When you go green, don’t leave your pets out of the equation. There are many things you can do to make pet ownership a more sustainable endeavor. Below we present three easy eco friendly pet tips.

1. Care – Take your pet to a vet that is socially responsible and administers natural medicine. I realize this isn’t within everyone’s reach, as this type of care is more expensive and also not readily available. But should you be one of the few lucky one’s who can afford it and has it nearby, do feel free to patronize this type of eco vet.
2. Food – Many independent pet food manufacturers now offer organic options and many also offer vegetarian pet food. Some brand names also offer these newer more eco types of pet foods. Give your favorite brand a try first.
3. Accessories – Find collars, bedding, clothing, litter, harnesses, carriers, etc that are made using reclaimed or sustainable materials.
