5 recycled plastic products for planet-friendly pets

By March 8, 2024March 28th, 2024No Comments

Dogs are famously man’s best friend. But did you know that pampering your pooch can sometimes come at a cost for people and the planet. Even the cutest pup can chew through a new toy in seconds, sending more plastic to landfill, and we simply cannot feed our pets with a zero carbon footprint. 

There are better plastic choices pet owners can make though, and more environmentally friendly options when it comes to looking after our furry friends.

Just in time for 2024’s edition of Crufts, below are 5 recycled plastic products for planet-friendly pets.

1. THE PAWFUME SHOP’S Baltic Amber Pet Perfume – Eco Range 100ml 

There’s no fancier way to treat a four-legged friend than with a sweet-smelling fragrance. The Pawfume Shop was founded in 2015 on the back of years of research and now produces an exquisite range of doggy fragrances that mirror designer perfumes. Products like John Paw Gotea and Fur Eternity are worth your time for their names alone while the Shop’s recently launched eco range- with top notes of Pink Pepper, Violet Leaves and Mandarin Orange of course- all come packaged in 100% Prevented Ocean Plastic™ bottles. 

2. BETTY & BUTCH’S Sea Turtle Puppy Toy     

Betty & Butch is a business built on policies that protect the planet. From their natural dog treats down to their recycled packaging the Manchester-based brand are intent on doing the least damage to the environment while offering the most fun for your furry friends. Betty & Butch treat boxes are fully recyclable, their food bags compostable, and this sea turtle puppy toy is just one of their product choices that’s made from recycled plastic.

3. WILD & SEA’S Bergamot & Sweet Orange Organic Dog Shampoo 

The natural dog shampoos made by the team at Wild & Sea (The artists formerly known as Waggy’s) have been crafted with certified organic ingredients and enriched with organic coconut and botanical oils before being packaged in neat Prevented Ocean Plastic™ bottles. 
The UK brand also offer carbon-neutral shipping on all orders.

4. BILLY + MARGOT’S Turkey Superfood Raw Dog Food

Billy + Margot’s raw pet food recipes are UK Pet Food Certified with full traceability across the full range from farm to bowl. It makes perfect sense then that they are packaged in Prevented Ocean Plastic™, a recycled material made from PET bottles with full traceability to their coastline of collection. The UK brand’s new tubs are made from 100% recycled materials and are 100% recyclable.

5. BENYFIT’S Succulent Beef Complete Adult Raw Working Dog Food

Benyfit Natural are built on a simple premise to put people and the planet (and definitely puppies too) first. When the premium raw dog food brand looked at all the options for the packaging of their award-winning recipes, they didn’t find a solution that worked quite as well as plastic. Rather than use new plastic though, they partnered with Prevented Ocean Plastic™ to create a tub made from recycled plastic collected from coastlines across the globe, that would have otherwise polluted our oceans.

Benyfit Natural make 100% natural, premium raw dog food. They use ethically sourced ingredients to create nutritious and delicious raw meals that dogs love. All of their complete meals are made in small batches at their East Sussex headquarters, and packaged in Prevented Ocean Plastic™.

Prevented Ocean Plastic™ is high quality, certified recycled plastic that has been collected from coastal areas at risk of ocean plastic pollution. Used by supermarkets and brands around the world, it meets regulatory health and safety standards, is traceable back to source and can be identified on-pack through its distinctive triangular logo. Prevented Ocean Plastic™ was an official nominee for the 2023 Earthshot Prize, and counts Lidl, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Booths Supermarket as key partners, along with major manufacturing partners such as Groupe Guillin, Spectra Packaging, and Berry Global for offerings across multiple product categories, including fish, poultry, soft fruits, pet food, personal care, and home cleaning.
