Be a Sustainability Superhero with your Furry Sidekick
Your dog is special, unique; you may say they are one in a million! Would you believe they are one in over 90 million dogs – and that’s in the U.S. alone?
All of those good boys and girls have to eat, and crafting pet food uses tons of our planet’s resources: water, livestock, and packaging. (Literally tons!) That includes dog snacks, too. Chippin dog treats has a sustainable dog treat solution.
Chippin Dog Treats: Reducing the World's Carbon Pawprint
Pets consume 30% of the world’s meat.
80% of U.S. water is used for food production.
Pet food creates 64 million tons of greenhouse gases.
Using all of these resources to craft pet food is what Chippin calls the Carbon Pawprint. There are ways we can minimize our pets’ carbon pawprint! A great way to start are buying food and treats made from sustainably sourced plants and protein.
Sustainable Dog Treats Using Cricket Protein
Chippin is a collection of premium, all-natural, dog treats featuring sustainable cricket protein and spirulina. Yep, you read that correctly, we said crickets.
The production of traditional meat is resource-intensive, with livestock (beef, chicken) being the world’s leading cause of methane emissions.
It takes 2,000 gallons of water to produce just one pound of beef!
Cricket protein is a healthy, complete protein that uses less water and other resources than traditional livestock. Plus, crickets produce no methane whatsoever!
Healthy Protein, Healthy Pup, Healthy Planet
Crickets are a complete protein and contain high amounts of Omega-3 and vitamin B-12. Cricket protein is also hypoallergenic, and makes for a safe alternative to dogs who are allergic to meat like chicken or beef.
The crickets are humanely raised, farmed at the end of their life-span, cleaned, cooked and ground into a fine powder. Chippin then combines the protein powder, along with other high-quality ingredients, and bakes them into a delicious dog snack. Just read the reviews!
