Our pets are a part of our family, and if we care about climate change issues, we should care for them in an eco-conscious way. That means non-toxic grooming products, biodegradable waste bags and non-clay cat litter, accessories made from recycled materials, and products made from sustainable materials.
There are a number of pet foods and treats on the market today that focus on health and sustainability. Look for food that is human-grade and USDA certified organic. Companies like Newman’s Own, Freshpet, Only Natural Pet, and Castor & Pollux Organix offer products that provide nutrition to your pet while caring for the planet. It is always important to check with your veterinarian before changing your pet’s diet.
Many birds, such as parakeets, are very sociable and require a lot of stimulation. To provide them with fun while being eco-conscious, choose a toy that is environmentally friendly, made from sustainable materials, and will provide entertainment for your bird.
