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 100% 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.
