Going green has gone to the dogs (and cats)! It’s a fact that being environmentally friendly not only helps you but it also helps our four-legged friends. If keeping your home filled with sustainable items for yourself isn’t enough and you want to find the best eco-friendly pet products out there, we’ve got you covered.
Here are our top 5 picks for green pets
Earth Dog Hemp
Made from the finest quality hemp, Earth Dog offers collars, leashes and harnesses that are ultra-durable and even toys, tags, beds, blankets and healing salves. Earth Dog products are all made in the eco-conscious USA and feature the amazing versatility of hemp.
The makers of these biodegradable bags have been making poop scooping eco-friendly since 2003. Designed with an easy-to-use roll and a leash attachment dispenser, PoopBags won the Pet Business Industry Recognition Award for 2014 (for the second year in a row). Made from corn, vegetables and starches in the USA.
World’s Best Cat Litter
Need some high performance litter that you can flush or even dump into your garden? They don’t call it the Worlds Best for nothing… This litter is made from whole-kernel corn and offers outstanding odor control and clumping. Pick it up in a variety of natural scents including lavender. This awesome company also helps shelter cats in need through a program called GiveLitter- they’ve already donated 346,651 pounds and counting!
Your pet’s products can contaminate their skin, your home and our environment. Switch over to these natural and organic pet grooming products and reduce those toxins! Organic Oscar carries an entire line of non-toxic options including shampoos & conditioners, pet wipes and holistic remedies. This line is a great option for new puppies.
If you haven’t heard of this stuff yet, I’m glad to tell you that DE is a natural way to kill insects in your home or garden and on your pets! Not only does Diatomaceous Earth act as a non-toxic flea and tick control option it’s also a great natural alternative to wormers. Just mix this food-grade powder in with your pet’s food to rid them of intestinal parasites.
And one for good luck!
