We asked one of our long-term customers, Petgood, to share some insights on how the Prime Penguin Platform allows them to make conscious decisions regarding their fulfillment process in ways that benefit their sustainability work. Read on to learn more about all the good things Petgood does for the environment, and the many ways in which Prime Penguin makes it easy for e-commerce businesses to reduce their environmental impact and enforce sustainable logistics.
Petgood and sustainability
We are driven by reducing our four-legged family members’ climate impact and global paw print. — Petgood
It was the realization that pets are responsible for more than 25% of global meat consumption, making them an unnecessary and unfortunate burden on the environment, that sparked the initial idea for Petgood. With a passionate and equal love for animal and planetary welfare, it fell upon the shoulders of the founders of Petgood to once and for all revolutionize the pet food industry. They set out to develop their own brand of dog food, packed to the brim with nutrition, quality vitamins, and essential fatty acids – all procured either from plant-based sources or from insect-based protein. The result? An innovative brand of pet food that is not only healthy and nutritious but requires significantly fewer resources compared to traditional animal protein sources. In fact, the insects used by Petgood cause a whopping 94% fewer greenhouse emissions, take up 93% less farming space, and consume 92% less food and 80% less water compared to meat-bearing animals. Pretty pawsome, right? To top it all off, in order to further cut down on resources and minimize food waste, each Petgood order is tailored to the customer’s unique needs.
In addition to their revolutionary pet food, Petgood makes sure to always make the environment a top priority in everything they do. Some of their sustainability strategies include (but are not limited to):
- All Petgood products are manufactured in Europe to reduce transport-related emissions.
- All Petgood products should be made using organic ingredients whenever possible.
- Recycled or recyclable materials are used for packaging whenever possible.
- When available, Petgood products are shipped using sustainable delivery options.
