    The Backstory

    Awoo—pronounced ahh-woo—is a small, women-owned pet company run by two dog moms, Mallory MacDonald and Francine Evans, who were tired of how difficult it was to find sustainably-made pet essentials that looked as good as the ethics that went into making them.

     

    The US- and UK-based duo decided to put their skills in crafting and designing jewelry into the pet industry, where they could upgrade conventional pet accessories into products that matched an eco-friendly, modern lifestyle.

    Ethical and Sustainable Pet Products

    The ingredients that go into making dog products start at the source and go through a series of manufacturing processes that ultimately arrive in the mail to your home. Here's a quick look at how Awoo goes above and beyond to ensure that the products you receive are sustainable from start to finish.

    High-Quality Ingredients 

    All of Awoo's dog toys are made from 100% woolsourced from humane companies Fuhrmann and New Zealand Wool Services. Wool is a renewable material, and since Awoo uses 100% natural wool without manmade additives, the toys are biodegradable and recyclable.

    The dyes used in the dog toys contain a combination of natural and synthetic dyes that have been tested and certified under these textile standards:

    The Manufacturing Process

    Awoo ensures its products are made under the most rigorous standards through partnering with GoodWeave—a grassroots company whose mission is to stop child labor and improve working conditions for companies worldwide. 

    Each dog toy is hand-made by a co-op of female artisans in Nepal. GoodWeave strives to remove discrimination from the workplace by helping women receive fair pay and protecting children from child labor.

    Giving Back to the Community

    Awoo doesn't stop at responsibly-managed products; it also nurtures the community by partnering with non-profit organizations dedicated to improving the lives of pets. 

    The company currently partners with Muddy Paws Rescue, an organization that helps rehome dogs through fostering and adoption. In the past, Awoo has also helped raise funds for American Humane, Paws with a Cause, and Pet Partners

    Safety Is the Best Policy

    Though the 100% natural wool and non-toxic dye are digestible, meaning when dogs accidentally swallow pieces of the toy, it is less likely to cause harm, the toy is not edible. If your dog tries to eat the toy, always take the toy away.
