Gearing up for Earth Day? We sure are!
You’ve probably already considered the many ways you can reduce your carbon footprint, but have you thought about your dog’s carbon pawprint? Yep, even man’s best friend can do his part in making our world a little greener.
While your dog may need you to make his green choices for him, he certainly has something to contribute. Practical ways to shrink your dog’s carbon pawprint include using eco-friendly dog accessories for walks or natural, organic shampoos for bath times. If your pet store doesn’t have eco-friendly products, you can find some great ones online at Earth Dog, a local business right here in Brentwood.
Want to get a little bit more creative for Earth Day? Try making homemade dog food and treats for your dog! Two Dog Press has some organic recipes you might like to try, including one for Peanut Butter Bones.
In terms of staying green, also, be sure to reuse leashes, collars, and other dog accessories – those can add up quick. And, of course, always spay or neuter your dog.
Be sure to grab your eco-friendly dog and head out to Centennial Park this Saturday, April 23rd, to celebrate Earth Day with the community! There will be live music, activities for all ages, and a lot food. You may also want to visit Living Well Events to learn more about sustainable event planning you do here in Nashville.
