To help curb reliance on single-use plastics and encourage sustainable business practices for pet food, Canidae, the premium pet food company, today announced the nationwide rollout of Canidae’s first-of-its-kind environmentally-friendly Kibble Refill Stations at participating Petco pet care centers across the country.
The Kibble Refill Stations operate similarly to bulk gravity-feed coffee bean or nuts systems, combined with a reusable zipper bag that eliminates the need for single-use reinforced bags, over 99 percent of which are disposed of in a landfill rather than recycled, according to the Pet Sustainability Coalition.
Pet parents can expect to save up to 45% per pound on their purchases, as opposed to the premium price generally associated with environmentally friendly offerings. For example, four pounds of Canidae Pure kibble from a Kibble Refill Station would save a consumer more than $9 per bag as opposed to a regular, pre-packaged 4-pound bag. The Stations feature two recipes:
Pure Real Salmon & Sweet Potato – a grain-free, limited ingredient diet and Canidae’s most popular premium flavor
Sustain Premium Recipe with Cage-Free Chicken – an overall sustainable option with wholesome grains
