Why We Love Local and USA Companies
USA! USA! USA!
The foundation of our business is based not only on the love we have for animals, but on the love we have for our planet and our local community.
We are fortunate that our community culture strongly encourages people to support local and environmentally-friendly options for everyday needs. In fact, Lafayette is one of the top 50 cities in the nation recognized for its environmental and sustainability efforts. We echo these efforts in our search for brands who share these values and incorporate them into their company mission statements.
Mother Earth Love
The companies that we feel provide the healthiest foods for our animals are also the most environmentally-friendly, sustainable and ethical producers – and most of them hail from the good ol’ US of A.
- Steve’s Real Food
- Answers Goat Milk
- Primal Pet Foods
- The Honest Kitchen
- Grandma Lucy’s
- Stella and Chewy’s
Local Economy Love
When we support our local economy and buy products made in the US, we increase demand for domestic sourcing and services which requires more local jobs. Local workforces tend to spend more money in their own economy, which further increases demand.
Buying locally made products and choosing to spend money in local businesses benefits our economy by:
- Creating more jobs
- Increasing tax revenue
- Decreasing pollution from imported goods
- Encourage sustainable practices that support the health, environment, and economy of our local community.
