Lake Tahoe company creates sustainable water bowl for pets
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.
Prices vary depending on size. You can purchase the bowls online, or at local retailers and stores, including New Moon Natural Foods, Tahoe Central Market, Tahoe Mountain Sports, Scraps and Pet Station.
Plans to collaborate with larger nationwide outdoor retailers and brands are currently in the works.
