Nearly Zero-Waste “Green” Conference: BlogPaws, Only Natural Pet, and the Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC) have partnered for our second zero-waste initiative at the 8th Annual BlogPaws Conference. In 2015, the BlogPaws Conference went “green” for the first time in its history. With an environmental goal to divert 65 percent of event waste from going to the landfill, this partnership created an astounding first-time achievement of 78 percent! Impacts of this effort are likened to saving the amount of carbon dioxide released by driving 1,800 miles, or the same amount of energy generated by a hamster running on a wheel for over 3,000 years! http://blogp.ws/27SA2kX

BlogPaws Gives Back: We pick a local shelter every year to help, too: This year in Chandler!
