The carbon footprint of pets is significant. While climate change continues to have real impacts, our approach aims to support teachers who wish to take action, by choosing, every day, to make small gestures that contribute to the protection of the environment.

Choosing KALŪ is a way to reduce waste and opt for local ingredients.

Together, let's change things

At KALŪ, we are convinced that the best way to encourage our customers to make sustainable choices is to offer products designed with the utmost respect for the environment around us.

Thus, we have taken care to select top quality ingredients, locally, in order to prepare our pet food.

Then, we made the choice to offer it in compostable and biodegradable or reusable packaging (with our zero waste option).

With our affordable and accessible solution, you can finally make choices that match your values!

A certified B Corporation

We became a B Corp to reaffirm our commitment to reducing waste, prioritizing local ingredients, reducing our greenhouse gases and more. With this certification, we must report on all aspects of our business in order to confirm the positive impact we have in our community, both human and animal.

Our eco-frinedly packaging!Compostable bags

We have chosen to distribute our products in certified 100% biodegradable and compostable bags. The bags are made of 3 layers: paper, metallic PLA and PLA. Polylactic acid is biodegradable and can be obtained from corn starch. The metallized PLA layer will provide high barrier protection against oxygen and moisture. This bag includes an airtight closure that is also 100% biodegradable and compostable.

It's all in the details

In addition to having chosen eco-responsible packaging, we also opted for the use of labels made of 100% recycled paper, tied with compostable jute cords. Also, when necessary, we use biodegradable packaging shells made from corn, to ensure the integrity of the packages until destination.

Zero-waste solution

With the zero-waste option, you will receive your dog or cat food in a sealed reusable container, which is then collected in store or upon subsequent delivery.

The containers are made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), a high-performance and durable material, with a useful life of several decades. Pails are cleaned according to  human food standards. At the end of their life, fully recyclable buckets (HDPE 2) will continue their life cycle through further processing.
