8 ways to Green Your Dog
Your dog's two biggest environmental impacts come from his food and the corresponding waste. Easy solutions exist to help you make Fido not only man's best friend's, but Earth's as well.
Make doggy supper time a more healthy affair by serving organic, vegan, and natural meals. It's an easy way to reduce your dog's carbon pawprint.
Properly scoop and dispose of poop in biodegradable bags rather than plastic bags the next time your dog schedules a business meeting.
Stop by a shelter if you're considering buying a dog. Adopting means you're potentially saving a life while racking up good green karma.

A viable option for green poop scoopers (especially those with greenthumbs), composting pet waste keeps it from polluting waterways, clogging landfills, and spreading disease.
