If you’re like us, you may have wondered, “What’s the big deal about an organic pet toy?” Well, when many studies like this demonstrate that many pet toys contain harmful banned toxins like phthalates and bisphenol A (BPA), organic pet toys are a very big deal.
A Pennsylvania toy company called Purrfect Play is showing us that non-toxic, organic pet toys are healthier, more fun and long-lasting than cheap mass produced Chinese junk. Founded by Pam Wheelock, Purrfect Play makes adorable, non-toxic toys from organic wool, hemp and cotton.
- Made in the USA
- Organic natural fibers: cotton, wool, hemp
- No synthetic or reprocessed plastics
- Dye and toxin free
- Sustainable and fair trade
We asked Pam why she started making these toys and she explained:
“I have a karmic debt of gratitude to the cats and dogs of this world. I would most probably not survived my childhood in one piece if not for my cat. He lived to be an old man and his love and comfort kept me going.
So… when I had my own home and a gaggle of kitties (all rescues) I wanted the best food and toys for them. I was unable to find them toys not made in China or made with safe organic materials– so I started making my own. Later on, I made them for friends and the circle widened as I started selling them.”
