Sweet Meats: Protein Plushy Goodness

We're not really sure why having a pork chop on your sofa is entertaining, but we really think it is. Especially when they're the soft plushy kind that are handmade with love and care. Did we mention they're reasonably priced? Because they totally are!

Sweet Meats is based out of San Francisco and is run by Lauren Venell. Everything is made in small runs and their commitment to responsibility is just outstanding. Here's a bit of what they have to say:

We at Sweet Meats take environmental and social responsibility in business very seriously. All Sweet Meats are made from 100% recycled, super cuddly fleece, and colored with recycled dye materials. In addition, 100% of our gift wrapping and packing materials are both recyclable and made from recycled materials. Our sewing partners have the highest internationally certified working conditions and product quality standards on the planet. To help us with our shipping needs, we work closely with a local non-profit company that provides employment for adults with disabilities.

Now if that doesn't make you want a fluffy pillow shaped like a piece of meat, we're not sure what will. Her pillows come in two sizes, "individual" and "family-sized." Prices start at just $17.99 and who can't get behind that? Pick up your favorite cut below (did we mention they come wrapped like deli meats?
