Denton, an adoptable puppy in Santa Ana, California
If you’re new to Doggy Diaries, catch up here!
I scoured the internet to find products that are truly eco-friendly, non-toxic and good quality. Dog Time’s eco friendly dog supplies reviews was a very helpful resource. They’ve rated a variety of products in different categories, giving them ratings, explanations and price ranges. I was easily able to discern good quality products in my price range.
I compared the reviews and after browsing the company websites, started crossing items off my doggy shopping list. I was able to find most of what I want on Amazon and placed a bulk order. The only things I was unable to find on Amazon were the bamboo bowls (they had another brand, but I’m picky!), which I purchased online directly from the retailer.
Bamboo Food & Water Bowls by The Green Pet Shop: I can’t wait to test out these 100% biodegradeable and machine washable bowls made from the amazing renewable resources of bamboo and cooked rice husks!
Shampoo by Earthbath: Since pups tend to get smelly quite often, I know my husband will require frequent puppy baths. To ensure healthfulness for both the pup and us, non-toxic is very important. I’m confident this will be the perfect fit.
Organic Cotton Collar by Petz Best Dog: I was originally looking for a hemp collar since hemp is an earth friendly crop, durable and machine washable. Unfortunately, the price reflects that! I don’t want to spend a lot of money on the puppy collar since he’ll grow out of it so quickly. Maybe I’ll get the hemp collar once he’s fully grown. For now, this organic cotton one will be perfect.

Travel Water Bowl by Uxcell: I was not able to find an eco-friendly collapsible travel water bowl that fits with our lifestyle. I want one that is small enough to fit in my camelback for hiking and that’s practical. I found this one for a good price on Amazon, and while it’s not made with eco-friendly materials, I think it will work well for now and hopefully last through many trips!
