Eco-Friendly Pet Black Friday, Small Business Saturday + Cyber Monday Deals

Christina Ottaviano

Looking for deals on pet supplies to save you money this holiday season?  Look no further than my favorite companies!  I've outlined their offers here, all in one spot so it's easy to shop around from the comfort of your own home.

Eco-Bags Products, Inc. is offering 25% off your minimum order of $35 to qualify from 11/24/16-11/30/16 using code 2016ECOPET.  I love their net bags as a lightweight option to carry produce on hot summer days while visiting the farmer's market or walking dogs.  They can even be composted if the bags begin to wear out, as they are made from cotton and veggie dyes.

Esse Reusable Bags is offering a doorbuster sale starting Friday, 11/25/16 at 6AM with 60-50% off their entire site!  The company is closing out their inventory, so this will be the last chance to purchase their durable, high quality reusable bags at a fraction of the cost. Their tote bag is on my Christmas list but I am going to order one during this sale!

Chewy.com is offering discounted prices on their entire Vital Essentials line of food and treats, plus free shipping on purchases of $49+.  In some cases, the discount looks to be close to half price, as their rabbit treats are marked down from $12.99 to $6.99.  If you sign up for their auto-ship program, you can save an additional 20% off.  Vital Essentials is one of our favorite brands for freeze dried treats and shelf stable freeze dried raw pet food.  Though I make our own, in an emergency it's important to have a backup plan. Their Black Friday sale goes live at midnight!

Cats love boxes and Catty Stacks are so fun!

Walking dogs in the ice and snow during the winter in PA can be a freezing cold experience, but our friends at Thermacell have come up with a way to keep toes warm, with heat control settings through a phone app!  These rechargeable insoles give about 8.5 hours of warmth for about a 2 hour charge time.  They retail for $199.99, and there is a rebate available (contact me at ecofriendlypetreviews@gmail.com for a copy to be emailed to you).

Esse features a tote to organize your bags.

West Paw handcrafts high-quality, extra-durable dog + cat beds

Christina Ottaviano

We have several beds in every room.  When I bake, the dogs lounge in the kitchen.  When I am writing, they nap at my feet.  And when I am relaxing, one of our dogs will even drag a bed up the ramp and onto the couch (because the couch itself is not good enough for the princess Honey dog!).

Our Lucy loves a bed with sides.  She lounges, like the most interesting dog in the world on the bumpers.  I prefer that style for them as well, because they become therapeutic in the event of a neck or back issue.  When shopping for a pet bed there are many factors that are important.  If a person is green-minded, a bed made from recycled materials and manufactured in the USA is important.  Functionality is also a factor.  Can the bed be washed and dried in a washer and dryer?  Does the cover come off?  Is the fabric durable, yet soft and comfortable?

West Paw’s bed, the HeyDay is all of these things.  We own a soft sage version.  The Microsuede® fabric has a comfortable, velvet feel and is easy to clean.  The bed is generously filled and the bumpers around the edge are filled with material called Intelliloft® that is made from recycled plastic bottles. West Paw mentions that “using IntelliLoft® recycled material uses up to 8x less energy than it takes to manufacture the same material new and keeps plastic bottles out of landfills.”  It is very well made, extremely durable and richly attractive.  The zipper is high quality and heavy duty, and the stitching is upholstery quality.  This bed can go through claws, spills, mud and more without permanent damage.  Our testing with 4 dachshunds and 2 cats has concluded that the bed is fairly indestructible and resistant to odors.  It’s pretty much the bed that every dog and cat owner has been looking for.  We absolutely love it!

They're available in all sizes, shapes and colors on Amazon.com as well.

P.L.A.Y. has an eye for beautifully crafted, earth-friendly pet products

Christina Ottaviano

If you’re an avid green “lifestyler”, you likely pay close attention to the products you use and how they affect the environment, and the food you eat and the way it impacts your health.  You probably consciously reduce, reuse and recycle whenever possible.  And, if you have pets, you also have the same focus for them.  There is a wonderful selection of pet products on the market for those with a greener conscience.

Pet Lifestyle and You (P.L.A.Y.) started with an adorable pug named Momo and a commitment for a very high quality, safe product.  P.L.A.Y. partnered with a manufacturer that has been making products for infant children for over two decades.  Because the company is committed to preservation of the environment, Planet Fill™ polyfiber, made from recycled plastic bottles for P.L.A.Y. beds is used to fill their comfy beds.  They’ve minimized packaging, and what packaging they do use is certified safe by the Forest Stewardship Council.

My dachshunds, Molly, Honey, Ricky and Lucy tried out the Dog on a Wire pet bed, which P.L.A.Y. sent me to review.  This bed is the perfect combination of artistic design and realistic functionality.  The density of the stuffing is soft, cozy and comfortable.  It’s well constructed, and the fabric is strong, easy to clean and durable.  They absolutely loved it, snoozing peacefully and comfortably for hours!  And I was thrilled that they were happy on a bed that was manufactured with their health and well being in mind.

The 100% cotton cover is removable for easy washing.  The duvet covers are sold separately, allowing savvy owners to switch out covers seasonally, or when washing so that the bed is always available for use.  They also recommend owners who purchase the duvet covers can fill them with their own, old clothes.  How’s that for re-purposing?  It doesn’t get much greener than that. 

A full selection of P.L.A.Y. products, with photos and reviews is available on Amazon.com as well.

P.L.A.Y.  is on Facebook, and you can like them here to keep up with news and special offers.  Follow them on Twitter, too.  They also have a newsletter signup available here.
