what is econess?

Long before "environmentally conscious" and "eco-friendly" became catch phrases, Van Ness has been an industry leader in the design and manufacture of eco-aware products. In 1983, Van Ness debuted a liner made from 80% recycled content and we have not looked back.

econess represents our commitment to you and your pet to manufacture and design products that provide high value, are practical, durable and safe for your pet as well as for the environment.

econess is a promise to you, your pet and the earth. Every Van Ness econess product meets or exceeds quality standards and is made entirely, or in part, from either recycled, organic or environmentally friendly plant based materials.
