Unlike the other furry friends in my building, I have decided to abstain from my typical St. Patrick’s Day shenanigans this year. Yes, you heard right, this party pug isn’t going to be caught shaking her shamrocks till 2 in the morning like last year. As part of my New Year’s resolution of getting more R&R, I am staying in and celebrating a little differently (AKA snacking on lots of shamrock treats and watching Irish jig videos on YouTube).
Aside from nomming on tasty treats and watching some pawsome videos, I plan on using my down time at home to come up with more ways that my pawrents and I can be environmentally conscious. Although we do live a pretty eco-friendly lifestyle, there are so many ways one can make a pawsitive difference in the health of our planet, which is why I never stop searching for cool tips and tricks to be more environmentally friendly.
Since everyone will be covered from head to toe in green this weekend, I wanted to share some tips on how you can live a greener lifestyle every day. No, I don’t mean putting on a light-up shamrock headband; I am talking about ways of bettering the environment! That’s right people. I’m here to drop some mad info on how you and your furry friend can be more environmentally friendly.
Check out these 5 easy ways you and your furry friend can live a greener lifestyle:
1. Poop Bags
Don’t get caught empty handed when your furry friend needs a bathroom break. These eco-friendly poop bags from Earth rated fit pawfectly in any pocket, not to mention that you can also purchase a nifty pod to carry them in and attach conveniently to your pup's leash!
2. Make Your Own Dog Treats
Although I’m known to never turn down a treat anywhere I go, nothing tastes better than something made at home. Instead of tossing out your leftovers, you can get your creativity on and put together a tasty dog-friendly meal for your furry friend.
3. Grooming Foam (Waterless Shampoo)
My pawrents got lucky having a pup like me who loves being pampered and cleaned in a nice bath. Unfortunately, most dogs would rather run for the hills when they hear the "B" word. Earth Bath Hypo-Allergenic Grooming Foam takes the scariness out of a typical water bath while still leaving your furry friend smelling and looking their best!
4. Stain and Odor Remover
Fight nature with nature the next time your furry friend leaves a mess for you to clean up. Made from wholesome and biodegradable ingredients, this Earth Friendly Product will be a sure and safe way to keep your house feeling clean and fresh.
5. Mutt Hatter Plush Toy Set
As usual, I saved the best for last. Our new Mutt Hatter Collection features five fun hat-themed toys that are stuffed with our eco-friendly PlanetFill® filler made from 100% post-consumer certified-safe recycled plastic bottles. They are also washer and dryer safe, so no need to toss them out if they get dirty! After a good wash they will be ready for the next round of play time.
