Our Favourite Eco-Friendly Products For Pooches
by Laura Barns
I know I'm not the only person out there who spoils their dog like he's a small human. (No regrets).
But when it comes to looking for planet-friendly dog toys and other eco-friendly dog products, I must admit I'm not always the most responsible. After all, my dog Ralph is literally happy playing with a plastic spoon for half an hour. So I've taken a look at some sustainable dog products in the UK to help make his play time (and nap time, and walkies) greener. Here are some of the best products I found in my search.
Beco Pets Beco Bowl
A beautiful pet food and drink bowl made from mostly waste plant fibre material - the most ethical form of biodegradable plastic replacement! Becobowls are available in 5 sizes (from 26cm diameter to 8.5cm) meaning there’s a Beco Bowl for every pet! They come in four different colours.
Beco Pets Beco Rope
Made from natural hemp, the Beco Rope toys are eco-friendly but also tough and durable to withstand hours of play. Hemp is a very eco material as no pesticides are used in the growing process.
Adriatic Eco Dog Bed (Nest)
If you'd like your canine’s sleeping spot to be as stylish and sustainable as your interior, then the eco-friendly Adriatic dog nest bed is the obvious choice. Made from durable quality recycled polyester fabric, it's packed full of recycled polyester fibre for ultimate comfort.
Bengal Eco Dog Collar
This stylish, British designed collar is made from recycled clothing and ocean-bound plastic. It's fitted out with top-quality solid nickel fixings and is built to last, so you won't need to replace it after a few months, adding to its green credentials.
Green & Wild's Stanley The Starfish
Green & Wilds Stanley the Starfish is an eco-friendly dog toy made from natural sustainable materials that not only come together to ensure a super fun toy for your dog but care for the environment too. Made with jute a natural, sustainable plant fibre and an outer layer of suede which is a by-product and ensures that this material is not wasted.
The Hurley is a fantastic all-round dog toy, it's a stick, a bone and a ball all wrapped up in one easy package that can be played with on land or in water. Throw it for games of fetch and because it's flexible (but super durable too) it's safe for your dog to catch, chew and carry. No broken teeth, just hours of fun games that your dog will love.
