As pet parents, we’re always striving to find products that we can feel good about providing to our best pet companions. At Pet Releaf, we oversee the entire manufacturing process from seed to sale, from plant to pet to ensure that we operate in a sustainable manner every step of the way. From using agricultural resources efficiently, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, keeping our water sources clean, to improving our products and minimizing packaging material usage—we make the care for people, pets, and the environment our number one priority.
Along with holding our company to these standards, we also want to ensure that we are providing our pets with products that follow similar sustainability practices. We’re highlighting six of our favorite sustainable pet brands below, so you can bring more eco-friendly products to your pet’s household.
With millions of bike tubes thrown into landfills every single year, Cycle Dog made it their mission to raise awareness and create dog products to recycle these bicycle tubes. Since 2009, Cycle Dog has been able to recover hundreds of thousands of discarded inner tube rubber targeted for landfills. Now you don’t have to feel guilty about spoiling your pet with unlimited toys when you’re purchasing from Cycle Dog! Each toy, collar, leash, harness, and more is handmade right here in the USA. Shop everything from their Ecolast Rubber Toys to their Travel Buddy Bowls for your dog!

While dogs (and humans) have been eating insects for thousands of years, Jiminy’s is one of the first pet brands to add powdered cricket protein to their dog foods and treats!

Every time you purchase a bag of their treats, you’re saving 220 gallons of water. To break down just how much you’re saving by switching to cricket protein food and treats, try out Jiminy’s Eco Calculator! They offer Dog Food and Dog Treats all made with cricket protein for an animal protein alternative.
