We all want to live more sustainably, but have you considered how much waste your pet supplies produce? Here are some ways to provide for your furry companion, without compromising your environmental values.
Buy eco-friendly products: While most pet products are made of plastic or contain plastic in some way, there are a few companies leading the charge for sustainability. Earth Rated sells vegetable-based, compostable waste bags for dogs. Wigglywoos creates eco-friendly, vegan options for leashes, collars and harnesses. Purina offers Yesterday’s News, a cat litter made from recycled paper. Another simple way to be more sustainable is to buy your pet’s food in bulk. It costs more upfront, but buying in bulk means fewer plastic bags and generally saves you money over time.
Make your own: A great way to cut down on plastic packaging from pet supplies is to make your own. You can make dog treats out of flour, peanut butter, bananas, and chicken stock, or shred old newspapers for your cat’s litter. If you’re feeling really ambitious, you can make your pet’s food from raw meat and eggs, bone meal, and vegetables. By doing your research and getting creative, you’ll feel confident that your dog or cat is getting the best meal for its nutritional needs.
IT’S A GOOD LIFE!!
