Not surprisingly, the same people who own dogs often care about the environment. Loving and caring for an animal demonstrates a certain respect for living things and a sensitivity to our earth and its precious resources. Dog owners who share nature with their pets are especially aware of their environment.
So how can you, as a dog owner, "shop green" and do your part to protect the environment? The website RetailMeNot has a helpful, detailed article called "The Ultimate Guide to Shopping Green for Your Pet" that shows you how to do just that. The article discusses the things that make a pet product green, how to find "green" pet food (with some great advice about food ingredients and additives), shopping for green playthings, choosing the right kind of pet beds, and more. It even has a handy green checklist for buying pet products.
