BecoBowl wins Glee Awards 09 – Bests New Pet Product

Here at Becothings we are very excited to announce that our new BecoBowl has scooped the award for best new pet product at the 2009 Glee Petindex New Product awards! We were presented with the award at the inaugural Pet Industry Awards dinner (Sunday 20th September), which was sponsored by Nestle Purina and Mars, and organised by the Pet Care Trust.

Following a rigorous judging process during Sunday’s Glee Petindex, the shortlisted entries for the Glee Petindex New Product Awards were chosen by Martin Smart, publisher of ideas4petretail.co.uk and Steve Fowler, director of Pampurred Pets.  Drawing from a shortlist of three, the winning products stood out from the crowd thanks to their unique design, retail appeal and competitive pricing.

The BecoBowl is the world’s first eco-friendly alternative to the common pet bowl. Made from rice husks, a product of rice farming, the BecoBowl is highly sustainable to produce as well as being fully biodegradable when thrown away. With a life expectancy of 5 – 10 years, the BecoBowl works in just the same way as a regular bowl for your dog or cat. It can even be cleaned in the dishwasher. Once finished with, the BecoBowl can either be sent to landfill or added to the compost heap. Depending on the conditions, the bowl will disintegrate in 2 – 3 years.
What the judges said: “The Becobowl is the first bio-degradable food bowl to reach the market.  Made from plant fibre material, the product offers green credentials and a unique alternative to the traditional bowls on the market.  Superb!”

The prices for the bowls range from RRP £2.99 (small) to RRP £4.99 (large), with colours in Natural, Brown, Blue, Green and Pink. The BecoBowl can be purchased from any Pets Corner store in the UK – www.petscorner.co.uk
