The Shift to Online Shopping: Ethical and Sustainable Dog Toys

The pandemic has brought about a significant shift in the way we live our lives, including how we shop for our pets. As people have been spending more time at home with their furry companions, they have been turning to online pet shopping to meet their pets' needs. Gone to the Dogs is a social enterprise that creates thoughtfully designed and ethically sourced pet products, including a wide range of dog toys that meet their standards for quality and ethics.

When it comes to dog toys, we believe that playtime should be both fun and safe for pets. That's why we source ourtoys from trusted makers who use sustainable materials and safe, non-toxic dyes. Some of the materials used in their toys include organic cotton, recycled plastic bottles, and natural rubber. By choosing toys made from sustainable materials, pet owners can feel good about their purchase knowing that they are reducing their environmental impact.

Gone to the Dogs also places a high priority on supporting small businesses and makers from marginalized communities. Our partnerships with artisans help to provide opportunities for women and immigrant communities, as well as those in the Global South. This commitment to ethical sourcing extends to our dog toys as well, as many of their toys are handmade by skilled artisans using traditional techniques. This not only supports local economies but also ensures that each toy is unique and of the highest quality.

In addition to our commitment to sustainability and ethical sourcing, Gone to the Dogs offers a wide range of dog toys that cater to different play styles and preferences. For example, some dogs love to chew on things, and Gone to the Dogs offers a variety of chew toys made from durable and non-toxic materials. Other dogs enjoy fetching and retrieving, and we have a selection of dog toys designed specifically for this purpose. These provide mental stimulation and help to prevent boredom.

Gone to the Dogs also offers a variety of plush toys made from organic cotton and other sustainable materials. Our toys are perfect for snuggling and playing, and their soft textures make them comforting for dogs who like to cuddle. Many of our plush toys are also easy to wash, making them easy to clean and maintain.

As the demand for online pet shopping continues to grow, Gone to the Dogs is leading the way in providing pet owners with convenient and ethical options for their furry friends. By offering a wide range of dog toys made from sustainable and non-toxic materials, as well as supporting small businesses and marginalized communities, Gone to the Dogs is meeting the needs of pet owners who are looking for high-quality, socially responsible products for their pets.
