Are You An Environmentally Aware Pet Owner?

Next to new parents, pet owners are most likely to spend copious amounts of money on spoiling their ‘babies,” and there certainly is a lot of accessories available to help them do it! Cat and dog owners can pick up fancy collars, tailor made shirts and sweaters, Halloween costumes, booties, perfume, and even heated pet beds. You name it; it’s probably out there waiting for you to buy it! One of the most important accessories that you can ever purchase for your pet - dogs in particular- are pet waste bags. All pet owners know how important it is to clean up after their pet, but have you ever considered how important it is to try to be as environmentally friendly as possible while you’re cleaning up after them?

Think about how many dog waste bags you go through in an average month. If you’re using grocery bags or a cheap throw away type of bag, think about how much plastic ends up in landfills every year just from one single dog. It’s actually quite astounding.

Thankfully, there are products out there that let dog owners keep their yards and neighborhoods clean while still managing to be earth and landfill aware. Biodegradable pet waste bags are an excellent option for animal owners who still want to try to be environmentally friendly. They cost just pennies more, can be purchased in bulk, and come in a ton of different great patterns and colors so you and your dog can do your part while still having a bit of fun with it. If your local pet store doesn’t carry biodegradable pet or dog waste bags, ask them to. Most pet stores are more than happy to carry alternative products if they know that they have customers that want to purchase them.

You can still get the goofy sweaters and bright leashes and fun bows, but adding the biodegradable pet waste bags to your shopping list means that you can feel good about your environmental choices while still spoiling your furry friend.

You're so right.Every pet owner must attend a seminar regarding Environmental awareness to make them educate on hazardous effect of their pet waste bag.
Every owner must have concern in our environment.

I don't know why I never thought of that before! I hate using plastic bags!
