How to Reuse
Don’t just throw away your KODIAKOTTON® natural fiber pads. There are many ways to repurpose them. Here are just a few exciting ideas:
The natural fiber pads can be used to make a pet bed. The material is soft and plyable. Your pet will love it. You can buy a cover for it, or make it yourself!
In flower beds, the natural fiber pads can be laid down as a barrier for weeds. Water and fertilizer can drain through the pad but weeds cannot come through.
While we use the natural fiber pads for thermal insulation, you can use them to cushion your household items on your next move.
Cotton, the main product in our natural fiber pads, can be an extremely soft filling for pillows.
If you have an area of lawn that you want to have a flower bed, place the natural fiber pad down. It will kill the grass and weeds for easy removal in just a few weeks.
How to Recycle
Every part of the KODIAKOTTON® natural fiber insulated shipper is recyclable. This means you can recycle the natural fiber pads, the poly film used to wrap KODIAKOTTON®, and the KODIAKOTTON® outer carton (box).
Natural Fiber Pads
Our natural fiber pads are fully recyclable. Remove them from the poly film and recycle.
After separating the poly film from the natural fiber pads, the poly film can be recycled with the rest of your plastic bags.
Simply flatten the box and recycle with the rest of your cardboard and paper.
