Green Gifts for Pet Lovers
We’ve got gifts for every budget, and they are listed in increasing order by price. The most affordable gifts come first, followed by the higher-priced offerings. This list will be updated as I find more unique, thoughtful gifts. Some gifts appear in more than one category.
Does the pet lover on your list love to play fetch with their favorite pooch? These Love Eco Tennis Balls are specially crafted for pet friendly fun. Each ball is made from 100% natural rubber and covered in extra duty felt made with 100% azo-free earth friendly dyes so it’s safe for even the toughest chewers. The balls are available in blue, green and red. The bucket is made from sturdy recycled steel and is sold separately. (aff)
Reusable shopping bags are always a good gift. And thanks to Envirosax, the pet lover on your list will be able to display that love while at the grocery store or mall. The bags feature a variety of animals, including cats, dogs, butterflies, bees, pandas and birds. They are available individually or in a set of 4 coordinating bags. (aff)
Cats love to climb and play, especially inside boxes. The ingenious folks at Catty Stacks devised a system of stackable cubes made of recycled, recyclable cardboard, which can be configured in the design and colors of your choice. After all, who wants a cat toy that looks like a cat toy in the middle of their living room? These could easily pass for modern art.(aff)
When pets are eating, the last thing they care about is cleanliness. You may not be able to make Fido or Fluffy keep his food in the bowl, but you can make cleanup a little easier. Any pet lover will appreciate these recycled rubber pet placemats, designed to help keep their feeding area as tidy as possible.(aff)
There are lots of artists who do pet portraits. A quick search of Etsy will tell you that. But Pop Dog Designs is different. They create pop art style pet portraits with patterns, textures, illustrations and icons built right into the image, as shown in the detail above. A wide range of sizes is available, so you can pay whatever you like.
Any pet lover knows how much of a hassle it is to wash a pet bed. They’re big, bulky and a pain to deal with. Solve that problem by gifting a Molly Mutt pet duvet, which is a pet-friendly, heavy cotton canvas cover than can be filled with anything they have laying around — old clothing, pillows, or even their current pet bed. Stuff sack sold separately. (aff)
