Is the foam insulation toxic?

No! It is non-toxic and biodegradable, meaning it is safe for the environment no matter what disposal method you choose.

Are the ice packs biodegradable?

Unfortunately, the ice packs are not biodegradable. However, they are reusable and can be used at home for personal use.

What do I do if my shipment container’s foam melted during shipping?

If your cooler has significant damage on the interior, due to water damage during shipping. Please reach out to the pharmacy at 603-653-3785 to determine the safe-use of your medication.

Can I return the cooler to the pharmacy after I receive my shipment?

Due to the nature of these coolers and their eco-friendly qualities, we will no longer be offering return shipping to the pharmacy for disposal. Please see above on how you can dispose of these coolers.

Can I request to have my prescription sent overnight or have a signature required?
