So, isn't this eco friendly, go green stuff getting a bit out of hand?  I mean Jeez! Everywhere you turn it's eco friendly this or go green that.... save the planet!  And now you want our pets to go green????

I know, it seems kind of crazy at times, but think about it.  It's more than just saving the planet, it saving our dogs, saving us.  It's healthier, it actually saves us money, it's the right thing to do and it makes you feel good about yourself.  And who doesn't need a little feel good these days?

Here is some information I shared with Fox 2 News when they featured HipGreenDogs. com on their Precious Earth Segment.  Want more information on going green in all parts of your life?  Check out!

What are Eco Friendly Dog Products?
They are products for dogs that are designed in such a way as to not harm the environment or the pet.  They are beds made with recycled material such as plastic bottles or reclaimed cotton, collars and leashes made from bamboo and organic cotton, toys that are durable, non-toxic and can be recycled, the list goes on and on.

What are the benefits to using Eco Friendly Dog Products?
Besides the obvious of being good for the planet, eco friendly dog products are good for our pet because they are healthier, non-toxic, all natural, durable products, and not only are they good for the planet and our pets, but they are good for our wallet.  Having a healthier dog means less trips to the vet, having durable, long lasting toys means less money spent on replacing them and more time for our best friends to play with them!

What are some simple ways we can go green with our Dogs?
There are lots of ways to reduce those carbon paw prints.  First, adopt!  Adopting instead of buying is always green.

Try using a natural, chemical free flea and tick control, you would be shocked at the ingredients in most of these products.

Clean up after your dog using bio-degradable bags.

And of course, buy eco friendly dog products.  And gee, just where can I get these awesome products? of course!  Hurry, your dog will thank you!
