Tough Recycled Ball for Pet Playtime

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

A tough ball that withstands chewing is a great toy for your pet. These ones float as well as bounce making them fun for water-loving dogs and owners too. They are made from a tough non-toxic material, that is in itself reclaimed from the manufacture of other Planet Dog products, reducing their wastage and making it a good eco-friendly choice. These balls are very durable but they are recyclable at the end of their lifespan, so that is one less thing for the landfill. Their motto ‘reduce, reuse, rewoof’ just about sums it up! In the mean time you can have lots of great playtime with your dog.

Costs $9.80 from Only Natural Pet Store

Your Cat’s Never Seen a Gym Like This!

Friday, April 17th, 2015

This exclusive, 100% recycled resin cat activity center is worthy of some conversation. The Paw-rific JR Kitty Gympretty much has it all: 3 scratching posts, space for hanging toys as well as a generous paw-shaped platform that’s ideal for heftier (or just plain lazy) felines.It may seem a bit pricey to some (about $152), but the folks at CatsPlay.com promise it as a quality keeper.

Dogs are Crazy for Pentapulls

Sunday, August 10th, 2014


Just when you thought you’ve seen it all….The Pentapulls dog toy is an eco friendly nylon animal squeak toy that, according to the manufacturer, has had excellent success in entertaining even the pickiest of canines.
Crafted of earth-conscious (and quadruple-layered) nylon, this interactive pet toy’s 2 ½ feet length spans even wider than many chihuahuas. A total of 5 internal squeakers is something that all breeds can appreciate, but this unique x-shaped toy is probably best for larger dogs. Available in six animals, $17.99 at The Recycled Retriever

Orbee-Tuff® RecycleBONE

Saturday, December 21st, 2013


Planet Dog makes this recycled chewbone from materials left over from manufacturing other products. It is non-toxic, and you can recycle the scraps when your dog is done with it. Unfortunately, it is only rated for “average” aggressive chewers. If your dog is part piranha, like mine are, you may want to look for something sturdier.  Available from Eco Pet for $9.95.

Organic Catnip Mice

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Sometimes the simplest toys are best for cats. Organic catnip mice in attractive recycled fabric with a tempting string tail can keep your kitty entertained for hours, as she bites, kicks, grabs and tosses it around.

The perfect gift for an eco-friendly cat lover, these mice are hand-made in the US from recycled fabric. They are six inches long so big enough for a cat to really get to grips with. They are not that cheap if you are buying for several pets, but if you are happy to pay for chemical free organic catnip and handmade style, then well worth it.

Mice cost $5.99 from Only Natural Pet Store

Thursday, October 1st, 2009


This owl-shaped plush dog toy is super-cute. It’s made of low-impact hemp with chemical-free fillers and dyes, too. I guess that makes it okay that my dogs will probably devour it-at least they won’t be ingesting harmful toxins.  Available from Amazon for $7.64.
