An environmentally conscious company

The Farmer's Dog UK is nestled in the winding Mid-Devon hills on Elston Farm. The farm is always striving to work in harmony with nature, taking part in forward-thinking initiatives such as Silvopasture trials, a rewilding project and renewable energy sources.

Ethically minded recyclable packaging

The Woolcool® packaging is made with 100% felted sheep’s wool and is recyclable, compostable and biodegradable. There are a number of ways you can reuse the wool liners including hanging baskets, pet beds, rabbit hutches, craft and homework projects, protecting plants from frost and slugs, pipe lagging, pads for kneeling and more.

However, if you aren’t looking to reuse the wool liner, simply remove the plastic liner which can be put in your standard plastic recycling bin, then just put the wool liner either into a compost bin or dig into the soil in the garden, as the wool will release valuable nitrates back into the soil as it breaks down. Some local authorities will accept the wool in household garden waste bins but even if it ends up in the general waste, it will break down in landfill.
