Earth Day is a day to celebrate our planet and remind ourselves that we must all work together to keep it clean and healthy, today and every day. There are many ways to help the environment, from using reusable shopping bags to riding your bike to work instead of driving.
Environmental protection and sustainability should be rooted in every aspect of our lives, including how we care for our pups! To celebrate Earth Day, here are some of our favorite eco-friendly dog products that are good for the Earth and for your pups.
Wood Chuck with Recycle Ball from Planet Dog
For those of you who have a ball-obsessed pup, this is the perfect product. Made with sustainable bamboo and reused cork scraps, this ball-tossing device will keep your dog - and our planet - happy for years! It even includes the Recycle Ball with your dog’s new motto - “reduce, reuse, rewoof”.
Pet Tent from Olive
Not only are all of Olive's products environmentally friendly, but Olive itself strives for zero waste. All orders ship in low-impact packaging, from recycled boxes to biodegradable packing peanuts. Olive also seeks out partners and vendors who share these same goals and values. This stylish pet tent is handmade from American-made waxed cotton canvas - and it’s trendy too!
Honest Clean Organic Dog Shampoo from Honest Pet Products
Honest Pet Products uses materials in their most natural form to promote sustainability and carbon footprint reduction. We love this vegan shampoo for dogs, which is made without artificial foaming agents, synthetic preservatives or dyes. The ingredients include organic coconut, olive and jojoba oils, organic lavender oil and organic aloe vera - which sounds so good, we want to use it on ourselves!
Lounge Bed from Healthy Spot
This snooze-worthy bed is filled with Sustainafill™, a US-made, eco-friendly, hypo-allergenic green fiber. Healthy Spot is committed to providing pet owners with a full range of wholesome, organic food lines as well as a wide selection of safe and eco-friendly toys, treats, training tools, grooming products, and services. Even better, Healthy Spot has a partnership with Wags and Walks that includes discounts on grooming and daycare for our foster dogs and discounted rates on first time grooming and retail for recent adopters.
Dog Treat Canister from Earth Doggy
These chic storage canisters by Harry Barker are made from powder-coated recycled steel. Earth Doggy is a great website that compiles their favorite eco-friendly dog products, dog clothes, and organic and all-natural dog food that are consistent with the philosophy that a healthy dog and a healthy planet go hand in hand.
Whole Grain Dog Food from The Honest Kitchen
This minimally-processed, 100% human grade food is created from non-GMO produce and organic seeds and grains. Better yet, the company is dedicated to reducing their environmental paw print by promising green ingredients, green production, green packaging and green business.
bioDOGradable Dog Waste Bags from Amazon
Every dog owner knows that you pick up a lot of poop throughout your pup's life - it's just part of the job as a doggy parent - but did you know you can help the environment by doing so? These waste bags are made from a bioplastic compound containing cereal flour and biodegradable substances. They are compostable, GMO-free and perfect for your pooch!
In addition to these fun and practical products, there are many other ways you can get involved in Earth Day with your pup, like taking them to the park to plant a tree or walking along the beach to pick up trash. These small efforts can help make our planet and our homes safer, cleaner and greener for us - and our pups - for years to come!
