Upcycling – I hate the word but love the concept. I’m always concerned with how much trash and waste I produce, so I get excited when things are recycled and reused rather than whisked off to landfills. Eco-friendly company Better Buddies (co-created by General Hospital star Julie Marie Berman) recycles old yoga mats and turns them into placemats for dogs and cats. The mats undergo a rigorous sanitation process (and if you’ve ever done a hot yoga class, you know that’s important) and cut into colorful dishwasher-safe and non-skid food mats. To that awesome idea, I say: Namaste. (Better Buddies also donates 10% of profits to the Best Friends Society’s Guardian Angel program, so they’re doing good two times over!)
Waggo is a modern dog accessories brand founded in 2011 by Brooklyn-based designer Regine Raab. Her background in fashion is apparent throughout, with bold colors and modern patterns found on everything from beds to leashes to food mats! I am absolutely in love with the “Spotty Dotty” pattern, which is available on a variety of different bed styles as well as ceramic bowls.
I was wandering through Target yesterday (you know, having gone in for, like, two things and instead filling up a whole basket with unnecessary but completely awesome finds) when I stumbled on the display for Polka Dog Bakery, part of Target’s new project The Shops at Target, which features items from specialty boutiques throughout the country. Polka Dog Bakery is a pet shop and bakery in Boston, and their “shop” at Target is full of cute, colorful toys, bowls, mats, collars and, of course, yummy and wholesome baked treats. The Polka Dog for Target collection is available both in stores and online, and if the already-half-empty shelves at my local store are any indication, it’s selling out fast. What’s your favorite? Pretty sure I need one of those bowls. And a coordinating mat. And a tossin’ stick.
Neroko is a Finnish design studio that was born out of “a great love for dogs and a passion for sustainable Finnish design”, which is to say that Neroko and Dog Milk are two peas in a pod. Their modern pet line includes solid birch beds and “habitats”, stackable ceramic bowls and birch food containers, and even natural jute dog toys! (And how cute is that little dog sculpture?)
