Polystyrene, or styrofoam packaging, is often used for transporting fresh food because it is cost-effective, easily produced and excellent for insulating—but it is not a material that is friendly to the environment. In fact, it is estimated that it may take anywhere from 500 to a million years for a piece of styrofoam to naturally decompose.

WooBox is currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign that aims to introduce the world to a much simpler and sustainable solution to styrofoam packaging. As its name suggests, the WooBox is made from just two natural materials: wood and wool. The boxes boast a 100% recyclable design that can be interlocked for ease of shipping, presenting a much more eco-friendly alternative to single-use packaging materials, that still promises to insulate stored goods.
