How Carolina Pet Celebrates Earth Day, Every Day!

At Carolina Pet, we pride ourselves not only on the comfort and style of our products but also on our commitment to sustainability. We recognize the vital importance of protecting our environment, and every day, we strive to integrate sustainable practices into all facets of our business and product development.

Nestled amidst the picturesque forests of Prosperity, SC, our factory and warehouse serve as a constant reminder of the beauty and fragility of our natural world. Motivated by our surroundings, we are deeply dedicated to minimizing our environmental footprint and preserving the breathtaking landscapes that surround us.

It is important to us to collaborate with companies whose values resonate with ours. That’s why we exclusively partner with suppliers who uphold rigorous standards in sustainable practices. By joining forces with like-minded partners, we are united in our mission to safeguard our precious forests and preserve them for the prosperity of future generations.

While foam is commonly associated with harmful chemicals, it’s a vital component of our beds. Recognizing this, we’ve taken proactive steps to mitigate its environmental impact. Through a strategic partnership with a supplier committed to innovation, we’ve transitioned to foam inserts infused with natural soy products. This revolutionary approach not only minimizes our environmental footprint but also lessens the strain on finite fossil fuel resources, aligning with our commitment to sustainable practices.

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! 1 pound of our high loft fill diverts 20 plastic bottles from ending up in our land fills! You will know this fiber by its green color. Since opening in 2001, we’ve diverted over 34.8 million bottles from landfills! 

W 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.

Beyond their aesthetic appeal, forests serve as cherished havens for exploration with our beloved pets. It’s our heartfelt desire to preserve these natural sanctuaries for generations to come. That’s why we remain steadfast in our dedication to making environmentally conscious decisions without compromising on quality, style, or comfort. With our line of pet beds, you can trust in premium eco-friendly craftsmanship without the premium price tag, ensuring both your pet’s comfort and the sustainability of our planet.
