Why The Trashless Pet Store

Healthier Pets, Healthier Planet

Many of us strive to implement positive nutritional and environmental changes in our lives but are we doing the same for our furry family members? 30% of all meat consumed in America is for pet food so if you own a pet, you have the power to make a big positive impact on the health of your pet and the health of the planet. Our brands all have the highest quality ingredients that you can actually pronounce and understand, which also help maintain your pet’s immune system, reduce allergies, and vet bills. There are no fillers, by-products, artificial flavors, chemicals, or preservatives. Our customers can feel good about the food their pets are eating and the planet!



The Environmental Impact of Pet Food

Pet food production is responsible for 64 million tons of greenhouse gases each year. For example, a medium size dog has a carbon footprint of 2.1 acres, roughly twice the size of an SUV driven 6K miles per year. And nearly 300 million lbs of plastic pet food/treat bags are discarded each year because 99% cannot be recycled. Until compostable pet food packaging becomes a good option for brands, repurposing the packaging into other products is the only way to achieve zero waste.

Austin’s Only Zero Waste Pet Food Store

Contrary to what many people hope and think, your plastic dog food bags are not allowed in Grocery Store Plastic Recycling Bins and end up in land-fills and our oceans. The Trashless Pet Store will recycle your pet-food bags with  Terracycle, which will repurpose them into products such as dog bowls, leashes, watering cans, etc. Simply put the used bags out front at your next delivery - we will pick them up.



Factory Farming & the Pet Food Industry

Pet food production is responsible for almost 30% of all meat consumed in America and 99% of all meat consumed in America (including pet food) is from factory farms. There are over 1500 pet food brands on the market but only 7 are  G.A.P. certified. The Trashless Pet Store is proud to carry 5 of those brands.

The Trashless Pet Store hopes to change the way our companion animals are fed and our farm animals are raised...for the better.

Our Mission

We share a love and respect for all animals and the planet we live on. We want to help reduce the environmental impact of our furry family members by providing zero-waste packaging and pet food that is sourced from vegan protein, sustainable fisheries and from farms where animals are able to roam and are free from antibiotics and genetically modified feed. Our customers can feel good about the food their pets are eating while reducing their carbon footprint.



Save a Pet, Save the Planet

The Trashless Pet Store is proud to partner with Austin Pets Alive!. APA! saves thousands of animals each year in Austin by adopting them out to good homes and The Trashless Pet Store saves all their food bags from the landfill. Community partnerships like this are possible thanks to our customers. When you purchase products from the Trashless Pet Store you are not only saving your packaging from the landfill and oceans but you are helping us upcycle all of APA’s thousands of bags as well.

How to Transition Your Pet to their New Food

Switching your pet to our high quality brands needs to be taken slowly so please remember to buy your new food no less than a week in advance for transitioning purposes. Follow this guide once you have your new food. Please keep in mind that each animal is different.
