The Plastic Problem
Most dog treats come in single-use plastic, tipping millions of tonnes of waste into landfill, whilst our planet faces catastrophic climate change issues.
We won't stand for that, it's time for change.
Denzel's packs are plastic free!
All of our dog treat packaging is 100% plastic-free, biodegradable & compostable. Made from wood-pulp, cellulose and paper sourced from sustainably grown forests.
So you can simply pop our packs in the regular bin and they will break down in 30 weeks in landfill (not 300 years like most plastic dog treat packs).
Buy one, get one tree
For EVERY order placed through our website, we will plant a tree to replace the paper packaging we have used, remove carbon from the atmosphere, fund climate projects around the world with our partner Ecologi and fight global warming.

You will help fight climate change and offset your dog treats packaging whilst removing carbon pollution from the atmosphere.
Why not subscribe and save 20%? We will continue to plant a tree for EVERY ORDER ongoing. Healthy treats, healthy planet.
Who is ecologi?
Ecologi are a non-profit organisation that plant trees & fund the world’s best climate crisis solutions.
They are on a mission to plant 1 BILLION trees! Denzel's are proud to help do our bit to help them achieve this, you can help too! Learn more by clicking here.
It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis and keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5C is to plant trees and restore the world's forest. They are also crucial to preventing ecological collapse.
Our tree planting partner works with 'The Eden Reforestation Projects' who plant millions of trees around the world each month. We are currently supporting their incredible work in Madagascar.
In planting trees for every order of Denzel's healthy treats, we can together offset trees used for our packaging whilst also doing our bit to save the planet. FYI. Your pooch will thank you too!
More info & FAQs
How do I know a tree has been planted?
You will receive an email from Denzel with an attached certificate confirming that we have planted a tree in Denzel's forest on your behalf. You can check it out at www.ecologi.com/denzels. The planting sites are routinely audited by third parties to check the reported number of healthy trees are growing. Eden Reforestation Projects, the largest tree-planting partner, has a brilliant track record of meeting the reported numbers of trees. Please contact them if you want to see copies of these reports.
Where is my tree being planted?
We work with our tree-plating partner Ecologi, to support reforestation projects around the world! By visiting Denzel's forest at www.ecologi.com/denzels, you can view the location of the trees we have planted to date in partnership with these projects.
How much carbon does a tree sequester?
Trees are one of the best tools we have in removing carbon pollution from our atmosphere. All of the trees in Denzel's forest quietly remove carbon from the atmosphere over their lifetimes. The trees you are funding are doing sterling work sucking up atmospheric carbon, and mangrove trees – which make up the majority of our tree-planting activities – are especially capable. Based on scientific research of mangrove forests, we know that a hectare of mangroves can sequester 3,082 tonnes of CO2 over a 25 year life time. Or 308KG per tree.
Is my footprint offset by newly-planted trees?
Not just yet... The trees you’re funding right now are years away from doing their thing. Until they are several years old, your baby trees are not mature enough to sequester carbon in large quantities. Of course – your trees are still out there, quietly sucking up carbon all the same!
Who is checking on my tree, and whether it grew up?
Our planting sites are routinely audited by third parties to check the reported number of healthy trees are growing. Eden Reforestation Projects, our largest tree-planting partner, has a brilliant track record of meeting the reported numbers of trees. Please contact them if you want to see copies of these reports.
Are the trees being planted varied and native species?
Yes! Monoculture forests and non-native species do not fall under the category of responsible reforestation. As one example, at planting sites in Madagascar, The Eden Reforestation Projects are planting over 50 different species, including: Avicinia marina, Rhizophora mucronata, Ceriops tagal, Bruguiera gymnoohiza.
How do we ensure the indigenous are protected?
In order for a planting site to be developed, the native population must have explicitly agreed to the project and must benefit from the project in its entirety. With planting in Madagascar, the project is done with permission from the owners of the indigenous land, in conjunction with the government. Local communities benefit from many aspects of the project, such as 2.4 million work days that have been created, access to fruit harvesting, and many other economic benefits of restoring deforested land.
Are the workers being cared for and paid fairly?
Yes! Eden Reforestation Project’s mission is to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration. They hire people in rural villages in developing countries to grow, plant and guard to maturity native forests on a massive scale. Their “Employ to Plant” methodology results in multiplication of positive socioeconomic and environmental outcomes.
