Otis here. I’d like to take you for a jog with Planet Dog, a partner in play. We are proud to carry their Recycle line of toys, and not just in our mouths.
Waste Not, Want Not
Here at Chopper & Otis, we sniff out the best products that line up with our goal of making the world a better place. That’s why we wanted to sell Planet Dog’s Recycle toys.
The Recycle line is made with the returned or defected toys. Planet Dog grinds up the toys along with leftover toy mix from the injection molds. These leftovers are mixed and molded to make the Recycle toys. This truly meets the three Rs we love at Chopper & Otis: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
To put the Recycle Toy manufacturing process in dog terms, it’s like when your second pup finishes the kibbles your first pup spilled. It definitely reduces how much mess lands in our garbage can when the kitchen is swept. It’s also like remixing the leftovers for a new meal. (Guess which one of us is the regrinder after meals.)
Planet Dog really reduces waste with this regrind process, keeping the environment safe. The oceans and environment are filled with garbage. Planet Dog Recycle Toys are the perfect product to help with the planet and reduce our carbon pawprint.
Do-Gooders Doing Good
Chopper and I like working with companies that walk the walk, not just ones that talk the talk. The do-gooder nature of Planet Dog is a good fit for our need to make the world a better place.
Planet Dog incorporated in 1997, leading the pack in designing and developing eco-friendly products. We are head over heels for their philanthropic efforts as doing good is built into the core of the business.
Planet Dog is a founding member of the Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC). PSC encourages social and environmental sustainability in the pet industry.
PSC offers education on improving sustainability. Through classes, case studies, events, online tools and webinars, PSC impacts how pet products are made. They want the best for your best friend and the planet.
Planet Dog also practices what they woof in their Planet Dog Campus and at the Company Store. They participate in curbside composting. Shipping boxes have been replaced with paper bags for reduced shipping weight and waste. Eco-friendly paper stocks and inks are used in promotional materials.
For the Love of Dogs
One of our favorite things about Planet Dog is their dedication to dogs. Their Recycle make toys that get tails wagging, wanting to provide fun for you and your best friend. Reduce, reuse, rewoof with Planet Dog’s fun products.
Until next time--
