We all want to give back to the Earth, if not regularly then at least once a year. And what better day to do it on then Earth Day?
Earth Day was founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson on April 22, 1970. It is now celebrated in 192 countries with over 1 billion participants, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
So how can you get involved and have fun with your dog at the same time?
5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day with your Dog
1. Start buying and using biodegradable poop bags- The bags decompose in about the same amount of time as an apple.
3. Make a toy out of an old sock (or a sock missing its mate)- “Making a toy out of an old household product is a great way to re-use rather than consume”-Cesar Millan. If you need help making your own dog toy, visit Make-and-Build-Dog-Stuff.com.
4. Cook your dog a natural, holistic meal- Eating organic is good for your health, your dog’s health, and the planet. Need Recipe ideas? Check out easydogrecipes.com. If you don’t have time to cook a meal for your dog you can change your dog’s food to a more holistic food, without low-grade animal by-products and preservatives. Do this by avoiding food with meat by-product, wheat (or grain), corn (or corn meal), or gluten. Check out dogfoodscoop.com to further understand dog food labels and all other dog food questions.
