1// For our Mother Earth
Stylish Hound is committed to caring for the earth that us humans and hounds love so much. We’re always making improvements to reduce our environmental impacts and increase our kindness. How we’re doing better…
• Why we are choosing certified sustainable materials
- We believe as a brand and team the importance of environmental preservation, conservation of resources, personal health and wellbeing.
- This is an important personal choice that has manifested into our business / brand to promote community engagement and awareness
- Ensure customers have a choice or a product that help them towards their sustainability goals
- This is the first dog product and harness made from from recycled plastic and prior to our brand, there are no options for consumers.
We want to ensure we provide that option
