What does going green mean to you and your pet? It could mean a lovely walk in the woods, but we're thinking of another meaning. We're thinking about recycling.
No matter where you stand on the global warming debate, we can all agree that some things are worth doing just because they're the right thing to do. None of us want to be knee deep in plastic bottles or litter. We dispose of these things responsibly because it's what's best for all of us. How about putting some of that litter to good use?
First, beds. These are made from recycled plastic soda bottles. They're available in sizes XS to XL at West Paw Design.
These colorful sleep mats are also made from recycled plastic bottles. There's no shortage of bottles, we see them everywhere, so why not put them to good use? They're found at Pristine Planet.
If you're like me, you love buying collars for you dog. Each of mine has a couple and I'm always seeing new ones that I like. If you're looking for a new collar, think about getting one made from recycled or environmentally friendly materials. The ones above are made from 100% recycled materials and can be found at Green Nest.
Earth friendly doesn't have to mean dull or ugly. These collars are from Cycle Dog and are made from reclaimed bike tubes.
There are pretty leads to match.
At JeffersPet, one of my favorite online pet supply stores, you cam find these collars made from hemp. Don't they have a nice look for winter?
These are some of my favorites. Again, they're made from recycled plastic bottles and are from Westminster Pet Products. They also have matching leashes.
We're trying to practice what we preach. Here Samba wears her red bandana print collar. It's made by Westminster, but I bought it from Jeffers Pet. I think it looks great with her black curls and it's nice and soft against her skin.
Do you use Earth friendly pet products? What are they and where can we find them?
