Changing the way we work to improve our environmental impact isn’t just the right thing to do – it’s a part of who we are at Purina. Caring for our pets and our planet shapes our everyday actions. For instance, in 2011, Purina employee volunteers implemented a single-stream recycling program, where all recyclables are placed in a single bin, at our headquarters in St. Louis. This one idea nearly doubled the volume of materials we recycle there from more than 40 tons recycled in the first half of 2011, before single-stream, to over 80 tons recycled for the same period in 2012, with single-stream recycling.
40+ Tons Recycled January - July of 2011
80+Tons Recycled January - July of 2012
Purina’s employee volunteers, known as the “GreenPaws” team, help their colleagues at the St. Louis Headquarters raise their environmental awareness. They have also volunteered to collect recyclables at some St. Louis Cardinals games, and helped their neighbors become more environmentally aware with an effort by the team to revitalize the historic Soulard Community Garden.
