Green Gifts for the Pets We Love

Natural Corn Cobs for the Smaller Pets

Natural Corn Cobs can be used for all small animals (birds, rabbits, hamsters, mice, rats, ferrets, guinea pigs, gerbils, hedgehogs, chinchillas, etc). It is made from renewable resource, is biodegradable, compostable, practically dust-free and very absorbent. The way it absorbs is unique too. Most bedding absorbs from the top down leaving the top wet and your pet in constant contact with wet bedding, whereas Natural Corn Cob absorb from the bottom up leaving the top dry. It's cleaner for them, cleaner for you and cleaner for the environment. See Green Bedding Here





Earth Friendly, Pet Friendly Bath

Bath time can be difficult if you or your pet hates it, but it is something we must do from time to time to keep them clean and smelling a little nicer. Unfortunately the shampoos we use on the them can sometimes leave their skin irritated. EarthBath has a line of bath products that are biodegradable and pet friendly. Items marked with a small black paw are compatible with flea control products. Varieties of shampoo, shampoo bars, odor relief spritz and grooming wipes are also available for your pet's benefit and the benefit of the environment. See Green Bath Here


Organic Pet Food

Last, but not all, is a new line of USDA certified organic pet food products from Pet Guard. PetGuard has provided a natural alternative for pets since 1979. They are now introducing: Organic Chicken & Vegetable Entrée and Organic Vegetarian Entrée (Vegan) for dogs and Organic Chicken & Vegetable Entrée and PetGuard Organically Grown Catnip for cats. It's the kind of food that will make me feel much better when my two year old kid decides to give it a try, as soon as I turn my back. At least it's healthier...right? See Organic Food Here





Wrap it in Fun

Pets don't care about wrapping gifts like we do, at least not that I'm aware of, but if you must wrap your pet's gifts, wrap it in recycled wrapping paper and a 100% biodegradable natural ribbon from Peaceful Valley. See Green Ribbon Here

Moving On

I hope my gift guides have helped you in your search for greener gift giving this year. Remember these are only a few of the many green gifting giving options available to you and the ones you love. Also keep in mind that gifts don't always have to be materialistic. There are organization where you can have trees planted in your loved ones (human or pet) memory, or as a celebration.
