Organic 

Latex

We collect organic latex offcuts from bedding manufacturers around NZ & use them in our pet beds. Latex is a natural rubber derived from the rubber tree. The latex we source is made with pure milk from organic rubber plantations. 
Latex is produced from a carefully managed and renewable organic resource. In fact, as the demand for natural rubber has increased, so has the reforestation of rubber plantations.

  


Recycled PET Stuffing
Our toys & outdoor beds are stuffed with 100% Recycled Polyester fibre, made from single use plastic bottles. 
The great thing about recycled polyester is that it takes significantly less energy to produce than virgin polyester, and it ensures no new fossil fuels are extracted to make it. We are using what is already available. We recommend that your recycled polyester products are washed inside a microplastic catcher such as a Guppy Bag. 

 

New Zealand

Waste Wool

We use pre-consumer waste wool from local farmers to fill our dog beds. Wool comes from the replenishing fleece of sheep, making it a natural, renewable resource. Given that sheep grow a new fleece of wool each year, it is renewable & humanely collected.

Recycled 

ZIPS

We use quality, heavy duty YKK natulon zippers, which are recycled & bluesign approved in our dog beds.

NATULON® zippers are a resource-conserving, recycling-oriented product made from PET bottles, old fiber and other polyester remnants.

 

 

Recycled Labels
Our happy-scrappie brand labels are made in an Italian Fabric Mill, where they recover & recycle the yarn waste from their textiles production to create new fabric labels.

 

 
PACKAGING

We have decided to eschew the inessential & take a minimalist approach to packaging, given that is estimated to be between 10-14% of the waste going to landfills. Using a combination of pre-loved, recycled & compostable options for our products. 

Our beds & larger items are boxed in preloved cartons, wrapped in certified home compostable (AS 5810) waterproof plastic & recycled kraft paper.

Our smaller items are wrapped in recycled kraft paper & couriered in 100% recycled bags, made entirely from post-consumer material.
