Doggos going green: Only Natural Pet introduces biobased packaging


In Colorado, Only Natural Pet has announced it will replace a third of its Mindful Meals dry dog food packaging with bioplastics based on sugarcane.

The company will specifically use Braskem’s sugarcane-based I’m greenTM polyethylene biopolymer. Ontario’s  Peel Plastics worked with Only Natural Pet and Braskem to design the packaging.

“We are very excited to be using the I’m greenTM biopolymer in our new Mindful Meals product line. The product is all about sustainable ingredients and thoughtful sourcing to create the ultimate dog food, so packaging it in a sustainable bag is ideal to further our sustainability goals — and of course to increase the appeal to pet parents,” Marty Grosjean, founder and president of Only Natural Pet, tells Food Business News.

Only Natural Pet, a founding member of the Pet Sustainability Coalition, offers natural pet supplies. Its products include food, treats, supplements and natural flea prevention and treatment.
