15 Sustainable Pet Products & Ideas for Zero Waste Pet Care

As pet owners, we love spoiling our furry companions and can make a big difference when choosing to purchase biodegradable dog products that are made from recycled or sustainable materials.

Pet waste can cause pollution through runoff. When animal faeces is left on the ground, rain or other water sources can cause it to enter drains and local bodies of water. Over time, the pathogens found in the excrement can then cause serious pollution to these local bodies of water.

Therefore, cleaning up after our pets isn’t just a matter of tidiness and consideration for the community, but also a matter of environmental awareness. Conscientious pet owners must pick up after their pets and dispose of the waste in appropriate areas. If you want to be especially environmentally-conscious, you may even want to use biodegradable waste bags or try composting.
