Great for Your Pup and the Planet
Our dietary choices are known to have a direct impact on our ‘footprint’ – the impact that each of us as an individual make on the environment sustaining us. Diets including animal-derived products have been demonstrated to have a higher environmental impact than plant-based diets, due to the energy and resource consumption, as well as pollution generation, of animal agriculture.
In the USA, pets on animal based diets consume one third of all animal meat and byproducts! This is equivalent to up to one third of the environmental impacts, including land use, water use, consumption of fossil fuel and environmental pollution!
It doesn’t need to be this way.
By meeting all of our pets’ nutritional requirements using a plant-based diet we can drastically reduce this negative impact. We can provide healthy, wholesome nutrition without animal-derived ingredients and promote the health not only of our pets but of the whole planet.
Give Forward to the Future of the Planet
Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and wellbeing, and create jobs for social impact. We’re honored to have reforestation through One Tree Planted as an integral part of our business model.
For every purchase you make, a portion of the proceeds will be directed towards supporting a reforestation project in Canada. This effort is geared towards the recovery of areas impacted by large-scale wildfires, the enhancement of forest health through the strategic planting of young, well-placed trees, and the restoration of the natural habitats of Canada's iconic wildlife species. Every dollar donated translates to a tree planted, and each donation has a significant impact.
100% Recyclable Packaging
We believe in being responsible stewards of the environment, which is why we choose to use 100% recyclable and sustainable packaging for all of our products. Our shipping labels, boxes and mailers are made from 100% recyclable materials and printed with sustainable algae ink, a more environmentally-friendly option compared to traditional ink.
Additionally, you might be used to seeing dog supplements coming in jars, but at VIVUS, we use pouches instead of plastic jars to reduce our carbon footprints. Products that come in jars often contain at least 30% air, which means they're essentially shipping a lot of unnecessary bulk.
By choosing VIVUS, you are joining the Vivus Furmily in their efforts to save at least 418 lbs of wood, 742 lbs of CO2 equivalent, and 670 gallons of water every year.
