How Carolina Pet Celebrates Earth Day, Every Day!
There’s more to our products than just comfort & style. We understand the importance of protecting our environment and we do our part everyday by incorporating sustainable practices into every aspect of our business and product!
The Carolina Pet factory and warehouse is located in Prosperity, SC in the midst of beautiful cedar forests. Because of this, we take saving the 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 values that align with ours. Therefore, we only work with suppliers that are certified in sustainable practices. Together, we can protect our beautiful forests for future generations.
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! 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 33,000,000 bottles from landfills!
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.
