As loving and devoted pet parents, we share a deep bond with our dogs and strive to provide them with the best care & nutrition possible. However, it's just as important to consider the impact of our pet care routines on the environment. At Healthybud, we're committed to promoting sustainable practices that benefit both pets and the planet, and we know many pet parents like yourself want to be mindful of the environment too. So read on for some simple yet game-changing eco-friendly tips for pet parents to reduce your environmental pawprint, all while nurturing your beloved fur babies.

1. Embrace Eco-Friendly Tips For Toys 🧸 

When shopping for toys, go for the ones that are crafted from Eco-Friendly Pet Care materials like natural rubber, hemp, or recycled fabrics or recycled ocean-bound plastic. These choices are not only kinder to the environment, but also provide a safe and enjoyable playtime for your furry friend.

2. Choose Sustainable Packaging 📦

When purchasing dog food and supplies, look for brands that either use eco-friendly packaging materials or make an effort to be plastic neutral or negative.

💡 Fun Fact: Healthybud is a proud #PlasticNegative brand! We hold a Plastic Negative Certification with rePurpose Global, meaning we remove more plastic from the environment than we produce!

3. Reduce Single-Use Plastics ♻️

Lessen the use of single-use plastics in your pet care routine. Invest in reusable water bottles, food containers, and reuse plastic packaging as poop bags to reduce plastic waste and protect our wildlife and oceans. Speaking of oceans, did you know that our Cod Skins are a natural by-product and are sustainability sourced off the coast of B.C.? 🐟

4. Support Local and Organic 🌱

Go for locally sourced and organic pet food and treats whenever you can. By supporting local farmers, producers, and by choosing organic options, you contribute to sustainable agriculture practices and reduce the large environmental impact of food production.

5. Practice Energy Efficiency ⚡ 

Conserve energy in your pet care routine by turning off lights when you leave your house for walks. Try not leaving the faucet on excessively when bathing your dog and purchase grooming products that contain sustainably sourced ingredients.

6. Educate and Inspire 📖

Share your eco-friendly tips with fellow pet parents to inspire positive change. Encourage others to adopt sustainable practices and join the movement towards a greener, healthier planet for both pets and people.
