Hurtta dog apparel and gear make great hand-me-downs

We all know how quickly dogs grow, which means they will inevitably grow out of their apparel. But just because a product is too small for your dog, doesn’t mean that it’s too small for another. Ask friends and family or look for an appropriately sized dog at your local dog park.

If your product is in good enough shape, you can even sell or gift it because Hurtta products are often in high demand. You can sell them at traditional flea markets or online dog flea markets. Even if your Hurtta product needs a few repairs, it most likely has a lot of life in it and can be used for a good while longer by the next little adventurer.

If your Hurtta product is no longer suitable for use, or its materials are not repairable, you can drop it off at a textile recycling point. For the recycling of reusable textiles, look for bins marked “clothing and accessories”. But note that your product should be mostly intact and clean to be accepted.

If the garment is too worn and no longer usable, please clean and tightly pack it in a plastic bag and drop it off at your local textile disposal collection site. Dirty, unrepairable apparel and gear should be disposed of in mixed waste bins.

Sort & recycle those packaging materials

Recycling packaging materials is much better for the environment than simply throwing them away. That way, the raw materials can be reused and you help to conserve natural resources. Simply follow the recycling symbols on the product’s packaging for how to sort and recycle it.

Sort hanging tags, cardboard hangers, and brown paper bags from e-commerce orders into cardboard collection bins. There is no need to remove any tape, hooks, or labels. The brown paper string of the hanging tags also belongs in the cardboard recycling bin, but any woven strings belong in the mixed waste bin.

You can identify packaging approved for cardboard packaging recycling by the codes printed in the triangle recycling symbol, e.g. cardboard and paper
packaging PAP 21, PAP 22, and corrugated cardboard packaging PAP 20.

<p><strong>Sort & recycle protective plastic bags</strong><br/></p><p>Sort and recycle plastic bags used to protect products during transport in plastic recycling collection bins. The plastic protective bag must be clean, but there is no need to remove tape or stickers before recycling. You can identify packaging approved for plastic packaging recycling by the codes printed in the triangle recycling symbol, e.g. LDPE 4, and PP 05.</p>

<p><strong>Anything remaining is considered mixed waste</strong><br/></p><p>There won’t be much left but any remaining parts of the packaging should be sorted in mixed waste collection bins. For example, the nylon cord and black hanging hook of the hanging tag, or the elastic cord that holds the product in place on the cardboard hanger. If the product comes with a small, moisture-reducing silica gel pack, it too belongs in the mixed waste bin.</p>

<p><strong>Before it goes, consider if it can be reused</strong><br/><br/>Before disposing of any packaging material in a mixed waste bin, think if it might be able to be used in some other way. For example, a rubber band as a hair tie. Read more to find other clever ways to repurpose packaging materials. Nature-loving doggos will surely appreciate it.</p>
