Three things to know to be a more eco-conscious pet parent.

Fact 1: The pet food industry produces 64 million tons of carbon dioxide a year.

That's the equivalent of driving 13.6 million cars a year. It's also more carbon dioxide than every single person in Alaska, South Dakota, and North Dakota produces. Combined.


The carbon pawprint (AKA the environmental impact of our pets) is real.



Fact 2. It takes 2000 gallons of water to produce 1lb of edible beef.

It also takes 570 gallons of water to produce 1lb of edible chicken. 


For comparison, the average bathtub holds 42 gallons of water.


1lb of beef = filling 47.6 bathtubs.


1 lb of chicken = filling 13.5 bathtubs. 


That's a lot of water.



Fact 3. Eco-options exist

Beef and chicken pet foods are the most common offerings, but they aren't the only ones. Chippin makes cricket, algae, and fish-based foods that reduce the carbon pawprint while keeping mealtime nutrient-rich and delicious. Cricket, algae, and fish are packed with protein, omega 3s and gut health benefits. 

Join thousands of pet parents that made a switch to eco-conscious options. It’s good for your dog, the planet and everything that lives on it.
