If you are a person who constantly tries to do the right thing when it comes to the environment, then maybe it’s time to take a look at your pets! Here are a few ideas to help you pooch get his green on!
- Feed organic pet food! With the recent recall of more than 100 brands of pet food (some considered ‘premium’), it might be time to take a closer look at what you’re feeding your pets. I recommend Only Natural Pet Store for an excellent selection of all natural and organic pet foods! For treats and other pet products - another great resource is Jake’s Doghouse - cool stuff for cool dogs!
- Use all natural or organic pet shampoo! Many people just use human shampoo on their dog. This is not a good idea, because many formulas contain chemicals and other stuff that can irritate a dog’s skin and make him itchy. It also doesn’t rinse out very well. I recommend Newman’s Own organic oatmeal dog shampoo! This stuff smells great, and rinses out much easier!
- Consider an alternative way to deal with poo! Composters.com has some great ideas for pet waste. This keeps it out of landfills, and also keeps it from polluting the environment! CLICK HERE
- Thinking of getting another pet? Adopt! There are SO many pets out there that need homes, INCLUDING puppies, kittens, and purebred pets! Save a life instead of purchasing from a breeder. Friends of Animals is a great resource, and also look at Broken Hearts Animal Rescue for some great single pets looking for love!
