Pet feeding bowls aren’t all that glamorous, but if you are being as eco-friendly as possible then it’s great to know that there are green options in bowls too. Renewable and bio-degradable bamboo makes an excellent replacement for plastic in feeding bowls. It is dishwasher safe and durable, non-toxic and affordable. When you are finished with it, it can safely be disposed of without harming the environment, as it is biodegradable. This bowl comes in a natural oatmeal color.

Bowsers Eco+ Orbit Dog Bed

Monday, December 7th, 2015

The following is a paid review:
dogbedeco
For the treehugging doggy in your life. This stylish bed (which comes in three colors: Sienna (shown), Whistler Gray and Rainforest) is perfect for all dogs who lead an active lifestyle. I know my dog, Zola, would especially love the bolster on this bed. It lets him sleep but keep one eye open just in case a human may go near the cookie jar!

The bottom of this bed is comprised of waterproof nylon which lets this bed work just as well indoors as outdoors. Perfect if you want to take your dog with you camping or boating. Your pup will stay nice and dry while the bottom of the bed keeps the moisture and cold away.

The bed is comfy and soft since it is filled with fleece fabric constructed from recycled plastic soda pop bottles. It is estimated by Bowsers that this particular bed helps eliminate up to 30 pop bottles from ending up in the landfill.

The best part is that the bolster and cushion cover can be unzipped and easily removed and thrown in the washing machine and dryer. This allows you to keep this bed fresh and clean for years to come. And we all know that purchasing a quality pet bed that can last many dog years will be the best eco-friendly decision a human can make. Zola says; “pass the cookies!”

Personalized Dog Collar In Soy Fabric

Saturday, November 7th, 2015

Soy fabric is soft and tough, and very eco-friendly as a by-product of soy food processing. Soy is anti-bacterial and odor resistant, as well as being soft on the skin, so is perfect for pets with sensitive skin. All natural dyes in cranberry, indigo, rose or olive make these collars even more attractive and earth friendly.

The collars can be personalized with names and numbers as an extra precaution against your pet being lost. Not the cheapest dog collars on the market, but they are definitely sturdy and good quality, and the personalizing is worth paying a bit more for.

Costs $ 19.75 from Fetch Dog

Washable Reusable Dog Diapers

Saturday, July 4th, 2015

If your faithful friend is getting old and incontinent, these re-usable dog diapers could make all the difference. You don’t want to spend your time getting irritated with him for those dribbles and messes he can’t help. This way they are contained and you can just wash the diaper and re-use it.

It’s not just old dogs that can use these. Pet owners also use them for dogs on heat, not just to keep the mess under wraps but also  to keep their females safe from unwanted male attentions!

These dog diapers come in a variety of sizes to fit most dogs. They are machine washable and dryable so a 2-pack should be enough unless you have a severely incontinent pet. They are not very cheap but would work out considerably cheaper than disposable diapers over a long period and are much better for the environment, so make a greener choice overall.

Dog Diapers cost between $21.99 and 47.99 depending on size from Only Natural Pet Store.

Stainless Steel Pet Water Bottles

Friday, May 8th, 2015

Keeping hydrated is important for pets as well as humans, so when you’re out and about with your dog, it makes sense to take along water for him too. Now that plastic bottles have such a bad press, stainless steel is the cleanest and safest container to keep your water fresh and pure.

These stainless bottles are specially designed with a roller ball top, so that your pet can lick water straight from the bottle, which could be convenient when you don’t want to carry a bowl along too. These bottles look pretty cool and trendy and come in four bright colors.

Just make sure you don’t get your water bottle confused with his, unless you want to share doggie saliva!

Costs $16.95 from Jake’s Dog House

Bio-degradable Dog Waste Pick-up Bags

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Living in the city means you have to pick up after your dog, but most bags designed for the job are just creating more plastic for the landfill.

These biodegradable bags are the green alternative. They look like plastic and are strong enough and thick enough  to do the job with no mess, but will break down in the compost  quite quickly.

Of course you don’t want to add dog poop to a compost heap that will be used on your veggie garden, but  you could create a separate compost heap for using on ornamental plants if you are planning to compost these yourself.

Otherwise you can just drop them in the trash, knowing that at least the poop bag won’t be creating a plastic island in the middle of any oceans any time in the future.

Pack of 100 bags costs $9.95 from at SitStay.com
