What should I do with the dry ice in my direct ship order?

Orders shipped directly will be packed in an insulated cooler with dry ice -- guaranteed to stay frozen.

Note: Dry ice should be handled with caution and only with protective gloves to avoid burns caused by freezing. Do not put in drinks, do not eat and do not touch with bare skin, mouth or eyes. Do not put into airtight containers as the contents can explode. Do not use or store in areas other than those in which are open and well ventilated. Keep away from children and animals.

To properly dispose of dry ice:

  1. Place outside in shipping container, and
  2. Crack the lid to allow it to disperse into the atmosphere.
