Pets are one nosey bunch—they like to get their sniffers and paws into everything it seems! With that in mind, use products for your home and yard that are safe for pets and benefit the environment!

-- Consider ditching lawn chemicals in favor of organic fertilizers.

-- When bath time rolls around, lather up with a natural approach to grooming your pet. Several products on the market don't contain any artificial fragrances, sodium lauryl sulfates or artificial color.

-- Pets can be messy and clean-up time is inevitable. But choose cleaning products that are as gentle on the planet as they are on your home. Environmentally-friendly, biodegradable cleaning products, include liquid cleaning products that biodegrade and powdered products with minerals that break down into non-harmful decomposition products.

--During winter, use a child- and pet-safe de-icer.

-- Adopt yard and home products made of recyclable material! Look for #1 and #2 high-density polyethylene (HDPE) containers and products that come in recyclable cardboard or glass.
