Did you know pets actually have a carbon “pawprint”? Pets are great companions and additions to families. In fact, studies have shown that pets help increase happiness, reduce stress, and encourage a healthier lifestyle. On the other hand, many pet parents don’t realize that pets can have a significant impact on the environment. This year, in honor of Earth Day, go green and celebrate with your pet!

Tips to go green with your pet

  1. Spay/neuter your pet

Pet shelters and rescues are filled with pets just waiting for their forever home, and there are countless homeless pets roaming the streets. Spaying or neutering your pet can help decrease the population of dogs and cats that don’t have homes by preventing unplanned litters. 

  1. Adopt a pet

Speaking of pets that need a home, consider adopting a pet from a shelter or rescue. By doing so, you’re saving 2 lives: the life of your pet and the open spot in the shelter that allows another pet to be brought in.

  1. Recycle canned food containers

If you feed your pet wet food, it likely comes in a can. The best thing you can do is to recycle the can from your pet’s canned food. A more ecological option for feeding your pet canned food is to buy the biggest can of food so less metal is used by splitting the meals from the larger cans. Also, buying in bulk will not only save your wallet, it will minimize packaging.

  1. Donate old towels and blankets to shelters and rescues

Shelters and rescues are always in need of supplies. Donate your pet’s gently used supplies like old towels, blankets, leashes, beds and toys.  

  1. Use eco-friendly cleaners and shampoo

Accidents happen and baths are inevitable. Switch over to environmentally friendly cleaners and shampoos. Not only are they better for the environment, but they generally contain ingredients that are less toxic to your pets. Plus, green products usually come in packaging that is recyclable or biodegradable.

  1. Clean up your pet’s poop

This cannot be stressed enough. One of the best things pet parents can do to help the environment is pick up their pet’s waste and dispose of it properly.  Both bacteria and intestinal parasites can be passed along in poop, which can harm the environment and even other pets that come into contact with it. Also, no one wants to step in dog poop when walking outside. Cleaning up after your pet reduces the chances of spreading parasites and disease as well as keeps your community clean.

You can go green with your cat’s waste too! Doggy poop bags aren’t just for dogs; you can use the bags to place your cat’s poop and clumped litter into! Try transitioning your cat to a biodegradable litter for a more eco-friendly option.

Poopy Packs are convenient, stylish, and best of all, degradable!

Poopy Packs are pet waste bags that are strong, leak-proof, environmentally-friendly, and stylish. Each uniquely designed bag is 100% degradable, so there’s no need to worry about the effects on the environment. 

These stylish waste bags fit in all standard-size dispensers and are perfect for walks, trips to the dog park, while traveling, or any other activity you and your dog do together.

Poopy Packs come in a package of 8 rolls. Each roll contains 20 bags that can be easily separated using the perforated edges.

  1. We have always picked up after our pet….. in fact, once my husband forgot to take along a bag and he went back to pick it up as soon as he got back home. We teach our grandchildren they have to pick up dog poo when they walk him. We also find poo from other dogs in our yard, not the dogs fault…. irresponsible dog ownership…. and those dogs are not small like ours….. if you know what I mean!🙄 We clean it up in our own yard….. just common sense… Right???

  2. I love that these bags are degradable! We always pick up after our dogs and having environmentally friendly bags is a bonus!
