Better Buddies Eco-friendly Bedding Helps Homeless Pets

The slogan for Better Buddies says it all. “Better Products. Better Shelters. Better Buddies.” This company’s mission begins with its products. Each bed cover is made from 100% organic certified cotton and hemp. These materials were chosen based on their unique capacity for both durability and softness, two components necessary for pet beds of all size animals. A durable bed is great, but if it’s not comfortable, who’s going to sleep on it?

Underneath each removable cover is a bed filled with PET fiber, made from recycled plastic bottles. The fiber is so fine; it’s actually more comfortable than the common filling for many pet beds. These eco-friendly choices are simple changes, and they were executed by Better Buddies to offer a new, healthier product for consumption. With a line of beautiful, eco-friendly products, the next goal was to connect it to helping animals in need.

Better Buddies linked up with Best Friends Animal Society, the nation’s largest no-kill animal sanctuary, to donate 10% of each bed sold directly to Friends’ Guardian Angel Program— helping the most severe-needs animals find homes. This component not only helps homeless animals on a monetary level, but also encourages awareness of spaying and neutering, animal-cruelty and adoption.

Better Buddies bedding is available online and at selected retail outlets. For more information, visit
