The outer covers are made of natural, breathable, and durable cotton, organic whenever possible. The dog bed cushion insert provides a deeper, more restful sleep for our pets and is particularly ideal for dogs who need therapeutic support.
The insert is made of natural latex foam, which is eco-friendly, chemical and pesticide free, and naturally anti-microbial and hypoallergenic. So, the dog bed insert naturally repels dust, mites, mold and mildew. The insert also is biodegradable, and won't ever clog up a landfill.
Natural latex foam is made using sap from the Rubber tree. The tree is tapped, and the milk from the tree is collected in a bucket similar to the way maple syrup is collected from Maple trees. The sap lends itself well to a process in which it can be molded and shaped.
The natural latex foam cushion is 100% made of natural products (97%-99% natural tree sap with the remainder composed of natural soaps and residuals from the manufacturing process). When exposed to the elements, the cushion will biodegrade in as fast as a couple of weeks, and turn completely to dust.
A natural and renewable resource, natural latex costs more, but it better for you, your dog, and the environment.
