Nutshell Coolers hit the market (’18 Extreme Alums)


Fortuna Cools, an organization co-founded by 2018 Extreme Alum’s Tamara Mekler & David Cutler, have officially launched their first sustainable consumer product – the Nutshell Cooler! The cooler is collapsable, biodegradable, and insulated with leftover coconut husks from small-scale farmers in the Philippines (providing the rural community with an additional source of income and new jobs). The idea is a spinout from Tamara and David’s original team project in the course, Fortuna. Their recent launch of the Nutshell Cooler has also recently been featured in Forbes and Fast Company.
