Jax and Bones may not be completely eco-friendly, but it's still taking significant strides to ensuring a more sustainable future for us and our four-legged pals, which in our opinion, is plenty to bark about.

It's entire bedding collection, for instance, is made in-house in the United States. The beds themselves are filled with post-consumer fiber made from recycled plastic bottles, and we'd love to see hemp or organic cotton covers as a next step. Jax and Bones photo

Jax and Bones' Good Karma rope toys, which the company claims will improve dental health by naturally flossing teeth, are made from 100 percent hand-tied cotton (albeit the conventional kind) and are colored with vegetable dyes. A portion of the proceeds from each purchase goes to The Rescue Train, a California-based non-profit no-kill dog and cat rescue.

Meanwhile, a solid 100 percent of the proceeds from Jax and Bone's Candle With a Cause—available in Puppy Love and Cat's Meow scents—are donated to The Rescue Train. Featuring images of rescued animals, each candle is made from all-natural soy wax. ::Jax and Bones
