Recyclable Flat-Pack Dog Beds

Rocky Brooks' Designs are Ideal for the Needs of Rescue Animals

— August 22, 2019 — Eco
The flat-pack dog bed harbors a number of benefits — from a convenience-focused design to stong affordability perks. Rocky Brooks — a graduate from the Northumbria University in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, has attempted to reimagine this canine furniture silhouette for animal rescue centers. The project produces an alternative to plastic beds.

Entitled 'Dog Goes Here,' the flat-pack dog bed is made of cardboard. The silhouette can be assembled, following a few easy steps — remove the recycled paper sleeve, unfold the bed into a shape, add bedding, and label the box with the furry friend's name. Rocky Brooks' product is recyclable, embracing the concept of sustainability, and cost-effective, which is surely a concern for rescue centers.

The flat-pack dog bed comes in three different sizes to satisfy the needs of a variety of breeds.
Trend Themes
1. Sustainability-focused Designs - Designing products with sustainability in mind helps address the growing concern of people towards eco-friendly products, creating a new market for companies and entrepreneurs alike.

3. Affordable Pet Products - Developing affordable pet products, such as recyclable flat-pack dog beds, can enable more people to adopt pets and support animal rescue centers, creating a new market for entrepreneurs and businesses alike.
Industry Implications
1. Furniture Manufacturing - Incorporating flat-pack designs into furniture manufacturing can create opportunities for companies to reduce transportation and assembly costs while enabling customers to enjoy the convenience of easy-to-assemble, compact furniture.
2. Pet Care - Developing affordable and sustainable pet care products, such as recyclable flat-pack dog beds, can create opportunities for entrepreneurs and businesses to cater to the needs of pet owners while supporting animal rescue centers in their cause.
3. Green Manufacturing - Green manufacturing aims to minimize the environmental impact of products and processes, creating a new market for sustainable and eco-friendly products that can address the growing concern of people towards sustainability and reduce the carbon footprint of companies and consumers alike.
