Stella & Chewy’s is committed to understanding and managing our social and environmental impact to do our part in caring for the future of our people, pets, and the planet.


Key To Our Values

One of our core values is RUN WITH THE PACK, emphasizing our belief that a pack is stronger when all its members work together. This principle is paramount as our industry continues to strive for more sustainable business practices because it will take all of us working together for significant change to happen at the pace that we need it to. We have partnered with the Pet Sustainability Coalition to ensure we are well-informed of the latest sustainability tools and resources to best push ourselves to continuously improve on our initiatives and encourage the entire industry to implement more sustainable business practices. It’ll take the whole pack, but we are stronger together.

Thoughtful Sourcing

We are committed to ensuring what goes in our products is responsibly sourced. For instance, our frozen and freeze-dried product lines use animal protein that is always free of any added hormones or antibiotics, cage-free poultry, grass-fed beef, wild-caught fish, and 100% certified organic fruits and vegetables

How2Recycle Partners

How2Recycle Partners

The packaging for our Freeze-Dried Raw products can’t be recycled in your curbside recycling bins, but they can be recycled at local retail stores where they collect plastic grocery bags for recycling. Simply take your empty package to the nearest eligible retail store and drop it in the plastic bag recycling bin. Even if you purchased the packages online, you can still take them to any retail store with a plastic bag recycling bin.

How It Works

How It Works
  • Curbside

    Check with your municipality to determine which recycling numbers are accepted with curbside pickup. Our new packaging will be a recyclable #4 (LDPE) or recyclable #2 (HDPE)

  • Store Drop-Off

    Packaging with the How2Recycle label can also be dropped off in select stores to be recycled. Under current circumstances with COVID-19, please continue to adhere to social distancing recommendations and hold onto your bags to drop off at a later time or see if your local store is collecting bags in an alternative way.
