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.

Results of a scientific field study, led by Univ. of Exeter's Dr. Robbie MacDonald, were published in the journal Current Biology this week."Fitting Birdsbesafe collar covers reduced the numbers of birds captured and brought home by 42% but had no discernible effect on mammals."
And, the research paper characterized it: "Birdsbesafe is a colorful collar cover that works as a visual warning, increasing the visibility of cats to potential prey animals with color vision. It exhibited pronounced effectiveness in reducing killing of birds, and more generally, prey with good color vision, including herpetofauna."

As we enter the holiday season, in 2020, it is remarkable how very unique 2020 has been around the globe. What remained the same, for us at Birdsbesafe company, was our devotion to helping cat owners save birds!

We really enjoy hearing from you about your successes with Birdsbesafe® collar covers on your cats protecting birds in your yards. Here's just a sampling of some recent emails that we have received! We appreciate every one of them.
Thanks for caring about cats and birds.
"We love your product, it’s amazingly effective…not a single caught bird since we’ve started using the collar covers. Wish all cat owners who let their cats outside knew about these."
