The Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC) was founded in 2013 as the only independent, not-for-profit organization bringing together a coalition of pet companies who are committed to integrating environmental and social practices. PSC is uniquely positioned to serve as the epicenter of collaborative solutions by bringing together competitors at the same table to work towards scalable industry-wide change.
Pets bring us joy and are much loved members of many families yet it lags behind in making sustainable changes that make a long-term impact on the environment
- More than 300 million pounds of non recyclable packaging is created by the US pet industry each year
- Pet food accounts for an estimated 25% of the total animal proteins consumed in the U.S. creating approximately 64 million tons of CO2- equivalent greenhouse gasses
- The pet industry is estimated to double by 2030, intensifying our impact and need for change

THE SEEDS OF SUCCESS
On June 6, 2023, history was made. Our partners at Animal Supply Company, Petfood Experts, and Phillips Pet Food and Supply set aside their competitive rivalry to donate $25,000 each as a catalyst for building the fund. That night alone, supporters donated more than $100,000. Spurred on through the seed gifts of the three distributors, the campaign has totaled more than $217,000 to date, paving the way for PSC to expand its programming to support the advancement of sustainable packaging, sustainable ingredients, and corporate social responsibility.
We invite you to be a part of something extraordinary – a movement that creates positive change and transforms the industry. We believe in the power of collaboration to drive meaningful change, and we’re excited to continue our journey to create a world dedicated to a more sustainable tomorrow – with you!
Join us at the intersection where success meets impact.
This giving season, let’s get down to the business of creating a more sustainable world. Your contribution, big or small, will make a significant difference.
TOGETHER WE CAN SOLVE OUR BIGGEST PLANETARY CHALLENGES
Our goal is to raise $300,000 by the end of the year to catalyze the work needed to transform the pet industry. By contributing to our fundraising campaign, you’re not just donating, you’re investing in brighter futures, stronger communities, and a better world for all. Your generosity empowers us to continue our vital work, whether it’s providing essential resources to those in need, advancing groundbreaking research, or spreading awareness about a crucial cause.
