Bonkers-bouncing, super-spinning and fabulous-floating, the Jive is the toughest ball we have ever seen - guaranteed. That's one reason it's so eco-friendly - it LASTS. Why buy 20 cheap balls and throw them all in landfill? Instead, buy one, keep it for years and THEN recycle it!

Jive is made from Zogoflex - an amazingly tough, non-toxic material which is buoyant and pliable. It's so durable it has a one-time replacement guarantee: if your dog damages it, you get a new one for free - one time. While no toy is completely indestructible, the Zogoflex return rate is less than 1%.

As well as it's eco credentials, Zogoflex is made ethically in America by West Paw Design. With high standards of welfare for the people who make these toys, West Paw were even named “Best Place to Work in Montana".

Why Zogoflex Jive is Eco

The bad: Ultimately it's still a plastic toy, and if it gets lost out in the environment it won't degrade and could harm wildlife. Additionally, it's made in America: the recycling must be done in America too.

The good: The Zogoflex range is made by West Paw design. This is a company with some serious ethical credentials. They are a certified B corp: they have have a “positive impact on society, workers, the community and the environment”.

They won the Best for the World: Environment award four times! West Paw are a founding member of the Pet Sustainability Coalition and committed to continue to support climate action to meet the Paris Agreement even while Trump pulled America out of the agreement.Their products are all non toxic and infinitely recyclable - they literally turn old Zogoflex toys into new ones!

They also have a Zogoflex range containing recycled ocean bound plastic, with Seaflex Drifty and Seaflex Sailz West Paw constantly focus on the environmental impact of every decision, even when it comes to the building they work in - see the video below where they reuse the concrete walls of their factory! Read more here.

The distributor who imports Zogoflex into the UK from America has strong environmental policies: they use 100% renewable energy, offset their travel and dispatch only with reused packaging. They always try to import by boat rather than plane also.

Why Zogoflex is Fairly Traded

West Paw manufacture everything they sell in their own factory, near the Rocky Mountains. They have never and will never outsource manufacturing to China or similar. This means that there are good labour laws in effect in the manufacture of these products, the staff are safe and paid well. But there is more to this story: they have even been named “Best Place to Work in Montana"!

Here is a quote from a member of the manufacturing team

“I love working at West Paw because I truly feel valued instead of just another “employee.” That means a lot to me. I'm excited to come to work everyday to see what new challenge I may come across and love that I can continuously learn and reach my goals!"

— Cassie Montgomery, Production Shift Lead, & Dog's Best Friend.

West Paw also pay staff to volunteer in the local community as part of their role - currently, they are working with the Trust for Public Lands to create an off the lead Dog Park, making a $50,000 dollar donation and also paying staff while they volunteer at the park to maintain it.

How to recycle this product

To recycle your Zogoflex or Seaflex product, please return it to us by post. When we have collected 5kg worth of Zogoflex we will send them back to Westpaw Design so they can be made into new toys as part of their closed loop manufacturing system. We will use royal mail land and sea shipping, which is the lowest carbon option we can find. Zogoflex cannot be in the UK.

Recycling Zogoflex in American has a significant carbon footprint, you may decide to dispose of the toy in non-recyclable waste. However, it’s worth remembering that Zogoflex toys, in most cases, last for a very very long time. Our own Zogoflex toy has outlived several doggy owners. Recycling these toys into new Zogoflex toys keeps this chain going and keeps the plastic in circulation for ever.

When there is a UK made equivalent to Zogoflex we would stock this instead to reduce the footprint further.

Materials

Zogoflex toys are made from plastic: specifically a thermoplastic elastomer. The material is BPA-and-phthalate-free, as well as Non-toxic & Dishwasher Safe. This material infinitely recyclable and the manufacturing process is closed loop and zero waste. HOWEVER, the toy is not recyclable with general plastics (#7). To be recycled it must be returned to the factory in America.
