In recent years, we have all heard a lot about greening up, but did you know that you can take steps and go green with your dog?
Here are a few ways…
- Y’all: Scoop That Poop. While regular plastic bags can immortalize the number 2 of your dog for hundreds of years in a landfill, using is a great way to be green with our dogs when they clean up in public. However, when cleaning the yard, skip all bags and use a pooper scooper to gather all those land mines in a bigger garbage bag.
- Toys fabricated from recycled materials. Numerous toy manufacturers now offer great dog toys made from recycled materials. You should not have any problems finding great ones for your dog that is environmentally-friendly: in many cases, the packaging is even green! Although these are excellent alternatives, remember that the ultimate green dog toy is the good old fashioned stick!
- Beds From Recycled Materials. In addition to remade dog toys, you can also find pet beds filled with Eco-friendly green fillers. These beds are not only pretty, but they are also filled with a material called IntelliLoft, which is made from recycled plastic bottles. Another option is to use your old worn-out dog bed by re-using a dog bed duvet. They are also safe with old t-shirts, towels and other items from all around the house.
- Eco-Friendly Dog Shampoos. Should you bathe your dog, select carefully your shampoo. Ideally, you should use a green shampoo that contains natural ingredients and contains nothing that can harm the environment. It’s also a good idea to reduce how often you wash your dog: he does not need frequent bathing and you can save water by washing him less.
