Ontario based PawzNDogz, the trusted brand for snuffle mats, has had its products certified Plastic Negative. The company is partnering with repurpose Global – the world’s leading Plastic Action Platform – to fund the recovery of twice as much nature-bound plastic waste as it uses across it’s products and packaging. This action on plastic waste by PawzNDogz is part of a wider plastic action strategy that includes optimization of waste generated by the company operations.

Through this partnership, PawzNDogz is enabling the removal of over 300 lbs of plastic waste each year (equivalent to 8,658 plastic bottles and 28,400 plastic bags) that would otherwise end up polluting the natural environment. The company is supporting rePurpose Global’s impact project “Saaf Samudra” in Goa, India to collect and process plastic that is low value and unlikely to be recovered from the environment.

As a prominent player in the pet sector, PawzNDogz recognizes the serious threat that plastic pollution poses to the future of our planet.

“We have seen the devastating amount of waste generated every day by our industry, so to us, the urgency of this crisis was impossible to ignore. Our planet needs action on plastic waste and, with our Plastic Negative products, PawzNDogz is taking steps forward.” said Smriti Pratishruti, Founder & Owner of PawzNDogz. “We plan to further optimize the generation of plastic waste in our operations along with going ahead with a stricter philosophy of reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible so that we can minimize the waste at the consumer’s end.”

By having products certified Plastic Negative, PawzNDogz is not only tackling the plastic waste crisis, but also supporting waste workers’ incomes by attaching value to hard-to-recycle plastics, and providing safe, stable, and fairly-paid employment opportunities through local waste management enterprises.

“Our mission has always been to offer our customers the highest quality product experience while creating a deep impact on society. Though there is more to do, we truly believe in the power of brands to affect long-lasting change.” said Smriti.

“Environmental protection is at the core of PawzNDogz. It is heartening to see them push the boundaries on tackling the plastic waste problem. We hope their commitment pushes more brands to take responsibility for the plastic that they are generating.” said Aditya Siroya, Co-founder and Chief Impact Officer of rePurpose Global.
