Four must-have pet products for the eco-chic pooch
With many of us starting to adopt a more eco-conscious approach in everything from our lifestyle choices to our pick of home interiors, it was only a matter of time before eco-savvy pet owners turned to more sustainable choices for their furry friends - a commitment we are more than on board with at Pooky & Boo! Whilst we still have a long way to go in Australia in raising our eco-friendly game, here are some of the brands putting style and sustainability together to help our pooches reduce their carbon pawprint!
Eco-friendly dog bandanas by Solo n’ Co
If you love one-of-a-kind pet accessories, you won’t be able to look past these handmade dog bandanas by Adelaide-based brand, Solo n’ Co. The statement accessories are the stylish venture of pup-loving creative Abby, who with an eye for organic products and a little inspiration from her rescue pup Solomon decided to launch her own design label for the eco-savvy pooch. In addition to their gorgeous range of handcrafted designs, Abby gives pup-owners the option to upcycle pre-loved clothing or fabrics into statement accessories for their furry friend. Just send off your item, and it will arrive back at your door in its brand new form as a bandana, bow tie or adorable stuffed toy for your pooch - the perfect way to share your wardrobe with your best pal!
Natural dog shampoo by The Australian Natural Soap Company
As we gain a growing appreciation for all things organic, it’s only natural that we’d want the same for our four-legged friends. Luckily for us, Melbourne-based brand The Australian Natural Soap Company is well on board with our ecological priorities. Their hand cut pet shampoo is made from ingredients sourced locally in Australia and is completely free from the normal nasties that accompany many shop-bought soap products. Whilst all their products are certified cruelty-free, their shampoo is also packed full of plant oils which act as a natural flea repellent and leave your pooch’s coat feeling smooth and silky (and smelling of lavender!). The perfect dose of TLC after a day exploring the great outdoors!
Ecobox Pet Box by Eco Box Australia
Finding the right pet products isn’t always the easiest feat for us eco-conscious pup owners, but Brisbane-based brand Eco Box Australia have come up with the perfect solution to make being environmentally-friendly a whole lot easier. Their Ecobox Pet Box features a range of eco-friendly pet products from local Australian makers, with items changing each month to keep us pet owners on our paws. Their past products include everything from vegan-friendly pet shampoos and natural dog colognes to eco-friendly (and downright adorable) chew toys made from recycled water bottles.
