five sustainable pet product companies we love

dd22-furley-lifestyleif you haven’t noticed, sustainability is pretty important to us. i mean, the core of our business is built on creating a sustainably-focused solution to the age-old problem of smelly, dirty, headed-to-the-landfill dog beds. but we aren’t the only company in the industry that has their eye on doing good in the world and for the world. and since you are a pet owner who prioritizes sustainably-focused do-gooders in your product purchases, we thought you’d be interested to know who else we love and why.

(by the way, our entire team uses the products on this list – they’re that good.)

from nose balms and tooth salts, to shampoos and conditioners, Pura Naturals is dedicated to delivering the highest quality products using only the best materials the Earth has to offer. that dedication means they deliver USDA certified organic ingredients, plant based foams and plastics, and biodegradable elements that have amazing natural properties – like rice hulls – in every product. the best part is, those ingredients not only make the SAFEST product but also the most comfortable – they won’t irritate the skin, scents and perfumes that don’t trigger allergies, and materials that are relaxing, safe, renewable and earth friendly.

Dogs Love Kale AppleCrisp

this company has been racking up industry awards since their launch, and for good reason! Dogs LOVE Kale has made kale the main ingredient in their new healthy, all natural, gluten/grain free treats. kale is a super antioxidant that contains essential vitamins including: beta carotene, calcium, vitamin K, vitamin C, and lutein. kale and flax seed aid in making your dog’s coat softer and shinier, with healthier skin underneath. flaxseed also provides fiber in your dog’s diet.

are you a regular composter? then this earth-saving product is right up your alley. BioBags’ goal is to help divert all naturally organic waste from entering our landfills and dog poop is on their list. BioBags can be consumed by micro-organisms that live in our soils. because they use starches from renewable crops, their bags can be readily composted along with organic waste in municipal composting facilities. it’s a big step for waste stream management!
