Introducing Black Hurley - Good to the Bone

Posted February 07, 2013

We've crossed over to the dark side. But for a good reason! Our new black Hurley, black Tux, and black Jive help us recycle an additional 120 pounds of Zogoflex every week. The black magic happens when we combine multi-colored materials, that we were previously unable to recycle into one of our standard bright colors, and add a touch of black!  Voilà - a near zero waste dog toy is born!

Here's how we make black Zogoflex dog toys (below)


Step 1 Grind:

We grind scraps of Zogoflex material from old colors, returns or excess material that comes from our injection molding machine during the molding process.

Step 1 - we grind up used, returned, rejected, and old Hurleys Arrow - time to got to next step

Step 2 - Mix it up!!

Step 2 Combine:

Since 2006, we have used the same color of regrind material to make our standard colors. THE CHALLENGE: When we had discontinued or excess colored toys, we were unable to use it. But now we can mix it up!

Step 3 Re-Use:

With the introduction of Black Zogoflex, we just add a little black to any color.  This allows us to utilize even more of our recycled Zogoflex material than ever before.  We now use up to 120 pounds per week of previously unusable materials.

Add a little Black and then we make New Black Hurley, Tux, and Jive dog toys!!

Black Zogoflex is still a guaranteed tough dog toy, it's just a touch greener! 100% recyclable, floatable, made in the USA, BPA and phthalate-free, non-toxic and dishwasher safe. Toss it, float it, chew it, love it! Made in the USA.
