Reduce, reuse, recycle

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

These materials are super critical for ensuring that your pet food orders arrive frozen, but we don’t wish to contribute large amounts of waste so we’ve come up with a few possible solutions. 

First off, reducing waste up front is the most environmentally friendly thing you can do.  By maximizing your order sizes, you can ensure that every box that is shipped to you is fully utilized.   A "full" box contains 42lbs of food, so If your dog eats 1.5 pounds of food per day that's 4 weeks of food.  But regardless of the size of your dog, it's age, or if you have multiple dogs, we offer various ship schedules to fit your needs.  Not sure?  Contact us and we'll help you figure it out.

If the shipping materials are not damaged in transit, then they may be reusable.  A small eraser tip sized hole in the silver cover of a box liner would not rule this out but a quarter sized gash or tear in the liner or insulated bag would.  A little dust would not, but sticky food substances would rule out reuse of those materials.  It doesn’t make sense to transport an otherwise empty box back to us just for the shipping materials as the cost and transportation would exceed the benefit.  However, we’ve found that returning two sets of the 2-piece box liners inside of the insulated bubble bags is a reasonable solution.  If you wish to hold onto your materials until you have 2 complete sets that are in reusable condition; we’d be happy to send you a postage paid USPS label to return those to us for reuse.  

All of your shipping materials are recyclable.  If the shipping materials are damaged in transit, or you simply do not wish to retain materials until they can be returned, please just place them in your recycle bin.


Thank you ~
