10 ranges of eco-responsible products for the dogs we love

At Animaluxe, we celebrate our Earth 365 days a year. In fact, the environment is at the heart of our personal and corporate values . Thus, we work hard daily to minimize our impacts and do our part to help our planet.

First of all, we prioritize suppliers and ecological products . It is super important to us to offer our community a good variety of eco-friendly products and we will continue to add more in the years to come.

Here are 10 ranges of eco-responsible products for dogs that we LOVE

1. West Paw SeaFlex: West Paw SeaFlex toys are made with endlessly recyclable materials and recycled water bottles from our oceans. Plus, they're full of fun, they float, and they're super tough. This is definitely the PERFECT eco-friendly toy for the summer!

2. Open Farm: Feeding your dog while being eco-responsible is possible thanks to Open Farm! All Open Farm products are made with premium ingredients that are sustainably sourced, ethically sourced and have minimal impact on the environment.

In addition, in 2021, Open Farm has committed to reducing their carbon footprint by 42% by 2030. To achieve this, they are taking concrete actions to optimize their supply, delivery and transport activities. They also offset their emissions by donating to verified carbon offset programs like the Darkwoods Forest Conservation Project and others.

Finally, did you know that 95% of pet food bags are not recyclable? This is not the case for Open Farm bags! The company has partnered with TerraCycle to offer a recycling program by mail or directly at partner stores. We therefore invite you to bring your Open Farm bag back to Animaluxe on your next visit to make sure it is recycled!

3. Earth Rated : I don't know about you, but here, we spend a lot of poop bags! That's why we LOVE COMPOSTABLE Earth Rated bags. They are made from corn starch and are certified by the BPI and by OK composte, which means that you can put them directly in the brown bin without asking any questions 😍 (ppst. you have to check with your municipality to make sure they accept the excrement in the compost)

And for those who were wondering, yes the bags are thick so there is no risk of leakage!

Warning: It is important to choose your compostable bags carefully, some companies do not have the necessary certifications which could cause your đŸ’© to still be picked up in the trash 😱

4. Eco-friendly Nina Ottosson toys : We can finally combine mental stimulation and environmental awareness! And yes, we even have environmentally conscious interactive toys! We have two models of Nina Ottosson puzzles made of a composite made of recycled plastic and wood, an eco-responsible and durable material.

5. Loona products : Another favorite, Loona products. Whether it's the odor eliminator, disinfectant, floor solution or any other product, they are all FREE of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), they are biodegradable in 28 days and they are Ecologo certified. This means that the products have been tested and approved to have minimal impact on the environment.

6. Attitude: The Quebec company Attitude, which is based in Sherbrooke (like us hehe!) is constantly innovating to create high quality products that are also good for our planet (all products are Ecologo certified). All their bottles are made of easy-to-recycle plastic and the company also offers a wide variety of eco-refills to reduce plastic and reuse your bottles. We invite you to discover the range of attitude dog products right here.

7. Animasoin Bio: We love Animasoin Bio products for a thousand and one reasons. They smell good, they are Quebecois, they are effective, they are natural and, above all, they are ecological. Indeed, they come from raw materials that are certified organic, biodegradable and approved by the Ecocert organization on an international scale.

In addition, Animasoin Bio also has a Zero Waste program allowing you to return your empty and clean shampoo bottles so that they can be reused.

8. BRB Pets: BRB Pets aims to create unique and useful products for dog owners while being environmentally conscious. I tell them: Mission accomplished!

First, in addition to being SUPER practical when you're outdoors, the HydroSmart Pro is made of 100% biodegradable and compostable materials. In addition, it attaches directly to the reusable water bottles that we already have at home, the dream!

Then, the HydroPet towel is also super practical. It is SUPER absorbent, it is compact and it is made of 100% recycled materials, the dream x2!

9. Spunky Pup: Spunky Pup 's Clean Earth plushies are made of 100% recycled and recyclable materials. Sure enough, the fabric, padding, binding, and threads are made from plastic water bottles. Each toy is equivalent to approximately 9 plastic water bottles! It's not nothing :)

Plus, the stuffed animals are REALLY cute and tough enough!

10. Bulk treats: Finally, we have a very wide variety of bulk treats from different companies (Hero, Puppy Love, Open Range, KC, etc.) with minimal packaging. This allows, among other things, to reduce waste, but also to reduce waste.

In addition, the vast majority of chew treats for dogs are made using leftover products intended for human consumption (eg chicken feet). Thus, once again, wastage is avoided.

That's not all! When you order from Animaluxe, your package will be packed in cardboard and recycled and recyclable paper, if plastic is necessary (eg glass jars), it will also be made of recycled and recyclable materials. In addition, we prioritize electronic communications, so you will only receive your bill by email!

Finally, in the warehouse, as in the store, we use Loona products to clean the various surfaces. We also pay to have access to a container that allows us to recycle as many materials as possible.

We are aware that we are not (yet) perfect, but we are committed to working hard to further develop our range of ecological products, our bulk section and our eco-responsible working methods.

Together we can make a difference đŸŸ
