You, Your Pet, Our Planet!

Caring for Our Planet 

For decades, one of Snooza’s deepest convictions has been its commitment to planet Earth, minimising waste and ensuring our products are built to last. It wasn’t that long ago that we had a worm farm in the back of our factory, where we would dispose of our organic waste and used paper. 

Today, the market is increasingly flooded with cheap, disposable pet beds that too quickly end up as landfill.  We don’t want Snooza products to end up as landfill, so we do what we can to ensure they last for as long as possible.  We do this by making durable, high-quality products, and offering services that can prolong the life of your Snooza.

The choices we make about materials, components, sourcing, packaging, and shipping also have our planet at heart.  Whether by recycled or compostable materials, greener foams, solar panels or organic cotton, we are constantly striving to lighten our touch and reduce our carbon paw-print on our planet.

Thoughtful Materials

Snoozafill, our fibre-fill, is made from recycled PET, (from recycled plastic drink bottles) blended with Australian made foam crumb.

Australian foam manufacturers operate to the highest standards in the world, which is why we only use locally sourced, Australian made foam in our orthopaedic beds.

We only use Australian steel, which we use to manufacture our Snooza raised beds.

We choose to source as many materials from Australia as possible- for quality, and to reduce our carbon footprint from international transport.

In 2019, we upgraded our cotton products to organic cotton. Our Organic Cotton Pet Futon is the first product to use this natural fibre. Organic cotton plantations use up to 80% less water than non-organic cotton.  Organic cotton does not use pesticides, or herbicides, which are not only detrimental to our planet, but also to cotton farmers.  We also believe that using organic cotton ultimately produces a better product for your pet.

In 2021 we launched the Doo Doo Good Eco Bags, fully biodegradable and compostable poop waste bags that also support assistance animal charities with 50% of sales profits. The eco bag Dispenser is made from fabric off-cuts from Snooza beds!

In 2022 we replaced most mailing satchels with a re-usable and compostable mailer, supporting circular economy and reducing plastics in landfill.

Our quest to make our business and products greener continues, as we constantly explore new technologies and better practices.

Dog Bed Sustainability

Made to Last

Snooza is famous for its commitment to making quality pet products and we employ skilled designers and seamstresses, to ensure our products are built to last.

Refresh

Our beds are washable. You can remove most covers on our beds and wash them.

Refill

Many beds contain Snoozafill, which can be purchased separately to plump up your bed when needed.

Replace

We sell replacement covers and parts. Rather than purchase a new bed, you can simply replace its cover or foam.

Repair

If your dog is a chewer and damages their bed, our Snooza Repair Service is here to help.  Our seamstresses can repair most damage and if they can’t, we’ll let you know.  The repair service is free, but if zips or hardware need replacing, we’ll charge a minimal fee.

Rehome

We refurbish and donate old beds to pet shelters. Years ago, we established the Save-A-Bed Scheme, to discourage customers to throw away their unwanted Snoozas and to send them back to us instead. We then repair the bed if possible, refurbish it and donate it to a number of refuges and animal welfare organisations that we support.

All of these initiatives and Snooza services are our way of reducing our impact on our planet, one bed at a time.
