As long-time pet parents, we’ve come across all kinds of products for our beloved fur family members. The problem is we often don’t know how the products are made or who made them. Are they mass-produced in a sweatshop factory environment? How are the workers treated? Are they paid a living wage? What do the companies do with their industrial waste? Shopping for well-made and kind-to-the-earth pet goods can be a bleak affair. As creators, we set out to counter the lack of transparency and responsibility found in the process of producing pet goods. We created Gone to the Dogs, an ethical platform from which we can share the best of our ideas and our collaborations with talented makers and artisans.
