Earth Day Resolutions For Your Pets And You!

            Are you going to enjoy the outdoors this Earth Day?

The forecast calls for rain in our neck of the woods, but we hope all of you and your pets get to enjoy some outdoor time today. We all know by now that it's the little things we do that can add up to a big impact on our planet—whether for good or ill. So for Earth Day 2014, we thought we'd share two separate tip sheets, one for us pets and one for you humans. But notice how they nicely overlap!

First up are "Top 10 Green Pet Tips for Earth Day" compiled by Donna Spector, DVM,  a holistic veterinarian who works for Halo Pet Foods. She recommends, of course, using biodegradable poop bags, and even composting your pets' waste.  The good doctor also recommends cutting back on the amount of fish food you give your pet, because our forage fish numbers are rapidly depleting, and the pet food industry uses a significant percentage of our global supply. She also offers lots of other unique earth-friendly tips to help both you and your pet go green.

One of our favorite environmental organizations is the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), and their  recent newsletter offers nifty resolutions for humans to polish their planet-friendly skills. Think reusable bags and containers, composting food waste, eating only seasonal produce and eating less meat. If you don't know why these habits will help lesson your impact on our planet, join the NRDC and subscribe to their monthly newsletter, "This Green Life"—it's wonderful!

        So what will you do to celebrate Earth Day? Let us know!

Big sigh we had rain all Sunday and yesterday. Now it is sunny at least. Happy Earth Day to you. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly

Wow, I never thought about the pet foods depleting our fish. I think we got lucky and it didn't rain.

We didn't think about the fish depleting aspects of pet food either, Sagira. We will now, though! Although what to do about our little fish eater Bella!?

Hey Bocci... we dug HOLES to help Hold the Rainwater... even though we only got a sprinkle. AND our mom scooped the poops and put them in the sculputure pile.
