Going plant-based is one of the best things we can do for the health of our planet. But what about our pets? In the United States, pet food is responsible for 25-30% of the meat industry's environmental footprint. How can we reduce this negative impact while giving our beloved pets the best nutrition?

Meet Wild Earth, a company feeding pets sustainably with fermented koji, veterinary insight, cell culture, and most importantly, a love of animals! Did you know dogs are omnivores? Did you know you could soon have cell culture chicken for your cats? Tune in to get all your sustainable pet questions answered and more!
