Press release: Nylabone

Nylabone, an iconic brand in the Central Garden & Pet portfolio, has been certified as a Pet Sustainability Accredited Business by the Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC). This accreditation recognizes Nylabone as a sustainably led and measured business that drives positive impact for pets, people, and the planet.

Nylabone, which initially joined PSC as an Advocate member in 2022, achieved this new level of accreditation after completing an assessment of its business operations. This evaluated the brand’s alignment with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. In addition to encouraging businesses and countries to focus on sustainability-specific goals such as climate change and preservation, the assessment is also designed to address poverty, support health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth.

“Promoting a cleaner, healthier, and all-around better planet for people and furry friends alike is essential to who we are,” said Glen S. Axelrod, president and CEO of Nylabone Products. “This PSC accreditation is not only a critical part of our commitment toward sustainable pet products, but it also serves as an important reminder to the Nylabone team that our actions make an impactful difference for our Earth.”

The Nylabone mission is to produce top-quality products that furry friends love in a greener way that best serves dogs, pet parents, the community, customers, and our Earth. The brand has already saved about six hundred cubic feet of landfill space with product packaging featuring PET (a 100 percent recyclable material), prevented 1.1 million pounds of greenhouse gas annually for each electro-hydraulic machine used at its facilities, and generated nearly 400,000 kilowatt hours of clean energy from rooftop solar systems since completion of installation.

The Nylabone commitment to planet-friendly products supports Central Garden & Pet’s Impact strategy, which is dedicated to driving sustainability. Grounded in the purpose to nurture happy and healthy homes, Central is focused on protecting our planet, cultivating our communities, and empowering our employees.

Founded in 2013, PSC envisions a thriving and collaborative pet industry that creates a positive impact for the communities and environments where pet brands do business. This nonprofit organization serves more than 200 member companies in the pet industry, leading retailers, distributors, manufacturers, brands, and suppliers in pursuing solutions to some of the largest industry-wide issues.
