we love the environment as much as we love animals
Sustainable packaging is packaging that, over time, reduces its environmental footprint.
One way of achieving this is to minimise the use of packaging in the first instance and also by using recycled materials. Reusability is another factor.
We employ all of these methods at Animal Pharm:
1. Our boxes are made from a minimum 80% recycled cardboard.
2. Our packaging filler is 100% recycled material.
3. We encourage our customers to re-use the packaging filler, it works brilliantly as bedding material for small pets like hamsters, gerbils and rabbits.
And even if you forget to separate our cardboard boxes with your recycled goods then the good news is that the cardboard is 80% biodegradable, if it is placed in a landfill with other waste.
Other bodies, like the Forest Stewardship Council, ensure that any wood-based products (like cardboard) are made from sustainably-sourced forests.
Our shipping boxes are FSC certified.
We know how important the environment is to our customers and we want to do our bit wherever we can.
