For dogs: Degradable doggie bags reduce your impact on landfills. Who wants to think of their pet’s waste enshrined in plastic and buried for years to come? Did you know that grocery store plastic bags can take decades to degrade and cannot be composted? Can them in favor of something that’s better for the environment.

You might even consider investing in a Doggie Dooley system—it’s like a miniature septic tank for your dog’s waste. This easy-to-install system utilizes enzyme and bacteria action to reduce your pet’s waste to a ground-absorbing liquid.

For cats: Some kitty litters can burden landfills. Consider a cat litter that’s environmentally friendly both inside and outside of your home. There are plenty to choose from. You can also use cat litter made of recycled materials or newspaper. Wheat-based scooping cat litter is also an environmentally-friendly alternative.
