We believe that even a small company can have a big impact. (Or, when it comes to the environment, a small impact.) So, we craft our products mindfully—always in America, always by hand, and often with eco-friendly materials. We empower our employees to innovate, with headquarters in inspiring Bozeman, Montana, and perks like paid time off to volunteer. And, we’re honored to have earned our B Corp certification, joining the ranks of transparent, accountable companies committed to healthy, forward-thinking business practices—the kind that make big impacts. And sometimes, small ones.
B Corp Certified
What’s a B Corp? We’re among the companies that aim for a more balanced “triple bottom line”—measuring our success not just by profit, but how we treat our people and planet. Certified by the non-profit B Lab, B Corps hold an above-and-beyond commitment to healthier employees, sustainable practices, transparency and accountability. Our B Corp status was earned for a variety of reasons—highlights include:
Handcrafting 100% of our products in the USA
Manufacturing completely safe products: BPA and phthalate-free, non-toxic and FDA compliant
Relying on eco-friendly materials
Hosting a Join the Loop® toy recycling program
Working from an environmentally conscious office building
Offering generous wages and benefits (including flexible schedules) for employees
Why West Paw Design is leading the way in Pet Manufacturing
West Paw envisions a world where business success is friendly to people and the planet. We seek to be a transformative business leader that unleashes our people's greatest talents to create amazing pet products. We believe that business can be a force of positive change in our world starting with the communities and people we serve. We support this movement and hope that you'll join us on this journey.
Hand-crafted in the USA
Our beds and pet toys are truly labors of love—handmade by skilled craftspeople at our headquarters in Bozeman, MT. Passing through real human hands, every product is showered with extra attention and care—and an infusion of pride from the person who made it.
Pet Industry Sustainability Coalition
When we started making environmentally-friendly pet toys and beds, there wasn’t a guiding organization to help us grow our business in an Earth-friendly way—so we helped found one. The Pet Industry Sustainability Coalition unites pet-driven businesses, providing them with resources so they can collaborate on advancing their business goals while maintaining their commitment to the planet. In a nutshell, it’s a way for everyone in our industry to work together—not just towards superior products, but towards sustainable, community-minded business solutions.
We choose to use eco-friendly materials in our beds and toys wherever we can—stuffing made from recycled bottles, plastic made from old chew toys, and organically-grown hemp, cotton, and catnip. By relying on environmentally-friendly materials, we help keep waste out of landfills, chemicals out of soil and water, and toxins out of toys—while still crafting extraordinarily durable beds and toys. When things last longer, people replace them less—and that’s pretty eco-conscious, too.
Donations and Sponsorships
We love a good cause—West Paw Design has proudly pitched in with Working Dogs for Conservation, donated factory-second beds and toys to animal shelters, and offered up resalable pet beds for auction at community fundraisers. While we can’t take on every cause, we relish pitching in on pet-centric or locally-minded initiatives wherever we can.
