13 Eco-Friendly Dog Products

Earth month is finally here and we are so excited! As a company our goal is always to produce nutritious holistic food for your pets and create awareness about our environment, too! Staying with that, we’ve rounded up 13 products from companies with awesome environmental initiatives that will help you and your furry family members add some convenient and eco-friendly alternative options to your daily lives.

Smart Sheep 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.

ChomChom 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 plant-based, non-toxic, made from essential oils like lavender, and is a great alternative to chemical based cleaners for your kitchen, bathroom, flooring, and pet spaces. They even make a family-safe all-purpose bug spray that can be used on people, pets, homes and plants during the pesky bug season!

Earth Rated Poop Bags

If you have a dog that you take on walks throughout the neighborhood or park, you know that poop bags are essential items to have! These Earth Rated compostable poop bags are vegetable-based and can be disposed of in a municipal compost environment where pet waste is accepted. They offer a 100% leak-proof guarantee (a poop to hand encounter ruins any day!) and seal in the odor so you don’t have to cut any walk short! Use in a handy dispenser for added convenience. Earth Rated is also committed to giving back to rescues and shelters by donating poop bags and blankets.

Doggy Do Good Grooming Wipes

Dirty paws or messy face? These multi-purpose wipes are perfect for cleaning ears, face, teeth, paws, skin & coat. Made from pure bamboo and natural extracts these large wipes are thick, soft and safe to use for your pup daily or in between grooming sessions. These Doggy Do Good Pet Grooming Wipes are 100% biodegradable and compostable meaning less waste in the landfill. The company does even more good by donating part of their proceeds to a variety of animal rescues and no-kill shelters. 

Spruce Pup Climbing Rope Dog Leash

Those walks through the park just got even more eco-friendly. Our pals at Spruce Pup use recycled professional climbing rope to make their soft, cute and incredibly durable leashes. The Spruce Pup Climbing Rope Dog Leash is 5’ in length and features a swivel snap for easy clipping into your dog’s collar or harness.

Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Dog Toys

Playtime can go green, too! Grab your favorite EarthBites treats and stuff them into this Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Snoop Dispensing Tough Dog Chew Toy. Your dog will have endless fun trying to shake, pounce and nudge in order to get their tasty reward! Planet Dog toys are made in the USA from eco-friendly materials that are tough, non-toxic and free from BPA & Phthalates.

Rated by numerous magazines as the “world’s best dog ball” the Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Ball Tough Dog Chew Toy can also hold treats or serve just as a bouncy ball for fun! Available in 3 different sizes & colors, you can find the perfect eco-friendly (and looking!) play time option for your pup.

P.L.A.Y. Plush Toys

Ok…how cute is Bella the Butterfly ?! P.L.A.Y. is a company on a mission to help your pet be nicer to the planet this year, and their plush toys are a great place to start. They have toy bundles to help you get a good bang for your buck and all of their plush toys are made with PlanetFill® filler, which is made from 100% post-consumer certified safe recycled plastic bottles. Their toys are also machine washable and dryer friendly and feature double-stitched edges, making sure your pets favorite toys live on.

P.L.A.Y. Chill Pads

P.L.A.Y. pet chill pads are eco-friendly pet beds made with PlanetFill® filler, the same material that stuffs their pet beds we mentioned above! 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. Bonus…they are super soft, too!

Stasher Bags

How many ziplock baggies have you used and thrown away in your lifetime? 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 super cute colors and 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.

Ceramic Dog 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 dog bowl and stand is made of eco-friendly materials, high-quality ceramic and is lead-free to offer a safe eating experience for your pup. There are several non-plastic options if you prefer a slow or elevated feeding experience for your dog.

ORE Pet Can Cover

Do you like to mix in or top off your pup’s favorite Earthborn Holistic kibble with our K95 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 store and preserve the food for freshness until your pup’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 including your cat’s favorite Earthborn Holistic canned cat food!
