Join the Loop - West Paw Design's closed loop recycling program... let your toys live forever

We invite you to Join the Loop® and participate in West Paw Design’s closed loop recycling program where we do the work for you!

Join the Loop® is West Paw Design’s closed loop recycling program meaning we collect certain products from our customers and recycle them back into new toys and apparel indefinitely.

By supporting companies that offer closed loop recycling, you are helping the industry transition further, which allows more and more eco-friendly channels to become available. So think green, shop green and help green grow!

West Paw Design's American made, high-quality products were made to give you years of good use before ever needing to return them for recycling, but we’re taking the steps today so when your pet is finished with their toys, and apparel, simply send them to us for recycling (instead of throwing them into a landfill).

What can be returned for recycling in the Join the Loop® program?
Currently West Paw Design is able to accept:

Any Zogoflex® toy.

Zogoflex® is West Paw Design's exclusive material that's made in the USA. Zogoflex® is West Paw Design's exclusive, recyclable material that's made in the USA and never needs to be thrown away.Super durable and extremely pliable, Zogoflex is tough, buoyant, non-toxic, and guaranteed to last! This incredible, high-tech material is used to make Jive®Būmi® , Huck, Hurley®, Tux®Zisc® and Tizzi®.

What happens when I return a toy?

We take old Zogoflex toys, clean them and recycle them back into new toys. If a returned toy can’t be recycled into one of our standard bright colors, we’ll turn it black...

Black Zogoflex Collection:

Our Black Zogoflex is a collection of near zero-waste-toys that includes Black Tux, Black Jive and Black Hurley. By regrinding previously unusable colors, Black Zogoflex allows us to decrease our Zogoflex scrap to a mere .4%, how green is that?

Don’t forget?

You never need to throw away (unless you're playing fetch) a Zogoflex® toy. If the toy is at the end of its life, please send it back to be recycled. We offer a one time replacement or refund guarantee. If you've already received your free replacement - you can continue to return more Zogoflex toys for recycling too!
