Shelf Stable & Earth Safe Biodegradable Pet Food Packaging
March 5, 2018
Are you committed to furthering your sustainability initiatives this year? What’s good for the Earth is good for our pets, and in 2018 Emmerson Packaging wants to help premium pet food manufacturers ensure the reverse is also true: that what’s good for our pets is also good for the Earth.
A Holistic Approach To Pet Care
Caring for animals goes hand-in-hand with caring for the planet. Promoting better pet health starts with better nutrition, but doesn’t end there. Partnering with packaging innovators that promote sustainability at every step of the manufacturing process enables a holistic approach to pet care that environmentally conscious pet owners will appreciate and support.
Advocating For Animals & The Planet With PetPack-BDG™
We developed PetPack-BDG™ with a holistic approach to developing sustainable pet food packaging in mind. Our goal was to create a flexible packaging solution that promoted both the well-being of pets and of the planet.
PetPack-BDG™ is fully biodegradable and makes it easier than ever for animal lovers to help the planet. There is no complicated disposal process—when the bag is empty, pet owners can simply add it to their household garbage. The innovative design of PetPack-BDG™ means it will begin to biodegrade as soon as it is exposed to active landfill conditions, leaving behind biomass and methane gas, which can be diverted and used as a source of clean energy. PetPack-BDG™ has been tested against ASTM D5511 and no toxic materials are known to be left behind during the biodegradation process.
Manufacturers of premium pet food products will be delighted to learn that PetPack-BDG™ does not compromise on appearance. Giving consumers the tools to reduce their environmental footprint means getting their attention first. Sharp, stunning, rub-resistant graphics are part of the PetPack-BDG™ appeal, so premium pet food producers never have to sacrifice shelf impact to help themselves and their customers reach their sustainability goals.
Safety First: Shelf Stability, Wet And Dry
The safety of our pets and yours is our top priority. PetPack-BDG™ will never begin to break down unless it’s in an active landfill environment, no matter what’s inside. If your premium pet food line includes wet or moist foods, you can trust PetPack-BDG™ to safely contain them for the life of the product without prematurely breaking down or affecting palatability.
