EcoSalon-Approved Soccer Ball for Fido’s World Cup Fever


Now that the 2010 FIFA World Cup is underway, footie fever is spreading fast. While the World Cup isn’t looking so green, some partners are trying to do their part – Nike’s World Cup jerseys are made from recycled PET water bottles – and you and your dog can get in on the recycling action with Planet Dog’s Orbee Tuff Soccer Ball.

Even though David Beckham is stuck on the bench this World Cup, England’s injured star was recently spotted playing fetch with his bulldog Coco in a Beverly Hills dog park using the Planet Dog soccer ball. Too bad one green dog toy can’t help Beckhams’ monstrous carbon footprint!

The ball is made out of non-toxic materials so you don’t have to worry about chemicals like phthalates and BPA. It also scores by being made in the USA and is recyclable. The 5-inch diameter soccer ball is great for strong chewers who destroy your average tennis ball in minutes.
