6 Awesomely Eco-Friendly Dog Beds

  • 2 of 7

This “eco-tech bed” from Chazhound.com is made from over 20 plastic bottles from landfills. The bed is lined with eco-tech polar fleece (comfy!) and the outside is a waterproof nylon akin to tent material. The bottom cushion is made from orthopedic foam, making this an all-around badass bed! ($90, free shipping)

I have an Irish Wolf Hound and finding a bed big enough for her was hard. I found that a used crib mattress from the thrift shop ($20.00) worked great and the crib sheet can be pulled off and washed.

I've seen beds on the Drs. Foster & Smith website (and in the catalog) that are made out of recycled materials, too.

I like the idea that some of the bed are made eco-friendly, I also like that their do not look like "Princess beds" , but sadly much to excpensive. Bad that you have to have a deep pocket to live eco friendly. So I go back and do my own out of recycling old stuff, which "snickers" like because it smells like home.

I would rather make my own. But these ideas would be good for someone not as DIY-inclined as I am. Thanks!

Looks great! I'm thinking I may try it with cooked, diced butternut squash instead of pureed.
