Becobowls are made from our unique plant fibre material. It is this material that makes our eco-friendly pet bowls that little bit special. Made from waste plant fibres they are completely sustainable and fully biodegradable when finished with.
Designed to be eco-friendly and functional, the Becobowl is tough and durable. They are dishwasher friendly and should last for years in the home. They are available in a large, medium, small and puppy or toy breed shallow size,depending on your pet's appetite and size! The bowls are available in brown, blue, green and pink colours.

Around 80% of the Becothings material is made up of fibres from bamboo and rice husks. Rice husks are a by-product of rice production, so it is a great material to use as it is normally thrown away! Although you might picture bamboo as tall thin trees, it is actually a breed of grass and so grows incredibly fast. This means all the bamboo we use can be sustainably grown.
Both these materials are mixed with a resin created from amino acids. It is this resin that bonds all the fibres together. Importantly it also allows the mix to break down. When you place a plant fibre product in warm, damp conditions, like a compost heap or buried in the ground, the resin will start to break down. This in-turn allows the fibres to break down, eventually the product will fully biodegrade away. This process will usually take around 2 to 3 years depending on the environmental conditions.
