Our ethics

Environmental – reducing our pawprint

Be the change you want

We care about the environment we live and work in, and are taking steps to ensure our impact is as small as possible. We try to be the change we want by using:

AustralianWe pride ourselves on being Australian and using Australian-made and -grown inputs wherever possible. This ensures we have higher quality control and keeps our dollars and employment here.
Box packingWe use bio-friendly packing – either excess newspaper scrunched, or Australian-made bio-fill ‘peanuts’ made from Corn Starch not plastic. They dissolve in water leaving no harsh residue, can be disposed of in your garbage, or they are 100% biodegradable and can be composted or added to soil where they’ll improve the soil structure.
Box tapeThe tape on our boxes is paper-based with a wet gum, making it both compostable and biodegradable.
Cling wrapFor the dried products we wrap in-house, we use a recyclable and biodegradable cling wrap film free from BPA or PVC.
DryingOur dried treats are air-dried in Australia’s most technically advanced, environmentally friendly facility with solar cells and heat bank to supply the base load of more than 3,000 kW of pure energy
Market bagsWe offer recycled paper or calico reusable bags at markets.
Our carbonWe offset our own energy use in baking, office, and transport with extensive bushland replanting and regeneration projects on our property and in the surrounding region
Product bagsWe use kraft paper made from recycled materials, with a bio-film liner that is compostable and biodegradable.
Shipping boxesWe use either Australia Post or our own shipping boxes, and both are made from recycled cardboard.
Suppliers carbonWe use ethical and carbon-neutral suppliers wherever possible and minimise the ‘product miles’ our products use. We use Australia Post as our main shipper, they have a commitment to be carbon-neutral for their entire operation.
Sustainable fish catchWe will not carry any stock from threatened or endangered fish species – if we can’t verify the fish species used, we won’t carry it.
We don’t stock any shark product as we’re unable to verify the species caught.
Zip lock bagsWe use recyclable and biodegradable zip lock bags, free from BPA or PVC.
