Natural & Wild + Sustainable
Here's an interesting new NZ product. It's a dog and cat dietary supplement made in New Zealand containing 100% sustainably fished hoki oil & manuka honey marketed by Newflands Limited is contained in a Rockstock Zip-lock Bag with a Rocktak Self-adhesive Label printed by CPS Printing Limited in Auckland on a low temperature Fuji Xerox 560.Apart from the obvious massive carbon footprint of the dog and the cat,which bear no environmental scrutiny at all, the rest all looks pretty good.
Both bag and label are freezer grade (-40°C+) being a criteria for product storage. This is a great example of a supplier making a huge effort to be sustainable and environmental in their ethic with both product and packaging.
Rocktak RPD self-adhesive is made from 81% stone powder + a non-toxic photodegradable resin.
