Moderncat's Top Five Eco-Friendly Finds

I’m here to tell you that just because you own a cat and you want to be eco-friendly, it doesn’t mean you have to give up your sense of style. Here are my top five eco-friendly picks for living stylishly with cats:

1. Eco Nap Mat from West Paw Design

This pet bed is not only stylish, but it’s very earth-friendly. 85% of the fabric is from recycled plastic water bottles, but you’d never know it because it is incredibly soft! Available in several sizes, machine washable and made in the USA.

2. Scratcher Lounge from DKcat

This generously sized cat scratcher and lounge from DKcat is handmade with reclaimed wood and eco-friendly and materials. The craftsmanship is exquisite and the tan and grey carpet tile would look great in a modern interior.

3. Pulp Scratch Lounger from Bergan

This unique scratcher/lounger is made from paper pulp, like the kind of material egg crates are made of. The contoured shape and textured surface make it perfect for napping and scratching. Made from 100% recycled materials with no harmful glues or chemicals, and completely recyclable once kitty has had her way with it, this is one of the greenest cat products on the market.

4. Eco-chic Bambu Lounger from Pet Lounge Studios

The Bambu Lounger from Pet Lounge Studios is the perfect bed for eco-conscious moderncats. The frame of this bed is made of solid bamboo, making it extremely sturdy but also lightweight and very sustainable. The cushion, made from the highest quality memory foam, helps to relieve pressure points, which can be a huge benefit for older or arthritic cats.

5. Baobab Climbing Tree From Square Cat Habitat

This sleek climbing tower from Square Cat Habitat provides four branches for climbing and playing and a treetop for napping and observing. The Baobab is made from the finest eco-friendly materials. Choose from either 100% renewable bamboo plywood or, for a less expensive option, choose black or white low-pressure laminate over Arreis® Sustainable Design Fiberboard, made from 100% recycled wood fiber and formaldehyde-free adhesive. Great for the environment and healthy for your cat!

My personal mission is to bring you a daily dose of "creature culture" with the goal to inspire, connect, educate and entertain.
