On the eve of our favorite holiday, Earth Day, we are talking a lot about our carbon paw print. Planet Dog was founded as an eco-friendly company and we are constantly trying to do our part to make this planet a better place for us and our dogs.
Planet Dog is a founding member of the Pet industry Sustainability Coalition (PISC) and our Co-CEO, Stephie Volo, recently joined the Board of Directors. This month we had PISC and Natural Capitalism Solutions here, at our headquarters, to talk about MORE that we can do to be more sustainable.
One initiative we started earlier this year, was packing and mailing some of our products in paper bags, instead of boxes. By doing this we make less waste, they ship in smaller size packages and our customers have really appreciated them. The bags create less waste in their stores and homes, the products arrive in great condition and we have heard lots of great ideas on how they can reuse the bags.
We would love to hear what you are doing at home or in your shop to reduce your carbon paw print! Tell us in the comments.
