A Brief Blog Profile: Raise a Green Dog
by Thomas Hynes
Dogs are great. They're funny and nice to be around. But they're also pretty important. They help the sick, disabled and elderly. They work with police and with farmers. Research suggests they might even be responsible for humanity moving out of caves. Dogs aren't just cute. They're indispensable! Today, there are around 78 million dogs in the United States. And as you might imagine, that adds up to quite the carbon foot(paw?)print. Enter Raise a Green Dog and their mission "to bring valuable, green lifestyle information to dog lovers" who aim to spend time with their best friend without harming the environment.
It would be easy to make a joke here about keeping the environment safe by cleaning up after your dog's waste. Laugh all you want, but that can actually be composted. And you can read all about it on Raise a Green Dog. You can also read about how genetically modified foods can affect the lifespan of your dog. Not surprisingly, the right (or "green") lawn care product will shape your pet's well being. This is still a dog blog, however. And as such, you can also get instructions on how to make chicken jerky dog treats.
This site also offers suggestions on toys and other types of dog gear. And while these other accoutrements of dog ownership might not directly affect the dog's health, buying the right (or "green") option will certainly impact the health of the environment.
