Greener Gifts for Dogs This Holiday
From eco-friendly accessories to plant-based treats to a renewable-wood turntable toy, there are plenty of sustainable holiday gifting options for dog lovers this year.
Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)
Pet care may not be the first area that comes to mind when thinking about how to live a more eco-friendly life, but it does have its issues (think: meat-centric diets and plastic toys). Thankfully, many brands have answered the ecological call and begun to offer alternatives. Changes such as these can make a real difference, helping to lower our overall carbon, ahem, paw print. It further represents a budding cultural shift — now more than ever, people want to leave the planet healthier than they inherited it and consumers are actively seeking out brands that reassure them they’re on the same page! So, whether you’re an eco-conscious gift giver or buying for someone dedicated to a sustainable lifestyle, you’re sure to find the perfect present below.
Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)
