Go Green, Vote Tony In The Influence Project And Help Him Raise Eco-Awareness For Pets, People And The Planet

July 15, 2010

Tony de Vos is devoted to pets, people and the planet they share. He recognizes that by going green we can help our pets, our families and the world we leave behind for our children.  This encompasses everything Tony is about and defines all he does as a manufacturing executive, pet lover, husband, father, grandfather and human being. To draw attention to the green issues that are so important to him, Tony has joined Fast Company’s Influence Project.  He is inviting like-minded people who want to support him to cast their votes on

Tony isn’t just “running the race” in the Influence Project or “talking the talk” about green living, he’s most decidedly walking the walk too – investing his money, changing his lifestyle and taking on new challenges everyday to help make the world a greener place.

Tony has converted his manufacturing facilities in Azusa, California to 100% solar power; he’s reclaiming water used in manufacturing for landscaping, and using LED lighting and special light gathering windows to reduce his electrical consumption in his new LEED building.  The products Tony makes are biodegradable and packaged in recyclable bottles and caps, and made by solar power.

In 2008 he formed The Crazy Pet Children’s Foundation to support programs that help demonstrate how caring for a pet develops children’s character. Now, he’s taking on another initiative, manufacturing special cleaning products for the sea birds and waterfowl covered by oil from the BP oil spill that’s devastating our environment.

Imagine how much cleaner our planet would be, if other people (especially manufacturers) took Tony’s lead. Anyone who supports Tony’s efforts can help him get the word out by voting for him in the FastCompany Influence Project –

The Influence Project is FastCompany magazine’s experimental viral marketing campaign developed to determine the most influential person online.  The magazine will announce the winner in its November issue.  Tony believes that by participating in the project, he can draw more attention to the importance of everyone making green choices so one by one we change the future of our environment, by asking people to vote for him and become one bigger voice working together for the same goal .  Anyone who needs assistance voting can contact  or call 248-374-2882.

Based in Azusa, California, Cardinal Pet Care’s manufacturing (Cardinal Laboratories) and distribution center is a 100% solar-powered facility.  The 60-year-old pet product company is a pioneer in green technology, being the first in the pet industry – and in its city – to manufacture products without any carbon footprint, using solar energy exclusively.  Its products, which include Viva La Dog Spa pet shampoos and conditioners and Pet Botanics Omega Treats for Dogs, are sold at pet retailers nationwide.  For more information, contact Cardinal Pet Care at 800-433-7387 or visit
