People, Pets, and the Planet.
(Not just profit)
When we measure success not just by profit, but by how we treat our people and our planet, we open our minds to innovation, inspiration, and a true sense of purpose.
As a B Corp, we have joined a community of businesses that hold an above-and-beyond commitment to healthier employees, sustainable practices, transparency, and accountability.
Since becoming a B Corp we have been inspired to take a deeper look at our company practices: How we treat our employees, the environment, and community. Doing so has deepened our commitment to doing good in the world, and helped us define the path that will take us into the future.
We earned our B Corp status for many reasons, and we’re proud of all of them. Here are some highlights:
- Community-Minded: the employees at West Paw love to give back and support our community. We do so by donating product and money to charities that fit our company’s core values and volunteering our time.
- Made in the USA: We handcraft 100% of our products in Bozeman, MT
- Safe for pets and people: Our products are BPA and phthalate-free, non-toxic, and FDA compliant
- Sustainable: We use eco-friendly materials with minimal waste, manufactured in a state-of-the-art, environmentally conscious building
- Forward-thinking: Our Join the Loop® program means our toys can be infinitely recycled
- Human-friendly: We offer generous wages and benefits (including flexible schedules) for employees
Our World Deserves the Best.
As a 4-time winner of the "Best for the World: Environment" award, West Paw envisions a world where a business success doesn’t happen at the expense of people or the planet. We believe it’s a matter of innovation, collaboration, and dedication to the radical notion that business can effect positive change for our customers, communities, and world.
Leading the Way
As a founding member of the Pet Sustainability Coalition, we are key leaders in building a pet industry committed to minimizing our impact on the environment. We believe sustainability is a critical component of any successful business strategy and are proud to take steps towards a more sustainable future for our customers and the pets they love.
We’re Still In: The Paris Climate Agreement
West Paw stands for environmental and social responsibility. It’s clearly written in our Vision and our Values and demonstrated in our actions. It’s important that we not waiver from our commitment to use our business as a force for good. In 2017, West Paw joined countless other organizations to declare "We Are Still In," as our continued commitment to the Paris Agreement.
