"When you consider the carbon ‘pawprint’ of your pet, it also makes you think about some of the ways our own actions are affecting the environment," says Tracie Hotchner, author and host of NPR's Gracie-Award-winning show Cat Chat on Sirius Radio. "I encourage pet parents to take this opportunity to make changes in their behaviors and purchases to help take all of us into a new era of environmental responsibility."
We're doing it more and more, especially here in the Bay area. Go green with your pets also and it's getting easier and easier with all the new products available. Check out these beds and toys from Westpaw Design, or these pee pads from Simple Solution made out of 85% recycled materials, or if you really want to splurge you can buy a sustainable dog house from Sustainable Pet. Little decisions make a big difference from day to day.
