Every day in the UK, a staggering 16 million plastic bottles are dumped in landfill, or strewn across the land and sea, littering our countryside, roadsides and oceans. It’s got so bad, the Government is even considering introducing a new deposit return scheme to tackle the plastic bottles ‘epidemic’. Here at Beco Pets, we like to do our bit to alleviate this crisis by recycling plastic bottles – and turning them into pet products!
￼We sell our Beco Donut and Mattress Beds in 43 countries around the world, providing a luxurious and extra-comfy night’s sleep to millions of dogs. But many pooches probably aren’t aware, as they snooze, enjoying their sweet doggy dreams, that each of our Beco Beds contains up to 90 recycled plastic soda bottles. This springy, soft filler provides additional insulation, further support and added comfort for achy joints and a relaxing night’s sleep.
Our popular soft toy ranges for cats and dogs are equally eco-friendly when it comes to putting discarded plastic bottles to good use. At Beco Pets, we strive to create products that are better for the environment and therefore all the animals that rely on a healthy planet. Each fun character is stuffed with fibres made from recycled plastic bottles, which makes them extra-soft as well as eco-friendly. Whether your dog enjoys a toy to wrestle with or cuddle up to, our Beco Family of plush toys offers the best of both worlds. And the extra bonus is we’re turning discarded plastic into products that make our pets happy.
