“It is our collective and individual responsibility to preserve and tend to the world in which we all live”
#1: Repurposing Plastic
Plastic water bottles have become a massive environmental issue over the last few decades. With the amount of bottles that are being thrown away yearly, landfills are being overwhelmed beyond capacity. Many facilities have no choice but to incinerate the surplus plastic waste, which emits toxic pollutants into the air. Additionally, many plastic bottles never even make it to landfills. Instead, they pollute our oceans, disrupt ecosystems, and sometimes even injure or kill marine life.
That is why our environmental focus is centered around Rescü’s products. Every one of our collars, leashes and harnesses is made from recycled plastic bottles. Our hope is that as the network of #Rescüers increases, the positive impact Rescü makes on the environment increases as well. Together we can have a lasting impact!
#2: We Donate through 1% For the Planet Foundation
1% for the Planet is a global organization that connects its members to certified environmental nonprofits. Started in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, members of 1% have donated more than $175 million. Still, the current level of environmental giving - only 3% of total worldwide philanthropy - is not enough to solve the most pressing issues facing our planet.
That is why we couldn’t be prouder to announce our membership with the 1% For the Planet Foundation, where Rescü has pledged to donate at least 1% of annual sales. It’s simple: When you purchase with Rescü, you are directly contributing to a healthier, more sustainable planet.
