  • Does my dog have a carbon paw print?

    We take a look at the carbon paw print our furry friends have on the environment and ways in which we can help to reduce this impact.
  • Companies need to make it easy to be good

    Whilst many people are becoming interested in sustainability, the majority are not willing to make sacrifices for it. Therefore, if we want people to make better choices, then companies need to make it easy for them.
  • The ultimate sustainable packaging option

    There is only one sustainable packaging option. Zero packaging.

  • The problem with compostable packaging

    When it comes to packaging, we all know that we don’t want plastic. It is made from petroleum, takes centuries to degrade (releasing CO2 as it does), and only a fraction of it can actually be recycled. So what next?

    Compostable packaging is growing in popularity. This will biodegrade quickly, and so it isn’t going to pollute our oceans. However, most of it doesn’t actually get composted, and as a result it will rot and produce methane, a powerful greenhouse gas.

  • Should dogs be vegan? That’s the wrong question.

    Previously my position was that dogs are facultative carnivores, so they need some meat, but they don’t need everything to be meat (hence the vegan dog treats). However, Veganuary has made me think more about this question. Now, I hink a better question to ask is "is your dog's diet nutritionally complete?"
  • Should dog treats be vegan?

    It’s Veganuary, and many humans are giving up meat for a whole month. But should dogs be doing the same?
  • Arguing about how to tackle climate change? You need to stop...

    Net zero is going to be a massive challenge. We need some aspects of all the possible solutions to achieve it. So let's not get in the way of someone campaigning for a solution that isn't our favourite. Do your own bit, and don't block others from doing theirs.
  • The most sustainable dog treats out there?

    My mission at BrewBix is to “make it easy to be good”, and create the most sustainable and convenient dog treats. Packaging is a big part of that, and so I’m very proud to announce our new plastic-free, fully recyclable, letterbox-friendly, CARBON NEGATIVE box!
