Honoring America’s National Parks with the Pendleton Pet Collection

Carolina Pet Company is the exclusive licensee of the iconic Pendleton® Woolen Mills “Pendleton Pet Collection.” This year, we have been celebrating the National Park collection with a new email and social media campaign highlighting a different National Park. This campaign will be promoting the Pendleton Pet National Park Collection with a feature story every month starting with Mount Rainier National Park in Washington state and traveling across the country ending the campaign by featuring Acadia National Park in Maine later in the year.

The National Park Pet Collection was developed by Carolina Pet, inspired by the colors and design elements of Pendleton’s home collection. The iconic patterns are scaled to fit pet beds, collars, leashes and jackets that compliment Pendleton’s home assortment. The collection calls on the inspiration of eight popular National Parks.

A percentage of proceeds from the sales of the Pendleton Pet Collection go to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s National Parks. These funds support two special landmark-restoration projects, the restoration of the historic lobby of the Many Glacier Hotel in Glacier National Park, which was completed last year, and now the preservation and accessibility of the Historic Grand Canyon Train Depot in Grand Canyon National Park.

“Carolina Pet is proud of being part of this effort to help protect these American Treasures, our National Parks,” says Carolina Pet owner Edward Bobowski.

How Carolina Pet Celebrates Earth Day, Every Day!

The Carolina Pet factory and warehouse is located in Prosperity, SC in the midst of beautiful cedar forests. Because of this, we take the saving environment seriously making sure that everything we can do to eliminate waste, we do, to protect these scenic views for years to come.

It is important to us that we partner with companies that have the same values as we do. Therefore, we only work with suppliers that are certified in sustainable practices. Together, we can protect our beautiful forests for future generations.Soy based foam

Foam is full of harmful chemicals and, unfortunately, our beds use quite a bit of foam. However, we have partnered with a supplier that replaces the harmful CFC chemicals in our foam inserts with natural soy products. This eliminates our environmental footprint and reduces the energy demand on quickly depleting fossil fuels.

 

In addition to foam, many of our beds feature a high loft fiber pillow fill. Our fills feature our trademarked MemoryFiber™, a 100% recycled fiber derived from plastic bottles! 1lb of our high loft fill divers 7 plastic bottles from ending up in our land fills! You will know this fiber by its green color.

In addition to our MemoryFiber™ we decrease waste in our manufacturing process by recycling unusable materials in our factory. Namely the fiber used in our Purr Pads and Kitty Kuddler. We make these items in our domestic factory in Prosperity, SC. The material left after we cut what we need would normally just go into the garbage, and then the landfill. However, we shred this extra fiber and use as fills in our pet beds.

The forests are not just beautiful places to look at; we love exploring the woods with our pets and we want to make sure they stay as long as possible. Therefore, we are committed to making earth friendly choices without sacrificing quality, style and comfort. With our pet beds, you can expect premium eco-friendly products, without the high, premium prices.

Zola Hosts BYOP(uppy) Event Featuring Carolina Pet Beds!

Weddings are happy occasions that should include the entire family, even your furry best friend! This is exactly what Zola thought when they hosted their first ever BYOP(uppy) party last month. If you aren’t familiar with Zola they are everything you could ever need for wedding planning; from creating your registry to setting up your wedding website, to customizing your invitations. Their motto is, “We will do anything for love.”

Zola BYOP(uppy) Event

The idea behind their BYOP event is to make registering for wedding gifts a fun occasion that the entire family can participate in. The event was held in late March at their New York City location. One was able to shop hundreds of top registry gifts perfect for you or your pup, including Carolina Pet products! Plus guests enjoyed Ollie dog food tastings and a custom photo booth.

Because we believe dogs are an important part of the family, we were totally excited about the idea behind this event! We donated beds from both our Carolina Pet and Pendleton Pet Collections along with matching collars, leashes and wearable to set the stage for the event. These made great for photo ops and gave customers a chance to experience the quality of our product first hand.
