We’re getting ready for a Christmas Eve puppy to arrive, so it’s time to look into reducing our “carbon pawprint.” Green animal lovers suggest several ways to regularly care for your pets using eco-friendly practices. You can use biodegradable bags for collecting pet waste, feed pets organic food, reduce the amount of containers used, or recycle pet food bags and containers. It’s just as important to think about the materials used to produce the products they regularly come in contact with as it is for humans. I was shocked (but ultimately not surprised) to find out that regular studies show toxins in pets to be much higher than people.
Since I’m new to this, but would love to learn more, I’m asking you to be the expert! Do you know a great shop for organic pet toys or concentrated puppy shampoo? Maybe you’ve perfected the recipe for homemade dog food. Is there a true, no-mess way to scoop poop? If you’ve got an eco-friendly tip that’s also economically friendly, I’d love to hear it! Please post your suggestions in the comments.
