Recycling solutions company TerraCycle has joined forces with Royal Canin to create a free recycling program for pet food packaging. Pet owners can now recycle their Royal Canin and Eukanuba-branded pet food bags at selected veterinary practices across Australia.
“The majority of all pet food packaging is made from flexible plastic or multi-material packaging. These complex materials are difficult to recycle and frequently not accepted in kerbside recycling,” TerraCycle general manager Jean Bailliard told Vet Practice Magazine.
“It’s amazing to be a part of an initiative that will make a huge difference in creating a positive future, not only for pet owners but also pets.”
Royal Canin has also pledged to donate $1 for every 1kg of packaging returned through the initiative to the Seeing Eye Dogs charity, Australia’s only national breeder, trainer and provider of dog guides.
