Most pet beds use cheap or mass-produced materials that fall apart, especially once pet paws get all over them. Some even include unhealthy or dangerous chemicals in the foam and stuffing, which isn’t safe for us or our little ones.
But there are a growing number of brands that are bringing sustainability to pet furniture using responsibly sourced wood, upcycled cotton and fabrics, and nontoxic foams for a bed fit for a (furry) king and queen.
If we want to be more sustainable in our lives, that can apply to our fur babies too who deserve earth-friendly, nontoxic furniture. Check out our picks below!
And if you’re going green with your pet, check out our guides to sustainably made leashes, eco-friendly supplies, and natural pet foods.
