Lake Tahoe company creates sustainable water bowl for pets

Special to the Sun

KINGS BEACH, Calif. — Kings Beach-based company AnyBowl LLC recently announced the launch of Eddy Bowl — a portable, reusable, recyclable, sustainably sourced water bowl for pets.

Made out of 100 percent bamboo fiber and coated with PLA — a plant-based, waterproof film derived from renewable resources — the Eddy Bowl does not contain harmful plastics, silicones or chemicals harmful to the environment or pets.

Its plant-based makeup makes it completely recyclable.

"Living in North Lake Tahoe, where we are reminded daily that our natural resources can be taken away almost instantaneously and eco-conscious practices are strongly encouraged, I knew the Eddy Bowl would be well received," said Carol Piechocinski, president/founder for AnyBowl. "Here in Tahoe, where the community is keen on preserving the environment, outdoor activities abound, and dog owners are the majority of the population, the need for a convenient, reusable and earth-friendly pet bowl was a given."

Measuring only 7.75 inches long and 1.75 inches wide, and weighing four grams, the Eddy Bowl can easily be packed into a backpack or purse, and when folded in half, slipped into a pocket or wallet. When opened, the Eddy Bowl fits perfectly into the palm of a hand.

While the Eddy Bowl is believed to be 100 percent biodegradable, AnyBowl LLC, has plans to have the product tested at the Organic Waste Systems in Ohio for official certification.
