WE BELIEVE IN A CLEANER PLANET FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

We believe future generations of people and pets deserve clean spaces to roam and play.

There are many ways we can leave behind a cleaner planet for generations to come. One is ensuring none of our product packaging ends up in landfills.

All Packaging Recyclable by 2025

WE ARE COMMITTED TO OVERCOMING OBSTACLES

80 percent of our current packaging is recyclable

Although 80 percent of our current packaging is recyclable, roughly 20 percent is either recycle ready or not recyclable at this time. This presents a challenge when it comes to achieving our 2025 goal.

Recycle ready
What Does “Recycle Ready” Mean?

“Recycle ready” applies to some of our flexible plastic packaging, primarily used for large dog food bags. Although these materials can technically be recycled, most single-stream recycling facilities do not have the infrastructure to process those materials. As a result, a large percentage of flexible plastic packaging ends up in landfills.

Learn how to recycle your Purina product packaging below.

 

Over eighty percent of Purina products are made with recyclable materials, like aluminum, steel, paperboard and corrugate, all of which are endlessly recyclable.

Plus, recycling aluminum uses less than 1/4 of the energy it takes to produce new aluminum. In 2018 alone, recycling aluminum saved enough energy to provide electricity to up to 8 million homes.
