Dog clothing comes in many styles these days – the holiday costumes that make us grab our cameras, or the adorable coats and sweaters that tell the world how pampered our pooches are. But if your dog prefers a more classic, preppier style, the Recycled Benny Polo from Eco-Pup Dog Clothing might be for him.
If the Recycled Benny Polo looks like “people clothing,” that’s because it is. The folks at Eco-Pup Dog Clothing use 100% reclaimed cotton from human shirts to create the shirts in this unique line. This design practice creates two distinctive benefits.
First, the Recycled Benny Polo is eco-friendly, and has earned accolades such as the “Green Product Pick” from ModernDog. And second, each piece is one-of-a-kind, so your hipster dog doesn’t have to worry about any awkward run-ins at the dog park if another pooch is wearing the same shirt.
So just how hip is the Recycled Benny Polo? The shirt comes in a range of styles, from a blue stripe (pictured), to other polo-ish, striped patterns, to a sportier camouflage. And the range of sizes from XS to L should help to ensure that your dog finds a good fit. The cotton, possibly because of its reclaimed nature, is super-soft, like a favorite human shirt, and did not produce any signs of chafing or discomfort.
The price of this machine-washable polo rivals that of a human’s polo, retailing for $30 during some online sales. But if you and your pup are looking for a durable, eco-conscious shirt that’s sure to draw some compliments, the Recycled Benny Polo is a good bet.
Pros: Unique, chic design; soft and comfortable.
Cons: Price rivals that of a human polo shirt.
