Planet-happy pet tricks

Friday, February 15th, 2008

You may recycle plastic bags and work hard to use cloth bags instead. But when you take the pooch for a walk, you have to scoop his poop into something – probably a plastic bag that then goes into the trash and ends up in a landfill. Same deal with litter pan liners for the feline member of the family.

Well, help is here. BioBag offers doggie waste bags and cat pan liners that are 100 percent compostable and biodegradable, made from cornstarch and renewable resources. You can get 100 dog waste bags for $18.45 and 10 cat pan liners for $18.40 at www.poopbags.com. You can find natural alternatives to clay litter made from corn and wheat at your grocer.

Planetdog.com is in on the green pet campaign as well. For $9.95, it offers the Orbee-Tuff RecycleBall and RecycleBone. Non-toxic and mint flavored, they are made from leftover material that would otherwise be thrown away. And if Rambo chews them up, you can send the bits back to the company for recycling into future toys.

The company also makes an eco-friendly, 100 percent hemp, fleece-lined adjustable harness that also doubles as a doggie seatbelts for rides.
