Aussie Pet Mobile Sonoma County

Aussie Pet Mobile Sonoma County is an environmentally innovative business that provides mobile grooming services for all breeds of cats and dogs. By coming to the customer, they reduce the number of vehicle trips pet owners take to drop off and pick up pets from stationary grooming sites. Their one-on-one service is provided in a self-contained vehicle that utilizes a rooftop mounted solar panel for generating salon power needs and the van runs on a Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC four cylinder diesel engine. At their office space, they recently installed low-flow aerators in bathrooms, conducted indoor audits to detect leaks, replaced MR-16 halogen lamps with LED models, replaced incandescent bulbs with LED models, switched to environmentally friendly cleaning products, and adopted an Environmental Policy Statement. Additionally, they use biodegradable grooming products and recycle 100% of the used grooming water in their landscape. In 2015, they completed an audit of their actions and found that their annual savings were 3,770 KWh, 3,410 gallons of water, and 2,429 pounds of CO2. In the spirit of continual improvement, they have an Environmental Policy Statement and Employee Education program in place and constantly look to their employees, suppliers, and customers for ways to become more sustainable. Aussie Pet Mobile Sonoma County is a certified Sonoma County Green Business, a member of the Joint District Spare the Air Program, and partners with the Santa Rosa Junior College Foundation.
