Beco Pets

Preserve The World They Love

Who They Are

What do bamboo chopsticks and your pet have in common? Well, not too much. However! When friends and supreme animal-lovers, George and Toby, realized how many chopsticks go to waste, they started to think about what could be made out of the excess product...Boom! Or Woof! Beco Pets came to life. Their first product was recycled bamboo pet bowls and from there the company has grown to include everything a loving pet-owner needs to help their fur-person walk lightly on the planet. Beco only uses top-notch, eco-friendly materials like cotton, bamboo, rice husk, food-grade silicone, and recycled plastic-water bottles!

Keeping the planet clean is important, but so is keeping your pet safe. Each toy, bowl, and accessory made by Beco is non-toxic, BPA-Free, and pet-approved!

Why We Like Them

Once upon a time, the only pet toys and accessories available were made from plastic and definitely weren’t built to last. Beco Pets offers the perfect solution to this wasteful, often single-use issue without sacrificing form or function! By choosing sustainable materials like recycled bamboo, recycled cotton, and recycled water bottles (among others!), they help eliminate reliance on petroleum-based plastics. You probably don’t want your pup gnawing on that stuff anyway – yuck!

In addition to making epic products, Beco is also part of the Sustainable Pet Coalition, a non-profit that aids businesses in their sustainability and social endeavors. Plus, Beco contributes to several animal-focused charity groups like “Dogs on the Street (DOTS), Yorkshire Poundies (HYPS), and  environmental non-profits such as the Marine Conservation Society and The Royal Parks.

Natural rubber is harvested by tapping the Havea tree and collecting the sap. Sustainably harvested rubber comes from forests that are carefully managed to avoid over-tapping, ensuring healthy rubber trees for the future. Some sustainable rubber tree management prohibits clear cutting to plant rubber plantations, and ensures the livelihoods of native peoples and local workers.

Cruelty Free is a certification process through PETA that labels products that are not tested on animals. All companies that are included on PETA’s cruelty-free list have signed a statement verifying that they don’t use ingredients or create finished products that help conduct or pay for any tests on animals.

Products that are labeled as BPA free do not contain Bisphenol A, a chemical commonly found in plastic products. Studies on BPA exposure have shown that high levels of BPA could lead to hormone disruption, effects on behavior and brain function, reproductive problems, breast cancer, heart disease, infertility, and more.

Plant Based Resins are used as an alternative to fully-synthetic plastics. Instead of using Petroleum as the main base ingredient to form plastic, some companies have started replacing a portion of the ingredients with plant and vegetable extracts. This lowers the amount of resources extracted to create purely synthetic products, and often provides a use for agricultural byproducts such as corn or flax. Some plant based resins are made from 100% plant materials, and can be composted in industrial facilities. EarthHero recommends checking with your local compost facility to determine which items are safe to compost.

Recycled cotton is created by salvaging post-industrial and post-consumer cotton scraps. The scraps are cleaned, sorted, stripped down, and separated into fibers before being respun into new yarn. This yarn can be utilized to make new textiles, while avoiding the energy and resources required to produce virgin fibers. Plus, it extends the valuable life cycle of the material instead of sending it to the landfill.

Recycled PET utilizes salvaged post-industrial PET scraps and post-consumer products such as water bottles and other plastic containers. These plastics are dried, crushed, and spun into yarn in order to create recycled PET fabric, or polyester. By providing a use for recycled plastics, companies encourage recycling programs worldwide, while adding new value to discarded items. Currently, over half of virgin PET production goes towards making textiles, so by utilizing recycled PET, post-consumer materials are both diverting waste while taking the place of raw materials. This helps to reduce the demand for the extraction of oil, as well as energy used to produce new synthetic fibers.

This high-yield crop grows quickly and usually doesn’t rely on harsh pesticides and fertilizers, making it a dependable renewable resource. The cannabis plant produces more fiber per acre than common textile crops like cotton and flax, and actually adds nutrients to the soil instead of depleting them! Hemp is strong, breathable, and moisture wicking, and it requires minimal dye during fabric production due to its high absorbency qualities.
