Vital Pet Life Partners with rePurpose Global to Combat Plastic Pollution

The company will fund the removal of 18 grams of ocean bound plastic per bottle they sell.




(PRESS RELEASE) LOS ANGELES — Vital Pet Life announced its partnership with rePurpose Global, the world’s leading Plastic Action Platform whose mission is to create tangible environmental and socio-economic impact by removing plastic waste from the environment, while enabling livelihoods for marginalized waste workers across the globe. Vital Pet Life will fund the removal of 18 grams of ocean bound plastic per bottle they sell, through rePurpose’s Impact Guarantee program.

“We have built our brand on the foundation of ESG integrity and taking measurable steps to make an impact towards a more sustainable future,” says Donie Yamamoto, CEO and founder of Vital Pet Life. “With increased climate change, there is an urgency to create clear action plans. Through this partnership, we’re taking verifiable and effective action on our global plastic crisis, while educating our customers, who support our commitment to ESG practices.”

Vital Pet Life’s specific impact program is Project Laut Yang Tenang, whose goal it is to stop ocean bound plastic waste from ending up in Indonesia’s coasts while protecting its fragile ecosystems and biodiversity. The project focuses on recycling low-value, flexible LDPE and HDPE plastics, typically ignored by local waste collectors due to low market value, while creating dignified livelihoods for informal waste aggregators and workers through safe working conditions and fair wages.

“Environmental protection is at the core of Vital Pet Life. It is heartening to see them push the boundaries on tackling the plastic waste problem. We hope their commitment pushes more brands to take responsibility for the plastic that they are generating,” said Aditya Siroya, co-founder and chief impact officer of rePurpose Global.

NASC Media Spotlight

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
