West Paw Design

What makes West Paw Design an ecofriendly company?
Two of the ways that the company hasn't changed since it was founded in 1996 was using organic catnip and banana boxes. What do these two things have in common? Well, West Paw Design still uses USDA certified catnip in its cat toys and the company stores finished goods in reusable banana boxes (keeping them out of the landfill and eliminating the need to buy plastic totes). West Paw Design also strives to use eco friendly materials whenever possible. A lot of the materials they use for their products are recycled. By relying on these environmentally friendly materials, they keep wastes out of landfills, chemicals out of soil and water, and toxins out of toys. Also, when products last longer, people replace them less- which is eco friendly as well.
