5 Eco Friendly Dog Products To Reduce Your Global Pawprint
Hello everyone, and welcome to another episode of the world-famous River Dogs dog blog (the world being the Tadcaster doggy day care scene, but you can’t blame us for aiming big!). We hope that your four-legged friends have managed to get on well with their dog films from last week and that their agents aren’t demanding too many homemade dog treats to be sent to their dressing rooms! We also hope that you haven’t needed to use a submarine to get around this past few days and that some of our dog walking rainy day essentials might have come in handy while you’ve been out and about on your favourite dog walks in Tadcaster! We’re looking at eco-friendly dog products today, and how you can help to make the world a greener place for the dogs of the future.
When we’re not scratching a new dog behind the ears or rubbing a belly or two, we spend our time scouring the internet for the latest and greatest doggy day care gear for our poochy-pals, and we’ve found some great eco-friendly alternatives to some of the everyday products that we all use. Check out our five favourite items below, and click the links to purchase them!
1. Eco-friendly Dog Beds
When it comes to bedtime, us humans enjoy getting cosy under a thick duvet and sinking back into a comfortable mattress. We spend hours picking the right set up, so it’s only right that your furry friends get a good nights sleep too. The first item on our list of the best eco-friendly dog products is this box bed from Barks and Bunnies, filled with a 100% recycled green-fibre fill which is both resilient and comfortable. The eco-stuffing is insulating, so your dog won’t get cold on those winter nights, and the one-piece design is not only supportive and helps to maintain the beds shape after washing, but it will also stop any nasty draughts too! Plus all dogs love tartan, right?
2. Poo Bags
The next item on our list of eco-friendly dog products is one that we dog owners never leave the house without (as long as we have our dogs with us, of course). These Earth Rated Dog Poop bags have a 5-star rating on Amazon and have been reviewed by over 21-thousand people; that says it all really! These leak-proof, lavender-scented bags are made from recyclable materials and have an EPI-additive that helps the bags to break down over time. They come in handy refill rolls that are the perfect size for your pocket, and they’re super good for the environment! Click below to stock your pockets up with these eco-rolls!
3. Doggy Shampoo
No one wants that soggy doggy smell in their house, which is why our next eco-friendly dog products entry is a must-have essential. WildWash Pro is the coolest shampoo on the block, keeping your four-legged friends fresh and soft no matter the weather. Each bottle is jam-packed full with 100% essential oils and the deodorising scents of Peppermint, Lemongrass, and Rosemary. With the equivalent of 10L of shampoo inside every super-concentrated bottle, you can neutralise any toxins and bacteria in your dog’s fur while leaving them sweet-smelling, funky fresh, and squeaky clean, all while being super green!
4. Eco-friendly Dog Food
Your dog deserves the best, which is why Edgard & Cooper dog food should definitely be on your eco-friendly dog products wishlist. With a mixture of tasty dry food and fresh meat dishes (no processed foods in sight!), Edgard & Cooper make delicious dog food for every breed and size of pooch. Whether your dog likes baked kibble or tasty eco-friendly treats, these guys have something for everyone, and their packets are all biodegradable too! Their website makes for an interesting read, and the prices are very respectable. Plus there’s free shipping on orders over £20! Click the link below to head on over and check out their products!
5. Dog Treats
The final item on our list of the best eco-friendly dog products not only comes in plastic-free packaging, but it’s 100% natural and aids joint support too! These grain-free Turkey flavoured training treats are crammed with soothing and calming ingredients that will make your dog feel like he or she is on a relaxing spa weekend. Scrumbles treats are made locally in the U.K and Ireland and promote a healthy digestive system through the aid of the probiotics found in slippery elm. Each treat is free from common allergens and other artificial flavourings, with no excess or added sugars or salts in sight. They’re great as a treat when training or a bedtime snack; they sound so good that I wish I could eat them!
So there we have it, folks! We hope that you have enjoyed swotting up on some of the top eco-friendly dog products on the market today and that you might swap out some of your existing kit for some of these greener alternatives! Always remember to consult your vet if you’re unsure about any new treats or foods first, and happy browsing!
