B Corp

In June 2016, P.L.A.Y. was honored to be awarded Certified B Corp., joining the growing community of more than 1,600 Certified B Corps from 42 countries and over 120 industries working together toward one unifying goal: to redefine success in business. There are only four companies in the pet industry who are Certified B Corp. and we are proud to be one of them!

WHY B CORP?

We became a Certified B Corporation because we want to be part of a larger movement whose values align with our own. We create products that are Better for Pets, People and Planet, and being part of the B Corp community allows us to benchmark ourselves with other like-minded organizations who seek to be better in every way, meeting the highest standards of performance, transparency and accountability. We want to effect positive change on our community, the environment, our employees and all our stakeholders, making decisions that have a lasting and positive impact on everyone around us.

 

WHAT IS A B CORP?

Certified B Corporation

B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.  Individually, B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability, and aspire to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems. Collectively, B Corps lead a growing global movement of people using business as a force for goodTM.

B Corps believe:

  • that we must be the change we seek in the world
  • that all businesses ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered
  • that, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all
  • to do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are each dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations

WHAT MAKES US A GLOBAL LEADER?

Environment – we are serious about helping the environment and go above and beyond to make greater progress toward greener business practices. Our products are filled with PlanetFill®, a certified safe and eco-friendly polyfiber made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. To date, we have saved close to three million bottles from going into the landfill. We use minimal packaging where possible and FSC certified paper in all our packaging and hangtags. We are also Gold Certified by Green America’s Green Business Certification program. Learn more about our Green Goals here.

Workers – we pay all our employees equitably and fairly, and make every effort to ensure that every employee at P.L.A.Y. feels like they are part of a family. Yearly performance reviews are conducted using a transparent measure and in addition to a competitive base salary, employees are entitled to a yearly discretionary bonus, generous paid time off program, sick leave and health benefits.

Community – we aim to effect positive change to our community and actively give back through various giving back programs like our Warm Bellies Initiative with the Petfinder Foundation donating beds to homeless pets in need, contributing 2% of all sales from our Under the Sea and Bugging Out toy collections to the International Fund for Animal Welfare, donating 10% of all sales from our Mustache Bed (20% during the month of November) to help ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer, and awarding our Scholars Helping Collars scholarship annually with the goal of raising awareness and promoting animal protection among our youth. In addition, we host adoption events at our headquarters with Muttville Senior Dog Rescue twice a year and regularly give back to many groups and charities across the country. Learn more here.
