Our Favorite Sustainable Pet Brands
In our previous blog, we talked about how to make sustainable choices regarding your pet’s food -- but there are so many other aspects of being a pet owner that can be sustainable. Below are a few non food-related pet brands that we love and encourage you to support!
Angela Medlin, the founder of House Dogge, is passionate about sustainability. All of her products are made with natural and sustainable materials that are nontoxic and easy to care for. Learn more about their sustainability efforts here.

Whom, a zero-waste furniture company, practices sustainability largely in the materials they use. For example, decor pieces are made with polystyrene pulled from the ocean. Additionally, for every tree harvested to make furniture at Whom, they plant 40! To date, Whom has recycled 31 million pounds of materials. Learn more about Whom’s sustainability efforts here.
Our favorite Whom product: Kansas pet bed
Cycle Dog repurposes materials to create durable products, which range from collars to Portland Pet Food Company-branded toys.
