Have you ever thought about your pet living a green life as well? Green living is not only for humans, you know. You can actually show love to your pet while helping the earth at the same time! Here are some ideas which are easy to implement.
Be a responsible dog owner – scoop up that poop!
Signs to this effect are scattered all over the place. After all, who likes stepping on dog excrement? More than that, though, waste left around can spread bacteria and even leak to the ground water, especially if you walk your dog in the park. Be extra diligent in cleaning up after your mutt!
Consider biodegradable cat litter.
The clay-based dumping litters that are popular nowadays can be convenient BUT the material used in them is usually from strip mines: HARMFUL to the environment. More so, the clay does not decompose easily. Not convinced yet? Well, the average cat litter box contains silica dust which is carcinogenic. Would you want this dust to be inhaled by your precious feline pet?
Be more discriminatory when buying pet food.
Choose the healthy kind, the kind which makes use of natural meat. Read the labels and try to purchase pet food that was produced in a sustainable manner. Even better, why not consider making your own pet food? If you think that this route is more expensive, consider the fact that healthier pet food translates to a healthier pet, which in turns means fewer visits to the vet –fewer expenses!
