Many people have taken proactive steps to reduce their carbon footprint, but what about their pets?

According to a news release from Catit, a Canadian cat food brand, traditional meat production produces more carbon than cars.

In order to help environmentally-conscious pet owners shrink their carbon ‘pawprint,’ Catit is launching a new line of cat food that is made with 92 per cent sustainable, insect-based protein.

Known as Catit Nuna, the recipe incorporates whole grubs, which contain protein, vitamins, omega 6, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, and minerals.

The grubs are ground into flour, so the food looks like regular kibble (and you’ll never have to worry about finding a bug in the bag).
