Pets Reduce Their Carbon Paw Print

By Rebecca L. Rhoades and Jordan Gerard

When it comes to our pets, there’s little we wouldn’t do to ensure their happiness. We feed them human-grade foods, buy them luxurious furnishings, and indulge their cravings for Puppucinos. But our commitment to their health and happiness doesn’t have to come at the expense of our planet. 

Sustainability and environmental consciousness have made their way into the pet industry, as consumers demand products for their four-legged and feathered friends that feature natural ingredients, come in recyclable packaging, and are made with sustainable processes. 

As always, make sure to always speak with your veterinarian before introducing a new food or supplement into your pet’s diet. 

Avian Toy 

Birds love to chew, but instead of hard plastic toys, give them something that is interesting, long-lasting, and good for both birds and the environment. Scout & Zoe offers large and small Avian Toys. Both sizes feature colorful wood blocks, woven bamboo accents, leather straps, and natural antlers for hours of chewing pleasure. No chemicals or preservatives are used, and the antlers are a great source of natural calcium and phosphorus. And all Scout & Zoe products are packaged and labeled at a center for intellectually disabled individuals. $42.99-$52.99, www.scoutandzoes.com


Baked Dog Food 

Feed Fido a diet that’s good for him — and for the planet. Petaluma’s Roasted Peanut Butter & Sweet Potato baked food for adult and senior dogs is made with plant-based organic ingredients — but no corn and soy — includes zero factory-farmed animal protein, and comes in compostable packaging. The company is one of the only Certified B Corporations in the pet category, is Climate Neutral Certified — its foods are baked in a solar-power facility — and donates 1% of all revenue to organizations that fight climate change and food insecurity. $34.95/5 pounds, www.feedpetaluma.com
