So far we've received some great submissions for our Earth Day Photo Contest - here's just one awesome example:

"Franklin and Kodiak go green by hiking not driving, drinking out of rivers and lakes instead of plastic water bottles, and cooling off in icy mountain lakes instead of using the air conditioner!"

We especially love that Franklin and Kodiak avoid drinking out of plastic water bottles! As we now know, plastic is not so fantastic. To help reduce the number of plastic bottles found in landfills, we use them to make  P.L.A.Y.'s super-soft Planetfill® filling. We love other pet product companies that share the same goal. We especially love Earth Rated, they help the planet in two ways; they keep plastic out of our landfills and keep dog waste (and all of the unfriendly bacteria that can make people and other animals sick) off of our lawns, fields, hiking trails... you get the idea.

Each year up to a trillion plastic bags are deposited into our landfills where, scientists estimate, they can take up to 1,000 years to breakdown, and millions still end up in waterways, trees, and in our oceans. But as pet owners, picking up our dog's waste is the responsible thing to do. That's where Earth Rated comes in. With both bio-degradable and compostable bags, you can feel good knowing that you're doing your part to protect the earth from plastic and waste.

For our Earth Day Photo Contest, one lucky winner will receive an eco-friendly prize pack comprised of a P.L.A.Y. pet bed, bathing and grooming products from earthbath, yummy treats from Bocce's Bakery and two Earth Rated dispensers along with over 350 bags (thats a lot of poo!) for a total value of over $350! Make sure to submit a photo of your pup for a chance to win!
