Fur Foam was our version of "Dry Shampoo for dogs". We created fur foam because our customers asked for it and because most dogs hate being sprayed which is the common application for dry shampoos or other natural essential oil applications. The Stop Bugging Me scent was one of our best sellers!!
But the bottle was plastic. We did a ton of research and scoured the planet to find a more eco-friendly dispenser and we couldn't find one!! 😩
The world produces over 300 million tons of plastic waste per year – adding nearly 8 million tons of plastic to our oceans annually. Scientists estimate that more than 8.3 billion tons of plastic has been produced since the early 1950’s, with roughly 60 percent of that plastic ending up in either a landfill or the natural environment.
We couldn't sleep at night knowing that we were contributing to the pollution, so we made the decision to put the earth before profit.
We have several earth-friendly packaging alternatives that we are actively pursuing but none are widely available yet. As soon as we find an earth friendly option Fur Foam will be back!!
Since Stop Bugging Me Fur Foam was one of our biggest sellers due to it's use of plant-based scents to repel ticks we created Stop Bugging Me Dog Balm!! The balm is a hand held size lip balm. Apply the balm on paws, inside of legs, under belly, on tail, and around neck. The balm can't be massaged through the fur like the foam but it is soothing on the skin and the scent repels insects. AND, most importantly, the packaging is biodegradable.😌
