Welcome to the WeatherBeeta Rug Eco-Exchange: Recycle, Save, and Upgrade.

Welcome to the WeatherBeeta Rug Eco-Exchange...

At PetnPony, we're passionate about horses and the great outdoors. We understand the vital role the environment plays in our lives and the lives of our beloved equine companions. That's why we're thrilled to introduce you to the WeatherBeeta Rug Eco-Exchange, a program that embodies our commitment to sustainability and our love for horses.

Sustainability at Heart

For years, PetnPony has been a trusted stockist of WeatherBeeta, a brand known for its high-quality, innovative, and durable protection for horses and dogs. WeatherBeeta's dedication to sustainability aligns perfectly with our values. They've been pioneers in the industry, utilizing synthetic materials in horse rugs and dog coats, reducing their ecological footprint, and setting new standards for environmentally conscious equestrian gear.

The WeatherBeeta Rug Eco-Exchange: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Old turnout rugs often find themselves gathering dust in stables and barns, contributing to clutter and waste. With the WeatherBeeta Rug Eco-Exchange, we're offering you the opportunity to make a positive impact on the environment while upgrading your horse's comfort and style.

Here's how it works: when you pledge to recycle your old turnout rug through PetnPony, we'd like to unite and show appreciation by offering you a £50 discount towards your next WeatherBeeta rug from selected lines. It's a win-win situation – you help the environment while giving your horse the best in comfort and protection.

Claim Your £50 WeatherBeeta Voucher

Claiming your £50 WeatherBeeta voucher is a straightforward process. Just fill out the form provided, and you'll be well on your way to making a difference and ensuring your horse enjoys the best in comfort and protection. Every small step counts toward a greener and cleaner world, and your participation in the WeatherBeeta Rug Eco-Exchange is a significant one.

Repurposing Old Rugs

Repurposing old horse rugs is a creative and eco-friendly way to extend their lifespan and reduce waste. Here are ten ideas to help you repurpose your old horse rugs:

1. Dog Bed or Crate Liner: Cut the rug into the appropriate size and shape for your dog's bed or crate. It provides insulation and comfort for your furry friend.

2. Car Trunk Liner: Use an old horse rug as a liner for your car's trunk to protect it from dirt, mud, and pet hair. It's easy to clean and durable.

3. Picnic Blanket: Trim and clean the rug to create a waterproof and durable picnic blanket. The rug's thickness will provide insulation and keep you dry.

4. Pet Shelter Flooring: If you have an outdoor pet shelter or kennel, use the rug as flooring to keep your pets dry and comfortable.

5. Outdoor Furniture Cushions: Cut the rug into cushions for outdoor furniture. The durable material can withstand outdoor conditions.

6. Rug for Entryway or Mudroom: Trim and clean the rug to create an entryway or mudroom rug. It will help trap dirt and mud before it enters your home.

7. Donate or Give Away: If your old horse rugs are still in decent condition, consider donating them to an animal shelter, horse rescue, or fellow equestrians who may have a use for them.

8. Outdoor Camping Mat: Cut the rug into smaller pieces and use them as durable and waterproof mats for your camping trips. They can help keep your tent clean and dry.

9. DIY Tote Bags: Transform your old horse rug into sturdy tote bags by sewing them into desired shapes and sizes. These bags can be used for grocery shopping, beach outings, or carrying bulky items.

10. Seat Covers for Outdoor Events: Cut the rug into squares or rectangles and use them as seat covers for outdoor events, such as picnics, concerts, or sporting events. They provide a comfortable and dry seating option.

Before repurposing your horse rugs, make sure to clean them thoroughly to remove any dirt, debris, or odours. Additionally, consider the type of material your rug is made from, as some materials may be more suitable for certain repurposing projects than others.

Introducing the Eco-Friendly Green-Tec Range

Within this exchange, we're excited to share that the Green-Tec range, WeatherBeeta's most eco-friendly rug, has undergone a stunning makeover for Winter 2023. Now available in the captivating DragonFly Blue/Bottle Green colourway and featuring a higher 1200d denier, this range is a game-changer.

The Green-Tec range is not just about style; it's about substance. Crafted using recycled plastics for the outer and lining, each Green-Tec rug saves over 380* plastic bottles from ending up in the ocean or landfill. But that's not all; the production process uses over 50% less energy, and the PU waterproof coating includes recycled camera lenses, further reducing the environmental impact.

Plus, their commitment extends to packaging. The Green-Tec range comes in recyclable packaging made from PCR (post-consumer recyclable plastic). It's a comprehensive approach to eco-friendliness!

Explore Other Premium Rugs

In addition to the Green-Tec range, PetnPony stocks a range of premium rugs also included within the exchange, designed to cater to your horse's specific needs and provide unbeatable protection.

Take, for instance, the WeatherBeeta ComFiTec Ultra Cozi II Detach-A-Neck Medium. This top-of-the-line rug is packed with features like the liner system for versatility throughout the seasons, a WeatherBeeta Cozi guard for chest protection, a removable and waterproof snug fit for ultimate warmth, and a memory foam wither relief pad. Its 1680 denier ballistic nylon outer shell with Teflon coating ensures it's waterproof and breathable, while the 220g lofty polyfill offers premium comfort.

For your horse's pre and post-workout needs, the WeatherBeeta ComFiTec Premier Therapy-Tec turnout is the perfect choice. It's designed to increase muscle function, reduce the risk of injury, and aid in recovery. With features like ceramic lining, a cupped shoulder dart for freedom of movement, and quick clip front closure, it's a rug that prioritizes your horse's well-being.
