We’re Making the Switch

Here’s some news that’s giving us all the zoomies. Petcurean is one of the first five companies to sign the Pet Sustainability Coalition’s Packaging Pledge. That means we’ve made the commitment to switch to recyclable packaging by 2025.

    Why Are We Changing?

    Because the world is changing. And Petcurean is committed to being a leader in sustainability. One of the greatest opportunities is with our packaging. Right now, 99% of all pet food and treat packaging ends up in the landfill. Switching to 100% recyclable packaging supports our Impact Area: Protecting the Planet. Making this switch also supports our commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 12: Responsible Consumptions & Production and SDG 13: Climate Action.

    • Find the recycle logo on the bag
    • Make sure your bag is completely clean and dry
    • Look online for a drop-off spot if you don’t have curbside pick-up
    • Drop off the bag. Our planet thanks you!

    Recycling Our Bags Is as Easy as 1, 2, 3, (4)

    What’s Our Number?

    Our recyclable bags have the #4 designation, meaning they’re made of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and are accepted at recycling depots and stores throughout Canada and the USA. Some sustainability-minded communities offer curbside pickup.

    A Few More Numbers to Get Excited About

    Once we’ve made the switch to recyclable packaging, we’ll be diverting 315,000 kg of packaging from landfills annually.
