The Eco-Chic Dog Range Made From Recycled Plastic Bottles
When we heard about a dog brand who were making sustainable dog beds and accessories from recycled plastic bottles and used clothes, we just had to get on board.
The amazing UK brand, Project Blu, use a whole host of environment-polluting materials that were destined to end up in landfill or in the ocean and converts them into 100% recycled fabrics and fillings to create dog beds, mattresses toys, collars and leads.
Less than 5% of plastic which is dumped into the ocean reaches the surface or washes up. The majority sinks and breaks down into micro-plastic and then is ingested by marine life, this also means these polluting toxins are now ending up in the human food chain! Over 80% of all ocean plastic is from the world’s poorest nations, so for each sale, Project Blu make a donation to The Plastic Bank who build recycling infrastructure in the world’s poorest regions.
Project Blu’s dog beds and toys can withstand heavy use, scratching and chewing. The beauty of recycled plastic fabric is that it can repel water and is incredibly tough. Each bed is made from upholstery-grade fabric which exceeds the internationally recognised ‘rub test’ of over 50,000 cycles!
Being made from recycled materials doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style or functionality though. Project’s Blu’s products are designed to last, helping combat the throw-away culture we live in today. Their dog products are soft, durable, hard-wearing and machine washable. Their designs are a masterpiece in itself, their different ranges feature muted tones and pairing of shades such as sand, cool blues and pale greys - a little nod to the ocean!
