Only Natural Pet Releases Sustainable Packaging Research
Only Natural Pet, a subsidiary of PetSmart, is sharing its sustainable packaging report to the industry so that they, too, can benefit from the report’s findings, said company officials.
“The information presented in the report has been immensely valuable to our team in forming our current and future packaging decisions, and we think the whole industry can benefit from its outlined solutions,” said Marty Grosjean, CEO of Only Natural Pet, a founding member of the Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC).
The report, “Examination of Alternatives to Multilaminate Pouches,” was conducted by nonprofit group Eco-Cycle. The report provides an overview of sustainable packaging choices facing pet companies using flexible plastics by grouping current marketplace and future options by categories, including preferred solutions, acceptable solutions and options to avoid, said officials from Only Natural Pet, which is headquartered in Boulder, Colo.
“The more companies that get their hands on this report, the better equipped they will be to make better decisions about their packaging,” said Caitlyn Dudas, executive director of the PSC.
