Ruff Wear, the leading producer of high performance dog gear, offers a wide variety of eco-sensitive gifts and stocking stuffers for the holiday season. Finding a gift for our four-legged friends that is both practical and personal can be a challenge. Ruff Wear's new green line features recycled and renewable materials and they include everything our canine companions need for holiday fun. More information about the new eco-sensitive line can be found here: RuffWear.com.
Today, dogs are considered members of the family and owners are increasingly bestowing gifts upon their canine companions. The American Pet Products Association, or APPA, estimates that Americans will spend $43.4 billion on their four-legged companions this year alone with 54 percent of dog owners purchasing holiday gifts for their dogs. With the growth of the green movement, consumers are bringing the broader value of green living to society and the world around them. Ruff Wear's green dog gear line helps minimize the impact on the environment and provides new options for eco-sensitive gifts this holiday season.
Whether you're last minute holiday shopping or looking for budget-friendly gifts - dogs on the go will enjoy the benefits of an eco-sensitive bed, toy, or bowl. And Ruff Wear's new green line provides a wide variety of eco-sensitive gear, from the TurnUp interactive dog toy, made of natural rubber from sustainable rubber tree plantations, to the Trail Runner collapsible bowl featuring recycled fabric and webbing. These eco-sensitive products were recently re-designed to incorporate sustainable materials and are available now at specialty retailers and at http://www.ruffwear.com.
"At Ruff Wear we are constantly inspired to find ways to improve our 'green' efforts. Whether by using recycled materials in our products or sustainable and environmentally friendly practices in our workplace, Ruff Wear is committed to finding new ways to minimize our impact on the environment. Our new line of eco-friendly products comes just in time for green holiday gift-giving," said Patrick Kruse, Ruff Wear's founder.
