About Us

Written by Mahonri Gibson

Sailing Dog Dry Goods is a local Seattle-based startup focused on providing sustainable distribution for Western Washington State. We’re based on the idea that there are solutions to our society’s out of control global impact, while still allowing us all to maintain a high-standard of living and a healthy economy.

What We’re Doing Right Now

Development of a Low-Impact Distribution System

Currently, our main focus is on researching and developing the most efficient, lowest impact way to distribute products throughout the Salish Sea & Western Washington State. Whether this is sailing vessels, biodiesel vehicles, electric trucks, bicycles, or some combination of all four. We hope to discover if it is possible to drastically reduce the impact of shipping on our local environment, while exceeding the needs of local businesses and consumers.

Working with the Community

At the same time, we’re trying to find as many sustainably produced, local products as we can, with the goal of becoming the go–to distributor for these products. If you manufacture products in Western Washington, or operate a retail location selling local goods, we would love to hear from you about what you’re looking for in a distributor!

Small Scale Deliveries

Right now, we’re delivering coffee from Middle Fork Roasters, a local Seattle roaster. Most deliveries are being done utilizing a small vehicle running on 100% biodiesel, which is made from recycled vegetable oils, since we don’t currently have the volume necessary to make sailboat deliveries economical or practical.
