Sustainability Features of ecoDaisy Dog Beds

Recycle leaf and paw

Developed as a solution to the disposable nature of most dog beds on the market, the ecoDaisy orthopedic dog mattress is a luxurious eco-friendly dog bed that provides the support and durability of a pillow-top mattress….support that will actually last!  100% upcycled.

 

 

Pawsitive Features

  • Made from thick luxurious brand-new pillow-top mattress foam from major mattress manufacturers
  • Washable, water-resistant cover made with 100% upcycled high-performance outdoor sports fabrics. Additional covers can be purchased extending the life of the mattress.
  • Built to last – these beds will pay for themselves as they will not compress over time
  • Re-made by hand on Vancouver Island, BC
  • ecoDaisy employs sustainable business practices (recycled content packaging, green web-hosting, recycled paper for all print, local suppliers, fuel-efficient transportation)

 

Due to the recycled nature of the mattresses, some of them may have slight scuffing, discolouration or minor defects (this is the inside foam portion which is covered). Despite possible minor wear and tear, each pillow-top mattress is brand new, some with the tags still on.

Also, with regard to sizing…each mattress is unique, thus each dog bed is unique, so thickness, firmness and sizes may vary slightly (variations are generally less than an inch).

These factors are all part of the sustainability features which comes with some trade-offs when compared to most products on the market which are mass-produced in a factory in China from raw materials (generally petroleum based).

 

Because each mattress and cover is made by hand right here on Vancouver Island….custom sizes are available upon request (additional fees apply).

Upcycled fabrics are mostly sourced from the Vancouver area but some fabrics are sourced from Portland. Here’s a picture of one of the warehouses where some of the 100% post-commercial recycled fabric is sourced from….

And finally, in case you were wondering, this is the awesome local Vancouver-Island business that does a fabulous job sewing the mattress covers…
