Recycling Poop??C'mon......

I have a great friend who has spent the better part of her life teaching us how to recycle what comes out of the rear end of our pets, and I would also like to give her credit for teaching me a few neat tricks. Consider the following:

When you walk your dog, bring a biodegradable bag to carry dog waste.

When you shop for dog food and treats look for items packaged in paper, aluminum or recyclable plastic, rather than foils.

Choose dog toys, beds and clothing made with recycled or sustainable materials, such as hemp, recycled cotton filler, or fleece made from recycled plastic bottles.

Pay attention to packaging and stay away from non-recyclable plastics and over-packaged items.

Seek out companies that make a public commitment to the environment by recycling packaging materials and waste products.

Walk your dog in your neighborhood if possible, rather than using fossil fuels to drive to a dog park. (An added benefit is that if your dog ever gets lose, your neighbors are more likely to know who its owners are.)

Pick up after your dog’s Poo is one of the single biggest things you can do!

Bring own bags from shopping
