April is the proud month of Earth Day! We all want what’s best for the planet and for our dogs’ health. Luckily, Chippin pet treats are high-quality, allergy-friendly, and good for the environment. So, you and your furry friend can celebrate the planet by trying these tasty treats. Here’s how Chippin can make the world a better place.
It Reduces Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Did you know that pet food production creates 64 million tons of greenhouse gases per year? To put it in perspective, that’s the equivalent of driving 13.6 million cars for an entire year. Chippin takes these issues very seriously and they strive to reduce the carbon pawprint.
In fact, this innovative dog treat company chose the name “Chippin” because they believe every dog parent can “chip in” to help the health and happiness of both pets and the environment. 180 million pets in the United States play a big role in the food system and the food choices we make for our pets, which are just as important as the ones we make for ourselves. Chippin strives to have a “pawsitive” impact by creating treats that are equally nutritious and earth-conscious.
It Lowers Carbon Pawprints
With smart and transparent ingredient and protein sourcing, Chippin also creates lower carbon footprints, or should we say pawprints? The “carbon pawprint” consists of all the water consumed, resources used, and greenhouse gases emitted during dog food production. 180 million pets in the United States have a significant impact on the food system, and by eating these snacks, our dogs can help us preserve our planet!
Chippin only uses planet-friendly ingredients, which are sourced from small to medium sized farms in the United States. Many of these ingredients are superfoods that help with aspects like digestion, gut health, allergies, and skin and coat. They are also a great option for dogs with a sensitive tummy!
Here are some of the tasty and healthy ingredients you’ll find in Chippin treats:
- Peanut butter
The two main proteins used are crickets and spirulina. They might seem unusual, but they are over 90% more eco-friendly and more digestible than traditional proteins. The crickets are humanely and sustainably harvested. The spirulina, ecologically grown, is made in a closed-loop water and nutrient recycling system. With Chippin, you won’t have to worry about where your dog’s treat ingredients come from, rest assured, they are top quality!
It Has Eco-Friendly Packaging
Chippin treats and ingredients are healthy and eco-friendly, and even the packaging is sustainable! All Chippin packages are made with post-consumer recycled content, which is stated on the top corner of the bag. So, Chippin is proud to pioneer a BPA-free innovative packaging design!
It Uses Unique Protein Sources
Chippin uses cricket and spirulina proteins. If these unusual ingredients alarm you, there’s no need to fear. While they are more unique than your average treat proteins, they’re just as healthy and less likely to cause allergies. And on top of everything, these proteins are better for your dog and for nature.
Cricket is a complete protein that’s easily digestible and has all 10 essential amino acids for dogs. Believe it or not, crickets also have more omega-3 and B12 than fish like salmon. For every pound of cricket used, zero methane gases are produced and only one gallon of water is needed. Yet, it takes over 2,000 gallons of water for a pound of beef! On average, one bag of Chippin saves 40 gallons of water.
Spirulina is a superfood that’s a great source of omega-3s, beta carotene, and vegan protein. Through photosynthesis, spirulina acts as a carbon sink, which means it requires much less water than terrestrial plants. So, not only are these proteins in Chippin nutritious and tasty for your dog, but they’re much better for the environment.
Chippin treats are not only delicious for your furry friends, but every bag also saves the environment. Earth is the only planet with dogs, so we need to keep it safe! If your canine companion wants to try some tasty Chippin treats, use the code IHEART25 for 25% off your order.
