EcoBark was launched on Amazon in 2014 by Tristen Gratz, a single mom living in Clearwater, FL. While Tristen wanted to provide for her family, she didn't want to run a business that only cared about the bottom line -- she wanted her business to have a positive impact on the world around her too.
"I became enamored with the beauty in nature, so I set out to preserve those treasures...And I love animals, so I married both. It was breaking my heart, the contribution of pollution to my planet. I wanted to do something, I just didn't know what to do." -𝘛𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘯 𝘎𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘻, 𝘖𝘸𝘯𝘦𝘳 𝘌𝘤𝘰𝘉𝘢𝘳𝘬 (𝘴𝘩𝘰𝘸𝘯 𝘪𝘯 𝘪𝘮𝘢𝘨𝘦)
EcoBark turned Tristen's love of animals and Mother Nature into a successful, international business, selling products on other major retail sites like Wal-Mart, Chewy, Bonanza, and Wish.
From products to packaging, we strive to be the world's first pet supply company to measure success not just in sales, but in reducing our carbon footprint -- and pawprint! We incorporate sustainable and up-cycled materials, like used, plastic water bottles and all-natural hemp, into each of our thoughtfully designed products. Diverting plastic waste from ending up in landfills and the ocean is a simple step that makes a huge impact on the planet.
While EcoBark has global goals to strive for, we make sure to look out for our community as well by participating in beach cleanups and donating to local shelters. When you buy from EcoBark, you know your money is going to a company that strives to give back and be a good steward to the planet!
We work to bring more awareness to animal rights issues, and contribute to local shelters through donations and support. For every EcoBark harness/leash/collar that is purchased, another is donated to one of our local shelters.
