Our vision of responsibility is a simple one. We created “I and love and you'' to simply be THE most trusted company to care for pets, their people and, most definitely, their planet.
WHY WE CARE
We love pets. We love their people. And we love the planet.
You’re here reading this for the same reason we’re here saying this: your pet’s food choices matter. That’s why we are committed to making the healthiest pet food possible with the most positive impact on our environment as possible.
We’re dedicated to sustainability in the sourcing, production, and packaging of your pet’s food. And we know that the more care we take on our end, the more sunny days, cuddles and belly rubs you get to share with your favorite furry friend on your end.
We partnered with TerraCycle® to ensure that 100% of “ILY” packaging is recyclable. TerraCycle supports innovative, brand-funded programs to recycle items that typically cannot be collected curbside. TerraCycle recycles, upcycles, and reuses these materials, instead of sending them to the landfill. And we think that’s super cool.
*Because cans and cardboard can be recycled locally, please only send bags, pouches, and cups to TerraCycle.
“ILY” is proud to have partnered with these fine organizations to help foster our sustainability mission and reduce our carbon PawPrint.
Have we mentioned that we love pets? And for us, a big part of loving what we do is giving back to the community and supporting the pets who need it most.
Food Donations: Since 2015, “ILY” has donated more than 1 million meals (and counting!) to pets in need. Every month, we feature a Rescue-Of-The-Month on our website and social media to put the spotlight on pets needing furever families across the nation.
Natural Disaster Relief: During times of crisis, pets are often impacted in the very same ways as their human parents. We’re always on standby to donate delicious, healthy meals to pets in need across the country after hurricanes, fires, floods, and other natural disasters.
Waste Management: We never let good food go to waste. That's why when we've made too much, we donate any surplus products to pets in need instead of letting it end up in a landfill.
Our dedication to making the healthiest pet food means we search the globe for the best possible ingredients. This adherence to high-quality ingredients helps us keep your pets healthy. Our commitment to sustainability means we source those ingredients in ways to help keep our environment healthy.
Our pet foods are also carefully formulated to include non-GMO proteins, vegetables, and legumes. And we’re proud to use free-range, grass-fed beef in our chews.
Clean Label Project
The Clean Label Project™ researches the true contents of America’s best-selling consumer products, including pet food. CLP tests for over 130 harmful contaminants and toxins and then publishes the results as their Product Ratings.
We’re beyond proud that “ILY” products have been honored with the CLP Purity Award. And you thought only dogs could win Best In Show!
Our Pets, Our Planet
Our dedication to creating sustainable food and keeping your pets healthy extends to everything we do.
We’re proud to use 100% sustainable (reduced, reused, recycled) materials in packaging and shipping of products from our Boulder, CO warehouse.
Even in our office, we use recycled paper in our printers, reusable silverware & dishes in our kitchen, and non-toxic cleaning supplies. Some of our “ILY” team members even bike to work, and we also recycle and compost as a team!
