A year of innovation and renewal
As the year draws to a close, we thought it would be good to reflect on a year of innovation and renewal, which saw Woolcool officially open its new HQ, win further Royal recognition and launch an award-winning new sustainable product.
Honoured by our latest Royal recognition
The nation has a new King and Woolcool has received another Royal honour. In what may prove to be the last Queen’s Award scheme before it is renamed, Woolcool has been recognised with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise (Sustainable Development).
Balancing the needs of sustainability against rising costs
Wool is nature’s Smart Fibre which, as a result of millions of years of development in nature’s laboratory – evolution – is flexible, reusable, recyclable, compostable, light and strong. It’s also abundant.
Our future plans to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals
As a company founded on principles of sustainability and responsibility, Woolcool is committed to meeting as many of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals – or SDGs – as we can.
Our agenda to contribute towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals objective
Key to the success of the agenda are the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals – or SDGs – which set out how everyone can contribute to make the world a better place, from defeating poverty to driving innovation.
Why we’re so proud of our latest royal recognition
Plaudits and praise were never the driving factor behind the Woolcool ethos. However, we are very proud of the latest accolade to be added to our trophy cabinet – the 2022 Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Sustainable Development.
A business funded on sustainable ideals
By harnessing the benefits of 100% pure wool to provide superior insulation for temperature-controlled packaging, Woolcool® was created as a viable alternative to polystyrene and other manmade materials, stopping millions of tonnes of pollutants from going into landfills.
A brilliant idea that was over a decade in the making
From the ‘eureka moment’ when our founder Angela Morris first realised the potential of 100% sheep’s wool as an insulator for packaging, to our Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation, Woolcool® has always looked for new ways of doing things.
Striking a balance: Working with farming to protect the planet
Our company was formed after a ‘eureka’ moment for our founder Angela Morris, after she was asked to find a way to help the National Trust’s farmers get their products to market in a reliable and environmentally friendly way.
Striking a balance: choosing the right materials
Our market-leading temperature-controlled packaging relies on expertly balancing conditions inside and outside of our products, whether it’s an insulated box or a smaller package, using the remarkable insulation properties of 100% sheep’s wool.
