Our canine friends deserve the best of the best when it comes to their quality of life, and as conscious pup guardians, we do our diligence and make sure we're feeding them healthy food, providing them with the best vet care, and giving them more than enough TLC. But as with all things — from our workday coffee runs to our workout gear — it's important that we're keeping up with the times and also considering the impact that our purchases have on the planet. That's why choosing environmentally sustainable dog toys that are made from eco-friendly and non-toxic materials is super important! Not only are these products usually healthier for dogs, they're also so much better for the environment. And while tweaking our daily habits to be more eco-friendly here and there is great, we can also do our part by investing in more sustainable products every time we shop.
Thankfully, as companies become more aware of environmental issues, sustainable and pup-approved dog toys are becoming way more accessible. Here are a few eco-friendly choices that you can score for your furry BFF for under $20.
High Roller Plus Dog Ball
See that hole in the center of this roller? That's where you're supposed to insert a treat — which pretty much guarantees your dog's undivided attention. This durable roller is made in the USA out of post-process recycled materials. Extra bonus? It also floats, so you can use it as a water toy, too.
Duraplush BrewGear Dog Toy
Whether you're a beer, soda, or coffee person, this toy will speak to you — and more importantly, your dog will likely love it regardless of which design you opt for. These plushies are handcrafted in Portland, Oregon and filled with recycled material made from plastic bottles.
Sancho & Lola's Closet Plush Dog Toys With Squeaker
These cute (and squeaky!) crocodile-shaped toys are eco-friendly and made with natural hemp. Plus, the company notes that five percent of its proceeds go toward animal rescues, which is super sweet and gives you an extra reason to purchase.
