5 Ways To Go Green With Your Pets On Earth Day

Posted on Apr 22, 2015 , 0 comments

It’s Earth Day today! Although here at Healthy Spot we like to think that everyday is Earth Day which is why we make sure out shelves are stocked with eco-friendly products whenever possible. Here are our favorite ways to make being a pet parent a little greener this Earth Day. Toys, toys, toys! We try to find not just the most durable toys (a tall task, indeed) but also ones that are environmentally conscious. Toys from West Paw Design are some of our favorites. Besides being super cute and tough their toys are made with material such as sustainable hemp and recycled plastics. They’re also B Corp certified! You’ll also find Simply Fido on our shelves who make all their toys with organic cotton and low eco impact dyes which helps keep harmful chemicals out of our air, water, soil and bodies. Poop bags Sure, it’s just to hold poop but not all poop bags are created equal. California already has a problem when it comes to plastic bags which is why a smarter poop bag that’s eco-friendly is a better poop bag. The Original PoopBags have a line that’s ASTM 6400 Certified which means they’re made from renewable resources such as corn, vegetable oils and starches which makes them compostable for all you urban farmers out there. Metro Paws Poop Packs makes bio-degradable bags and also buy carbon offsets from Terra Pass to allow their servers and shipping to remain carbon neutral. Sleep easy and green Our Healthy Spot Donut beds and Jax & Bones beds are stuffed with SustainaFill which not only makes them super comfy but also helps the Earth. SustainaFill is made from recycled soda bottles which also makes them hypo-allergenic and easily washable. Mind, body and BOWL! Everything Beco Pets makes have either recycled or sustainable materials, sometimes both. One of our favorite Beco products are their Beco Bowls which are completely sustainable and biodegradable when finished. Their Beco Bowls are made with natural bamboo resin which is BPA free, durable, and dishwasher safe! Green is the new black How do you have your pup look good and be eco-friendly on Earth Day? Dress them up in Eco-Pup! Their line of pet clothing are 100% eco-friendly by using certified organic, reclaimed and recycled fabrics. The company also takes their eco-friendly mindset into the office by reusing and recycling whenever possible while limiting the amount of paper and waste. From the runway to the dog park, your pup will not only look good but make a environmentally friendly statement while the puparazzi snaps away.
