Ever since we started out in 2011, our aim has always been to try and be as environmentally friendly as possible. Rather than source our ingredients based on who can supply us at the cheapest price, we have always tried to support some of the other fantastic local businesses in the North East like The Inverurie Green Grocer and Marshalls Farm Shop. The added bonus of this strategy is that we also get some top quality ingredients to put into our dog treats.
The packaging we use is environmentally friendly and even the electricity which powers WowDog HQ comes from renewable sources.
Over the last twelve months we’ve noticed a marked increase in the number of Zero Waste Shops who have been in contact with us like the wonderful Butterfly Effect in Insch who sell our dog treats individually.
This got us thinking about what we could do to try and be more environmentally friendly, and we started to trial bulk bags of dog treats and some of the events which we attended last year (which seems like a long time ago!).
These bulk bags contain 1Kg of dog treats which works out about the same as seven of our standard bags of dog treats and are packaged in a biodegradable bag.
As they proved to be a hit with our Customers, they are now available on the WowDog website where you can choose your favourite flavour and pick up a bag.
