Marrying quality with sustainable and timeless design
We are committed to producing high quality, long-lasting goods in an environmentally friendly fashion, under the principle that purchasing once and correctly significantly reduces wastage.
Cambridge Road was born out of the belief that prioritising social and environmental responsibility would not hinder growth, but encourage it. Cambridge Road engages with New Zealand businesses to bring quality handmade products to the New Zealand dog lovers. We partner with ethical suppliers and collaborate with like-minded businesses to innovate, and to build a brand around old-fashioned quality with modern business ideas. We have a zero plastic packaging policy and use recycled materials wherever possible.
As advocates and supporters of animal rescue, we wanted to ensure we give back and we proudly support Chained Dog Rehoming and Rehabilitation New Zealand & Pound Hounds Rescue.
We are proud to present you with a range of products that truly represent the business we have created. Everything about the business is about respecting our past and protecting our future through applying lessons learnt and embracing new sustainable approaches.
Making the Product...
Our product range is the embodiment of our ethos, crafting long lasting, high quality goods for customers to enjoy for years to come. To do this we have sourced materials from ethical suppliers, employed traditional practises to craft products and used environmentally conscious processes throughout.
For us, each product is individual, each bed will be a furry little friend's nighttime buddy, each bag of treats will be a bundle of joy, each coat will allow little doggies to go for walks, even in the bad weather. Because for us, our products will be a part of your relationship with your dog and the only product that can truly reflect the importance of that relationship is one that is handcrafted with love.
Every part of our product development stage looks at where and who we can source our materials from and how that will effect both the customer experience and the social impact. When we look for suppliers, we look at how they engage with other business, customers and the New Zealand community.
One supply partnership we are particularly proud of is our relationship with Allpress coffee. We purchase their recycled sacks and in turn they donate the money we give them to various different in-school programs. One of which is educating young kids about the benefits of growing your own veggies.
Our Pledge to Animal Rescues
At the beginning of this project, it was clear that we were always going to partner with a charity. But the question of which one always lingered.
It was December 2019 that we found Chained Dog Rehabilitation and Rehoming™. After talking with their team and spending time learning about their values and missions, it quickly became clear that they were doing some pretty critical work. Most importantly their ethics aligned with ours. Since then we have been working closely with Chained Dog to provide support in whichever way we can.
We look forward to our continued partnership.
