You always bring reusable grocery bags to the store, never use plastic water bottles, and recycle whenever possible. But have you ever thought about ways to help your furry friend live a more eco-friendly lifestyle as well?
With Earth Day right around the corner, we’re sharing our tips for ways pet parents can reduce their pup’s carbon “paw” print.
Going Eco-Friendly with Your Dog
- Choose sustainable or reusable products whenever possible. Poop bags aren’t exactly something pet parents want to think about, but, unfortunately, they’re a major source of waste. And while you may not be able to avoid using them altogether, you can choose biodegradable bags that are meant for composting.
- Limit the number of plastic toys you buy or choose toys made from recyclable materials. When it comes time to reward your furry friend with a new toy, avoid ones that are made with a lot of plastic. Especially if your pup is rambunctious, there’s a good chance plastic toys will quickly end up in a landfill.
- Donate gently-used toys and blankets. All too often, perfectly good toys and blankets end up in the garbage because a pet doesn’t use them anymore. But when you donate your goods, you put a smile on a dog’s face and cut down on unnecessary waste.
- Avoid overfeeding your dog. First and foremost, overfeeding your dog can lead to a number of obesity-related health issues, so it should always be avoided. But there’s another issue that comes up when you feed your pup too often or give him too many treats — it negatively impacts the environment. The water, land, and food needed to produce animal-based dog foods quickly adds up if you’re feeding your pup several times a day.
