What is zero waste dog food?

Reduce single-use plastic

Zero waste dog food is a sustainable option for pet owners who want to reduce their environmental impact. It involves using whole foods and ingredients that are locally sourced and minimally packaged, with little to no waste. 

At Delivery Hound, we get a thrill every time we delivery our locally made, all natural and Australian made dog food. It was always important for Delivery Hound to not only provide a solution to single-use plastic but to be aware of the carbon footprint that surrounds many overseas imported pet foods as well. The fact that Man's Best dog food is made in Australia, is Australian owned and, made using Australian ingredients ticked all the boxes in supplying a true zero-waste dog food.

By reducing packaging waste and supporting local businesses, zero waste dog food is a great way to make a positive impact on the planet.


Benefits of zero waste dog food for your pet.

 Zero waste dog food can provide numerous benefits for your pet's health and well-being. By using whole foods and locally sourced ingredients, you can ensure that your dog is getting a balanced and nutritious diet. This can lead to improved digestion, healthier skin and coat, and increased energy levels. Additionally, by avoiding processed and packaged foods, you can reduce the risk of your pet consuming harmful additives and preservatives. Overall, zero waste dog food is a sustainable and healthy option for pet owners who want to prioritise their pet's health and the environment. 

We use 100% Aussie owned and made Man’s Best Premium Grain Free Dog Food.

Benefits of zero waste dog food for the planet.

 In addition to the benefits for your pet's health, zero waste dog food can also have a positive impact on the planet. By using locally sourced ingredients, you can reduce the carbon footprint associated with transportation and distribution. Additionally, by avoiding processed and packaged foods, you can reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. This can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and preserve natural resources.

You will ingest 202 pieces of microplastic today, tomorrow, and forever. The reality of our plastic crisis is that we have no idea what that’s going to do to our bodies in the long term. 8.3 billion tons of plastic have been produced since the 1950s, using roughly 8% of the world’s oil to make it. Almost 50% of all the plastic in existence was created after the year 2000, and only 9% has ever been recycled.

So the levels of plastic in your body right now, is unprecedented. Given the years of testing a pharmaceutical company has to go through to get a lifesaving drug into circulation, it’s astounding that nobody seems to bother about the effects of having these pollutants in our bodies.

Pet food bags are not recyclable

Of course not, and neither did we, really, until recently.

Overall, Delivery Hounds zero waste dog food is a sustainable choice that can benefit both your pet and the planet.
