Terra Ice™

The First, Only, Truly Compostable Gel Pack

Terra Ice™ is the only truly compostable gel pack. It consists of certified compostable materials per the American Society for Testing and Materials standard D6400. It offers the same performance as a regular gel pack, with a eutectic point of 32 F, but allows for easy, safe disposal thanks to its 100% biodegradable gel formula. It can turn into usable soil when composted or decompose fast when landfilled, leading to convenient and low-impact disposal.

No need to open the pouch or recycle Terra Ice™ gel packs. You and your customers can simply toss the gel pack into the trash, where it will gradually break down into organic components, or better yet, dispose of it through a municipal or industrial composting network, where it will turn into valuable soil.

Vortec Ice™

Sustainable AND Cost Effective

By our estimates, garbage trucks transporting the weight of one pallet’s worth of gel packs to the landfill generate 56 lbs. of CO2 emissions. Drain-safe gel packs divert the gel away from landfills and offer a cost-effective way to reduce the impact on greenhouse gas emissions.

If you’re seeking recyclable gel packs that are cost-effective and sustainable, Vortec Ice™ is the best choice. Our Vortec Ice gel packs contain a drain-safe gel, meaning you can cut the pouch corner and safely pour the gel down the drain. You can then recycle the pouch in the same way you recycle your plastic bags.

Vortec Ice™ packs are also septic-safe, allow for multiple uses and have a eutectic point of 32 F. For the most cost-effective and sustainable option, choose Vortec Ice™.
