At one point or other, all pet owners contribute to their pet's carbon footprint. A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly or indirectly support human activities. Simple things such as disposing of your cat's kitty litter and the carnivorous diet we feed our pets negatively impact the environment. Luckily, there are some ways to reduce the environmental impact of our pets. Let's go over some basic ways to make your pet environmentally friendly.
Although we all add to the strain on the environment from time to time, this trend does not have to continue. We give little thought to the environmental impact our pets have. We can take simple measures to assure that we are being as green as possible with both our pets and ourselves. Switching to all natural meat or cleaners are just some of the possibilities in reducing the environmental impact of our pets; this also holds true for humans. In this age of global warming and pollutants, it is imperative that we choose responsibly the products that we use.
