The First Sustainable Packaging Event in the Pet Industry

UnPacked is a fully-virtual, action-oriented event dedicated to bringing together sustainable packaging experts and suppliers, as well as pet industry brands, manufacturers, and retailers, to learn more about one of our industry’s largest issues. We aim to unpack the ever-changing, quickly-developing details around packaging through world-class education. We will also provide resources and tools that will help us improve and advance sustainability of packaging in the pet industry to further decrease our overall waste footprint.

“The Pet Sustainability Coalition's virtual events not only provide an impressive amount of useful and applicable information but they also give you the impression of being in the company of coworkers and friends! The virtual exhibition was the best I have ever experienced. The educational sessions where well placed and paced reducing the amount of fatigue and the break-out sessions were with small interactive groups, conducted professionally, with friendly and knowledgeable facilitators. Worth the extra time to participate."

Jeff AlixGlobal Head of Business Development, Veramaris
