In the quest for sustainable solutions, Swanline Group has developed a product that contributes to innovation and environmental responsibility: the Cygnus® Ice Bucket. This Ice Bucket, crafted from our proprietary Cygnus® Eco Board, shows the versatility of the board. Not only does it provide an eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic ice buckets, but it also exemplifies the durability of the Cygnus® Eco Board as seen within our test.

Our design team was tasked with creating an Ice Bucket made from our Cygnus® Eco Board which is made to be water resistant for short term usages. We had our award-winning designers create a structurally sound design to enable the custom printable Ice Bucket to compete against its plastic alternative, whilst maintaining integrity.



Cygnus® Eco Material

At the centre of the Cygnus® Ice Bucket’s success is the Cygnus® Eco material. This 100% fibre-based pulp material is a game changer in the world of sustainable packaging. Here’s why:

  1. Moisture Resistance: Cygnus® Eco material offers exceptional moisture resistance, ensuring that the ice bucket maintains its structural integrity with no leakages whilst keeping its contents cool.
  2. Custom Printability: Unlike standard ice buckets, which cannot be easily or affordably personalised whilst being made in the UK. The Cygnus® Ice Bucket can be custom printed to match any branding or aesthetic requirements. This feature opens a range of possibilities for businesses looking to enhance their brand presence in an eco-friendly manner, great for events or restaurants.
  3. Reusability and Recyclability: The Cygnus® Ice Bucket can be reused multiple times, extending its life cycle and reducing waste. When it reaches the end of its useful life, it can be 100% recycled or composted, thereby contributing to a sustainable future.


Cygnus Ice Bucket: A Sustainable Innovation

The recent video conducted by Swanline Group demonstrates the remarkable performance of the Cygnus® Ice Bucket. During testing, the bucket proved effective in keeping the contents cool while inhibiting moisture escape. This ensures that not only does the bucket remain intact, but it also maintains the quality of the ice and beverages within.
