West Paw honored for environmental efforts
BOZEMAN, Mont. – West Paw Design has been recognized by B Lab for creating the most positive overall environmental impact among 1,200 Certified B Corporations. This is West Paw’s second consecutive year to win the honor.
Based in Bozeman, West Paw Design manufactures toys and beds for dogs and cats. Distinguished by a commitment to create eco-friendly, safe and quality products, the company manufactures 100 percent of its products in the U.S.
B Lab is a nonprofit that creates the annual “B Corp Best for the Environment” list, which honors businesses that earn a score in the top 10 percent on the B Impact Assessment. The assessment evaluates the company’s impact on its workers, community, and the environment. Honorees were recognized among micro, small, and mid-sized businesses in 120 industries.
With the belief that any business can be a force for good, the B Corp “Best for the Environment” list is part of the “Best for the World” series. It inspired the Best for NYC campaign, the first municipal public-private impact partnership to challenge businesses to create more high quality jobs and improve the quality of life in local neighborhoods while strengthening their bottom-line.
“West Paw Design is honored to win this award for the second year in a row. The employees of West Paw Design could not be more proud of this acknowledgement,” said Spencer Williams, owner and president, in a news release. “For the past 18 years we have worked hard to make business success friendly to people and the planet. From creating near-zero-waste dog toys, to employee-led initiatives to continually reduce manufacturing waste, taking care of the planet for our two and four-legged friends is at the heart of everything we do.”
