Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 01, 2013
Healthy Spot, a pioneering independent pet supplies and services boutique, and The Honest Kitchen, a producer of healthy all natural pet food products, today announced a one year partnership with Los Angeles non-profit organization TreePeople, to help plant trees and conduct other important environmental initiatives in Los Angeles’s urban areas.
Beginning November 1st, 2013, every purchase of a 10 lbs box of The Honest Kitchen’s dog food at Healthy Spot locations in the greater Los Angeles area will directly support TreePeople’s work in greening the city.
“We are excited to partner with the Honest Kitchen and our customers to support the TreePeople’s sustainability and greening initiative in our local communities. We are eager to see what we can do together in this new program,” stated Andrew Kim, one of Healthy Spot’s co-founders.
TreePeople has a long-range vision to make Los Angeles greener, healthier, and more sustainable. TreePeople involves citizen volunteers and local businesses engaging with each other to grow L.A.’s tree canopy and create a secure and clean water local supply, for example by:
- Mobilizing neighborhood volunteers to plant and care for trees.
- Caring for trees to shade walkways, streets, buildings and recreation areas to reduce energy and water use.
- Unpaving hard asphalt surfaces and restoring healthy soil that enables rainwater to soak into the ground.
- Ensuring downspouts direct rainwater into the ground instead of running off onto pavement and into storm drains.
- Establishing native and drought-tolerant plants and grasses to reduce the need for irrigation.
To celebrate the new partnership, Healthy Spot, The Honest Kitchen and TreePeople kicked off the program with a volunteer and media event at Pan Pacific Park (Beverly Blvd & N Sierra Bonita Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036) last Friday, October 25th, 2013.
“We’re so excited to partner with the three Healthy Spot locations in greater Los Angeles area through our Pawlanthropy program for charitable giving to support TreePeople, in their efforts to grow a sustainable future for Los Angeles,” commented The Honest Kitchen’s founder and CEO, Lucy Postins.
