Do you love being an early adopter? It’s great finding something unusual and stylish that no one knows about yet, and I’m so excited to bring you that something today! This is a brand new traveling with your pup product, and I love it. It’s made by my go-to brand, PawNosh, maker of the gorgeous recycled glass Cubby Bowl (we have four of them…Sophie and Jasper had to have matching food and water bowls, of course :-)). But, these new dog travel bowls are ingenious! You can win one; details for the giveaway at the end of this post.
So what’s so special about the Fire Hose Bowl? First, it’s made from reclaimed fire hoses. Yes, fire hoses! PawNosh loves recycling and reclaiming. They partnered with a local California company, Oxgut® Hose Co., to design a handmade, collapsible travel bowl that would make use of this storied and very sturdy material. I asked PawNosh co-founder, Sachi Ushihara, what inspired them to use fire hose:
“The PawNosh Fire Hose Bowl was inspired by our desire to bring a safe and sustainable option to pet owners for their travel needs. Fire hose is regularly safety tested and retired after a number of years, with no formal process for reclamation. The vast majority of it meets an untimely demise in landfill. By upcycling fire hose and marrying it with food-grade, non-toxic silicone, we bring a novel, functional and beautiful accessory to all pets and pet owners on the go.”
Isn’t that an awesome idea? Yes! And, even better, the bowls are handsome…very stylish! Clean lines, crisp in white with a pop of color trim in either khaki, cabernet or royal blue, they are lightweight, easy to fold and can go on the top rack of our dishwasher. And, every component of the bowl is sourced in the USA.
The Fire Hose Bowl is just coming on the market tomorrow, July 27. Our friends at PawNosh chose Bark & Swagger to be the first blog to give one away!
