Portland, ME (June 12, 2013) – Planet Dog and Sea Bags are excited to announce a new partnership that is offering unique and eco-friendly products for dog lovers and their canine companions. The socially responsible and globally recognized Maine companies have joined forces to make Planet Dog/Sea Bags on the go Bowls, Feedbags and Snack Sacks in the heart of Portland, Maine’s working waterfront.

The new Planet Dog/Sea Bags collection offers dog lovers a convenient and stylish way to keep pups fed, hydrated and supplied with treats. The extraordinarily light, collapsible, rollable, stuffable and very packable waterproof products were designed with easy transport and storage in mind.

Each Planet Dog/Sea Bags on the go product features a unique and eye-catching design thanks to the use of recycled sails that Sea Bags sources from all around the world. They are available to purchase at the Planet Dog Company Store in Portland, Maine and the Sea Bags Store in Freeport, Maine.

Modeled after a paddling dry bag, the Planet Dog/Sea Bags on the go Feedbag keeps up to 30 cups of kibble fresh and handy. The feather-light Planet Dog/Sea Bags on the go Bowl gives dogs a means to feed and quench their thirst no matter where they are. It pops open for easy access, sits flat for stability and is available in two sizes (small holds 1.5 quarts and large 2.25 quarts). It fits easily into backpacks, other Sea Bags and glove compartments.

The Planet Dog/Sea Bags on the go Snack Sack, a dog trainer’s best friend, was inspired by the nifty chalk bags carried by rock climbers. It features a drawstring closure with a metal clip and belt loop that can be easily attached to the waist, making it perfect for positive training anywhere.

“We are thrilled to partner with another like-minded Maine company to offer dog lovers unique, eco-friendly and socially responsible products that are made locally,” says Kristen Smith, Planet Dog’s Brand Manager. “We are both dedicated to making an impact locally and globally and the success of our useful, innovative and award-winning green products has enabled us both to give back,” adds Smith.

Planet Dog, the socially responsible pet industry leader, is proud to donate 2% of every purchase to the Planet Dog Foundation (PDF) to support canine service organizations across the country to enable dogs to help people in need.

"The collaboration with Planet Dog is a great opportunity for us to partner with another woman-owned, Maine based company,” says Beth Shissler, President of Sea Bags. “I admire Planet Dog's commitment to source more products locally and couldn't be happier to work with them. This project has given us an opportunity to bring our recycled sail products and nautical style to dog lovers around the world,” adds Shissler.

Both Planet Dog and Sea Bags trademarks are registered throughout the world, and the quality and craftsmanship of their eco-friendly products is unparalleled to any other dog or sail product. Both Maine companies have been recognized for their product design, and manufacturing as well as their philanthropic efforts and progressive family-friendly work environments.
