World Sustainability Day is an annual event that takes place on the last Wednesday of every October. The day was created to remind the community of the importance of caring for and protecting the environment. Sustainability is so important to us, both as a business and in our personal lives, but we know that shopping sustainably for your pet can sometimes be a challenge. That is why we've put together this handy guide of some of our favourite sustainable pet brands...
Adios Plastic's compostable poo bags are made from plants, they are fully biodegradable and compostable. These poo bags are unlike most on the market, they are certified to EN13432 standards, meaning they pass strict composting tests. They will completely break down back into the Earth within 3 - 6 months, leaving zero waste behind. Unlike many other biodegradable bags, Adios Plastic poo bags are made entirely from plants and contain no nasty additives. Like us, Adios Plastic, cares about the environment… a lot. This is why all their poo bags come supplied in cardboard boxes which are FSC approved. Working with their partners at 1% for the planet, Adios Plastic donates a percentage of sales back to the environment, helping protect sea life and bring an end to the high levels of plastic in our Oceans. Plus they are available in lots of lovely colours!
Scrumbles is a fabulous natural pet food company dedicated to the gut health of cats and dogs alike. Their tasty range of food and treats are all made in the UK, approved by vets and developed with nutritionists to meet FEDIAF guidelines. And of course they are all taste-tested in house by their own pets, Smudge and Boo! They thoroughly believe that good food shouldn’t cost the earth, and want to have a positive impact on our environment for the benefit of future kitties and doggies. For example, to reduce their food miles they choose to manufacture locally in the UK and Ireland and opt for eco-packaging in a bid to avoid landfill. As a member of B Corp and 1% for the Planet, with every sale, they donate a portion to wider environmental and social initiatives.
