I think we can all agree that our pets are our family too. We feed them, love them, take them to the doctor, and chat with them every day. So it's important that we don't forget about the impact they make on the environment, as well as the impact the products we use have on them!

Here are a few of our picks for eco-friendly pet products.

1. Biodegradable dog poo bags
There are probably more "proper" ways of wording that... but it is what it is! Neighbors, park attendees, and your barefooted spouse all thank you for your commitment to cleaning up after your dog. Listen, we all love our dogs, but we don't need to keep their waste around in a plastic bag until the end of time. Let it break down!

2. Food and water bowls
Unless you are one of those special types of pet owners, your pet probably eats and drinks from bowls on the ground. Stay away from plastics since they absorb bacteria. Find a nice ceramic bowl that is lead free and dishwasher safe.

3. Collars
A collar is to a pet as shoes are to a woman. They are functional items, yes, but they are also an accessory to show off a bit of personality. A simple Google search will provide you with a million eco friendly collar options. And OH THE CUTENESS!

4. Insect Repellent
If you're spending time outdoors and the mosquitos are attacking you, chances are high that they are attacking your pet too. Find an organic and deet free spray to keep the pests away and keep your pet safe and healthy.

5. Carpet cleaner and odor eliminator
Ha. Just wanted to see if you were paying attention.

Protect your pets, friends. They are worth it!
