Retailer Involvement in Flex Forward

During the pilot, independent retailers will encourage their customers to bring back all types (regardless of brand) of flexible plastic packaging including food and treat bags and place them in Flex Forward bins conveniently located in-store.

**Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we are delaying the launch of our pilot program in order to concentrate on supporting our retail partners the best we can.  When the threat has passed, we will be thrilled to continue with our ground-breaking pilot project. We thank you for your interest and we encourage you to sign up for updates below.**


The steps are simple.

After your store’s bin is full of plastic packaging, Pet Food Experts will collect packaging from retailers during their normal delivery route therefore minimizing additional transportation miles. Collected bags will be stored at a single distribution center where it will be weighed and then shipped to our recycling partner.

Our recycler partner will grind down the collected packaging into pellets that can be recrafted into products that will be delivered to animal shelters and rescue groups across the country.
