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 treats, unused food becomes a product that is highly nutritious and darn tasty.

Reducing food waste can be a huge benefit to our ecosystem, decreasing the impact of food production worldwide.

Food Waste Affects EVERYONE

Enough food is thrown away a year to feed half of the United States
  • In the U.S., 63 MILLION tons of the food produced is wasted each year.  
  • Food is wasted every step along the way from the field to consumption:
    • Agricultural production
    • Post harvest
    • Processing
    • Distribution
    • Consumption
  • Fruits, vegetables, and dairy are the greatest contributors to food waste.
  • In addition to wasting nutritious calories, food waste contributes to throwing away precious resources such as water, land, energy, and labor.  It also 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!
