We Walk the Walk and Talk the Talk When It Comes to the Environment
We all love our pets and want them to be happy and healthy. But a healthy pet also requires a healthy planet. That’s why we’re doing our part to help make the world a little greener, starting with our eco-friendly packaging!
By knowing the ins and outs of our environmentally friendly packaging, you can rest assured that we’re doing our part to make sure our planet stays green for years to come! Let’s take a look at what makes our packaging, from the box you receive your order to the actual product bags themselves, so eco-friendly.
We’re Embracing a Krafty New Way to Make Our Packages Cleaner and Greener!
When you receive your HolistaPet order, you’ll notice our packaging is firm, study, and of the highest quality. We’re able to keep the products you ordered safe while maintaining our quality standards without compromising our commitment to the environment. That’s because the entire package you receive — from the box to the packing paper inside and the tape used to seal the box shut — is 100% biodegradable, compostable, recyclable, and made from kraft material!
Kraft is a type of plant-based material that’s made from wood pulp, a renewable resource. It’s 100% environmentally friendly, making it a great choice for eco-friendly packaging products. Plus, kraft is super strong and can hold up to a lot of wear and tear. That’s why we use it for our boxes and packing paper. We also use it as tape to secure your orders.
For years we were like most companies and used standard packaging tape, which is typically made from polypropylene and polyester. Both of these materials are not environmentally friendly and lead to increased waste. To reduce our environmental footprint, we made the change to using 100% biodegradable water-activated tape (WAT) made from 100% kraft material! Our WAT tape contains a starch-based adhesive that is activated when moistened and provides a strong, sticky hold.
We use kraft materials for packaging your product orders because we care about the environment and want to do our part to help make the world cleaner and greener! So the next time you receive your order, just know that the tape, box, and packing paper inside are 100% eco-friendly!
We Use 100% Biodegradable & Compostable Product Bags
Our sleek, beautifully designed product bags are 100% biodegradable and compostable, all the way down to the zipper that’s used to seal the bag and keep the products inside fresh!
Each bag is printed with water-based ink and constructed of metalized PLA. Don’t be scared by that term — metalized PLA is just a thin, flexible film that’s strong enough to protect what’s inside the package and prevent the contents from spoiling. You’ll be happy to know that metalized PLA is one of the best compostable products used in the packaging industry, which is why we use it!
Our Glass Bottles are 100% Recyclable and Reusable!
Our glass bottles are 100% recyclable and can be reused without any loss in quality. You can be a green guardian and help turn our glass packaging into newer items by simply tossing them into a recycle bin and having your local recycling center take care of the rest! Just make sure you remove the label before recycling and put them in containers that accept glass. You can also choose to thoroughly clean and reuse the glass bottles for your own purposes.
We’re Doing Our Part To Protect the Planet — Are You?
Our eco-friendly packaging ensures that our products and the planet are protected! Be a HolistaPet Hero, and always remember to recycle our packaging to help make our world a cleaner, greener, and better place for future generations of humans and their furry friends!
We know that we use many recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable products for our packaging, but we are always looking for new ways to be more eco-friendly. Although we still use rubber and plastic in some of our product packaging, we are fully committed to providing eco-friendly alternatives. In fact, we won’t rest until we’re 100% green, and you can help us get to that point!
