Olive Green Dog recently launched its online store for eco-friendly doggie goodies. The Austin, Texas based company hopes that the combination of pet goods and concern for the environment will attract consumers in a very crowded online marketplace for pet goods.
“Green is not necessarily a new trend. Years ago, our mothers said ‘Buy something nice and make it last’, meaning less can be more. We live in a world bent on throwawayism, chock full of cheaply made, potentially unsafe dog products. We understand that responsible dog owners are looking for options.” says Gina Quiroga, co-founder of Olive Green Dog. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
In the interest of keeping things even-handed, the companies below will be Olive Green Dog’s competitors in the green pet marketplace:
