Your canine can spin a few circles and curl up in this Planet-Friendly Nest Bed, feeling cozy and secure inside its plush walls. The outer walls and removable center pillow of the Nest beds are made of soft faux suede with a tough 420 denier nylon packcloth base. They unzip to access an inner bolster and cushion made of ripstop nylon. The inner bolster and cushion are filled with SmartFill, Big Shrimpy’s 100% recycled fiber. The inner bolster and cushion are odor and water-resistant, but if necessary, they can be unzipped to remove and wash the SmartFill. Of course, the outer covers and inner bolster/cushion are washable as well. This bed is designed to be flipped inside-out to further extend its usable life. The dimensions below are for the inside of the bolster (the actual sleeping area of the dog).
|Small||17″ x 19″||6.25 lbs|
|Medium||22″ x 22″||10.70 lbs|
|Large||26″ x 31″||17.70 lbs|
What exactly is SmartFill?
SmartFill is a 100% pre-consumer recycled polyester fiber. It is machine washable and dryable. SmartFill is a dense, cushiony fiber that makes Big Shrimpy beds feel more substantial when compared to most other beds. Because SmartFill is made of many individual tufts of fiber, rather than long intertwined virgin fiber, Big Shrimpy beds can be opened up and “refluffed” to restore the loft of the fiber.
In order to maintain strict quality control, Big Shrimpy is unable to accept any items that show signs of use. This includes any worn fabric, any traces of pet hair, any pulled hang tags, etc.
To ensure a smooth return if you choose not to keep your Big Shrimpy product, we recommend taking the following steps:
Big Shrimpy creates pet products that are comfortable and functional for pets, stylish enough for any living space, and include design features useful to pet owners. Within these parameters, Big Shrimpy strives to wisely use Earth’s resources by designing their products to last longer than typical pet products and by using recycled materials in the majority of their products.
Big Shrimpy emphasizes manufacturing processes that reduce the amount of natural resources withdrawn from the Earth. They do this by: 1) salvaging waste materials from other industries to use in their products, thus diverting waste from landfills and reducing their company’s demand for new raw materials, and 2) designing products to have a longer than average life in order to slow the cycle of throw-away-and-buy-another cycle, again reducing the need for new raw materials.
Big Shrimpy “packages” these environmentally friendly characteristics in products that are both eco-friendly and functional. Over 93% of Big Shrimpy products sold use recycled materials! Big Shrimpy also donates a percentage of sales to a nonprofit organization that develops environmentally sustainable business practices.
