Urban Wolf Leaves a Small Carbon Paw Print
We are a small sensible company, very conscious, very,
very aware of the environment. We are committed to do our very
best to leave behind the smallest carbon paw print possible, here's
Our packaging is made from recycled paper and with recyclable poly
liners. You can recycle all of our packaging so don't throw
it in the garbage, please recycle it! Our labels and brochures
are printed with soy based ink. We do everything we can to be
We endeavor to use local
vegetables and fruits. When we cannot find locally grown, we
look to Ontario, other parts of Canada and finally the USA.
We never use any products that originate in any third
world country, Mexico, Asia or Africa.
Our ingredients are all air dried except for the some sensitive ones
that are freeze dried, they are not heat treated and can be considered
Products We blend Urban Wolf
in small batches and nothing is out sourced. It is packaged
immediately in air tight bags so it is stable for a very long time
at room temperature, no need for refrigeration or freezing.
Even once opened, as long as it's store it in an airtight container
in a cool dry, dark place it will last indefinitely at room temperature.
We endeavor to produce products that are stable at room temperature,
that do not need freezing, refrigeration or chemical preservatives
to keep them viable. We feel it is very important to maintain
convenience and nutritional integrity of our products as well as limiting
the processing. It's with the simplicity and sound production
methods that help us deliver to you the best and most nutritious whole
food diets for your pet.
This is one way we can all
contribute. Our packaging is completely recyclable so please
don't throw it in the landfill, recycle it instead. At our production
facility we recycle everything that comes in. Even though our
township will not accept our woven poly bags, we don't just throw
them in landfill. Instead we save them and once a year we make
them available to the surrounding communities that can use them for
sandbags when the local rivers flood in the spring. We are continue
to pressure the local township to start collecting these bags for
What Kind of Carbon Paw Print
Is Your Dog Leaving?
Take the time to consider what kind
of Carbon Paw Print your pet is leaving with the food you feed and
then let's all work together to keep them as small as possible!
With Urban Wolf we can guarantee you
will be making a huge and lasting contribution to the environment.
Raw Frozen Dog Foods Leave a HUGE Carbon Paw Print!
We feel that frozen foods leave a huge carbon footprint and we do
not endorse pre made frozen dog foods. These products are often
made with frozen meat that is thawed, blended and then refrozen.
The frozen food must be stored in a freezer until it's transported
via freezer truck to a freezer warehouse or directly to a retailer.
The retailer must keep the frozen food in a freezer until the customer
buys it and takes it home. The customer now must store their
pre made frozen dog food in a freezer until they use it. From
a carbon foot print point of view, this product is leaving a huge
mark on the environment because it has to be kept in extreme temperatures
in it's frozen state. How do we compare?
Kibble Production Leaves A HUGE Carbon Paw Print!
This is a nasty industry. Not just because of the heavy energy
production costs that go into making the 'kibble', but it also uses
thousands of tons of toxins and chemicals during the process.
Their raw materials are all human food waste garbage and these companies
will accept them from any third world country, Mexico, China, Asia
or Africa where they have no standards (this atrocity was played out
with the massive and disastrous pet food poisoning when the conglomerate
kibble companies purchased bulk raw materials laced with melamine,
these raw materials made it past all their quality control checks
and into the food, to the stores and even more shocking to the vet
clinics that sold the food, and into the stomachs of our pets, killing
and disabling many of them). What makes kibble even more insidious
is the fact that what you are getting is actually so nutrient depleted
that it takes 4+ times the amount of kibble to feed as dog as it does
when you make real food such as Urban Wolf. You, the consumer
is getting duped by slick marketing campaigns (ie a recent popular
kibble boasts 70% real meat in it's kibble, a search of their website
reveals no mention of what kind of 'meat' they are referring to.
their marketing just tells proudly boasts it's 70% meat. A deep
search of the company's profile finally leads to the ingredients listed
on another website. What is the 'meat'? It's actually
'meat meal'. I am sorry, meat meal is meat meal no matter what
you try to call it and all meat meal is 100% pure waste garbage, unfit
for a dog to eat. This is deceptive marketing and it's not fair
to the consumer. Back to the carbon paw print kibble mfg's are
leaving. when a dog eats kibble it's not able to digest or metabolize
much of what it's being fed (15% of the meat meal is actually bioavailble
to the dog vs 75% of real meat - these numbers are from the pet food
industry research widely known within the industry). You, the
consumer has to feed more than 4x's as much kibble as compared to
a real food diet like URban Wolf. These companies are contributing
twice to the problem, they force you to purchase so much more food
to satiate your pet and sadly your dogs will never reach the conditioning
or health that it will with a real food diet. No matter how
much of the premium kibble you feed, your dog cannot eat enough to
equal the 75% usable protein that is in Urban Wolf. Your dog
will only get fat on kibble, an Urban Wolf will get healthy, grow
muscle and strong connective tissue. Is it worth it? Not only are
you paying a high dollar & health premium for 'premium' kibble,
your kibble fed dog dog is also leaving a HUGE carbon paw print behind!

Leave Huge Dinosaur Tracks On The Environment?
