Funpak - No, I didn't miss a c ;-)

FunPak Dog Bone Packaging
One product at Global Pet Expo I really liked, even though I don't have a use for it myself right now, is the FunPak dog bone packing material from RNS Packaging. You know all those little squishy-soft thingies that surround electronics and fragiles in many shipping boxes? They come in the shape of a bone.

It might not be the most practical invention in the history of humanity - we already have packing material - but it's cute, and gives that thoughtful extra little touch. I might be an extreme dog lover and a bit loopy compared to some other people, but if I ordered something dog related, opening a box filled with these would sure make me smile.

According to the manufacturer, FunPak is 100% natural and completely biodegradable. They can fill orders from 1 cubic foot to 1 million cubic feet, and from what I hear, more shapes will be available soon. One cubic foot isn't all that much - it would be just the right amount to pack a present!


  1. Getting ahead these days is all about thinking outside the box and those bone packing worms are a perfect example - what pet owner would not love them and talk to everyone they know about them which in the end would result in more customers!

    1. I agree - I think it's a great idea, and they're so cute. I mean, I went out of my way to snatch one up and tell everyone. :-)

      I imagine a box with cute dog bowls or something packed with these, that would be so awesome to open!
