Humboldt Pet Supply
Healthy & Environmentally Responsible Pet Products
HUMBOLDT PET SUPPLY recognizes the beauty and fragility of our planet. We are doing our best to tread lightly in every aspect of our company. This philosophy is intrinsic to our lifestyle. We strive to recognize EVERY impact we make in our energy use, conservation, packaging, purchasing, and shipping.
ENERGY USE in our building is reduced by utilizing passive solar technology as well as having the most up to date energy-efficient lighting, temperature control, and equipment. We are looking forward to being able to substantially further reduce our carbon footprint with the installation of our newly approved solar power system!
CONSERVATION of paper is handled by using recycled paper printed on both sides and shredding used paper for package filler for shipments. Any paper we cannot reuse is recycled and used for a green building program in our community. Newsprint, plastic, plastic shipping bags, print publications and cardboard are all recycled. We are fortunate to have a local agency that employs people with disabilities to take our older shredded catalogs and marketing materials to reuse.
PURCHASING our products from manufacturers that use a holistic approach to the health of our furry friends as well as to our planet is our goal. Bamboo, hemp, natural, and organic are our foundation. We continue to discover an array of fabulous local and nationwide manufacturers committed to providing safe and environmentally conscious products, and we're proud to provide our community with alternatives to conventional pet products.
PACKAGING materials are a mix of biodegradable, recycled and natural fibers that we hope are also pleasing to the eye.
OFFICE SUPPLIES used in our facility are all recycled products, from printer cartridges to toilet paper.
