In a bid to improve our polluted world, we are scrapping our plastic trays in the coming months. The first trial of our new paper trays began this week, with a selection of our customer base. We’re excited to get the feedback. Once the trial is complete we will do some final tweaks and make the big switch soon.
As we all know, plastic waste is contributing to global pollution at an alarming rate. We are determined to significantly reduce our carbon footprint over the next few years, a vital part of this is changing our packaging.
While our current trays are made from a recyclable plastic called polypropylene, they can only be recycled once before being discarded. This is not good enough.
Our new tubs will be 98% recyclable, which means you can pop them into your compost bin or your recycling bin once used.
Here is a video introduction:
We love innovation at Bella & Duke and are always looking to stay at the cutting edge of our industry. As far we know, we are one of a few raw dog food companies to innovate in this way. Hopefully, more will follow in our footsteps.
Please note that, for now, this is only a trial period on our enriched range. We couldn’t hold our excitement any longer, we simply had to tell you. Unfortunately, we can’t switch immediately when the trial ends. We need to invest in automated sealing machines (our trial samples have all been sealed by hand for now!). There is a lead time of several months involved in ordering and receiving the equipment.
Rest assured, we are on the case!
