As pet guardians, we want to provide our furry friends with the best products possible. But did you know that pet products can also have a significant impact on the environment?
The pet industry, similar to the fashion industry, generates a significant amount of waste, from excessive packaging to cheaply designed product with a short lifespan. In this blog post, we'll explore the importance of recycled materials in pet products and how we can make a difference for our pets and the planet.
Reducing Waste in the Pet Industry
From raw materials to distribution, Canine Friendly works hard to limit wastage. By sublimating our webbing are able to print on demand ensuring that excess materials are not produced. During the production of our metal hardware the excess metal can be remelted and used limiting the amount of wastage. We have chosen to use minimal packaging that is all 100% recycled content and fits easily with curbside recycling programs. We also do all our shipping through the postal system. This reduces our carbon impact as postal trucks are already doing residential deliveries for your mail.
Sustainable Pet Products
By choosing products made from recycled materials, you're supporting sustainable manufacturing practices and helping to reduce waste. Additionally, recycled materials are often just as durable and long-lasting as new materials, making them a great choice for pet products.
Our performance webbing is woven from REPREVE® recycled post-consumer plastic waste. Every collar and leash is third party certified and can be reliably traced to where it came from. REPREVE® is the leading, most trusted brand of recycled performance fiber. Using recycled instead of virgin polyester produces fewer carbon emissions. And giving plastic bottles a second life keeps them out of oceans and landfills and helps to conserve natural resources.

The use of recycled materials in pet products is crucial for reducing waste in the pet industry and creating a better future for both our pets and the planet. By choosing sustainable pet products, we can make a positive impact on the environment and provide our furry friends with the best products possible.
