Our Commitment to Sustainability
OUR COMMITMENT TO OUR SUSTAINABILITY
We believe very strongly that every purchase in our daily lives is an opportunity to reduce our own impact. That's why at our headquarters we do everything we can. Here are a few of the products we use and recommend to you:
Tree Free Bathroom Tissue - this works exactly the same as conventional bathroom tissue but it does not use any tree products. Instead the paper is made from a sugar cane byproduct called bagasse. We also use their printer paper and paper towels.
LED light bulbs - have 20% of the operational cost (including energy saving and bulb cost) of incandescent light bulbs.
Instead of using plastic bags for our puppy waste pick ups, we use GorillaSupply pet waste bags. These bags will biodegrade within 12-36 months. Of course we all hope that all of our waste ends up in the designated receptacle but some bags escape. By using biodegradable bags, we can ensure that we are not contributing to the ocean of plastic.
For our compost we use and recommend BioBags. Your home compost lands directly in a compost heap where it decomposes turns into a nutrient rich soil. Since BioBags are compostable they can be dumped with the compost, saving you from a stinky mess.
We love Public Goods products and use them at home and in the office! Each of these products is carefully manufactured with natural ingredients not tested on animals. The bottles are made from plant based materials and they offer refill bags to reduce waste so we can refill our bottles.

Shipping liquid laundry detergent can be expensive and wasteful. So Dropps came up with a fantastic solution; create simple biodegradable, low-sudsing detergent made from plant based materials and shipped in recyclable packaging. We also love that they have a subscription system so you don't have top remember to buy them. Once you figure out how many you need and how often you need to reorder, Dropps will send you exactly what you need when you need it with no wasteful single use plastic. The best part is, you actually save money...
