Looking to make your home a little more eco-friendly? Don’t forget about your pets! Although it’s easy to overlook, our furry friends have a big impact on how green our lifestyles are. Here are a few tips to make your pet care more eco-conscious this summer.
Eco-Friendly Pet Care Tips:
- Adopt Your Pet – If you are thinking of adding a new furry friend to your family, consider adoption from a shelter. There are many homeless animals without families across the country.
- Spay or Neuter Your Pet – Spaying and neutering is one of the best ways to keep feral animals – especially cats – off of the street. Not only will this help the surrounding environment, but it will also help keep your pet healthy. Spayed and neutered pets tend to be less aggressive and live longer, healthier lives.
- Make Your Own DIY Pet Treats – Instead of spending money buying new treats, make your own! This helps you cut down on packaging and homemade treats are healthier for your pet, too.
- Choose Eco-Friendly Pet Toys –There are many pet toys made from recycled and organic materials. Your pets can even enjoy simple toys like an old ball from the garage or a paper towel roll.
