🌎 We are transitioning to Plastic-Free Packaging. It's a process that may take some time, please bear with us. Thanks! 🐶
With our new pet-inspired art box you can do it easily and in a fun way!
You may be asking yourself: Why a mailer box instead of a regular packaging?
Lets face it; when you receive product on a regular packaging, what do you usually do? You open the box, take the product out and throw away the packaging.
We truly encourage the reuse / repurpose of products, what we want with a sturdy material is that you find a second life for the box. But who want to have an ugly box at home? That's why it has a beautiful pet-inspired design made by an artist.
So, how about a storage box for your kiddo's Legos? Or, a place to put your keys when you get home? Overwhelmed with tons of screws all over your house? You have your answer now. Cardboards can be placed in the refrigerator, even in the freezer without any problem, so you may also find a use there for the box.
We would love to see how you're repurposing it! Send us your pic in a private message to IG, we'll be happy to repost it! @makondopets
What exactly is compost?
Well, ‘compost’ is actually an umbrella term used to describe the process of recycling organic material.

We encourage our customers to include the pouches in their home compost. Our compostable packaging will decompose in a reasonable time and is non-toxic - resulting in healthy compost to regenerate the soil.
Due to differences in climate and individual home compost bins, time to decompose may vary. The speed and efficacy of composting are largely determined by factors such as: local climate, season, carbon-nitrogen mix, and air circulation.
Unfortunately, like regular food waste, compostable products will not compost in a landfill. Composting requires the correct combination of materials, oxygen, heat, and moisture. Landfills are bad for the planet and do not provide the right environment for healthy decomposition.
Home Compost: 180 Days / Industrial Compost: 90 Days
* Results in home compost systems may vary.
Let's say you reused the box to store your child's Legos, but after a while it got damaged due to wear and tear, well it's time to easily recycle.
Remember, our pet-inspired art box uses odorless water-based inks, it produces zero hazardous air pollutants. It is made mostly from recycled material, AND, it's 100% recyclable.
Why should you recycle the box?
TIP: Is better to collapse the box; most recyclers prefer that boxes are flattened to save space.
We are really happy that some of our solutions already come in sustainable packaging and shipping supplies, however there are still many others that still come in plastic bottles.
In the meantime we ask you to make a little effort and recycle the bottles which are made of HDPE 2, a plastic that is considered one of the "safest forms of plastic".
Is HDPE 2 plastic reusable?
Plastic number 2 can be reused without any harm. The durability and reliability of HDPE 2 make it efficient to use in the manufacture of various items like: Sturdy bottles for cosmetics and household cleaner.
