A
Pet food processors partner with packaging providers
to answer the call for more recyclable options.
By Richard Rowlands | petfoodprocessing@sosland.com
As the pet food industry moves toward a more sustainable
future, recyclable packaging products are becoming
more common. Recently, several leading pet food and
packaging companies made a public commitment to
sustainability by signing the Pet Sustainability Coalition's
(PSC) Packaging Pledge at SuperZoo 2022. The pledge is
a voluntary commitment to move toward more sustainable,
refillable, compostable and recyclable packaging.
The pledge asks pet industry companies to develop
measurable goals and track progress toward the use of
refillable, compostable and recyclable packaging by the
end of 2025. In exchange for their commitment, PSC
will provide informational tools, including:
* A marketplace of vetted, pre-qualified packaging
suppliers
* Methods of measuring packaging life cycles
* Packaging design guides and labeling support
from How2Recycle
* Legislative updates from North America and
the European Union on sustainable packaging
* Marketing assets, including badges and social
media promotion opportunities
" In exchange for their commitment, PSC is providing
signatories with tools such as packaging benchmarking
tools, North American and EU legislative briefs, a marketplace
of pre-vetted packaging suppliers, communication
assets, project support, and more, " said Caitlyn
Dudas, executive director of the PSC, Boulder, Colo.
" The PSC Packaging Pledge represents a powerful opportunity
for us to collaborate in significantly reducing
the industry's impact on the environment. We are proud
to spearhead this initiative and help drive more sustainable
and successful business. "
The positive impact of change
The use of recyclable packaging offers many benefits,
including reducing the amount of waste that ends up in

landfills. In addition, the production of recyclable packaging
often requires less energy and water, and creates fewer
greenhouse gas emissions than non-recyclable packaging.
" The greatest benefit of using recyclable packaging
is reducing the impact we as an industry have on the
environment, " said Dave McCoy, director of strategic
sourcing, Instinct Pet Food, St. Louis, Mo. " By utilizing
recyclable packaging, we're moving material away from
landfills and into recyclable streams that can use those
bags to make other products. "
" There are additional significant benefits that consumers
may not realize, that are reaped before the kibble even hits
the bag, " added Christine Mallier, sustainability and community
relations manager, Petcurean, Chilliwack, British
Columbia. " From the sourcing of the material and manufacturing
to the transporting of the bags, there are reductions
in greenhouse gas emissions, water use, mineral resource
use, human impact and freshwater ecotoxicity. "
During SuperZoo
2022, five pet food
manufacturers -
Canidae, Earth Animal,
Instinct, Petcurean
and Primal Pet Foods
- publicly signed the
PSC's Packaging Pledge,
making a commitment
toward using more
refillable, compostable
and recyclable packaging
through 2025.
