THERE’S NO SHAME IN LOVING YOUR PETS. IN LOVING THEM LIKE FAMILY. IN SPOILING THEM ROTTEN.
There’s no shame in wanting the best for their health. In caring as much about your pet’s food as you care about your own food, and every little thing that’s baked into it.
There’s no shame in wanting a better world for them, too. In wanting a better, more sustainable place to play that eats into less resources and pays more forward. Not just for your pets, but for all pets. And all people.
As a matter of fact, we want the same things. Because we love our pets shamelessly, too.
We rescue food, not waste it. Because the more we upcycle, the less impact we make on the environment. So as our pets eat healthier, our world becomes healthier, too.
At Shameless we create a delicious product out ingredients that would have otherwise been wasted—that's called Upcycling! Imagine a farmer’s leftover pumpkins after Halloween, apple pulp from a cider press, or lobster shells from a cannery. In the case of our treats, this unused food becomes an ingredient that is highly nutritious and ridiculously tasty.
FOOD WASTE AFFECTS EVERYONE
DID YOU KNOW? 63 MILLION TONS OF FOOD ARE THROW AWAY EACH YEAR. THAT'S ENOUGH FOOD TO FEED HALF THE U.S.A!
Food is wasted every step along the way from the field to consumption:
- Agricultural production
- Post harvest
Shameless Pets focuses on rescuing ingredients from agricultural production, post harvest leftovers, and food processing. Fruits, vegetables, and dairy are the greatest contributors to food waste and where we focus our efforts.
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.
REDUCING FOOD WASTE CAN BE A HUGE BENEFIT TO OUR ECOSYSTEM!
