When shopping for pet supplies, look for products that are made from sustainable or recycled materials. This can include everything from biodegradable poop bags to eco-friendly cat litter. Not only are these products better for the planet, but they can also be safer for your pets.

4. Support sustainable pet food

Choosing sustainably sourced pet food can make a big difference in reducing your pet's carbon pawprint. Look for brands that use ingredients that are locally sourced, ethically raised, and packaged in eco-friendly materials.

5. Use ECO-FRIENDLY shampoos and cleaning products

Using eco-friendly dog shampoos and cleaning products is a simple and effective way to make a positive impact on the planet. These products are made with natural, non-toxic ingredients that are safer for your pet and the environment, and often come in recyclable or biodegradable packaging. Consider eco-friendly options next time you’re shopping for dog shampoo or cleaning products.

Earth Day activities to enjoy with your furry friend

1. Clean up your local park

Grab a reusable bag and some gloves and head out to your local park or hiking trail for a litter clean-up. Not only will you be doing a good deed for the environment, but your pet will also enjoy the adventure and fresh air.

2. Plant a tree or garden

Planting a tree or starting a garden is a great way to celebrate Earth Day with your pet. Your pet can help dig the hole or assist in planting seeds while you enjoy some quality time together outdoors.

3. Take a hike

Hiking is a great way to explore nature and get some exercise with your pet. Find a local trail or park and spend the day exploring the great outdoors with your furry friend.

4. Attend a pet-friendly Earth Day event

Many cities and organizations host pet-friendly Earth Day events, like clean-up efforts or educational activities. Check out local listings and attend an event with your furry friend to learn more about how you can make a difference.

5. Donating gently used pet supplies

Instead of throwing away old pet supplies, consider donating them to a local shelter or rescue organization. This can provide much-needed resources to animals in need and reduce the amount of waste generated by your pet care routine.

6. Properly disposing of pet waste

When you're out with your pet, be sure to dispose of their waste properly. This means using biodegradable poop bags and disposing of them in a trash can, not leaving waste on the ground. By doing so, you can help prevent contamination of water sources and keep our parks and trails clean.
