Earth Rated's cruelty-free products range from vegan and compostable, and their packaging is made from recycled materials. And they give back to organizations and initiatives that help animals and fellow man.
Why we love it
People with pets that actually enjoy bath time are the chosen people. For the rest of us, these grooming wipes are here to save the day. With a gentle formula of aloe vera, shea butter, chamomile, and cucumber, these vegan wipes are perfectly hypoallergenic and amazing for daily use. Since these wipes were designed for external use only, make sure to avoid the skin around the ears and eyes. And if your dog has a history of sensitive skin, we reccomend getting the unscented version. Now you can get your four-legged bestie all cleaned up without the stress of trying to get them in the water.
How it does good
Pick up after your dog, for planetary good
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies dog waste as an environmental pollutant, and one gram of dog poop can contain over 23 million bacteria. Who let the ick out? With their cruelty-free bags made from recycled materials, Earth Rated makes it easy to be a responsible, planet-loving dog owner. Their light green bags and wipes are all compostable and unlike regular plastic bags, their dark green bags break down naturally as they react to variables like heat. Now cue the happy wags.
responsible sourcingEarth Rated manufactures their bags at their own facility in China. Responsibly managed according to North American standards, the facility provides excellent working conditions, good wages, and government medical plans. Now onto the actual bags. Unlike traditional plastic bags, their dark green bags contain an EPI additive which helps them to break down. And their certified compostable bags are made from vegetable starches and have been BPI-certified. The raw materials that make their wipes called Veocel® Viscose Fibres are derived from sustainable wood sources and are FSC-certified.
low carbon footprintEarth Rated’s bag suppliers ensure that all plastic waste generated from production is put into a plastic recycling machine where it’s turned into pellets to be used later. The most energy-intensive parts of the production are done at night to minimize electricity impacts.
recyclable packagingGiving back is at the heart of Earth Rated. They’ve helped almost 3,000 organizations and donated over 6 million poop bags. On top of their dog shelter and rescue initiatives, they’ve also donated to a number of community organizations like DESTA to support employability of black youth and Stop AAPI Hate, a coalition addressing anti-Asian hate amid the pandemic.
recyclable packagingAll of Earth Rated’s packaging is made from recycled materials, and they use recyclable paper cores for their poop bag rolls instead of plastic. Their light green bags are BPI-certified compostable and are made from vegetable starches.
