Press Release
Jan 26, 2021
Dog and cat owners are increasingly seeking sustainable beds, toys, leashes, and other durable petcare products for their fur babies

Rockville (MD), January 26, 2021 —  When most consumers think about natural, eco-friendly, and ethically sourced products in the pet market, pet food is often the first category that comes to mind. However, many pet owners look for these same features in all the products they purchase for their pets, including durable pet products, according to market research firm Packaged Facts in the report Durable Dog and Cat Petcare Products, 3rd Edition.

“There are few industry trends bigger than sustainability,” says David Sprinkle, research director for Packaged Facts.  “Pet products marketed along eco-friendly and sustainability lines—whether via sourcing, manufacturing, or distribution—resonate with pet owners looking to leave a smaller carbon footprint.”

In the durable pet care market for dogs and cats, an industry with overall estimated sales of $5.7 billion in 2020, natural and eco-friendly products include:

  • dog and cat toys made from organic cotton or hemp, natural bark, or recycled wood or plastic
  • carriers, crates, kennels, housing, bowls, and litter boxes and litter box accessories made of recycled and/or recyclable plastic or biodegradable materials
  • dog and cat beds made from natural burlap, cotton or hemp and filled with beans, corn, millet hulls, wood pulp waste, or recycled fleece or plastic bottles
  • collars and leads made of hemp, soy, or sisal rope
  • apparel and fashion accessories featuring organic wool, cotton or hemp

Supporting the sustainability movement are pet owners and marketers who have long demonstrated keen interest in ecological matters, which are particularly top of mind among the younger generations of Millennials and Gen Z.
