a rubbish truck of plastic is dumped into our oceans
the problem with plastic
More and more plastic is being dumped into our oceans.
It's estimated there will be 12 billion tonnes of plastic waste in landfill by 2050.
That's the same weight as 240 million great danes or 8 billion chihuahuas! 😲
what's all the fuss about?
Most dog treats are found in single-use plastic packaging as it's easy to produce, cheap and durable.
The problem is, single-use plastic can't be recycled and has a devastating effect on our planet and it's wildlife.
denzel has a solution!
Denzel has developed a 100% plastic-free and biodegradable pouch which won't harm our planet 🌍
Our pouch naturally breaks down in 30 weeks, not 300 years like single-use plastics. Well done Denz!
