Are you an eco-friendly pet parent?
Here we are in May already, this year is flying by. But have you considered if you are an eco-friendly pet parent? As you all start to venture further afield as lockdowns are hopefully eased for the last time. We are inevitably going to increase our carbon footprint. I don’t know about you, but I have been pretty stationary for the best part of last year. This has got me thinking about my carbon footprint and in turn, the carbon footprint left behind by not just myself but also Libby, my black labrador.
There are so many small changes we could be making to our own lives to be more environmentally friendly. Including when we are caring for our pets. Just changing the products we use and the small choices we make can have a huge impact on wildlife and the environment as a whole.
Eco-friendly Poop Bags
For instance, when it comes to reducing the impact of your dog’s poop, there are some ways you can help. An eco-friendly or biodegradable poop bag is a great way to go. The Adios Poop Bag range is a great choice for any pet parent. These bags are 100% home compostable and biodegradable. They are made solely from cornstarch and have zero plastic and waste footprint. To me, this sounds like a great idea, and for many, you might think what good can a poop bag do. But, in truth, when you think about how many times your dog goes for a number 2 each day. The amount of poop bags adds up rather quickly when you multiply that across the year or even their lifetime.
Eco-friendly Dog Beds
If you are in the market for a new dog bed. This again could be something you may consider instead of buying a non-eco alternative you could view the Eco-Range by Scruffs. The fabric is woven using a yarn produced from re-engineered PET (polyethylene terephthalate). Recycled plastic bottles provide the PET polymer material, reducing the burden on our landfills and natural resources. The same PET technology is used to produce a 100% recycled green-fibre fill. This is just another example of a brand realising the need to offer an eco-friendly range for the eco-conscious pet parent.
It’s not just dog brands that are bringing in new eco-friendly products. Recently Pillow Wad, which specialise in 100% natural pet feeds and bedding has released their BioWrap which is a completely biodegradable wrapping. That can be disposed of in your home compost or in your food caddy and is made entirely from renewable resources.
