Our Furry Friends Come at a Cost

The biggest environmental impact associated with our pets comes from producing meat-based food. Sadly, pets feature high up the list of our planets problems and cats bring added wildlife problem killing up to 200 million wild prey in a single year.

But it’s not just wildlife. 20.8 million dogs and cats consuming just one tin or unrecyclable plastic package of cat food per day results in 7.6 billion containers being manufactured each year, just in the UK. Add to this, another 3.6 billion plastic bags for picking up the estimated 1.2 million tons of dog-poop and then there is the issue of disposing of 200 thousand tons of cat waste.
