Hurtta Training Vest ECO leaping NZ

An environmentally friendly spin on your Hurtta favourites.

The ECO series of Hurtta products incorporate strength-tested recycled eco-friendly materials for long-lasting durability, comfort and control. These are ideal for active dogs, daily walks and bigger adventures. The Hurtta ECO series continues to grow because we are committed to utilising recycled materials, such as polyester made from PET plastic bottles, whenever possible. ECO products also detail which recycled materials were used in their construction. While it may seem like a small step, choosing products made with recycled materials is a positive step for the health and well-being of dogs, people and the planet.

Materials

Polyester fabric is made from Polyethylene terephthalate, or PET. It is made from the same material as PET bottles, the most common type of single-use plastic bottles. The PET bottles are recycled into polyester yarn that is woven to make the recycled fabric.

Polyurethane (PU) is recycled from waste materials made from polyurethane like sandwich panels and insulation.
