4 Pet Accessories Made from Recycled Materials

When it comes to being environmentally friendly, you can now get your pets on board too. There are so many recycled materials that can be turned into some awesome pet accessories your pet will love. Here are four of the most popular pet accessories made from recycled materials as of right now.

4 Pet Accessories Made from Recycled Materials

Cat Scratchers

If you’ve ever watched your cat play with an empty box or toilet paper roll, you know that they just can’t seem to get enough of that cardboard material.

Now, you can make sure your cat has fun for months with cardboard cat scratchers.

These are made fully from recycled cardboard boxes and provide a unique form of fun for your pet.

Most even come with a removable insert that allows you to flip over the interior to create a just-like-new center for your cat to play with.

This way, your cat can get double the use out of their scratcher.

Dog Collars

Recycled clothing is something that we’re all fairly used to seeing.

But, did you know that you can buy recycled collars for your furry friend?

These are made from all types of materials, such as a fire hose dog collar that is made from old fire hoses.

There’s no limitation to what materials are available to reuse for your pet.

You may just be surprised at how stylish some of these collars can be.

Rope Toys

There are countless different types of rope toys out there for you to choose from.

Whether you want a rope toy in the shape of an animal or a ball, you can get one made from recycled materials.

The main material used in creating these rope toys is the cotton thread that is recycled from clothing.

These rope toys can provide hours of fun for your pet.


Balls come in all different sizes and colors.

You can find recycled balls at many pet stores which sport the material rubber.

Old rubber is simply melted down and reshaped into a ball shape for your pet.

Whether you’re looking for a soccer ball-sized toy for your large dog to play with or a little rubber ball for your cat to bat around, you’ll be able to find some made from recycled rubber.

Being environmentally-friend is about making a clear decision to lessen your carbon footprint in the world.

While you may have many habits of your own that help to decrease your carbon consumption, you don’t have to stop there.

The above four pet accessories are great ways to support an eco-friendly movement while making your pet super happy.
