Hello Dog Lovers,

Happy Earth Day to everyone out there! I hope you take time out of your busy schedules, whether you are in school or working to go out and feel the environment around you. Like seriously, just go out and breathe in the fresh air outside! Appreciate the nature and surroundings we have. Taking care of the environment is very important for us, so our dogs can sniff around things and explore and investigate everything when it goes out for a walk. Just Kidding! But yes, we should strive to make this world a better place to live in. Because I believe whether you are from Asia, Europe, Africa or anywhere else the Earth is our home and we should take care of it so our future generations can enjoy the same environment that we did. Anyways, I’m drifting off topic here! I have this idea that we should do celebrate Earth Day with our dogs. So I’m gonna post some points on how you can make the best of this holiday with your favorite four legged family member 🙂

First I’m gonna list some eco-friendly products I recommend you should definitely check out for your dog.

Okay, guys I hope you consider checking the products out and see what you think of them! So now, I want to list a couple of fun ways to spend Earth Day for all you Dog Lovers out there.

Clean up your local Dog Park:- If your local dog park is in need of a clean up, gather some of your friends and go there and spend the day cleaning some of the trash there. Just keep in mind that some of the trash may be recycled. And place a recyclable trash bin so others in the park can recycle it too. So now, you’ll have the satisfaction of seeing many happy dogs jumping and playing around in a clean and green doggy park.

Plant a Garden:- This is the best time for our dog to make use of their digging skills to help make a garden for us 😉 So seriously, if you wanted to plant some flowers or grow some vegetables, Earth Day is the best day to do it. I’m sure you will feel happy when you see your dog crunching on those healthy vegetables after a ruff day at work!

Go for a Walk with your Dog:- This might be the best one I mention, but what freakin’ way to spend Earth Day than other than being outside with your dog, duh! So seriously, enjoy this holiday out there! 

Use Eco-Friendly Dog Products:- Like I mentioned the products at the top, there are many eco-friendly dog products out there online you can definitely check out and buy for your dog. Compostable dog bags are definitely a good idea because we can be rest assured those bags will break down at the landfill. 

Donate your old items at the local shelter:- If you have some old toys of your dog, or any other products that your dog doesn’t use anymore, i suggest donating them at the local shelter because there are a lot of shelter dogs that could really use them. You can even donate your own stuff! You have no idea how the items you think are useless could potentially make a shelter dog happy!
