Chippin

We all want what's best for our furry companions, but it can be tough to do right by them and the environment. That's where Chippin comes in. Founded by Haley Russell and Lauren Colagrande (with some help from their pups, Fisher and Wren), Chippin is a revolutionary dog treat company that crafts low-impact, hypoallergenic, and absolutely delicious cricket-based dog snacks!

See, our furry friends are responsible for 30% of global meat consumption. A single pound of poultry requires around 560 gallons of water while just one pound of beef needs closer to 2000 gallons! Add the fact that the U.S. meat industry is responsible for 36% of methane emissions (the second biggest contributor to climate change after CO2), and things start to get really environmentally UNfriendly. Water, land-use, and methane production mean our pups' food bowls are putting a big strain on our natural resources. That's not even including the detriment of corn and soy production, common fillers in dog food. So, what's Chippin's solution? A healthier, cleaner, and greener protein source: crickets!

Yep, like chirp, chirp crickets. Sourced from a small family-owned farm in Canada, producing one pound of Chippin's cricket flour only requires a single gallon of water. Cricket flour is also higher in Omega-3's and B12, and it contains more than TRIPLE the amount of protein than beef and chicken. Winner, winner, cricket dinner!

High Quality. Low Carbon Pawprint

Chippin bakes sustainability into every part of their treats literally. By opting for cricket flour rather than beef or poultry, Chippin massively reduces their environmental, uh, paw print compared to other treat brands. Of course, Chippin doesn't stop the sustainability train at their ingredients. Each treat bag is made using 29% recycled materials. Chippin also puts your pup's health at the forefront of their mission. Many ingredients used in generic dog food and treats are linked to all kinds of allergies - from itchy skin to uncomfortable digestive issues. By steering clear of common allergens like poultry and corn, Chippin treats have actually been shown to improve the gut-biome of canines. A healthy gut is hugely important as it impacts the immune system, digestion, and also how a dog reacts to allergies and anxiety! Each crunchy treat is packed with healthy and delicious ingredients like pumpkin, banana, blueberry, carrot, and peanuts. Dogs will go nuts and you'll feel great knowing that each nibble is safe and beneficial to your bestie. Honestly, they smell good enough to eat yourself! Giving your pup a sweet treat no longer means you have to sacrifice your sustainability dreams. That's enough to get anyone's tail wagging!
