Trees Help Combat Climate Change
Is there anything better than stepping outside on a warm sunny day and breathing in the air? Hopefully, clean air! Explains Earth Day Network, “Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.”
Of course they do! Not only do our pets seek out the shade and coolness of lying beneath a tree, and families and friends gather under the shade of a tree for gatherings, games, and get-togethers, Earth Day Network shares that trees also “help communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability and provide food, energy and income.”

Use recycle shopping bags when going grocery shopping for your supplies and food.
Feed your pet their food in a stainless steel dish.
Make your pet's snacks whenever possible.
Recycle pet food containers and cans instead of throwing them in with the trash.
Recycle pet medication containers (check with your vet, pharmacy, and acupuncturist as many happily accept them. My acupuncturist loves them).
Clean "green" with chemical-free household supplies (we should be anyway for the health and safety of our pets).
Use biodegradable "doggy-do" bags.
Don't use the microwave to warm up their food.
Plant a tree in memory of a pet.
When emptying out a pet pool or water dish, use it to water flowers, shrubs, and trees.
Recycle old dog beds, blankets, and toys. Stitch em' up, give them a wash, and donate to shelters.
Spay or neuter pets to reduce the epidemic of homeless animals and overpopulated shelters.
We're also hooking up with The Pet Parade Blog Hop hosted by Rascal & Rocco, Bionic Basil, our co-host Owned by a Husky, and Barking from the Bayou! Be sure to visit their blogs & others' too!
