They come pre-filled and are completely food safe. They do not stick together when frozen and have high quality seals. Simply freeze and use!

Polystyrene HoCo Boxes...
are designed to be durable and last for years. However, if you feel they have come to the end of their life as a cool box, they don't need to end up in land fill. EPS boxes are 100% recyclable (providing they are contaminant free) and they also have loads of alternative uses!

  • Planters for the garden. Our boxes are deep and perfect for carrots, leeks, and mushrooms!
  • Break into big chunks and place in the bottom of window boxes, pots, tubs or hanging baskets, under the compost to help with drainage and prevent frozen roots in Winter!
  • Break into tiny pieces and incorporate into garden compost to improve aeration and drainage.
  • Take on a picnic to keep your food hot or cold!
  • Homemade hedgehog / cat house.
  • A box for transporting valuables when moving house - EPS is a great shock absorber.
  • Junk modelling with the kids!
