- Use biodegradable poop bags made out of organic or recyclable material; your dog will be on his way to going green.
- Old blankets and sheets may seem like junk, but if you donate them to your local shelter, they are warm beds and comfort for lonely pets.
- Instead of driving to the dog park, how about rollerblading, biking or just walking instead? It’s more exercise and time for you and your dog to spend together, and it’s not using fossil fuels or spewing greenhouse gases into the air.
- Consider a natural, holistic, or eco-friendly diet. Some dog foods and treats on the market use all-natural, “green-footprint” ingredients.
- Many grooming centers and kennels are now offering dogs aromatherapy and all-natural botanical oils so that our best friends can also enjoy an eco-friendly and relaxing day at the spa.
- Whether eco-friendly, simple or extravagant, continue to learn about and implement practices that allow your pets to thrive in a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.
**Always consult your veterinarian before making any drastic changes in your pet’s diet, care or grooming practices.
