Committed to the help reduce our impact the planet

We’re always going further for the planet

As a proudly British brand, McAdams has been carbon neutral since 2020. From funding rainforest preservation projects abroad, to supporting reforestation here in the UK - we are going the extra mile to help. All our dry food, wet food, and treat packaging is fully recyclable and McAdams works with Sustainable Advantage, who help businesses adopt new and innovative ways to reduce the impact we have on our environment.

Preserving wildlife habitats around the world

We’ve become carbon neutral by working with global initiatives to save some of the world’s most spectacular forest landscapes. The Southern Cardamom Rainforest project in Cambodia protects tropical rainforests from illegal logging and poaching and has saved 3,000,000 tonnes of carbon emissions every year, while the Kariba Project in Zimbabwe protects almost 785,000 hectares of forest that’s home to endangered wildlife.

Our commitment to recycling

McAdams’ products are packed in boxes that are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), then padded with reused shredded cardboard and sealed with paper tape. All our dry food and treat bags, as well as our wet food trays are 100% recyclable. In 2024 we will introduce our first recyclable freeze-dried bags to complete the range.

Growing our independent, sustainable partnerships

To make it easier for you to recycle we have teamed up with Pets Corner, whose stores will happily recycle your empty McAdams bags for you. Alternatively, you can drop them off at supermarkets that display the recyclable logo number four or check with your local authority about recycling collections.
