These Green Pet Products Will Have You Wagging Your Tail

Most pet supplies, when it comes down to it, are terrible for both our pets and the environment. They’re typically made from cheap, unrecycleable plastics that break down during daily play, are full of chemicals and additives that aren’t good of your pets, and usually end up in the landfill far sooner than expected.

Fortunately, finding natural, eco-friendly pet products gets easier every day, thanks primarily to the various companies who recognized this gap and took action. The products listed below are just the right combination of durable, stylish and sustainable. And you can rest assured that the teams that created them have the best interest of your pets and the planet in mind!

Billy Wolf: Fine K9 Coatery sources vintage, American-made fabrics and salvaged buttons to create their dapper dog coats. Since their launch seven years ago, they’ve also introduced linen bandanas, leashes and collars, and cotton canvas toys. I just might want some of those bandanas for myself…

I don't like clothes for animals BUT my Snoopy used to crawl under cloths and try to ''wear'' them!!! So we made a little jacket with a white shirt and tie that he wore when friends were expected to come - and he loved it.

I fully agree with some Care2 members, when they say dogs do not need clothing. This is for 100 % correct !! Apart from a warm coat (which I put on my little Sheba as well when we made long walks when it was bitter cold). I even had made that coat myself, using a double layer of thick cotton, and a lining of polyester. Although she was not happy when I put it on, she never suffered any cold.
But putting other clothing on your little dogs is pure stupid and a waste of money. They would better donate that money to a shelter instead of making fools of their dogs. The same applies for the ridiculous hair colors used for dogs. I can not imagine that I have ever seen dogs in purple, blue, green or rose where I live. May be we are not so ridiculous as some American women ??
