Discover how to be a more sustainable pet parent, including reducing your dog’s carbon footprint, sustainability and how to save money and the planet
Want to know how to make raising your pup more planet-friendly? You have come to the right place. Here at Potty Buddy we are dedicated to creating high-quality, sustainable products that are good for both you and your pooch.
In this blog we will take you through some of the ways you can be a more sustainable pet parent, helping to reduce your dog’s carbon footprint and save money while you’re at it.
So, without further ado, let’s get started!
1. Walk rather than drive
A good stretch of the legs is beneficial for both pooch and owner, so if you are able try walking rather than driving to destinations.
2. Donate used toys
Many of us will know the feeling of getting overexcited buying dog toys, only to end up with a pile of unused teddies and squeaky toys. Why not donate all your unused toys to an animal shelter to bring joy to other pups?
3. Make your own toys
There are so many fun and creative ways to make dog toys by us using items around your house and bits of old material. Get on Pinterest and see what you could create!
4. Recycle food packaging
Recycle old food packaging and pouches to help reduce the effects of waste on the environment.
5. Organic foods and pet products
Organic and sustainably sourced pet products can be a little pricey at times, but are often the best option for your pet and the planet. Why not try making your own pet-safe food at home for a healthy dog diet?
6. Leave wildlife how you found it
We can occasionally forget the impact we and our pets can have on nature, when we are out on our daily walks. So ensure you leave the wildlife just as you found it - pick up after your dog, throw away any litter and be mindful of growing plant life and wild animals.
7. Biodegradable/compostable litter and poo bags
Plastic and other non-biodegradable products pose a threat to the environment, and so opting for more eco-friendly dog supplies can be a way to reduce your pet’s carbon footprint.
An ultra comfortable, thick and durable blanket, equipped with a proprietary Moisture Guard to trap and absorb dirt, pee, poop…you get the idea!
The fabrics are safe and non-toxic, making it a great choice for both pet and human, and lends itself perfectly for use on sofas, beds, crates, kennels and everywhere in between!
Our chew and leak-proof blanket has three layers, consisting of a top layer of comfy fleece, a middle layer of waterproof film to catch and absorb anything unpleasant, and a bottom layer of cozy sherpa, making it a super snuggly choice for you and your dog.
Whether your pup prefers the fleece or sherpa side of the blanket, you can guarantee that they will feel like they are laying amongst the clouds. Our colors and designs are elegant and stylish, so this blanket won’t look out of place draped over the sofa or on your bed.
Our premium reusable puppy pads have a unique three-layered design which works to trap odors and stop leakage, making for a more mess-free training experience. Made of ultra-absorbent, durable materials, they can be used again and again, saving both your floors, furniture and the planet!
And they’re not only for potty training - they can also be used as crate or kennel liners or to slip under food/water bowls or litter boxes to avoid excess mess. The numbers speak for themselves, when it comes to helping protect the planet and your wallet too:
240 Tons of Waste Prevented - through the use of our reusable pads, our customers have prevented over 7 million disposable pads from ending up in landfill
$30/month Average Savings - we are not a one-trick-wonder: our pads can be reused over and over, helping to minimize your pet expenses.
Our ultra comfy dog diapers are super absorbent, with 3x better liquid absorption than the average diaper, leak resistant, and planet-friendly.
And just like our Potty Pads, all our dog diapers are reusable - once again helping to save the planet and your wallet! Our reusable dog diapers allow you to keep your pup secure and comfortable, whilst also keeping your home free from unpleasant messes, stains and smells.
Less time cleaning up and more fun and games with your buddy!
Our mission at Potty Buddy is to offer reusable dog training products that help to nurture happy & healthy dogs, whilst working to protect the environment too.
We hope this blog has helped spark your inspiration for how you too can minimize your pup’s carbon pawprint and protect the world for future generations of dog lovers.
