(PRESS RELEASE) Beco Pets has partnered with Only An Ocean to more deeply introduce its eco-friendly line of pet products into the U.S.

Ten years ago, U.K.-based Beco founders George Bramble and Toby Massey recognized that 4.5 billion people across Asia and beyond use bamboo chopsticks every day. By using the astounding amount of unused bamboo chopsticks off-cuts to create dog and cat bowls, their journey began.

“Only An Ocean’s goal is to find truly unique products backed by passionate and talented teams, and with Beco we’ve found just that. Their mission to help clean the air, the ocean, and be a positive partner to the environment at large has inspired us as a company. Through our distributor and retailer network, we hope to help spread Beco’s mission and make their products readily available to more and more consumers,” says Only An Ocean co-founder Cheryl Pedersen.

Apart from its bowls, Beco’s full line of pet products includes degradable and compostable poop bags, a large variety of toys and more. With some scientists believing the oceans will have more plastic bottles than fish in them by 2050, Beco’s Rough & Tough toy collection was especially well received at SuperZoo. Each toy is made from up to 15 recycled plastic bottles. Through the sale of these toys, over 1.8 million plastic bottles have been recycled in the past year.

A common misunderstanding among buyers is that eco-friendly often means reduced quality, such as durability. Only An Ocean and Beco are working hard to discount this misnomer. “The grade of our line is in no way reduced by using eco-friendly materials! Quite the opposite actually,” says Beco founder George Bramble. “It’s not just about us, it’s about helping all eco-friendly brands change the stigma, and we have worked incredibly hard to ensure our entire line is of utmost quality. Fully guaranteed.”

Above all, Only An Ocean and Beco want to stress that by buying smarter, retailers can be part of the solution. “We all want to help, but finding the time and energy is difficult. For retailers, by buying smarter, such as carrying Beco products like the Rough & Tough toys, they can join the war on plastic and enable their customers to do the same,” says Only An Ocean marketing director Aaron Lowe.
