Eco News Network has a big surprise for readers everywhere. We will be giving away a holiday gift basket to one lucky fan in December! The basket will be filled with Fair Trade/eco-friendly items from companies we have featured throughout the last few months.
Last week we shared our second item (a Kimono Robe from Under the Canopy) and this week we’ve got another green goodie to excite not only you but your furry friends as well!
This week we are featuring two naturally nautical pet toys from Island Time Pets. The first is a Captain Dave’s Cat’s Paw cat toy. It is made with 100% natural organic cotton seine twine and is designed to hang from a doorknob or table so it can be batted about all day by your happy, mischievous cat. The second pet toy is a Captain Dave’s Bowline dog toy for your favorite pooch. It is a 100% cotton nautical rope dog toy and is named after the line that attached the bow of a boat to the buoy or slip. It’s made with a traditional nautical back splice on both ends of the toy. Each of the back splices are hand sewn in place (whipped) with waxed sail twine, creating a dog toy that resembles the shape of a rope hotdog. Both toys are handmade in the USA of USA-sourced materials.
Island Time Pets is the creation of Captain Dave, a captain who took his love of setting sails and combined it with his passion for animals. All of Captain Dave’s non-toxic, nautically inspired rope dog toys and cat toys are handmade in the USA using traditional nautical materials and hand splicing in the nautical tradition. He also makes nautical rope dog collars and rope dog leashes as well.
