Sustainability Through What We Feed

Great for Your Pup and the Planet

Our dietary choices exert a substantial influence on our environment. Recent research in 2023 illustrates how diets incorporating animal-derived products contribute to environmental challenges characterized by heightened resource consumption and pollution, primarily linked to animal agriculture.

A comprehensive analysis encompassing 1,369 cats demonstrates that those on nutritionally balanced vegan diets manifest superior health outcomes in comparison to their meat-fed counterparts. This revelation underscores the potential for a transition to plant-based diets that meet pets' nutritional requirements, offering a dual advantage of mitigating our ecological footprint (or "pawprints") while concurrently safeguarding their health.

The adoption of plant-based diets not only facilitates the provision of wholesome, animal-free nutrition but also serves as an avenue to enhance the well-being of our pets while contributing positively to the overall health of our planet.

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.

1.149 lbs of woods
1.719 lbs of CO2 equivalent
1.840 gallons of water

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.
