Comments Off on Honest Pet Products makes natural pet toys out of sustainable hemp and organic wool

Honest Pet Products manufactures natural pet toys made of sustainable hemp  and organic wool. Their hemp toys are made in Wisconsin by adults with developmental disabilities and several of their cat toys are made by women supporting their impoverished families living in the Gobi Desert and Nepal. In exchange for this rare economic opportunity, the nomadic sheepherders agree to protect the endangered snow leopards who share their habitat. The organic dog and cat shampoos are made in the USA using 100% organic oils and extracts with no detergents, dyes or chemicals. Honest Pet Products stands on the solid principle of leaving the planet better when we leave it – one pet toy at a time. + Honest Pet Products Lead image via Torrey Wiley The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Indoor gardening is now easier than ever. Oakland-based startup Back to the Roots designed a self-watering planter that uses ancient and low-tech technology that’ll do the watering for you without the need for expensive apps or micro-sensors. The key to the self-watering planter is the miniature clay olla—a low-fired clay pot used in North Africa for thousands of years—that holds water that seeps slowly out from the porous sides. The product also comes with a 64 ounce mason jar filled with “organic moisture-balancing biochar and organic nutrient-rich soil,” two organic fertilizer spikes, and organic cherry tomato seeds. You can find the self-watering planter at Barnes & Noble store nationwide and select Home Depots; the product will also be sold online in the near future. + Back to the Roots Self Watering Planter The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
