(PRESS RELEASE) ARDSLEY, NY — Pura Naturals Pet celebrates Earth Day with inaugural “Team Green” program that furthers their recycling and sustainability endeavors. This includes a 1-Tree Planted initiative for their USDA Certified Organic Tea Tree & Peppermint Shampoo and Conditioner.

We’re doing more than replacing office light bulbs and placing an extra recycling bin. We are champions of organic pet wellness and believers that great products can do amazing things. Our award-winning Tea Tree & Peppermint Shampoo and Conditioner not only heal canines’ sensitive skin, but now serves as a tool to reverse deforestation and help restore habitats for animals when retailers or consumers purchase this combo pack. We’re making an impact to increase corporate social responsibility by planting trees with amazing projects around the world!

Julie Creed, VP of sales and marketing stated “Pura Naturals Pet is eco-friendly and looks for unique ways to continually improve our global footprint. Team Green provides the platform to expand our recycling and corporate sustainability efforts. With 1-Tree Planted, it’s a multi-faceted approach with specific products that are tethered to planting a tree. We have employees rolling up their sleeves and planting trees and doing restoration in specific markets from the boroughs of New York to the beaches along the California Coast. We are also encouraging our retail customers to purchase our Tea Tree & Peppermint Shampoo and Conditioner combo pack that is earmarked with the 1-Tree Planted logo. Proceeds from the sale of these combo packs will be used to help fund our tree planting initiative.”

The stats are staggering;

  • 700 pounds of paper are used by the average U.S citizen annually.
  • 80,000 acres of forest disappear from Earth daily.
  • Tropical forest destruction accounts for about 20% of current greenhouse gas emissions.
  • 80% of the world’s terrestrial plants and animals live in forests and are losing their habitats to deforestation.

“From our local parks to national forests, our families, pets and the environment all rely on trees. Our goal is to plant hundreds of trees for future generations in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service and amazing reforestation partners around the world.” added Creed.

The benefit of planting trees is felt long term. Trees reduce the amount of storm water runoff, which reduces erosion and pollution in our waterways and may reduce the effects of flooding. Many species of wildlife also depend on trees for their habitat. Trees also provide protection and homes for many birds and mammals.

P.L.A.Y. Names Winners of Scholarship Competition

Claire Binfield from Las Vegas, NV, won this year’s competition.

(PRESS RELEASE) P.L.A.Y., Pet Lifestyle and You, has announced the winner of its sixth annual scholarship competition, Scholars Helping Collars. Each year, P.L.A.Y. awards one $1,000 scholarship to the student who best exemplifies the company’s core animal rights beliefs and who best describes, through an essay entry, the impact he or she has made on animal welfare in his or her community. Claire Binfield from Las Vegas, NV, won this year’s competition for her work with researchers on marine life preservation along with her role as a volunteer puppy raiser with Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Binfield has always been passionate about marine life, so in 2014 she self-funded a two-week Girl Scout Destination trip to Costa Rica and Panama to work with researchers on sea turtle preservation. During the trip, she participated in nightly beach patrols to protect sea turtles while they laid eggs, cataloged nests, evaluated unhatched eggs, and even helped release 100 hatchling sea turtles to the ocean. While in Panama, she also completed her open-water scuba certification, which will allow her to continue her work in marine life preservation.

In 2015, Binfield embarked on another Girl Scout Destination trip to Texas, this time for a 10-day marine science camp where she helped build and install monofilament fishing line recycle containers at a local pier. Through this volunteer work, Binfield also learned how providing the recycle containers allows fishermen to responsibly dispose of used lines and hooks that could otherwise harm the aquatic wildlife. Through both of these trips, Binfield solidified her desire to pursue a career in marine animal rescue and ocean preservation.

Binfield’s passion for animals has also extended into her role as a volunteer puppy raiser for GBD, a nonprofit providing free guide dogs to the visually impaired. Raising guide dogs opened her eyes to how service dogs can impact people’s lives through providing increased mobility and independence. This inspired her to create a social media awareness campaign, “Octaves Journey,” in order to provide schools and businesses with information about properly training service dogs and ADA accessibility rights.

“Claire’s passion for preserving and advocating for animals in her local community and around the globe is bound to impact the world in her future career as a Marine Biologist,” said Deborah Feng co-founder of P.L.A.Y. “Her drive inspired us to award her this scholarship and we are excited to watch her succeed as she begins her studies at Mitchell College.”

In addition to Binfield’s first place $1,000 prize, P.L.A.Y. also selected second and third place winners. Camille Hoffman from Carlsbad, CA, was awarded second place and will be receiving a set of 10 Warm Bellies Special Edition Chill Pads from P.L.A.Y. to be donated to the animal shelter of her choice — the NoWorriesMovement. Yasmin Ballew from Manteca, CA received third place — Ballew will receive a five-piece Garden Fresh plush toy set from P.L.A.Y. to be donated to the shelter of her choosing, Animal Rescue Tracy.

Winners were chosen from a pool of more than 370 applicants from across the country. Each essay was judged by P.L.A.Y. representatives using the following criteria:

• Compelling and engaging description of volunteer efforts and their impact on the personal life of the student

• Thematic consistency throughout the submission around the central thesis

• Proper spelling and grammar usage throughout the submission

(PRESS RELEASE) On Tuesday, April 30, the seventh annual NYC Re-tails & Sales Pet Expo took place and had the best event turnout to date. Hosted once again by Nancy Hassel of American Pet Professionals and Dana Humphrey of Whitegate PR, more than 200 attendees from the New York City and surrounding areas joined together at Home Studios Inc. near Union Square Park for this one-day boutique B2B tradeshow.

In previous years, the NYC Retails & Sales Pet Expo was exclusive to media, pet retailers, groomers, veterinarians, social media and pet influencers. However, this year for the first time, the event opened the doors to the public for special pet parent hours. During the last two hours of the show, pet parents were invited to attend the expo to shop for the latest pet products, as well partake in a very interesting panel discussion regarding one of the pet industry’s fastest-growing trends: CBD and holistic pet care.

“Every year has been a success with the NYC Re-tails and Sales Pet Expo. However, this year, there was an energy and excitement that felt much different than ever before,” said Dana Humphrey founder and president of Whitegate PR. “Our vendors and attendees had fantastic feedback about the day, and allowing pet parents to join us gave the expo an added layer of fun!”

CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, has had a surge in popularity over the past couple of years for people and pets which is why the CBD market is expected to hit $22 billion by 2022, according to the Brightfield Group, cannabis industry analysts.

“Pet retailers are jumping on board to this massive trend, which is why Dana and I decided to add a CBD panel at this year’s show,” said Nancy Hassel, founder and president of American Pet Professionals. “Valuable and crucial information was shared at the discussion for both pet industry professionals and pet owners. It was the perfect way to close out the day!”

Attendees gathered around to hear from industry experts, all of which were exhibitors at the show, during two panel sessions CBD 101 and the Business Side of CBD and Hemp. Panels included: Angela Ardolino from CBD Dog Health, Craig Henderson from Fetch/Extract Labs, Matt Terrill from Innovet Pet, Min An from Buzzin and Dee Rivera of LATINISTA Magazine (as moderator). Panel session two consisted of: Dr. Bob Goldstein of Earth Animal; Damian Dalla-Longo of Bona Vida, Steven Cron Benchmark Payment Networks, Rob Kovler of Animal Nutritional Products, and Glenn Polyn from PET AGE Magazine (as moderator). During each panel, attendees learned about hemp regulations and how to carry this exploding new category in their stores. Veterinarians and experts crafting CBD in the USA were available for cautious pet parents and professionals to get their questions answered about this natural product that helps calm pets from anxiety and other ailments, especially prone problems for urban pets!

The vendor lineup included: Animal Nutritional Products, Benchmark Payment Networks, Bona Vida, Brutus Broth, Buzzn, CBD Dog Health, Don’t Forget Pocket Strap, Earth Animal, Emma Ko’s, Extract Labs/Fetch, Fairy Boss, Fluffygram, Green Coast Pet, Innovet Pet, NaturVet, NeVetica, Pet Smoochies, Pets Destiny, Ruffina, TwinCritters, Viachem, Wooftown’s brands: Baked Fresh and Home Cooked pet treats and food.
