Stylish Eco-Friendly Pet Products for World Environment Day

 

What makes a pet product eco-friendly or sustainable?

When we’re looking for an environmentally-friendly dog product or accessory, here’s 3 questions we like to ask:

WHAT IS IT MADE FROM?

Eco-friendly pet products are made from sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable materials that have minimal impact on the environment. Materials such as bamboo, hemp, organic cotton, recycled plastics, and natural rubber are good examples of eco-friendly materials.

HOW IS IT MADE?

The manufacturing process that goes into eco-friendly pet products should be environmentally responsible, using renewable energy sources, minimising waste and emissions, and reducing the use of harmful chemicals. 

HOW IS IT PACKAGED? 

Sustainable pet products should have minimal packaging, or if it does, the packaging should ideally be made from recyclable or biodegradable materials. Eco-friendly packaging materials include recycled paper, cardboard, and biodegradable plastics made from plant-based materials.

Eco-Friendly Pet Products We’ve Tried Firsthand

The truth is, while many of us do our best to reduce waste and make eco-friendly choices in our busy day-to-day lives, often we forget about the environmental impact of the pet products we purchase.

So, we hope this list of great quality, earth-friendly and sustainable pet products puts you on the path to a cleaner and greener lifestyle with your pup!

To kick things off, we’re sharing a few eco-friendly pet products we have personal experience using ourselves.

1. Outback Tails Eco-Friendly Dog Toys

Pretty Fluffy - Recycled Dog Toys for a Neutral Home _Outback Tails_Darren the Dingo Dog Toy

Not only is the Outback Tails range of 100% vegan, eco-friendly dog toys gentle on the environment – it features adorable native Australian animals that make it one of the cutest dog toy collections going ’round.

Made from natural wool felt and filled with natural jute, we can tell you from personal experience that these sustainable dog toys are as sturdy and hardwearing as they come.

We’ve had our Darren the Dingo (pictured) for 18 months and it still looks new! An excellent long-lasting dog toy for chewers and tuggers.

You’ll also feel good knowing a percentage of sales are donated to Australian wildlife charities.

2. The Hound Lab Environmentally-Friendly Dog Shampoo & Conditioner

Review: The Hound Lab - Australian 100% Natural Dog Shampoo & Conditioner

Based in Byron Bay, The Hound Lab’s boutique range of dog grooming products keep your pup clean, happy and healthy while treading gently on the earth.

Having personally tested their all-natural dog shampoo and conditioner, Ziggy’s coat was left feeling soft and looking shiny, while the conditioner was nourishing on his dry and itchy skin too. With his history of skin allergies, we were very happy to see no irritation or scratching following his baths – a HUGE plus!

The Hound Lab’s commitment to sustainable practices means a minimal approach is taken to every aspect of the business, from batches being produced in small quantities, to eco-conscious packaging.

See our detailed review of The Hound Lab for more information.

3. Herzog Recycled Dog Collar

The Recycled Ripstop Collar by Herzog is another stylish and sustainable dog product we’ve personally tried, and there’s quite a few reasons why we loved it!

Made from waterproof silicone and recycled ripstop fabric, this modern designer dog collar is environmentally friendly for sure, but it’s also tough and made to last.

The collar comes with a matching lead which has been part of Ziggy’s wardrobe for over 3 years now. And despite many beach trips, outdoor adventures and repeated wear, it’s still in excellent condition.

It’s super easy to clean too, which is a big plus for us dog mums!

4. Nontre.Co Natural Pet Care Range

Nontre.Co Natural Pet Care Range - Pet Wash and Pet Odour Eliminator

Just like these luxury brands that began catering for canines, Nontre’s approach to earth-wise luxury products has recently extended to pets – and we love to see it!

Made from plant-based ingredients, Nontre’s non-toxic, 100% Natural Pet Wash is a lovely gentle formula that foams up nicely and always leaves Sunny and Ziggy’s coats feeling super soft and clean. Just like their vegan and biodegradable Pet Odour Eliminator and Deodoriser, the smell is beautiful and fresh without being over-powering.

The compostable bamboo pet brush, made from sustainable coconut and vegetable fibres, has also been great for giving our boys a soft, gentle brush they always enjoy (following a more thorough groom session with our de-matting comb! #cockerspaniellife)
