When discussing Certified B Corp criteria, sustainability, and responsible sourcing for the Dog Almighty brand, we took many steps in choosing the right product packaging to make the brand more sustainable. We looked at things from all angles, including the environmental impact of each option from the beginning to the end of its lifecycle, including minimization of waste, reducing carbon footprint, responsible processing and more. We ultimately decided to choose Tetra Pak® for more reasons than one.
"We ultimately decided to choose Tetra Pak® for more reasons than one."
Tetra Pak® responsibly sources their materials, with more than 70% of their carton being paperboard, a renewable plant-based material made from FSC – certified forests and other independently certified and traceable sources. This certification means new trees are continuously growing to replace what was used. Additionally, plant-based materials are better for the environment because they can be replenished over time, enabling a move away from fossil fuel-based materials. Tetra Pak® is a founding member of the Carton Council, a nonprofit organization of carton manufacturers that works to support recycling technology and local collection. Additionally, the company has committed to 100% renewable energy and have net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in global operations by 2030.
"Dog Almighty packaging has been made with good in mind.
The Tetra Pak® cartons are also 100% recyclable"
Dog Almighty packaging has been made with good in mind. The shelf-stable package does not need to be refrigerated until it’s opened, meaning less energy to transport (think, no chilled trucks!), and buying and storing are made more convenient, as they don’t need to be chilled. The Tetra Pak® cartons are also100% recyclable and can be turned into paper products like tissues and writing paper, or even green building materials.
These are just some of the great ways our Tetra Pak® cartons minimize our
environmental impact, and we’re so proud to be working with them for the Dog Almighty brand and do our part to help the planet and make more sustainable products.
