This June 8th is World Ocean Day 2023, an annual event that raises awareness about protecting our oceans and conserving marine resources for future generations. Covering over 70% of the Earth's surface, it regulates the climate and supports diverse marine life. Yet, oceans face immense threats, including plastic pollution that harms marine life and disrupts the delicate balance of marine habitats.
Irish seaweed-powered pet nutrition company Blue Pet Co. is inspired by the oceans and a mission to protect them. As a company committed to environmental stewardship, from World Ocean Day until June 30th, Blue Pet Co. will donate 1% of all sales directly to the non-profit organisation The Ocean Clean Up - a non-profit organisation dedicated to developing and scaling technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic.
By choosing Blue Pet Co., not only will pet owners provide essential nutritional support for their dogs, but they will also contribute to the collective effort to tackle plastic pollution.
Everything Blue Pet Co. does is in the best interest of our oceans and planet. The Kerry-based blue biotech specialises in clean, marine-powered dog supplements enriched with seaweed extracts, designed to meet a dog’s health needs naturally and sustainably.
Not only is seaweed packed with key health and wellness benefits for dogs, but it’s also a secret weapon to climate change that captures more carbon than trees on a daily basis.
The business model operates as a circular economy whereby it hand-harvests and replants the seaweed used to create our marine-powered healthy dog supplements.
A signifier of the brand’s ongoing commitment to protecting the planet, Blue Pet Co. is also a 1% for the Planet member. The certification is given to businesses that commit to donating 1% of annual sales to environmental causes.
Developed by a team of marine scientists, Blue Pet Co.’s tasty chewable supplements GoShine, GoActive and GoSmile target critical areas of health concern in dogs - joints and muscles, skin and hair, teeth and gums.
Blue Pet Co. CEO Gary Daly said: “Not enough is being done to conserve our oceans, and the bulk of the work is often carried out by volunteers and passionate individuals driven to seek solutions to a shared global problem. By partnering with The Ocean Clean Up, we aim to make a positive difference in the fight against plastic pollution in our oceans and raise awareness about the importance of supporting the restoration and preservation of our oceans.”
The Ocean Clean Up is at the forefront of developing advanced technologies to remove plastic debris from the world's oceans. Their innovative solutions focus on large-scale cleanup efforts to eliminate plastic pollution and safeguard marine life. By supporting this organisation, people can contribute to advancing sustainable practices and a healthier future for our oceans.
