About Our Product Packaging
Let's start with the food packaging we use. Our food tubs are made from previously recycled material, meaning that it's already had one use and is now serving it's next purpose as a 500g tub to hold our delicious raw dog food. Our tubs are made from eco-pet which is fully recyclable and can be placed straight in to your recycling bin.
Our treats are also packaged in 100% biodegradable packaging.
About Our Delivery Boxes
We also offer our customers an Eco friendly option for delivery which contains a fully recyclable cardboard box and a liner made from all natural, 100% sheep's wool housed in a recyclable, food grade polyethylene.
The sheep's wool used is responsibly sourced and is 100% biodegradable - meaning it can be placed on a compost heap where it will naturally break down - if the wool was to end up on a landfill, it will still naturally biodegrade within a 6-12 month period. The outer liner itself housing the sheep's wool can be placed alongside our tubs in to your recycling bin. As of right now we offer our Eco friendly delivery boxes as standard on all orders.
We are committed to providing a product and service that doesn't harm our planet, moving forward we will continuously look at how we as a raw dog food company can improve on our product and services.
Please note, currently our eco boxes are not available to our trade customers.
Can I Return The Boxes or Liners?
We unfortunately cannot accept returns of our product packaging due to hygiene reasons. However, they can be placed in to your recycling bin.
We also did some calculations and determined that it would be less eco friendly to have a courier collect any boxes and/or liners to be reused by us, as the returned box full of liners would need to be transported on multiple lorries and vans to reach our depot which wouldn't be great for the planet. Instead, it is better to recycle the boxes and the outer casing of the liners (or the entire liner if you don't have a compost heap for the wool inside) and then throw the wool from the liners on to the compost heap.
Of course, if you are local and have any undamaged box liners you wish to return, then you can drop them off to reception and we will be happy to reuse them.
Are The Packing Chips You Use Eco Friendly?
We only use biodegradable packing chips (those are the little S shaped chips within your box to keep your order safe during transit). They can be thrown on to the compost heap or in to the waste bin - they dissolve in water so will cause no unnecessary wastage.
Why did we ditch our cardboard sleeves?
Quite simply, although our cardboard outer sleeves looked great on our product there is the concern that they are not so good for the environment. A majority of our customers felt the cardboard sleeves added an enormous amount of additional cardboard to their recycling bins. With this in mind, we had to find a balance in reducing any wastage and maintaining a product which looked good in pet stores across the country. Introducing our new colour labels. Our new labels reduce wastage considerably and are fully recyclable, the production resources that go in to making our labels has also been reduced when compared to that of a cardboard sleeve, plus, we think they still look pretty awesome!
