Open Farm Pet Food has officially partnered with Loop, the circular shopping platform developed by international recycling leader TerraCycle, as the first ever pet food participant. The new partnership will introduce consumers to reusable, refillable packaging as part of Open Farm's ongoing effort to positively impact the environment and reduce the use of single use packaging and disposable waste. Beginning immediately, consumers located in select markets can purchase Open Farm Freeze-Dried Raw Dog Food in reusable containers that are collected, cleaned, refilled and reused.
"Sustainability is at the core of everything we do at Open Farm as we continue our commitment to raise the bar when it comes to feeding our pets and caring for our planet," said Isaac Langleben, Co-Founder and CEO of Open Farm. "Joining Loop is an important next step in reducing our environmental impact and is the perfect way to offer consumers a waste free option."
Open Farm continues to lead the industry towards sustainable pet food by disrupting the supply chain and changing the way pet food is sourced and produced. Partnering with Certified Humane, Global Animal Partnership and Ocean Wise to source ingredients from farm to bowl, Open Farm illustrates to the entire pet food industry that animal welfare and preserving the planet can both be accomplished while delivering quality products. In addition, as part of Open Farm's commitment to ethical and transparent sourcing practices, they are the first fully traceable pet food brand that allows pet parents to instantly trace the origin of every ingredient in their bag, to better understand why and where it came from.
