Bark for Peace! dog treats are more than wholesome, organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, corn-free snacks packaged in natural, biodegradable cellophane with labels printed on 100% PCW paper that are carbon-neutral shipped and delivered — they embody a message about saving the world and the love that it will take to get us there. "We think peace is more than the absence of war, rather we hope and work toward the absence of suffering and the flourishing of all! Our dogs show us peace is: rambunctious joy, relentless love, abundant sharing, creative compassion and ever-extended forgiveness," says B4P founder Lisa Knaggs.
Recently, I had the opportunity to share some of that B4P love. When I returned from last week's Co-Op America Green Business Conference I was toting two different kinds of tasty eco-treats, one for me and a B4P sample for my puppy Paul. Item #1 contained 100% organic sweet potatoes, tamari, coconut oil, ginger, garlic, turmeric and cayenne; Item #2 was made of 100% organic dates, cashews, goji Berries, lemon juice, and vanilla (take a look after the jump to see which was which).If you guessed Item #1 was the people treat you might be surprised to learn that those are the full ingredients in the Bark For Peace Sweet Potato Jerky Chews (the other snack was a Cliff Nectar Bar). The real test came when I offered Paul a taste of the jerky chew. Our pup is a bit unusual in his blasÃ© attitude about food so when he went all beggy on me after his first taste I knew this was a real winner, one of the learn-a-new-trick fast variety.
If only there were more goodies — for pets and for their owners — that took as much care to make the world a better place.
Woof! (peace out)
