If you happen to see some green or organically made stuff for your pet, don’t be a bit surprised. A lot of it stems from the fact that even the pets are now targets for green living and it all starts from accessories all the way down to the food that they digest. Just when you think that people could care less for their pets, there are a lot of people out there who value them in as much as they value their own lives.
Some say that they are simply helping out the environment and contributing towards the welfare of the world. Commendable as it may, we all know for a fact that some people have their priorities and normally, contributions come towards what the basic necessities are in living properly today.
Earthdoggy.com is one of at least a dozen online retailers specializing in environmentally friendly pet products. The store carries everything from natural peanut butter-flavoured dog cookies to eco-friendly plush squeaky toys. Their top seller is a $120 dog bed made from recycled materials and printed with low-impact dyes, and a $75 organic cotton quilt designed to protect car seats from pet hair is so popular it’s out of stock.
Bodenstein says she sells environmentally friendly accessories for all facets of a pet’s life, from snout to tail – even biodegradable plastic baggies for picking up dog poop.
“A green product helps the planet no matter what it is,” Bodenstein said. “If you’re going to buy a collar or a dog bed anyway, why not pick an earth-friendly one?”
