A simple toy creating classic fun for a good cause! Let your dog join in on the fun and try out the zero-waste lifestyle too with these colorful upcycled tug-of-war ropes. Each toy is handmade from discarded, donated, or otherwise second-hand and reused t-shirts that were washed, cut into strips, and braided personally by our owner Haley. (All toys currently available were actually made out of all of her old work uniforms before she started this company!) The ropes are braided and knotted tightly to be durable for long-lasting play and for every toy purchased we will donate $1 directly to Oceana to help protect our oceans!
Details: Though these ropes should last your dog a while, they will eventually fray and come apart like any other dog toy. Dogs should be monitored while playing with the ropes if they are starting to come apart so they do not injest any t-shirt pieces. These toys are not returnable and are intended to be sold simply for the $1 donation from each purchase and enough to make up for shipping.
Sizing: The small ropes are tight single braids, the medium ropes use longer fabric strips that are double braided for durability, and the large ropes use twice as much fabric as the small ones, are double braided like the mediums, and are longer with an extra knot in the middle for extra durability and fun.
