Seeking Sustainable Pet Food Options

The pet food industry is big business—we spend about $25 billion on it every year, with about the same caloric value as all the food eaten annually in France.  Advertising has tried to convince us that our pets can’t possibly live healthy lives without.

Our Pets have a Carbon Paw Print, Too

We Americans love our pets, and our lives are deeply enriched by their presence.  Together, we care for some 163 million dogs and cats—and they have their own unique carbon paw prints.  The most important contributor is the food we feed them.  Because so.
