Grateful GIveaways – Recycooler

The Recycooler is a reusable and recyclable, green/earth friendly cooler made from a minimum 60% post-consumer product and printed with soy based ink that's great for picnics, concerts, tailgating, ball games, road trips, and all types of events.

The patent pending design of a Recycooler comprises a unique cellulose insulation component that is superior for keeping drinks and food COLD for long periods of time even in the hottest conditions. Best of all, by choosing the Recycooler you are helping our environment by making a smart, environmentally conscious choice over traditional polystyrene coolers.

If you take care of your Recycooler it will last for a long time, but when you are finished with the product just discard it in a recycling bin and buy a new one.

You guys know I live in the boonies.  I keep my Recycooler in the back of my car for transporting my cold items from the grocery store. It is lightweight and the perfect size to grab whenever I need it.  I have also used it on those fun days when I have to run the boys around all day.  I can throw their drinks and snacks in the cooler and they will be ready when we need them.

I love how convenient the Recycooler is and that when I am done with it I can just recycle it. Mine has come in so handy that I think I will hang on to it for a while :-)

We also got to sample some goodies from Pearson Farms and Cleveland Organics...everything is just delicious!!  I am actually enjoying a chocolate covered pecan as I type this right now.  Yes, I work very hard for you guys--tee hee!!  This is a prize package that any dad would love to get!!

One lucky I Heart Publix reader will win a Recycooler package including the Recycooler plus goddies from Pearson Farm, and from Cleveland Organics as well as a monogrammed apron and chef's hat!

    I would love to use the recycooler for transporting groceries as I live 30 minutes from the nearest publix!! I follow your site on google reader. Thanks for all you do!!!

  3. Christine says

    I would use my Recycooler for our trips to the different Springs this summer.

  4. says

    I will use my Recycooler at Outdoor Movies in the park for a quality family night.My Recycooler is multipurpose so my kids will pack their lunch & snacks in it for camp too.Most importantly,my Recycooler will go with us each day in the car to keep our drinks and snacks cool on our frequent outtings to doctor appointments and summer activities.This is especially important on HOT Summer days to have a cool drink and light snack while on the go :)))

  5. Kim says

    Tons of ways to use it in HOT Alabama! But my hubby would most love it to tote around all of his beverages!

  6. Barbara says

    I will use it: At the pool, going to and while at the beach, between the grocery store and home, to send lunch traveling with my husband or for me to put in the basket of my handicap scooter as I travel around our community and to the farmer’s market!

  7. Barbara says

    I have been a follower of I Heart Publix on my Google Reader for some time! I would also use the Recycler to send goodies home with my kids when they visit! They have a 5 hour drive and never bring a cooler with them!

  8. Kelly Garcia says

    I’d get TONS of use of this at the pool and beach this summer! Love your site!

  9. says

    I would use my Recycool at the beach and for when I pick up my Food from the Food CSA to keep it fresher longer.

  10. Stacie says

    Looks like we will be spending a lot of time at the ball park this summer, lots of water and cold clothes in the cooler!!!

  11. Amy Verdensky says

    Our Recycooler would be used LOTS!!! It would go to the beach, it would go boating, it will go on mini vacays and much much more! I think we take what is called a carbar to a lot of park events on a bi-monthly basis! Would love one!

  12. Liz says

    I live in Florida, so it’s nice to have a cooler in the car to get your cold stuff home from the store before the ice cream melts!

  13. says

    We have a trip from SC to Tulsa planned for this summer (our BIG trip of the year). This would be perfect for drinks and snacks along the way (save some $$!).

  14. Gail says

    Wow!!! Would love to receive this cooler, as I live almost an hour away from the closest Publix — and the southern summer is coming — NOW!

  15. Kate says

    when i get some time off work, the husband and i, would love to actually visit the beaches on the gulf coast.

  16. Gail says

    I just started following Recycooler on Facebook by “liking” them, based on your links!! Thanks!!

  17. Cyn D. says

    I live about 4 blocks from my community pool and would love to have this to take down to the pool with me.

  18. Melissa Lynn says

    I have 3 small kids and would love to have this cooler to use while at the parks and beaches this summer.

  19. Melissa says

    Since we just moved to Florida, I hope to be using mine at the beach!!! Thanks for all of these great giveaways!

  20. Teresa Judd says

    We would love this to take to the beach! It’s pretty hot in Florida right now so this would be perfect!

  21. Tonya says

    I’m in Jacksonville, Fl. and the temps here are pushing 100 degrees today. I sure wish I’d had one of these to get those 4 boxes of BOGO Popsicles home earlier:)

  22. Brandi says

    I would love to have this to get the cold groceries home safely during the 30 minute drive in Alabama Heat!

  23. Laura says

    That sure looks nice! I’d like to strap that on the rear rack of my bike to get cold stuff from the store or even bike to the park for a picnic. I bet you could put a gallon of milk in there and still have room left over!

  24. Laurie says

    I really could use the cooler for all the hiking, kayak and picnics we plan to do this summer.

  25. Barbara says

    I would use my Recycooler constantly in the back of my car to bring home more deals…..would also use it on road trips and going to the beach!!

  26. Manuela says

    My husband could use it when he takes the boat out on the river! Keep nice cold water for him in there!

  27. Tina Terrell says

    I would use it on the boat! I would use it in a moat, I would use it use it

  28. Devan Stelmaszek says

    We go to the beach at least every other week , and our other cooler broke! We also have picnics at the park, once a month!

  29. Janna Mawhinney says

    We visit the beach at least once a week through the summer, and we would certainly use it during our vacation time at the end of the summer. Looks fun! :)

  30. Kathy says

    I will take mine to ballgames so I will have something cold for me during the game and for the kids after they are done playing.

  31. LISA BROWN says


  32. Angela says

    We would use it for long car trips to Texas and one to Ohio! Plus it would be great in this Southern heat to have it when I grocery shop!

  33. Heather Cathrall says

    I love tailgating before baseball games in the summer. My friends, family & I are huge sports fans! I would love to be able to bring the recycooler with me to pack lots of beverages and yummy treats in!

  34. Heather Cyllus says

    I’ll be using it on our trip to beautiful Lake Michigan this summer.

  38. Shannon says

    We’ll use the recycooler in our back yard, we just put a water slide in and man it’s hot out there!

  39. says

    Probably will use it for my sons lunches for work. And he can bring home the Publix frozen purchases when he gets a “honey doo” grocery list that needs to be picked-up. Thanks for the chance to win all these wonderful giveaways.

  40. Jamie says

    Would love it for our lake house! Always need a cooler to take drinks to the boat or dock, and our lake house is off a dirt road so the recycling feature would be wonderful.

  41. Donna says

    We would use it on our car trips to historical sites and for concerts in the park in our town

  42. Britta says

    I am an Environmental Science master’s student and I do a lot of field work collecting samples to study, I will use this to snack in the field while staying green!

  43. jennifer holley says

    i would love to have this cooler to take on the boat at the lake and to take to the beach!!!

  44. Amanda says

    I will be taking mine to the farmers market to fill up with goodies, it’s on the other side of the county from me so I have to have good storage for my finds!

  45. Inez says

    I follow by iheartpublix via emails, and I would use this going out to the parks and playgrounds with my kids.

  46. Sharon says

    Since we live in the hot south AND a about a half hour from everything, we take a cooler of water in the van every time we leave the house!

  47. Caroline says

    I would use my Recycooler for a quick camping trip. Have you ever forgot about a pack of hotdogs or maybe some mayo in your cooler when you unpack it from the car only to find the stinky things later when you are ready to use your cooler again? Gross. If I had a recycooler, I would have the option of rinsing and throwing the thing in the recycle bin. Unlike a regular cooler that must be washed, scrubbed, deoderized and sanitized all over again.

  48. Jennifer Wilbur says

    My husband and i camp all the time! We are also HUGE dolphins fans! so tailgating is pretty much a weekend ritual once football season rolls around. This is awesome and we could put this to good use!

  49. jessica says

    i would let my husband use it for work he takes a little cooler and doesnt have enough room in it this would make great for 12-18 hour shifts

  50. Amy Letourneau says

    This will have so many functions, to the beach, to the grocery store, to sport events, picnics just to name a few!! Thank You!!

  51. NT says

    we will be using our recycooler for trips to the beach, and while exploring state/local/national parks (which we do often!), and many other events!

  52. Jennifer M says

    We are actually headed to the Indy 500 this weekend, but we go every year, and this would be a great cooler for the stands. My one last year leaked water all over me!

  53. Phillip B says

    I can just imagine
    my toes in the water,
    my behind in the sand
    and a GEORGIA branded Recycooler
    to keep cold drinks on hand.

  54. Lynda Clark says

    I also live out in the boonies in the desert where it gets to 120-degrees in the summer. I drive 45 minutes to 2 hours each month to do shopping, so the Recycooler will be just the thing to keep my groceries cool on the trip home.

  55. Kellie says

    I would take the cooler on road trips, picnics, and even a day or two camping trip! Coolers of any kind are very great and handy for a longer car ride, bring your own, save a bundle!

  56. Andrea Minix says

    I would use it to pack sandwiches in when we go on vacation or a picnic!

  57. Erin Slattery says

    I am hoping to use mine on the beach in San Diego and Irvine areas, love vacations :)

  58. Stephanie says

    We have 2 vacations this summer so we would use it in the car for snacks and drinks. Plus one of the trips is at the beach so it would be wonderful for a day at the beach.

  59. Tina says

    I will use it to bring some COOL stuff back to Malaysia, a 2 days trip on the plane for me. So this bag is sooooooooooooooooo handy!!

  60. April Johnson says

    We are not one to spend much time on a beach. However, we are ones to grill out religiously and have a houseful of people. That is where we use many coolers for drinks and food items that need to stay cool. This is where we will use it the most, and when we occasionally go to the pool, we will take it with us also.

  61. Megan says

    I’d love this awesome cooler to take lunches and snacks with us on family outings to the parks and lakes near our home!

  62. Ami says

    This cooler would be great to use on family camping trips this summer!! Thanks!!!

  63. Tammy says

    I would LOVE one of these coolers. I live in FL and we head to the beach on a regular basis. I was just thinking I needed to buy a new cute cooler!

  64. zale says

    I live about 20 miles from the grocery store and your idea of keeping in the back of the car so I could stop at a second store without roasting my need to keep cold items is great!

  65. Jennifer says

    I like to walk to the grocery store, but don’t usually bring back cold items on those trips. This would let me do that.

  66. says

    My husband & I would use it for lunch time in town together!! I would also hope to use it on the golf course for a date!! Just in time for Father’s Day golf!!!

    I follow you via email.

  67. Cody Shaddix says

    I wuld use it at work. I work in the heat of Florida,so I need something to keep my lunch cold. Plus we have passes to Bush Gardens, This would be great to keep items cold in the truck for the trip.

  68. Tina says

    We play on staying at the pool a lot. I have 3 water loving kiddos. I would LOVE to have one of these to take snacks and drinks to keep them hydrated and happy.

  69. Michelle says

    I will be using when we take a family outing each week. Great place to store drinks and something for lunch. I was just looking at getting a new cooler, this would be great to win.

  70. Kasey says

    We plan family outings almost every weekend during the summer. Mostly camping and hiking so I will be bringing this cooler along all the time.

  71. Gigi says

    I would love to use this Recycooler when I’m at the pool, or if I’m lucky on a day at the beach!

  72. lookitsatree says

    I will be hitting the park with my hubby and toddler. Once my younger brother is out of school, we’ll grab my mom, too and head to Alabama to see my grandparents, now made GREAT-grandparents. Yay!!

  73. Cathy B says

    Our cooler is falling apart – would use one for carring food to family get togethers which are 3 hours away.

  74. says

    ah crap, I didn’t realize I’d already entered this, very sorry, please disregard my last 2 posts. sorry about that. I have a written list keeping track but I got confused.

  75. Melinda Daum says

    Can’t wait to win my recycooler so I can use it at softball games this summer and haul my frozen freebies home from the store!

  76. Lolli says

    We will be using ours in the car on one of our many roadtrips. And on our way home from the grocery.

  77. Angel Pounds says

    for the little one’s bottles during travel, and for the bigger one’s cheese and snacks! and for the pool, of course!

  78. Stacie Frost says

    This would be perfect for the lake! We spend a lot of time in the water in the summer and this would be awesome to have! Thanks for entering me!

    We go to Florida several times over the summer. Then at the pool everyday.

    We go on family picnics at least once a week at the park. We also get the canoe in the water every couple if weeks and always need a cool place to store lunch and the child’s water and juice.

    We would use this cooler all the time especially with our trips to the beach and sea world, this is perfect!! Exactly what we’ve been looking for.

  96. Kathy Clark says

  97. Sara says

    I would use the Recycooler anytime we go in the car!!! I have a husband who thinks Styrofoam coolers are like nails on a chalkboard and plastic coolers are big and bulky so this would be convenient!!! We could keep water and drinks for us in the cooler and also keep bottles cool for our 6 month old!!!

  98. alcee clayborne says

    I would use my recycooler at all the outdoor concerts I am going to this summer

  99. Stephanie Wade says
