Top-20 Sustainability Brand Nature’s Logic Named to Inc. 5000 for 2nd Year in a Row

All-natural pet food, sustainability, and a focus on independent retail success propels growth

Lincoln, Neb. (Aug. 18, 2021) – Nature’s Logic®, the pioneer creators of 100% natural pet food with NO synthetic vitamins, was named to the Inc. 5000 List of America’s fastest-growing privately held companies for the second year in a row, rising to #221 in the Consumer Products & Services category. In addition, Nature’s Logic, a Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC) top-20 sustainable brand, recently achieved accreditation by PSC for the second year in a row.

Nature’s Logic attributes its growth to a focus on all-natural pet food, continuous progress in sustainability and unwavering support of the independent pet retail channel. 

“More and more consumers care about 100% natural nutrition for their pets and sustainability for their planet,” said David Yaskulka, Nature’s Logic’s CEO. “We’re thrilled to be a leader in sustainability as millennial and Gen Z consumers are demanding better, so we work alongside our independent retail partners to make sure these customers have healthy, natural, sustainable options.” 

Nature’s Logic continues to expand its sustainability measures and programs. The brand’s Clean Food, Clean Energy program purchases 1 kWh of renewable energy for every pound of pet food Nature’s Logic sells. The company’s headquarters is powered by 100% renewable electricity, as is the manufacturing of its dry pet food and bags. A growing number of Nature’s Logic’s products, including its Distinction® line, Raw Frozen, Lightly Cooked Frozen and many treats, come in Certified Plastic Neutral packaging, the first in the pet industry. And, the brand is building an array of products with sustainably sourced ingredients, including Distinction® Grain-Free, which contains MSC certified seafood. Recently, the company announced that it has achieved carbon neutrality in its shipping and warehousing. 

For the second year in a row, Nature’s Logic has been accredited by the Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC), which is the pet industry’s authority on sustainability. This accreditation designates sustainable pet brands based on a rigorous set of metrics – ranging from use of renewable energy to how a company treats their employees — verified by PSC’s experts. 

“The Pet Sustainability Coalition accreditation makes it easy for our retailers to choose brands whose sustainability claims have been extensively reviewed by experts,” said Yaskulka. “This allows independent retailers to better serve their millennial sustainability customers who come to their stores looking for brands like Nature’s Logic.” 

Supporting the independent pet channel is paramount to Nature’s Logic’s growth, adds Yaskulka. “We are so grateful to our customers, retailers, distributors, environmental partners and team members who have contributed to these achievements.”

Nature’s Logic and eShipping Achieve Carbon Neutral Distribution

Sustainability-focused Natural Pet Food and its 3PL Partner Create Groundbreaking
Eco-Friendly Shipping and Warehousing Program

 Lincoln, Neb. (April 16, 2021) – Nature’s Logic™, the pioneer creators of 100% natural pet food with NO synthetic vitamins, and eShipping, a nationwide distribution chain management services and technology provider, announced they have achieved 100% carbon neutral shipping and warehousing for Nature’s Logic.

“This is a major milestone for the pet industry,” said Nature’s Logic CEO David Yaskulka, who has led a series of industry sustainability “firsts” in his two-year tenure, including the award-winning Clean Food, Clean Energy program, and the industry’s first Certified Plastic Neutral products.

“We still have far to go to accomplish our mission, to apply the logic of nature to everything we touch,“ said Yaskulka, “but I’m proud to realize this significant goal with our partners at eShipping.”

“We’re thrilled to help Nature’s Logic achieve carbon neutrality,” said Chad Earwood, Founder and CEO of eShipping. “Nature’s Logic is our first carbon neutral client, but we’re confident this will create a path for many more to come. As a business in the transportation and logistics space, this partnership also serves as a catalyst for our team to continue looking for ways to minimize our own environmental impact in our office and warehouse locations nationwide.”

Toward that goal, eShipping also joined the Pet Sustainability Coalition as a Sustainability Champion level member. The Kansas City-based company is known for its longstanding commitment to its people and communities, and to driving “our hearts towards a bigger purpose beyond ourselves and our business.”

The carbon footprint of Nature’s Logic’s distribution at eShipping is calculated by measuring warehouse space, warehouse power sources (some of which were already using renewable electricity), and every aspect of its shipping, including types of transportation (such as full truck load, less-than truck load, rail and ship), weight of cargo, and distance.

“Setting and reaching a carbon neutrality goal is no easy task,” said Caitlyn Dudas, Executive Director of the Pet Sustainability Coalition. “Nature’s Logic is setting an exciting pace within the industry that will be hard to follow by many but sets the stage for others to take similar action toward a better future for pets, people and the planet”

The program’s carbon offsets are provided in partnership with Natural Capital Partners, recently named the best Voluntary Carbon Market offset provider by Environmental Finance for the 10th consecutive year. The social impact of the program is significant, investing in:

  • Two wind farms in Tamil Nadu, India with a total capacity of 74.25 MW, delivering approximately 100,000 MWh of clean renewable electricity (complementing Nature’s Logic’s domestic-focused Clean Food, Clean Energy investments)
  • Forest protection and the distribution of clean cookstoves in Africa, targeting the conservation of approximately 170,000 hectares of forest and promoting biodiversity.
  • Reducing the environmental impact of a landfill site through methane capture, electricity generation and wetland enhancement in North America.

Nature’s Logic also works with Nori for additional offsets supporting regenerative agriculture, and Ecodrive, planting 2,000 mangrove trees. The company is the premier sponsor of TreePlenish, a non-profit organization that is planting 15,000 trees with the help of high school students this spring. All of these efforts further support the brand’s carbon reduction goals.

Named as a Top-20 Sustainable Brand by the Pet Sustainability Coalition, Nature’s Logic is among leading companies that integrate environmental and social practices.

Sustainability is not only a tenet of Nature’s Logic mission, but a key factor in the company’s growth. Nature’s Logic was named to the 2020 Inc. 5000 America’s fastest-growing privately held companies list, ranking #251 in Consumer Products & Services.

Nature’s Voice Awards Announces Grand Prize Winner; Awards $10,000 Grant to Earth Uprising

International Youth Nonprofit that Combats the Effects of the Climate Crisis Honored

Seattle, Wash. (October 22, 2020) – The inaugural Greater Good Charities’ Nature’s Voice Awards, aiming to amplify the voice and impact of sustainability advocates across the globe, has announced Earth Uprising as the grand prize winner and awarded the organization a $10,000 grant. The grant is given by Greater Good Charities in partnership with Nature’s Logic, an environmentally-conscious pet food brand.

“Earth Uprising is a youth-led organization that is supported by adults, and the Nature’s Voice Award grant is exactly the kind of support we need,” said Brooke Nelson Muzzatti, Earth Uprising International Communications Team Member. “Currently, the youth climate movement is mostly uncompensated, but climate work needs to be accessible to those who must support themselves and their families, because volunteer work is a privilege many do not have. We can now continue to support local organizers in over 15 countries with more funds, tools, and resources to continue our mission of amplifying youth voices and projects while educating others about the climate crisis.”

Founded on Earth Day 2019, Earth Uprising is an international youth non-profit, with a large network of organizers from countries and cities around the world, that works to combat the effects of the climate crisis. Earth Uprising fosters connections between climate activists from across the globe through its global youth council to enhance its work. This global nonprofit has organized strikes, worked to create curriculums in climate education for schools, and provides support for local grassroots action to those most impacted by the climate crisis.

Greater Good Charities, a charitable organization devoted to improving the health and well-being of people, pets, and the planet, and Nature’s Logic, a 100% natural pet food with no synthetic vitamins, created the new awards program to recognize organizations and individuals that excel at inspiring action and can serve as best practice examples for other environmental voices to increase their own impact.

Earth Uprising, along with 15 other honorees, demonstrated outstanding communication efforts – from social media to advertising to events and more – and were selected via nominations reviewed by Greater Good Charities. All non-profit winners, including Earth Uprising, received a $1,000 grant and had the opportunity to vie for the grand prize $10,000 grant. All winners received a gift of Nature’s Logic 100% natural pet food for their pet-loving constituents, where available.

A panel of judges active in the environmental sustainability sector selected Earth Uprising as the grand prize winner. The panel included: Patty Rose, Executive Director, Greenspace, NCR, board member New Partners Community Solar; Sarah Julian, Owner OffLeash Communications and Board member of the Pet Sustainability Coalition; Svanika Balasubramanian, Cofounder and CEO of rePurpose Global, the World’s First Plastic Credit Platform; Gillian Davies, Founding Co-Leader of Society of Wetland Scientists Climate Change and Wetlands Initiative and SWS Past President; David Garfield Roland, Media Attorney, Producer of Love Thy Nature and Other Social Mission Films; Noah Horton, Chief Marketing Officer of Greater Good Charities; and Caroline Golon, VP Marketing for Nature’s Logic. Sustainability advocates and Nala Cat’s pet parents Shannon Ellis and Varisiri “Pookie” Methachittiphan served as the nominating chairs of the Nature’s Voice Awards.

Additional recipients of the Nature’s Voice Awards recognized for their exemplary communication efforts include Ugandan activist Vanessa Nakate; Scott Black; Invertebrate conservationist and executive director of the Xerces Society; the Sierra Club Hawaii Chapter Vice-Chair Lucienne de Naie; and Mari Copeny, also known as “Little Miss Flint.”

Nature’s Logic is a brand dedicated to sustainability, so sponsoring these awards aligns with the company’s mission. Those efforts include buying 1 kWh of renewable energy for every pound of pet food the company sells. The energy Nature’s Logic purchases goes towards powering their headquarters with renewable energy, the manufacturing of their kibble and bags, and the operations of their partners, including Greater Good Charities.

Nominations are Open for all Categories including Pet and Animal Welfare

Seattle, Wash. (August 6, 2020) – The inaugural GreaterGood.org Nature’s Voice Awards, aiming to amplify the voice and impact of sustainability advocates across the globe, has opened nominations. The awards committee is seeking exceptional voices for nature from individuals, non-profits, and businesses across all categories including pet and animal welfare.

GreaterGood.org, a charitable organization devoted to improving the health and well-being of people, pets, and the planet, and Nature’s Logic, a 100% natural pet food with no synthetic vitamins, created the new awards program to recognize organizations and individuals that excel at inspiring action and can serve as best practice examples for other environmental voices to increase their own impact.

“We understand that strong voices for the environment are critical, now more than ever,” explained Liz Baker, CEO of GreaterGood.org. “This campaign celebrates organizations of all sizes across the world who innovate, inspire others, and amplify nature’s voice to help the earth.”

One top winner, which will receive national recognition and a $10,000 grant from GreaterGood.org, will be selected from among the winners by a panel of judges active in the environmental sustainability sector. The panel includes: Patty Rose, Executive Director, Greenspace, NCR, board member New Partners Community Solar; Caitlyn Dudas, Executive Director, Pet Sustainability Coalition; Sarah Julian, Owner OffLeash Communications and Board member of the Pet Sustainability Coalition; Svanika Balasubramanian, Cofounder and CEO of rePurpose Global, the World’s First Plastic Credit Platform; Gillian Davies, Founding Co-Leader of Society of Wetland Scientists Climate Change and Wetlands Initiative and SWS Past President; David Garfield Roland, Media Attorney, Producer of Love Thy Nature and Other Social Mission Films; Noah Horton, Chief Marketing Officer of GreaterGood.org; and Caroline Golon, VP Marketing for Nature’s Logic. Sustainability advocates and Nala Cat’s pet parents Shannon Ellis and Varisiri “Pookie” Methachittiphan serve as the nominating chairs of the Nature’s Voice Awards.

Winners that demonstrate outstanding communication efforts – from social media to advertising to events and more – are selected via crowdsourced nominations reviewed by GreaterGood.org. Winners will receive national and local recognition, and, for non-profits, a $1,000 grant from GreaterGood.org. All winners receive a gift of Nature’s Logic 100% natural pet food for their pet-loving constituents, where available.

“There are so many groups and individuals doing truly extraordinary work in their communities and across the globe,” said David Yaskulka, CEO of Nature’s Logic. “We want to recognize advocates with voices inspiring more earth-friendly consumer, business, voter and community behavior.”

Nature’s Logic is a brand dedicated to sustainability, so sponsoring these awards aligns with their company’s mission. “We aspire to apply the logic of nature to everything we touch,” Yaskulka said. “Supporting environmental efforts is a cornerstone of our business.”

Those efforts include buying 1 kWh of renewable energy for every pound of pet food the company sells. The energy Nature’s Logic purchases goes towards powering their headquarters with renewable energy, the manufacturing of their kibble and bags, and the operations of their partners, including GreaterGood.org.

GreaterGood.org is best known for its disaster relief efforts, as well as signature programs such as The Jackson Galaxy Project, Rescue Bank, Rescue Rebuild, Girls’ Voices, and more. For years, GreaterGood.org has focused on supporting and funding efforts around sustainability so these awards are another way the non-profit can support initiatives both small and large.

“As a FEMA disaster relief partner, we see first-hand the worst of taking the earth for granted. What’s key to making sustainability efforts grow is communication,” said Baker. “Communication inspires action so more people get involved either by volunteering, donating or simply participating in activities that will make a difference. We believe this program can make a direct impact on changing behavior and doing better for our planet. And that’s the ultimate goal.”

Nominations can be made via naturesvoiceawards.org or by emailing naturesvoice@greatergood.org. The nomination period runs through August 17. The $10,000 grand prize winner will be announced in September.

Nature’s Logic Expands Marketing Team, Names Golon VP

Growing Business Engages a New Team of Marketing Experts Focused on Supporting Retail

(Lincoln, Neb. August 5, 2020) Nature’s Logic™, the pioneer creators of 100% natural food for dogs and cats with NO synthetic vitamins, has multiplied its marketing team, and appointed industry leader Caroline Golon Vice President, Marketing. Golon is focused on growing Nature’s Logic through unique consumer campaigns and retailer support. To further promote retailers’ curbside and home delivery programs, and Nature’s Logic’s mission of environmental sustainability, the brand has added new marketing team members who are industry experts in social media, web development & design, digital design & packaging and public relations.

“We’re funneling the profits from our growth into marketing. And there’s no one more devoted to helping pets through natural nutrition, assisting pet retailers with community success and making a positive impact on the environment than Caroline,” said Nature’s Logic CEO David Yaskulka. “I’m thrilled to have Caroline and her team’s expertise advocating for 100% natural nutrition for pets, and applying the logic of nature to everything we touch.”

It’s already started to pay off, as Nature’s Logic is the fastest-growing top-50 pet food in pet specialty in 2020 – and it was also #1 in 2019 (Nielsen data). Nature’s Logic was named a top-20 brand for sustainability by the Pet Sustainability Coalition, and has been recognized with a series of recent awards.

Golon, who has consulted for Nature’s Logic since early 2019, has developed marketing programs and content for pet food, cat litter, toys, grooming products, dog treadmills, pet technology, and leading nonprofits. She’s been a frequent contributor to leading pet-focused consumer media. She’s also the founder of High Paw Media, creator of multiple pet sites, and co-founder of BlogPaws.

Golon joins Nature’s Logic leadership team along with company founder and Chief Product Development Officer Scott Freeman, VP Operations Marilyn Sherwin, and National Sales Director Skylar Clifton. Yaskulka, Sherwin, Golon, and the new marketing team worked together at Halo, Purely for Pets.

Unlike most “natural” brands in the market, Nature’s Logic kibble, canned, raw and treats are 100% natural, with NO synthetic vitamins and minerals. The nutrition comes from whole foods.

Golon helps promote the brand’s leadership role in the industry as a voice for sustainability and proud member of the Pet Sustainability Coalition. Working in its retailers’ communities, the expanded marketing team is effectively positioning the brand with Millennials, the largest and fastest-growing segment of pet parents, for whom natural nutrition and sustainability are top concerns.

He brings a decade of executive experience at a leading natural pet food company, and over two decades in the health and sustainability industries.

“100% natural is defining the future of pet food,” said Yaskulka. “Nature’s Logic is the top innovator, truly following nature’s rules for nutrition. I’m thrilled to work with the staff, retailers, customers, and consumers who have shown the way pet food should be, to grow the brand’s impact in the market.

“I look forward to working with company founder Scott Freeman, who has expertly applied the logic of nature to pet food,” he said. “Scott may have been the first to recognize the benefits of whole food nutrition without using the synthetic vitamins prevalent in leading ‘natural’ pet foods.” Freeman will continue creating new product lines for the company.

“Nature’s Logic doesn’t follow industry trends — we follow nature’s rules,” said Freeman. “I look forward to working with David to do what’s right for dogs and cats, and for our natural environment.”
