Our Commitment to the Environment

West Paw Design's Sustainable Manufacturing.

At West Paw Design we believe in providing the best for your pet while balancing what is right for our environment. We search high and low for the best, most sustainable material there is to offer - we use recyclable and organic material in our bedding and toys.

Our commitment to the environment has guided us to continually strive to reduce our already minimized waste in our manufacturing process, and offer more environmentally friendly organic and sustainable products. We are able to provide quality hand-made toys and beds while keeping them durable and sophisticated. Using recyclable material in our Zogoflex® line lets us recycle old products back into new ones, without sacrificing any quality.

Recycled material is used throughout all of our beds and toys. We use premium 100% recycled IntelliLoft® long-staple fill in all our stuffed beds. Made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, IntelliLoft is friendly to the environment without sacrificing our high quality standards. Our exclusive IntelliLoft® fiber fill diverts over 200 tons of plastic bottles from landfills every year! Not only do we use recycled plastic bottles in our fill, we also offer stylish, durable Eco Friendly fabric that is made from re-engineered IntelliLoft® fibers in our Eco Nap® and Eco Toys. The fabric itself is made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles – who knew plastic bottles could be so soft?! (Trust us, they are!)

Organic products and services have become a large trend in today’s market – and West Paw Design is in the forefront for bringing organic cotton bedding and organic catnip to our four-legged friends. We offer pillow beds made from cotton that has been grown free from pesticides and chemical fertilizers and all of our cat toys feature U.S. grown organic catnip – offering a healthy alternative for your best friend and the environment.

 

Here at West Paw Design we do all we can to reduce waste in our products and in our manufacturing methods. We make sure to cut as much raw product as possible out of every bolt of fabric, then reusing the scrap material where we can. We rescue and reuse old boxes to store our finished products, and employ recycled material in our packaging.

 

When it comes to your pet and the environment we like to keep them both happy! Try our sustainable products and see what making a difference can do!
