Carbon paw-print reduction

Help your pet to be green like you

We hear so much about carbon footprints and how we can reduce waste in our homes, our cars and our workplaces. But what about our pets? Several local pet stores offer green or organic pet foods and supplies. Here are a few cool eco-friendly products that can help reduce the carbon paw prints of Fluffy and Fido. Call your local pet store for more ideas!
