In our EcoBox Pawsome the cute little reusable jute pouches for dog treats are made by Plenty Of Sunshine Sisters!
Here’s their story:
Hi there, I am Amy and I am one half of the Plenty of Sunshine Sisters. My sister, Lucy, makes up the other half. We both come from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, and share similar interests in travel, animals and crafting. We wanted to find a way that we could combine these interests which is why we decided to start the Plenty of Sunshine Sisters. We share a lot of interests, but we also enjoy different things – for example, Lucy is a bit of a gin aficionado and I have a puppy and cats at home – so our interests complement each other so that we can reach a wider audience. On top of this, I have just bought a new home and Lucy is looking to buy one herself so we spend a lot of time on Pinterest and other shopping sites looking for things that can make a new house a home. Because of the current lockdown situation, since we had a lot more time on our hands, we thought we’d try our hand at making some of our own useful items and decorations. We use a cricut machine to make a range of different products, such as mugs, pouches, signs, t-shirts and bookmarks. We’ve also recently made a range of greetings cards including a father’s day card to come from a dog.
Our most popular product is a reusable drink pouch which is super handy and versatile and can be personalised with whatever image or phrase you want. They are great for those wanting to cut down on their single use plastic, can be flattened so they are lightweight and don’t take up much room in a bag and can even go in the freezer to create cool smoothies or slushies. Another product that we offer are dog treat pouches that can be personalised with your pooch’s name and come in burlap or natural mini drawstring bags. These are perfect for filling up with your dog’s favourite snacks to take out on a long walk or for dog training sessions.
Some of our designs we get through open sources but others we make ourselves and we offer personalisation of all our projects so that everyone can get exactly what they’re looking for. It’s a relatively new business but we are looking forward to creating amazing products for people for a long time to come. We are even starting to expand our range with celebration packs such as birthday packs including a card, confetti, badge and cake topper and more home décor items. These include a tiered tray display line which is a big decorating trend in the USA and starting to make its way over to the UK and involves assembling items such as wooden signs, mugs and bunting to represent a specific theme that is usually updated seasonally.
