Your pet, of course! It’s not always easy being green, but at Petplan, we believe it’s definitely worth it. We’re committed to helping animals and the earth by reducing our carbon paw prints. From less paper at the office to more natural care for our pets, Petplan’s green initiatives continue to spark media interest. The latest report, published on the AMEX openforum gets our culture right; we’re a Lean, Green Pet Insurance Machine.

And nobody knows this better than our pets. Whether they’re visiting our pet-friendly office or living it up at the dog park, we’ve got our pets living greener than ever. Move over plastic scoop bags, the green machine’s got something better. Check it out!

Bulk Up.  Fresh, local, nutritious foods and treats not only protect your pet’s health, but the earth as well.  Find a local resource you trust and buy in bulk to cut down on packaging and gas emissions on your way to the store.

Get in Gear.  Organic fabrics bring cozy comfort to your pet’s accessories and bedding. Choose top quality products made from recycled or sustainable fibers for a greener getup.

Mr. Green. Whether it’s your pet himself, or the mess he makes, let’s face it, you’re doing a lot of cleaning. Why not try earth and pet-safe products for all the dirty jobs? Pick grooming products made from natural ingredients without perfumes or additives that may bother your pet’s senses. And when it comes to cleaning, pass on the sulfates, phosphates or chemicals in favor of earth-safe alternatives.

The Poop on Scoop Bags. If it’s plastic, it’s landfill, no matter what’s inside. Join the pet care revolution. Choose bio-degradable bags to scoop responsibly.

Litterific! Now your kitty can spare the landfill last week’s litter with a flushable alternative featuring highly absorbent proteins and fibers made from natural corn. The finished product is an odor-controlling, clumping, dust-free litter box experience modestly called the World’s Best Cat Litter.
