PETMATE® GARNERS LEAD AT GLOBAL PET EXPO
PETMATE® WINS COVETED 2014 EDISON AWARD
Yep, for the World’s Most Innovative Products and Services. Petmate won the Edison Award in Lifestyles for their Travel ‘See & Extend’ Carrier, and the Edison Green Award for their success in developing sustainable solutions and green business models.
Says Larry Baab, EVP Marketing & New Product Development, “Our Spectrum facility is one of many ways Petmate helps to preserve the environment through sustainable manufacturing.”
Well, they certainly walk the talk.
Petmate® purchases and consumes 40 to 80 million pounds of post-industrial/pre-consumer plastic waste per year to create viable injection-grade plastic for their products which are made of 95% recycled material that would otherwise go to landfills. All internal scrap is recycled for future use; the corporate office recycles, too. (Italics, mine.)
Again I quote Larry Baab, who had mentioned prior to the awards, “Petmate shares the Edison Awards’ commitment to innovation with a visionary, creative-yet-practical approach to pet products.” Makes me wonder if they might have a bona-fide think tank somewhere. 😀
Take a look at the video and see how the “See & Extend” pet carrier works. This, and Petmate’s many new products are coming soon. Meanwhile, check out Petmate’s other products at Fido ‘n Fluffy’s 🙂
