DO THE RIGHT THING: We leave people, places, and all things better than the way we found it. We know we only have one planet, so our goal is to tread as lightly as possible. WLDKAT never wants the manufacturing of our products to create unnecessary pollution or damage to mother earth and her dwellers. We source packaging material that is made of post-consumer and post-industrial waste (better known to you as: recycled plastics 😊) as much as possible, giving these materials another life. We see the value in using materials that were bound for the landfill instead of using virgin plastics that just might be recycled.
OUR STANCE ON SOURCING:
PCR, PCW and PIW
PCR or PCW is the acronym for Post-Consumer Resin or Waste, and is the fancy technical lingo for recycled plastic that comes from consumer goods. Post-Industrial Waste comes from the materials that are left over after goods are produced. In either case, plastic waste is collected, sorted, and re-purposed to make different types of *new* packaging. This includes ocean plastics, which are post-consumer resins made from plastics that are headed to oceans. Solving the landfill and ocean plastic epidemic lies in awareness. As a company, we’re working to make everyday choices have a healthier impact on this big blue planet.
RENEWABLE / WIND ENERGY
Wind energy is a free, renewable resource, so no matter how much is used today, there will still be the same supply in the future. Wind energy is a source of clean, non-polluting, electricity and we make it our priority to work with factories that use it. Unlike conventional power plants, wind plants emit no air pollutants or greenhouse gases.
Our tubes are a sugarcane-based alternative to conventional polyethylene plastic tubes that are sourced using fossil fuels. Not only are they sourced responsibly but can also be recycled like traditional virgin plastic. This allows us to reduce our carbon footprint and allows you to recycle the packaging.
MADE IN THE USA
Our decision to make the majority of our packaging and product in the USA allows us to limit our carbon footprint, which benefits the entire planet. We know that none of these solutions are perfect, but we’re committed to always taking steps in the right direction.
As we grow and evolve, so will our practices towards a more sustainable mother earth.
