We are a B Corp.

In June 2016, P.L.A.Y. was honored to be awarded Certified B Corp., joining the growing community of more than 3,300 Certified B Corps from 71 countries and 150 industries working together toward one unifying goal: to use business as a force for good. As one of the few B Corps in the pet industry, we are proud to make things better for pets, people and the planet.

Each year, B Lab releases lists honoring the top-performing Certified B Corps in each Impact Area and overall, broken down by size, on the annual Best for the World lists. In 2019, P.L.A.Y. was awarded Best for Governance honoring businesses building their visions and values into their company bylaws to ensure their missions will live on with transparency and accountability. We were also chosen as Best for Changemaker, which recognizes companies whose impact score improvement ranked in the top 20 percent of all B Corps.

What is a B Corp?

B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Individually, B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability, and aspire to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems. Collectively, B Corps lead a growing global movement of people using business as a force for good.

B Corps Believe:

  • that we must be the change we seek in the world
  • that all businesses ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered
  • that, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all

Our Impact

Pets – We believe that all pets deserve a warm place to sleep – including those who have yet to find their forever homes. Not only are we committed to designing safe, practical and eco-friendly pet products, we are also committed to helping those in need.  We’re proud to contribute in-kind product donations to rescues around the country, and participate in team volunteer days at our local shelters each year.

People – Our team is like a family here at P.L.A.Y., so we make it a priority to pay all our employees equitably and fairly. Yearly performance reviews are conducted using a transparent measure and in addition to a competitive base salary, employees are entitled to a yearly discretionary bonus, generous paid time off program, sick leave and health benefits. 

Planet – We are serious about helping the environment and go above and beyond to employ greener business practices. Through our PlanetFill® stuffing made from recycled plastic bottles, we’ve saved over 10 million bottles from entering the landfills! In addition, our FSC certified packaging and renewable energy in our HQ have helped us become Gold Certified by Green America’s Green Business Certification program.

We’re also proud to partner with the International Fund for Animal Welfare to give back a portion of our proceeds from all animal-themed toy collections in order to support its efforts in animal welfare and conservation.
