Plastic Free Products for Dogs

Plastic Free Products for Dogs

The UK is without a doubt a nation of animal lovers. According to the 2022 PDSA Animal Wellbeing Report, 27% of UK adults have a dog with an estimated population of 10.2 million pet dogs. Dogs give us a lot of love, affection and happiness. In return, we buy them countless squeaky toys, fashionable clothing and a plethora of other pet products. However, many of these products are often made of plastic or come in plastic packaging.

But how much of this plastic actually gets recycled? In 2021, the Greenpeace reported that “less than 10% of everyday plastic – the plastic packaging that the things we buy is wrapped in – actually gets recycled in the UK.” This poses a threat to the environment, wildlife and even people. In case you want to start reducing the use of plastic, why not start by choosing plastic-free pet products?

With 10.2 million pet dogs in the country, this small change could have a large impact. At Saffron Pawtique, we are your one-stop-shop for ethical and eco-friendly, including plastic-free dog supplies, from dog bowls and dog collars to dog leads and dog poo bags.
