Good for pets, and the planet.

Reducing our environmental paw print is important to us. See how we’re committed to making the planet a little more pet-friendly—and human-friendly.

Green Ingredients

produced in the usa

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.

organic pet food ingredients

In 2009, we moved to to 100% free-range, antibiotic-free and sustainably raised chicken. Our turkey is cage-free and we use only wild-caught, MSC certified fish.

non-gmo foods

We use only non-GMO produce and organic seeds and grains. We also have many products that have been Non-GMO Project Verified!

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 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).

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 our production plant & warehouse use motion-sensor lighting. We also have company bikes that we use to get around town and pick up our lunches.
