Being sustainable in our everyday lives is becoming an ambition for more and more people.
Did you also know that we have just launched our own range of plastic free treats? These gorgeous single protein treats are fully traceable from the farm, and come in a compostable pouch.
The term biodegradability is a tricky one. One that we try and stay away from as its hard to completely know what is actually doing more harm than good. Plastics which biodegrade (sometimes referred to as oxi-plastics) are actually still plastics that just breakdown into tiny little pieces. Now, depending on the final destination of these pieces of plastic, they could be contributing to the know well known issue of micro plastics which end up in water ways. We recommend compostable bags as this takes away any ambiguity regarding their eventual demise!
It is becoming increasingly easier to find dog toys that are made from natural materials. Materials such as hemp, bamboo and cotton can be used to create natural rope toys. Just be aware that some cottons may be dyed with synthetic colourings, which kind of negates the point.
While not all of our Dog subscription boxes are entirely plastic free (we hope to get there soon!) All of the toys we provide will be sustainable - whether that be made from natural materials like the above, or they will be 100% recyclable after use. We also try to pick super high quality toys so that they last longer before their life comes to an end!
