PETA

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organisation in the world. Our entire pet care range is approved by PETA Cruelty Free and our Food and Treats by PETA Not Tested on Animals.

Cruelty Free International

Our Cuelty Free Pledge: HOWND believes that pet care products should be cruelty free. We are proud to be Leaping Bunny approved. A global programme, Leaping Bunny requires cruelty free standards over and above legal requirements.

All of our own brand pet care products are approved under the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny programme, the internationally recognisable gold standard for cruelty free products. We adhere to a fixed cut-off date policy and proactively monitor our suppliers to ensure that our products continue to adhere to the Leaping Bunny criteria. Our supplier monitoring system is also independently audited.

The Ethical Company Organisation

The founding of The Ethical Company Organisation in 2002 was key to the substantial growth in the ethical shopping movement and wider standards of corporate social responsibility. All HOWND products meet the standards of the organisation and we are proud to be listed in the Ethical Shopping Guide and carry the Ethical Company logo on all our packaging.

Environmental Pledge

At HOWND we are committed to caring for our environment, which is why we have taken the time to establish the following environmental policy:

• All our products are 100% vegan, and cruelty-free with all ingredients being derived from ethical sources. This is healthier for the animals being fed and groomed with our products and better for the environment.

• Our hemp wellness treats range is oven baked, and uses 100% natural ingredients and is made with organic hemp.• We make an effort to source as many of our raw ingredients locally as possible in order to reduce our carbon footprint while supporting local manufacturers.

• Our packaging is recyclable.

• Our bowls are made from recyclable polypropylene.

• Our packaging is secure and resealable to ensure that our product stays fresh for as long as possible to prevent wastage.

Naturewatch Foundation

Naturewatch Foundation is a UK registered charity that works tirelessly to improve the lives of animals. Its mission is to end animal cruelty and advance animal welfare standards around the world. We have featured as a selected Cruelty Free brand in the charity’s Compassionate Shopping Guide for many years.

The Vegetarian (Vegan) Society

The Vegetarian (Vegan) Society is dedicated to everything vegetarian and vegan and we are honoured to be members and feature on its pages. It takes significantly less water to produce plant protein than meat. An 8 oz chicken breast takes over 542 litres of water to produce. Enough to fill your bathtub 6.5 times! So we are immensely proud to carry the Vegetarian (Vegan) Society logo on all our pet care and food packaging, and contribute to the clean pet food revolution!
