West Paw released a collection of safe, non-toxic pet toys and feeding accessories made with Seaflex, an exclusive blend of reclaimed and recycled ocean-bound plastic and zero-waste Zogoflex material.
As a result of its collaboration with Oceanworks, West Paw is able to responsibly source ocean-bound plastic from threatened coastal areas in Central America and make them into sustainable pet products.
The collection’s new toys, which are built for moderate chewers, include Drifty, which is shaped like a bone and suitable for fetch; Sailz, which is lightweight and designed for interactive play; and Snorkl, which is designed for interactive and bond forming tug play. The Seaflex collection’s feeding accessories, available in marine (blue) and sea fog (grey), includes its No-Slip Bowl and Doggie Placemat.
West Paw’s Seaflex toys, bowls and mats are one-hundred-percent recyclable through its Join the Loop infinite recycling program. The entire collection is safe and non-toxic, BPA-, latex- and phthalate-free, and FDA compliant.
“We are inspired to use the power of business to help solve environmental and social challenges,” said Spencer Williams, owner and CEO, West Paw. “By developing innovative materials like Seaflex, that can be turned into durable pet toys and household goods while helping stop plastic from reaching the ocean, we intend to be a part of the solution.”
