The Eco in Eco Pet Parcel: Pet, Packaging, Products and Planet

Eco Pet Parcel

Here at Eco Pet Parcel we have two priorities: your pet and the environment. For transparency, we think it is right for us to share how we are operating, so that you know what we’re doing to continue earning the Eco in our name. 

Packaging

It is important for us to get our products to you safely and securely but at minimal cost to the environment. We have carefully considered all elements of our packaging. Our products come in recyclable cardboard boxes. We use recyclable paper Kraft tape and fill our boxes with wood wool. Wood wool is made from shredded timber which is naturally dried. Not only is wood wool biodegradable but is also light which is important as it keeps the weight of your parcel down. Lighter parcels mean less carbon emissions as less fuel will be required to transport your parcel. To be even more environmentally friendly consider reusing the packaging we send to you, maybe for a gift.

Suppliers

Before stocking products from a new supplier we check their eco credentials. It is important that their goals align with our own. We also like to support other local small businesses. Shopping locally reduces carbon emissions, as products aren’t being shipped as far, and this also helps to reduce our overall carbon footprint and yours. The locations of our three main suppliers can be seen below:

Miro & Makauri – Sussex

Green & Wilds – Chippenham

The Dog and i – Weymouth

Products

We pride ourselves on choosing high quality products which are also environmentally friendly. We know all of our products inside out. Our Fallow Antler Chews are responsibly and sustainably sourced from Red Deer or Fallow Deer. They are of the highest quality Grade A and AA only. You will only find antler chews on our website which are traceable and have been naturally shed, many here in the UK in the highlands of Scotland. Our Super Salmon Oil and Fish Nibbles with Salmon are made from salmon sourced responsibly and sustainably. Our Super Salmon Oil is of amazing quality and is actually human Grade A standard. Some of our toys, for example, Barry the Banana are made from suede which is a by-product of another manufacturing process, this helps to reduce waste. Barry the Banana is also 100% biodegradable.

Website

Shopping with the environment in mind has never been easier, on our website you can sort our products by their Eco Credentials. Our current sub-categories include: biodegradable, non-toxic, packaging-free, palm oil-free, paraben-free, recyclable, renewable, responsibly sourced, silicone-free, SLS-free and sustainable. We study all of our products carefully and categorise them by their environmental impact. We are constantly updating the website and categories. If there is a new category you’d like to see added please let us know.

We are doing our very best at Eco Pet Parcel to be green and are continually striving to be greener. We have recently introduced a clearance section to our website so that products which do not meet our high standards are not wasted. If we see potential for our suppliers to improve their operations or products we are making suggestions to them. It is important to remember that being greener is not a witch-hunt. Being greener is about us all making the changes we are able to and helping each other to be more eco aware. Nobody and no company is perfect but hopefully our hard work means you can shop for your pet with a clearer eco conscious. Please let us know if you have any suggestions to make Eco Pet Parcel better, we always love to hear your thoughts.
