One quarter of all meat consumed in the US is eaten by pets. We love our fluffy, furry companions, however their impact on the climate is massive. In this Episode we explore what conscious pet parents can do to reduce the carbon pawprint of their pets. The world of climate-friendly pet parenting is full of amazing innovations and possibilities.
Our first guest is Tracie Hotchner. She is an expert in the area of pet nutrition, and an educator to both pet parents, and companies in the pet industry. With her, we untangle the confusion around an increasing number of pet food trends.
Our second guest is Hanna Lemmetti, the CMO of Alvar Pet, which is a sustainable pet food startup. She explains how Alvar Pet creates dog food with an up to 84% lower carbon pawprint compared to common alternatives.
In our article, The most sustainable pet food brands around the world for 2021, we put together an extensive list of where you can find more sustainable pet food alternatives all around the world.
