Introducing Kompact9 Eco-Friendly Dog Ball Launcher

Kompact9 is the world's only retractable dog ball launcher made from plant-based or recycled plastics - and it is now available through Hiro + WolfManufactured in the UK, the Kompact9 has a unique telescopic design which reduces the launcher to the length of a school ruler when retracted, and combined with its drawstring cover make it both portable and hygienic, whilst keeping your hands and pockets mess free.



Operations Director & Aerospace Engineer Alex Richardson says “we were really fed up with lugging a long and cumbersome ball thrower about and dealing with more than a little dog slobber every time we left the park. The inconvenience of carrying it around drove us nuts and we felt that there had to be a better way.”



Environmentally engineered from 100% recycled plastic off-cuts, the Kompact9 ball launcher is manufactured in Devon using parts produced from recycled plastic pellets. But the green credentials don’t stop there – the drawstring hygiene cover is also made exclusively from recycled plastic bottles and the Kompact9 comes packaged in a recycled cardboard box. 



Karen Richardson-Scarfe, Managing Director says “when we embarked on our journey to revolutionise and reengineer the dog ball launcher, for us it was fundamental that the business should not negatively impact the environment and our product should be ethically made. Our supply chain has been devised to minimise our carbon footprint and recycle water during the manufacturing phase. We’ve even made sure that the label sealing the packaging is recycled which, believe it or not, was the hardest part to source.”
