Sawdust acts as an insulator against the surrounding temperatures and helps maintain the low temperatures of ice, so ice is packed in sawdust always or sometimes in layers of sack cloth.

This is simple, the air present in between the particles of sawdust make a layer to keep maintain the temperature of ice.
