More than a Product: How PAW5 Makes a Difference

by Dennis ODonnell on April 29, 2020

In a society that expects corporate transparency, from FDA required labeling to annual reports from publicly traded companies, we have access to the truth behind the products we buy.  And not all of this information is good.  Sweat shops, animal-testing and environmental disregard are some unfortunate business practices in today’s world.  The good news is: you have a choice in the products you buy.

PAW5 was built on the core values of Sustainability, Integrity and Thoughtful design, and we are relentless in our commitment to create products that uphold these values.  We know our planet’s resources are finite and go out of our way to conserve them.  Want proof? Check out our ‘Four From Five’ promise!

Now let’s get transparent!

Rock N’ Bowl

What looks like a standard bowl is actually a unique puzzle feeder that will have your dog thinking and problem solving as he nudges and paws his way through a meal.  The Rock N’ Bowl is made from BPA- and phthalate-free plastic using a closed-loop, zero-waste process.  Manufactured in a women-owned facility only 300 miles from PAW5’s Philadelphia headquarters, the Rock N’ Bowl is incredibly durable ensuring you won’t need to replace it anytime soon.

Wooly: The Original Snuffle Mat

Our Wooly is a negative waste product made in a small community in rural Thailand.  The Bua Bhat Factory, a progressive, women-owned company, weaves each mat from pre-consumer non-toxic cotton left over from the industrial textile industry.  Each Wooly is handmade, machine-washable and keeps 2 lb. of would-be “waste” textiles out of landfills!  It’s also a wonderful way to engage your dog’s brain as he sniffs and snuffles to find his food.

PAW5’s products are not only made of high quality materials that are safe for your dog, they also help create fair employment opportunities and keep would-be “waste” materials from entering landfills.  When you buy something with a PAW5 logo you can trust you are giving your dog a high quality, safe and well-designed approach towards feeding, AND know that your dollars are supporting a company committed to protecting our environment.
