Our contribution to environmental protection - Sustainable food supplements for pets
As a young company, our environment is particularly important to us. We bear the responsibility for ensuring that it is still a place worth living in tomorrow.
Nowadays there are a lot of construction sites concerning environmental protection, working conditions and the conservation of resources. We are a small company but that does not stop us from doing our best.
1) As little plastic as possible
Our outer packaging consists of 100% recyclable cardboard. For reasons of hygiene and food safety, we cannot yet completely do without plastic in our sachets, but we do use a mixture of BOPP and LDPE film. These belong to environmentally friendly plastics, as they burn without residue and are easy to recycle (in contrast to hard plastic). Therefore we ask you to dispose the sachets well-behaved in the yellow bin or yellow bag.
2) Environmentally friendly dismantling
We take our mineral from nature, therefore we are also responsible for its good handling. The quarry of our clinoptilolite is located in Nižný Hrabovec in the east of Slovakia. Here we ensure environmentally friendly mining conditions according to the latest standards.
3) Reduced pollution and odour
Last but not least, our product also helps to reduce the amount of harmful substances released into the environment.
The volcanic clinoptilolite has ammonia-binding and pH-regulating properties (Moser, 2011). It prevents nitrates and ammonium from being leached into the groundwater and prevents emissions into the atmosphere (Buchgraber, 2011). A pleasant side effect of this property of the mineral: It is used primarily in agriculture to reduce the smell of faeces and urine, as this is due to ammonia development (Somitsch, 2011). This effect can also be used in dog breeding or, for example, in closed kennels.
