Life Cycle Comparison Analysis of Environmental Impact of Reusable versus Single-use shippers

Life Cycle Comparison Analysis of Environmental Impact of Reusable versus Single-use shippers

Reusable Crēdo Cube™ reduces global warming potential by 75 percent and post-consumer waste by 95 percent.

The results of a newly completed 2012 Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) research project conducted by Kai Goellner, IE/ME University of Minnesota, concludes that the Crēdo Cube™ shipper imposes less environmental burden in all five impact categories studied. The five-stage “cradle-to-grave” life cycle impact comparison of the Crēdo Cube™ 4-1296 (12 liter) reusable shipper to a similar performance (volumetric capacity/duration) single-use shipper clearly demonstrates that the durable and reusable temperature-controlled container utilizing a closed loop logistics system significantly reduces the carbon footprint of transporting temperature sensitive payloads, especially in high volumes.
