The 21st century has seen higher and higher pollution statistics in the U.S. than any previous era. Perhaps one of the fastest growing pollution problems that is directly related to human consumption is that of water bottle waste. EcoBark Pet has taken a stance on doing something about this problem by innovating eco-friendly dog accessories and pet products for our furry friends.
The hallmark of our dog accessories is that they are manufactured from recycled water bottles! That's right, recycled water bottles. The actual raw materials that go into our eco-friendly dog collars and harnesses are ninety-two percent recycled water bottles, which not only puts a dent in water bottle waste, but it actually puts a demand on obtaining these bottles and putting them to good use instead of wasting them!
EcoBark's Eco-Friendly Products
From our eco-friendly dog collars to our harnesses, leashes, and other dog supplies, everything we sell is ethically designed, meticulously constructed, and expertly fabricated using reclaimed and recycled water bottles. You can easily be eco-friendly, so why not let your pet join “EcoBark Nation” and be eco-friendly with dog supplies made from recycled materials? Now that’s an idea that EcoBark Pet can get behind!
Water Bottle Waste; America’s “Trashiest” Problem
Water bottle waste is skyrocketing in the U.S. as Americans seem to lose faith in the relative safety of drinking tap water. The statistics on this are absurd. The group, “Ban the Bottle” has put together some great information as pertains to this point, and it is data like the following that gets us here at EcoBark Pet motivated about going that extra mile and putting in the work needed to make eco-friendly puppy supplies:
“Americans used about 50 billion plastic water bottles last year. However, the U.S.’s recycling rate for plastic is only 23 percent, which means 38 billion water bottles – more than $1 billion worth of plastic – are wasted each year.”
(1)“The energy we waste using bottled water would be enough to power 190,000 homes.”
(2)“Making bottles to meet America’s demand for bottled water uses more than 17 million barrels of oil annually, enough to fuel 1.3 million cars for a year. And that’s not even including the oil used for transportation.”
(3) Eco Pet Products
After seeing statistics like that, eco pet products become a must. Providing eco pet products of all kinds, whether dog collars, puppy supplies, “organic" dog harnesses, natural dog collars, and other pet accessories is our mission at EcoBark Pet. We started out with our recycled and organic-feeling dog harnesses that are almost completely manufactured from recycled materials. We also have other pet accessories, dog collars, eco-friendly leashes, etc. Our natural dog collars and leashes are now a big hit, and did we mention all of our dog supplies can be found online:
