There’s a whole lot more to mount ara™
We’re not just about making cool, fun, and science-based pet products. We believe we have the ability and responsibility to make a difference. That’s why every purchase you make helps support the goals of small businesses fighting for sustainability, fighting to innovate, and dreaming up new ways to make a difference.
Did You Know?
Almost 50% of small businesses fail in the first 5 years.
71% of sustainable business initiatives are started by small business owners.
That means the majority of new sustainable products and ideas never make it to market in any real way.
Together, we can change that!
Mount Ara is committed to sourcing ingredients and doing business with a network of like-minded companies that focus on sustainability. Each small business that Mount Ara partners with has been carefully chosen for their dedication not only to sustainable initiatives, but for the methods they use in making a difference. While we might be “small,” our impact is great!
When we set out to find great companies with awesome ideals, what we found were companies in need of support. That’s why when you buy a mount ara™ product, your money is going towards countless companies across our network continuing to fund their dreams of making the lives of everyone and everything on this planet just a little bit better!
We Take Pride in Our Partnerships.
Working in collaboration with local city communities, Just Roots creates sustainable, functioning grow-gardens across the city of Chicago using abandoned or derelict business plots or land grants. Each garden is sustainable, organic and helps promote education and health in the community. The organics grown are given back to shelters or go to local business to help fund further development of the program.

In their quest to save the honeybee, City Bee Savers has brought a unique model to the market by incorporating beekeeping into the city’s business district.
