4 Eco-Friendly Products for your Pup’s Sustainable Lifestyle

4 Eco-Friendly Products for your Pup’s Sustainable Lifestyle

Did you know that your pet’s overall environmental (paw)print may be actually large? Let’s take a step back and put our pups' training on hold, as we work on developing our own capacity as dog owners just simply to advocate for environmentally responsible pet items. By doing this, we might even achieve zero waste status for pet owners globally. By choosing sustainable pet items made of natural, organic, and recycled materials, it is somewhat possible to have a zero-waste dog as your pet.


Safe for the Environment–and for Pets!

With the current diminishing state of the environment, it is important to consider how our choices–big or small-may impact the planet. This is especially true, even when it comes to our furry four-legged friends! Many pet owners are making changes in their lifestyles by opting to support and rigorously use eco-friendly products for their dogs. 


Sustainable Pet Products That Every Pet Owner Should Have


Let’s explore some of the best sustainable options for you and your pup! Discover more by reading below:


#1 Eco-Friendly Toys 

Toys are a great way to keep your pup entertained and occupied throughout the day. For those looking for sustainable options, look no further than hemp toys. Hemp is one of the most eco-friendly materials out there because it requires less water and energy to produce than cotton and other materials. Additionally, hemp toys are made with organic cotton—a natural material that will not harm your pup if they chew on it. Additionally, some hemp toys come in fun shapes and colors which can provide hours of entertainment for your pup! 

# 2 Eco-Friendly Grooming Products 

Grooming products can also be a great way to give your pup sustainable options. Try looking for shampoos and conditioners that use natural ingredients such as aloe vera or coconut oil instead of harsh chemicals that can damage both your and your pup's skin.

If you're looking for something more specific, try using a specialized shampoo such as oatmeal shampoo or flea and tick shampoo which will help protect your pup against pests while still being kind to the environment. Additionally, opt for reusable grooming tools instead of disposable ones which can pile up over time and create unnecessary waste.  

#3 Eco-Friendly Pet Collars 

Eco-friendly accessories can be a great addition to any pup's wardrobe! Look for collars made from recycled materials such as plastic bottles or cork fabric which is made entirely from cork trees without using any synthetic materials or fabrics. Recycled collars often come in bright colors that won't fade over time which makes them perfect for active pups who love exploring outdoors or running around the park with their owners! 

#4 Eco-Friendly Pet Beds

Our pups deserve a good night’s rest, so let’s kick off with a few suggestions that will help your fur baby feel at ease all the while “pawing lightly” on the planet. We recommend dog beds that are made from organic cotton–which are comfy enough for even the pickiest pups! There are some brands with cushion beds that are certified and made from recycled plastic bottles. You may also find pet mattresses that are made from non-toxic, easy-to-clean materials. Some even have natural fiber exteriors, sustainable dyes, and filling made from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles.
