How Sustainable is Little BigPaw ?

Feb 21, 2024

Did you know that the worst meats for carbon footprint are beef, lamb and then pork, which is one of the reasons we don’t use these in any of our recipes!

Ruminant livestock produce methane when digesting their food by (politely put !) belching and waste. Methane is, per unit the most harmful of greenhouse gases and even more damaging than carbon dioxide.

Based on figures from the “Meat Eaters Guide to Climate Change and Health” report, lamb has the highest carbon footprint, producing an average of 20.44kg of Co2 emissions for every kg of meat !

Beef on average produces 5kg fewer C02 emissions per kg than lamb but over three times more than pork. Cattle farming also uses billions of gallons of water and, like sheep, cows produce methane as a by-product

Pork is a better option but that still doesn’t make it eco-friendly. 4.62kg of Co2 per kg comes from pig farming.

Take into consideration the emissions produced transporting the product from the field to your plate. The environmental impact of this varies greatly depending on what country your meat is coming from.  

 To maximise sustainability we use lots of locally sourced, high quality British meat in our recipes. We guarantee continuous high quality and your pet will love you for it!
