it being smashed through the day. My 9 year old, Avery, has been using this lunch box a couple times a week, alternating with his PlanetBox, and really likes how big and roomy it is and that no one can crush it, himself included.


The interior of this lunch box is made from over 90% waste packing material and the rest is co-polymers. The outer is partially made from upcycled Frito Lay chip bags. We really like this lunch cooler and its features which include a separate zipping top compartment, very large bottom compartment, crush-proof liner, front pocket for utensils/napkins, and very long handle for easy transporting. It is very well made as well and should last us for a while.


You can learn more about TerraCycle on their website, TerraCycle.net. TerraCycle is now working with DwellSmart.com and they are now a major retailer of TerraCycle products.
