REDUCING WASTE THAT GOES INTO LANDFILLS
The typical cycle goes like this: People drink sodas. Plastic bottles get thrown out. Bottles go to landfills. And our planet gets a little bit worse.
Now, we’d never claim that we can solve this problem on our own. But in our own small way, we’re straightening things out.
Here’s how: People drink sodas. Plastic bottles get cleaned and recycled. Bottles are turned into soft PlanetFill® polyfiber for P.L.A.Y. beds. And our planet stays a little bit cleaner.
PAPER THAT’S BETTER FOR THE EARTH
At P.L.A.Y., we keep packaging to a minimum. And the packaging we use is a very special kind.
The tags on our products are made from paper that is certified safe by the Forest Stewardship Council. FSC is the only forest certification system that is supported by all major environmental groups. FSC certification promotes conservation, responsible management of resources and support for communities that are located near forests.
So sure, P.L.A.Y. wants to make sure your pet has the most comfortable, stylish place to sleep, but keeping the planet green and beautiful—well, we think that’s about the nicest thing we can do for you and your pet.
RECYCLE AND MAKE A NEW BED
Here’s another cool way to help the environment. Instead of throwing out that used bed filler or old towel, why not gather old garments around the house and use them as filling for our Fill-a-Bed? Slip a fully packed Fill-a-Bed under our Change-a-Cover and voila your pet will think he’s got a brand new bed and you can give yourself a pat in the back for helping to recycle along the way.
