I am produced near Munich, Germany, by the company Landpack. The straw comes from contract farmers in the immediate vicinity, my wrapping and the hemp fibers are sourced within the EU. I was invented in 2013 by Thomas & Patricia Eschenlohr, who wanted to develop a really ecologically sensible and efficient alternative to expanded polystyrene packaging. I have been on the market since 2017 and ensure that food, pharmaceuticals and other temperature sensitive products arrive at your doorstep intact, protected from impacts and cooled well. I thereby replace thousands of polystyrene boxes every day and save tons of CO2 emissions.
