Sustainable Gift Shop
At Pet Obsessed People we believe in taking responsibility for our impact on the planet.
While the most sustainable and eco-friendly option will always be to buy nothing, let's face it — where's the fun in that?
Doing good for the planet doesn't have to mean sucking all the joy out of life. We want to make it possible for you to make responsible purchases without sacrificing creativity, quality, or beauty.
That's why at POP we strive to make sure our products are as sustainable and friendly to the planet when possible. Here's how:
we invest responsibly:
We bank with the Clean Energy Credit Union to ensure none of our business proceeds are used to fund fossil fuels.
Our materials are sourced responsibly and ethically when possible.
- Our socks are made from eco-friendly FSC-certified bamboo fabric, which helps reduce water waste and uses fewer resources than cotton.
- We only use eco-friendly packaging that is recyclable, fully biodegradable, or compostable.
- All our labels and packaging stickers are printed on compostable or recycled materials.
- Our fun, illustrated stickers can be ordered as recycled paper (but we get a vinyl option is needed for when you need water resistance to last longer)
- Our tote bags are printed on demand on 100% organic cotton.
- Our cards are printed on 100% recycled paper.
- Our shirts are Bella and Canvas, who's garments are designed, dyed and cut in Los Angeles with virtually zero waste. From solar-powered and paperless warehouses, to efficient dye machines that use 7x less water than the average clothing manufacturer.
We strive to choose sustainable materials and manufacturers whenever possible. While some of our options have less sustainable alternatives, such as vinyl stickers, we are working hard to grow and provide better more eco-friendly options as we are able.
our environmental impact:
- Our office at POP is powered by solar energy, and our printers are ink efficient.
- All shipping is carbon neutral.
we give back:
- You have the option to plant a tree with each order
- We donate a portion of our proceeds to charity — so you can feel good about supporting a cause that matters to you when you purchase from us.
Nobody's perfect. We hold our hands up and admit we still have a way to go in terms of improving our sustainability practices.
But we're committed to constantly improving and doing our best.
We're always looking for ways to minimize our impact and make more conscious decisions about how we run our business. We hope that, together with your help, we can make a difference.
Our Earth Positive Promise means that with every step we take in growing the business, we strive to make sure it's a step in the right direction. A step that reduces our environmental footprint, creates positive change, and contributes to a more sustainable planet.
Thank you for being part of this journey with us.
