Sustainability

We are dedicated to being as eco-friendly as possible. We wouldn't classify ourselves as "zero-waste" because there are just somethings we can't reuse/repurpose (like tiny thread scraps!), and we prefer the term "eco-friendly." We are focused on sourcing materials that are ethically made and good for the planet.  For more detailed information than what you can find below feel free to email us your questions at info@shopcamphound.com

Fabric

Almost all of our products are made with 100% cotton fabric
Patterns are printed on the fabric using water-based dyes that use very little water. It's like a giant printer that permanently dyes the fabric!
Products that are noted as not being 100% cotton are deadstock fabric. What's deadstock fabric? It's fabric leftover from large company's production runs. Instead of sending it to a landfill, they sell it to warehouses who then sell it to us in much smaller quantities!

Our logo tags are woven from recycled yarn

Hardware
Plastic buckles: in our experience plastic buckles hold up much better than metal ones, meaning you'll have to replace them much less often. Our plastic buckles are lightweight, heavy-duty, easy to clean, and anti-freeze down to -20°
Other metal hardware: all of the other hardware you see on our products are made from steel and are nickel-free. We love them because the steel can be melted down and reused again and again.

Webbing
100% recycled polyester webbing


Waterproof Series
Our waterproof webbing is a PVC-coated nylon webbing. Normally we'd be a little wary at the thought of using so many plastic based materials in our products, but this webbing is the exception for us. Why? It's built to last the lifetime of your pet, meaning we're reducing (remember reduce, reuse, recycle!) the number of products being created

 

Packaging

    Our packaging is 100% home compostable & curbside recyclable. Here is a list of everything we may use to package your order:

      • Mailers - made from paper & break down in about 3 months. 
      • Boxes - made from cardboard & typically break down in about 3 months.
