We're proud of having a great product that was invented in Vermont, by company owner, Nancy Brennan, and is now helping to save birds worldwide. The current crop of Birdsbesafe® collar covers are an especially nice array of fabric patterns, we think. And... they're sewn in the United States. Here is a little more information on what that means to us.
We run our company with our "green values" and sustainable business ethics. We're in Vermont. If you throw a stone in our little state, you will hit another "green business" that is trying to do the right things for the environment. Some of the companies are household names, and many gather together under the Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility, a group we like a lot.
We make a songbird-saving product, so we have a green product right there. We're in business to do bird conservation. Ideal!
We have a great manufacturing partner in the United States who sews for us. The have a cooperative structure, with some members being owners. We're lucky to work with them. The quality is awesome, and we are supporting a great group of people--and so are you. Thank you for helping to save birds and helping to keep U.S. sewing shops working.

A news story on All Things Considered on NPR Radio by Lauren Sommer discusses the toll on wildlife by free-roaming cats, and then discusses the Birdsbesafe® cat collar cover with Dr. Willson, whose field study (published in 2015) validated our claims. Birdsbesafe cat collar covers are, indeed, able to highly reduce the number of birds caught by cats. Enjoy the radio story here.

Would you dress up your cat in brightly colored "ruff" to save the lives of backyard birds? It was an open question, when I started my company to popularize my own bird-saving invention in 2009.
Eleven years later, we owe all our customers a debt of gratitude for providing a resounding "Yes" to that question. You do care about birds, and you will use our colorful cat accessory to save birds from your cat. Thank you!
