On April 22, we celebrate Earth Day! This is a great time to consider our wonderful planet, how much it means to us, and how we can help protect our environment. Two ways that we can help are reducing waste and supporting pet businesses with sustainable practices.
Sustainability – This practice works within an ecosystem to maintain it’s optimum levels for all beings, working alongside nature, rather than humans mining a resource to the detriment of the environment. Many brands that Treats Unleashed carry keep this in mind when making pet food, treats, and even supplies. Champion Pet Foods, who make Acana and Orijen, use fresh, regional ingredients in all of their foods by working with local farmers. Icelandic+ utilize ingredients that were considered waste in other industries and were difficult to dispose. Now, those can be used for premium dog and cat treats instead. Icelandic+ also uses geothermal based energy (heat that comes from the Earth) to process their treats.
Reducing Waste – Did you know that Treats Unleashed collects all of their expired and returned foods for donation to local groups, such as Bi-State Pet Food Pantry? This keeps these foods out of the landfill and puts them into the hands of local families in need. Treats Unleashed also uses paper bags made from recycled materials, which can support several uses. In fact, we encourage customers to use their sturdy paper shopping bags over and over again.
To celebrate Earth Day in 2021, Treats Unleashed is offering a FREE canvas tote bag for every purchase over $50 between 4/22 and 4/25 in-store and online (or while supplies last, limit one per customer). No need for a coupon, these will be added automatically to every order over $50! These bags have a front pocket for extra storage and make a great option for groceries and beyond! Extra bags can be purchased for $5.99 each – check them out here!
