Pura Naturals Pet™ is dedicated to delivering the highest quality products using only the best materials the earth has to offer. In fact, we deliver organic ingredients to make the safest products for your pets that are also safe for you, your family, and our planet. BUT, what you may not have know is that our products are completely sourced and made in the USA. We are not only committed to delivering healthy alternatives for your pets that are human safe and eco-friendly, we also believe American made is a vital part of our economy, and knowing where and how a product is produced is essential in today’s marketplace. That is why we manufacture our products right here in Providence, Rhode Island, but we don’t stop there! On top of manufacturing our products here in the USA we strive to source all of our materials and ingredients right here at home too. And, so far, we have done a pretty awesome job! We promise to stay true to this commitment as well as being completely open with you on where and how all of our products are made. Why Is This Important to Us? Stimulates the Economy Every dollar that we spend on American-made products and resources can help boost the economy and keep our neighbors working. Environmentally Friendly Manufacturing American manufacturers abide by strict regulations to protect the environment. These regulations do not exist in most of the top countries manufacturing and importing their goods into the U.S. causing massive pollution and environmental abuse. Human Rights Importing countries have little or non-existent regulations or standards for working conditions. By keeping our dollars in the U.S., we are not supporting these horrible working conditions (long hours, exploitation of children, extremely low wages, etc.). Animal Rights All of our products are cruelty-free and have never been and will never be tested on animals. Just like human rights, the United States has tighter regulations and standards when it comes to animal testing than importing countries who have little to no regulations at all. Less Transportation Manufacturing products outside the USA requires large freighters or jet planes to deliver those finished products to the United States, requiring a lot of fuel and increasing carbon emissions which harm the environment.
Below are just some of the materials we source here in the USA:
Bio-Based Foam Used in our pet beds and pet stairs. The advantages of using a Bio-Based foam is that it is derived from renewable resources such as plants and trees rather than most standard foams which are being created solely from depleting petroleum derivatives. In fact, Bio-based foams have become the new standard for human mattresses due to it’s eco-friendly manufacturing process. Our proprietary Bio-Based foam is open cell visco elastic which provides the ultimate support and comfort. Our dedication to eco-friendly, made in the USA products has become our true mission in delivering the best products for your pet. Memory Foam Used in our pet beds. Memory foam has higher density than regular foam. It is often referred to as visco elastic polyurethane foam, or low-resilience polyurethane foam. Higher density memory foam is sensitive to pressure and temperature and molds to the shape of whatever is pressing against it. Memory foam was developed in 1966 under a contract by NASA’s Ames Research Center. Created by feeding gas into polymer matrix, the foam has an open-cell solid structure that matches pressure against it, yet slowly springs back to it’s original shape. We are proud to manufacture our memory foam in the USA. These advantages provide your pet with the ultimate comfort and support. Raw Ground Rice Hulls Used in our pet bowls and trays. Rice hulls are the coatings of seeds, or grains of rice. They are listed as Class A thermal insulating material because of the difficulty to burn and are also less likely to allow moisture to propagate mold or fungi. Our domestic rice hulls are grown in Arkansas. Our manufacturing process makes our bowls 40% lighter in weight than the equivalent bamboo and melamine bowls, contains 30% renewable content, and are formaldhyde free unlike most commercially available plastic bowls.
