The responsible and environmentally aware individual continually tries to lead a low impact life. Leading a low impact lifestyle can also call for eco friendly pet products and ideas so that your pooch or feline or other reptilian being will have as little an environmental impact as possible.
This is particularly the case considering the fact that humans take animals from their natural habitat (where they were causing no environmental impact) for their own amusement and agendas. Having a pet means that an animal lives an artificial life that mimics human life and also has an ecological impact that is significantly greater than that of an animal in its natural habitat.
The first thing a person can do is to adopt a pet from a shelter or otherwise; rather than purchase a specifically bred breed, because this is a pet choice that is more humane and socially responsible. In addition to this, the following eco-friendly pet products may prove useful:
1. Organic Bedding and Accessories
The bedding that you use for your pooch or your cat ideally should be made from organic materials so that you know that making it caused the least amount of ecological damage to the environment in terms of pesticides, chemical fertilizers and so on. Similarly leashes, collars and so on can also be made from recycled material or organic materials. Organic is the way to go in terms of dog coats or cat accessories as well.
2. Biodegradable Poop Bags
These can help make that morning constitutional a little bit better. You can rest assured that the doggie doo is not adding to the planet’s plastic waste that will add to landfills and to the garbage heaps.
3. Organic Pet Food, Dog Treats, Etc.
Dog treats made from organic materials, dog biscuits made by vegan products could take some time to get used to, but these could be some of the other environmentally responsible choices that can be made.
4. Eco Friendly Pet Products for Grooming
As we not consciously reach for organic shampoo and other personal care as well as cleaning products, the same organic and chemical free choices can be made for pets. Organic dog and other pet grooming products can ensure that you are pouring as few chemicals down the drain as possible and surrounding yourself and your pet with as few toxins as possible.
