Our 1% Promise
Running a sustainable company is more than mitigating our environmental impacts. Yes, that’s critically important to us, as is the treatment of our employees, our role in the community, conducting ethical corporate governance, and ensuring a world-class supply chain code of conduct. As such, we proudly dedicate 1% of our annual sales to like-minded organizations, industry stewardship, and mission-driven efforts that preserve and enhance the quality of life for animals, people, and the Earth.
Ensuring a Good Life
We are committed to the fundamental aims of the Five Freedoms for animals, with its focus on preventing unnecessary suffering while maintaining physical health and enabling behavioral freedom. But we also know that preventing pain, suffering, or other negative experiences is not enough. For us, it’s the emotional wellbeing of an animal that is the key indicator of its welfare. That’s why in 2020 we’ve embraced the 5 Domains of animal welfare. The 5 Domains model provides us with a systematic and structured way to describe the welfare of an animal’s emotional wellbeing. We only work with partners that provide all their animals good nutrition, a safe environment, healthcare when needed, and the ability to act as they would in the wild, all which lead to positive emotional wellbeing and a life well lived.
It’s estimated that 300 million lbs of plastic pet food & treat bags are generated each year with 99% not being recycled. That’s why we’ve partnered with the Pet Sustainability Coalition and Pet Food Experts Distribution to reduce landfill waste and plastic released into the environment. Together, we’re working to support packaging & recycling technologies and the establishment of programs to collect plastic pet food bags for recycling. We call it Flex Forward.
No company is perfect, including Earth Animal. We’re ok with that because at the end of the day, it’s more important for us to be perfectly truthful. We believe in being open, honest, and transparent about everything we do and make, including what ingredients we use and where they come from. And along this journey, we learn, improve, and find ways to be better, as we always do. Because that’s how you'll always know you can trust us.
We strongly believe in giving back to the world. That’s why we make a charitable contribution every single day, great or small, and always find ways to support organizations and their mission to preserve and enhance the quality of life for animals, people, and the Earth. For all of us at Earth Animal, nurturing our community and bringing people together around a shared love for all Earth’s animals is why we exist.
...what goes around comes around. It is our truth. That’s why we dedicate 1% of our sales to social & environmental impact programs and organizations that preserve and enhance quality of life for animals, people, and the Earth.
"These chews are so well liked by my dogs…they absolutely love them. I am a huge fan of chemical-free, grass-fed products for my animals, and I am so aligned with Earth Animal’s mission. Thank you for offering animal lovers such healthy products for our four-legged creatures!"
This is the best product I could have bought for my little dog – Alfred. The best part is no Vet bills. Just a clean bill of health. Thank you so much.
"For our 13 yr labrador baby with Sundowners…this was the only product to get her back in bed with us & sleeping through the night. It’s really a blessing."
