One of the best things about staying at home is getting more time with my therapist, my best friend, my cuddle partner – Pepper. Pepper has been such an important aspect of my wellness during this chaotic and stressful time. Although as I stare at her more and more this week, I couldn’t help but think, “She needs a new bandana. She would look so cute in a new bandana.”’
Let’s face it, dogs are cute, but dogs in fashion can be even cuter. I have compiled some photos of pups in eco-conscious outerwear, and I challenge you not to smirk at.
1. The only Jaws I’m willing to be near is this sweater-wearing cutie
Funny Fur Boutique is a Texas-based boutique dedicated to offering pet outfits from cute to couture. This cozy-looking number can make your pup the perfect Shark Week binging partner.
Paws-itive for the Earth Because: It’s hand-knit and made of 100% natural wool from free-range sheep and follows Fair Trade guidelines.
2. Simple, chic, and perfect for a more polar pup
Eco-Pup is all about creating basic pieces that are not only fashionable, but functional. A bandana is a great way to give your dog a little extra protection in harsh weather conditions, and also just makes them look effortlessly chic.
Paws-itive for the Earth Because: reuses and recycles packaging, is certified organic, and uses reclaimed, upcycled, natural and recycled fabrics. They even commit to biodegradable poop bags for their team’s pets.
3. A touch of red for a Rosie or Rover
Olive is focused on creating specific items for special needs. For example, for those “chilly dogs” that could use some extra warmth on those afternoons strolls.
Paws-itive for the Earth Because: This sweater is handmade with organic wool, all natural dyes and no harsh chemicals. All orders ship in low-impact packaging, from recycled boxes to biodegradable packing peanuts. Olive also seeks out partners and vendors who share these same goals and values (Zeeva.eco knows a little about that!)
4. For those frenchie fashionista fanatics
Frenchiestore is on a mission to make french bull dogs cuter and healthier at a minimal cost to the environment. This onesie with a booty design makes me want to drop everything and adopt a “frenchie” ASAp.
Paws-itive for the Earth Because: They have a zero plastic tolerance and all products are 100 percent organic
