Why is Wolfworthy Good For the Environment?

Plastic products have become such a normal part of the modern world we forget that our world was essentially plastic-free a single generation ago. Our reliance on mass-produced, handy products such as plastic bottles, plastic bags and plastic packaging has created environmental problems like overflowing landfills, toxic groundwater and plastic debris in our seas and oceans.  

The environmental impact:

    • some man-made plastic products can take up 1,000 years to breakdown.
    • our soil, rivers and streams can become contaminated as this plastic breaks down, entering the food chain.
    • plastic makes up almost 90% of the debris found in our oceans
We have all become used to the 5p charge for plastic carrier bags introduced by the UK government in 2016 in an effort to reduce the vast quantities of plastic entering the environment.  However, plastics used to package the products themselves may pose an even bigger problem.  This is why we have chosen not to use plastic bags for our fine food.

At Wolfworthy we care passionately about your dog's health and well-being, and that includes their environment.  That's why all Wolfworthy bags are made using compostable materials and water-based inks.  Yes! They can be put directly on the compost heap and fed back into the garden.  Our bags are constructed from a paper outer and a special compostable vegetable starch liner.
