WHAT'S UPCYCLE?

 

The Power of Upcycling

Upcycling is the process of creating a product of great value out of a product that would have otherwise been wasted.  In the case of our treasured treats, this product is highly nutritious and darn tasty.

Estimates show that over 50,000 tons of food is wasted in America every year. To break that down into something every dog owner would understand.....that could fill over 420 million poop bags!!!  That's a lot of scooping people!  Reducing food waste can be a huge benefit to our ecosystem, decreasing the impact of food production and consumption worldwide.

OUR PETS ARE LEADING THE MOVEMENT TOWARD A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE!

Global Food Waste Affects EVERYONE

BY ELIMINATING JUST A QUARTER OF OUR GLOBAL FOOD WASTE, WE COULD FEED 870 MILLION HUNGRY PEOPLE AND PUPS ALIKE.
  • Approximately 1.3 billion tons of food produced for human consumption is wasted globally every year!
  • Food is wasted every step along the way of taking product from the field and beyond:
    • Agricultural production
    • Post harvest
    • Processing
    • Distribution
    • Consumption
  • Fruits & vegetables are the greatest contributors to food waste.
  • In addition to wasting nutritious calories, food waste contributes to wasted resources such as water, land, energy, labor, and needlessly contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and global warming.

Good thing every 12 bags of Shameless dog treats saves 1lb of food from going to waste!
