11 Eco-Friendly Cat Products
Earth Month is officially here and even though we gave you 6 Products to Help You (And Your Pets) Be More Eco-Friendly in 2021 in January, we decided we couldn’t stop there. We’ve dug deep into the holes of the internet to find you even more products to help you and your kitty show the environment some love this Earth Month (and beyond!).
If you’re looking for a toy for your kitty that lets them play a fun game of hide and seek, then look no further than SnugglyCat’s Ripple Rug. Made right here in the USA out of recycled plastic bottles, this rug features two pieces that can be rearranged to keep the fun going. The top piece has holes that your cat can crawl in and out of, making it a perfect hiding place–and the perfect place to jump out at you from.
P.L.A.Y. Chill Pads
P.L.A.Y. pet chill pads are eco-friendly pet beds made with PlanetFill® filler, which is made from 100% post-consumer certified safe recycled plastic bottles. They come in a huge variety of colors to fit your and your pet’s personal style (and most pet crates, too!) and are made to be machine washable and dryer friendly so you can take care of accidental messes with ease.
Cork Bird Cat Toys
These cute cat toys made out of natural cork are irregularly shaped, so when your kitty swats it around they’ll never know which direction it’ll go. Lightweight and made with a soft outside and catnip inside, this toy is one your cat is sure to swat or carry around the house all day long.
Friendsheep Eco Wool Cat Ball Toy
These sustainable wool cat toys are a great option to keep your kitty occupied. Made from cruelty-free certified New Zealand wool and eco-friendly dyes, these toys are made with fun and the environment both in mind. Friendsheep is on a mission to be gentle on the earth–from sustainable packaging to using 100% recyclable and compostable paper packing materials, this is a toy you can feel good about buying your cat.
Wool Dryer Balls
One of the simplest pleasures in life is the smell of freshly dried laundry! Many people use dryer sheets to get that freshness, but did you know there is an eco-friendly and reusable alternative? Instead of dryer sheets, you can use wool balls that are free from fillers, chemicals or synthetics, which is very helpful if you or any family members have sensitive skin. In addition to decreasing your drying time, these Smart Sheep 100% New Zealand Wool Dryer Balls can last for 1000+ loads, reduces garbage waste and contains anti-static qualities to help reduce wrinkles and can collect lint and… PET HAIR! If you have a pet that sheds, you know you need multiple lines of defense when it comes to pet hair and clothes.
Roller Pet Hair Remover
Who’s gone through their fair share of lint rollers over the years? (Hand slowly raising…) If pet hair is an unwanted headache in your household try looking into the ChomChom Roller Pet Hair Remover. We love it because it’s a reusable option and pet parents love it because it actually works (they have nearly 60,000 reviews to back it up!). By sweeping the roller back and forth, an electrostatic charge is created to attract the pet hair to the roller. The roller doesn’t need batteries and the hair gets collected in a compartment that can easily be emptied out once it’s full. It works best on couches, beds, chairs and furniture! For clothes, be sure to lay them on a flat surface for the best results.
Cedarcide Cleaning Products
Everyone cleans their home, but how many of you are worried about the ingredients in your household cleaners? They may be known for their variety of pest sprays, but this Cedarcide All-Purpose Cleaner is non-toxic, made from essential oils, and is a great alternative to chemical based cleaners for your kitchen, bathroom, flooring, and pet spaces.
Ceramic Cat Bowl with Anti-Slip Bamboo Stand
According to PetMD, stainless steel bowls along with glass, ceramic or stoneware are some of the best alternative materials to plastic that you can use for your pet’s bowl. This ceramic cat bowl and stand is made of eco-friendly materials, high-quality ceramic and is lead-free to offer a safe eating experience for your kitty. There are several non-plastic options if you prefer a slow or elevated feeding experience for your cat.
ORE PET Canned Food Can Covers
Do you like to mix in or top off your cat’s favorite Earthborn Holistic kibble with our wet food recipes? With the Ore Pet Can Cover you can mix in half of the canned food at breakfast time, then place the silicone cover on the can to create a seal to preserve the wet cat food for freshness until your kitty’s next meal. Don’t forget to refrigerate! These covers are food-safe and feature three rims that allow it to work on various sizes of cans.
How many ziplock baggies did you use in 2020 and then throw away when you were done with them? Did you just cringe? Stasher bags are non-toxic silicone storage bags that are dishwasher, microwave, and freezer safe and come in all sorts of sizes for anything you’d need. They’re great for meal prepping, travel, and even storing things for your pets, like kibble, when you’re on the go. They even have a super convenient starter kit to get you all set and ready to ditch the wasteful plastic baggies.
