Wait, are you saying that my dog contributes to the waste and pollution problem our planet faces?
Indeed, we are.
You might be surprised to learn that worldwide, dogs help to contribute almost half a billion pounds of waste every single day. To keep our planet healthy and safe, we can make eco-friendly pet consumer choices and create sustainable habits around caring for our dogs. This will help contribute to the reduction in waste and pollution dog ownership can produce.
Our domestic dogs are our best friends and partners in life. As wild dogs they would have had a minimal impact on the earth, like our own ancient ancestors. When dogs and humans first befriended each other, they would have shared what they hunted, and produced very little waste. In our current world, though, both dogs and humans produce a lot of waste. While we try to reduce, reuse, and recycle, when it comes to our dog’s poop, we have very few options.
Welcome to the first post of our new Pure Earth Pets blog. As part of our efforts to help pet owners – and humans in general – lead a more ecologically friendly lifestyle, this blog will be a fun and informative way of sharing information. You can expect posts about environmental topics, featured products, our favorite pet product manufacturers, and stories of our very own ambassadog Dover and our adventures with him.
