Since 1970, we have celebrated Earth Day by bringing attention to the environmental issues we all face. Great strides have taken place but there is so much more that we can all do to make a difference.
Here are 5 Easy Ways to celebrate Earth Day with your dog:
It is so easy to rinse out your dog or cat food cans for recycling. Always use the recycle bin to throw away empty pet food bags, treat boxes, toy tags, dog shampoo bottles and delivery boxes. Check for the recycle label on products that you purchase.
4. Reuse old tees to make toys.
This is a fun craft project that is super easy. All you have to do is cut an old tee shirt into strips that you braid and tie a knot on each end. I've made several but the one pictured above is from Talia’s Toys in our post, Dog Toys & Treats. It doesn't take much work to turn old tires and furniture into dog beds or outdoor fun. Follow me on Pinterest for great D.I.Y. dog crafts.
3. Scoop your dog’s poop.
There is no excuse not to pick up after your dog. The environmental impact is significant. Read more about it on Pick Up the Poop ~ No More Excuses. Make sure that you are using environmentally-friendly poop bags like Sooty Paw Paw. They don’t even use a plastic insert in their rolls!
2. Use all-natural products.
As an ambassador of Dr. Harvey’s, we proudly use their all-natural, organic, fresh, and holistic products. Bentley and Pierre love their Dr. Harvey's food, treats, and supplements. The dogs don’t care that the things that go in and on their bodies are earth-friendly, but I do. *Save 10% on Dr. Harvey’s products with code BFTB 531 AND enter our fabulous Spring Into Health giveaway!
1. Enjoy a walk in nature to celebrate Earth Day 2016.
Get outside in the fresh air and take a walk with your dog. There is always beauty in our day no matter where we live. The fresh air and walking will do you and your best friend a world of good this Earth Day.
