My Promise to Make a Difference
In late 2010, at age 51, I sensed the proverbial strong desire to “make a difference.” with my life that could someway help others. I knew I wanted to use my creativity and compassion for “all things living” to do something that truly mattered. The only question was: “how?” And the answer that slowly began to emerge in response to that question started with a torn-up, ratty-looking drink coaster.
My two adored Yorkies, Willie and Sophie, were spoiled with every conceivable toy on the market, and yet these luxury toys continuously landed in the “will not play with” bin. Then one day I happened to throw a fabric drink coaster across the room, and the unexpected response from both of them was a clear: “PLAY TIME ON!”
This inadvertent drink coaster /fetch game became a daily ritual of great fun and exercise. However, even 5 lb Willie could tear them apart with ease. So, I thought, maybe I can design a similar version with safer, more durable and natural materials, and.... Voila! Eco-Fetcher was born. Not only did they play daily with it, it proved to be durable with the most “super-chewer” testers from 3lbs to 110lbs!! The requests from pet owners for more safe, quality made, truly NATURAL toys for their dogs and cats was overwhelming. So within 3 months Eco-Tugger, Eco-Mouser, Eco-Pouncer and Eco-Pouncer Mini became “part of the family.”
I now know that starting HONEST PET PRODUCTS had become the answer to that life-changing question: How do I make a difference?
