Every year we like to make sure that we’re not only doing right by the pets we deliver fresh foods to each day, but also by our planet. And this year is no different!
From only using wind-powered energy to make our foods to going landfill-free, we try to make every day Earth Day at Freshpet. Here are some of the sustainability projects we’re committed to this year:
Last year we kicked off our Zero Landfill initiative at our Freshpet Kitchens. By partnering with Sustainable Waste Solutions, we're able to recycle waste that we couldn’t before, and convert the remaining into usable energy. This landfill-free solution is recommended as a “clean, reliable, and renewable source of energy” that “produces electricity with less environmental impact than almost any other source of electricity” by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
Donating Excess Food
As we mentioned, we like to leave no waste behind! Our Kitchens separate any untouched excess ingredients after making our Freshpet recipes and sell these perishable ingredients to other companies that can use them. We also donate our food throughout the year to charitable organizations, shelters, and rescues.
At the Freshpet Kitchens, where we’re hard at work making our foods fresh every day, we are 100% wind-powered. This renewable energy source doesn’t involve the burning of fossil fuels, or cause green house emissions which can be damaging to our air. Take a tour of the Freshpet Kitchens here
