Eco Friendly Pet Food


We’ve only got one planet, and we’re committed to reducing our 'environmental paw-print’ as we grow. See the steps we are taking to be an eco-friendly pet food company.

Green Ingredients

  • organic pet food ingredients

    We’re commitment to continuously replacing conventional ingredients with certified organic alternatives wherever possible, as well as sourcing wild-crafted and organic herbs for our supplements.

  • free range chicken

    In 2009, we moved to to 100% free-range, antibiotic-free and sustainably raised chicken from Petaluma Poultry in California. Our turkey is cage-free and we use only wild-caught fish.

  • non-gmo foods

    We use only non-GMO produce and organic seeds and grains. In fact, when the USDA approved genetically engineered alfalfa, we immediately switched to organic alfalfa.

 

Green Production

  • produced in the usa

    100% of our manufacturing (for products and packaging) takes place in North America to reduce transportation and carbon emissions. We’re committed to eliminating virgin materials wherever possible and reducing waste by using only re-usable, recyclable or biodegradable materials.

  • compact pet food materials

    Our finished products are compact, concentrated and lightweight to ship, meaning more of every production dollar is put into ingredients and less into transportation, because we’re not shipping excess bulk or water weight.

  • lower processing temperature

    Dehydration uses lower temperatures and less energy than other food processing methods such as canning and extrusion.

 

Green Packaging

  • recyclable pet food barrier bags

    We use recyclable ‘minimalist’ and unprinted barrier bags that efficiently protect the food inside and have convenient sliding zippers.

  • sustainable forestry initiative

    Our boxes are made from a combination of recycled material and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certified, unbleached kraft paperboard, printed with vegetable inks. They’re 100% biodegradable, recyclable or compostable after use.

  • bpa-free pet food packaging

    We also choose BPA-free packaging (BPA is a compound found in lots of packaging including most cans, which is a hormone disruptor that’s been linked with hyperthyroidism in cats).

 

Green Business

  • green america member

    The Honest Kitchen is an approved member of Green America, (formerly Co-op America).

  • four leaf rating from greenopia

    We are one of only four pet food companies that received the ‘four-leaf’ rating from Greenopia.

  • green business practices

    We use energy-efficient computer equipment and monitors and have installed long-life, CFL light bulbs and motion-sensor lighting in certain areas of our corporate offices. We also have company bikes that we use to get around town and pick up our lunches.
