I use SmartPaks..........super convenient! And SmartPak is green, they use 100% recycled plastic and encourage you to recycle your SmartPaks again! Plus they use recycled cardboard to pack all of their orders.

You are correct, they are green. :)

My supplements come in tomorrow from them, horrah!

If you get a 'Smart' supplement, the ones made by the smartpak company, they are no cheaper in bulk then they are in the packs. Just wanted to add that in!

Not only are the containers they use green - they have shown that the buckets actually contain more plastic than if you add up all of the containers for the month supply.

I get a supplement from SmartPak that is actually cheaper to get them put in the cups than if I bought it in the bucket. I think it must be because they buy it in bulk. And, since I board, it makes sense because I don't have to worry about the BO giving the wrong amount.

I use SmartPak with my Horses and Dogs.

They deliver my dog's heartworm preventitive every month so i dont have to worry about forgetting to give it to them (i know we have all done it in the past, LOL!). I had Dreamer on Smartpaks for a while, but since i don't board my horses (i own my own facility) I decided to buy the tubs of suppliments from them. And they will really ship ANYTHING at a flat rate of like 7 bucks or something like that. They also do custom products and embroidery.

As our facility expands, I might choose to put my own horses back on Smart Paks just incase a boarder tries to get "free samples" of my suppliments.

Oh! and this was great too... my vet perscribed me 50 grams of bute (50 tablets). I went to Smartpak and they put the order through for me and gave me 50 smartpak singles of bute (each containing 1 gram) This was PERFECT for emergencies and whatnot, and this way, you just open the pak and dump it into your horse's bucket. No grinding pills, no wondering how many pills you have left (since its a lot easier to see the lack of paks rather than opening your bute bottle one day and crying because you are out, lol!)

Hope all that info helps ya out. They are a very good reputable company, and their Suppliment Specialists know their stuff!

I use Equisupps.com - which is like SmartPak just cheaper, plus a portion of every order goes towards horse rescue (arabianrescuemission.org). They tend to be cheaper with free shipping on every order still I believe, and will also do custom supplements and blends. For those of you using SmartPak, may be worth checking it out for a price comparison!
