Molly Mutt Dog Duvet Covers

Molly Mutt Dog Duvet Covers

I just found Molly Mutt Dog Duvet Covers. What a simple, unique, creative and eco-friendly idea.

Re-use
Having two dogs I know how expensive dog beds are. And how easily they get dirty. And how quickly I have to wash them in order to get them back in position for Dewey and Frosty or our sleep number will turn into their heavenly oasis.

However, it doesn't have to be that way. Recover your existing dog bed with a new duvet cover. Or better yet, create a brand new dog bag by filling the duvet cover with old blankets, clothes and pillows; keeping all of those items out of the landfills. Genius!

Tapioca Waste Bags

Tapioca Waste Bags

In our first Bark Box we received a box of Doggie Waste Bags from Eco-Dog Planet. These waste bags are made from the tapicoa plant, which is a NON-GMO product and also a renewable resource. The bags are light weight, but also very strong and durable. The bag will actually decompose faster when exposed to micro-organisms in soil and landfills.

But do they work for such a stinky job?  I've been using these bags for our new foster puppy, who is a 10 month old, 40 pound, australian shepherd.  To say that his poop is hefty would be an understatment.  I was concerned at first because I thought the smell from the poop might get through to my hand or that the bags might leak.  Not a chance.
