4 Tips to Be a Sustainable and Eco-friendly Pet Owner

As pet owners we believe that nothing on this Earth has more good karma than dogs. With their trusty canine noses as our guides, we know we can do a whole lot of good for a whole lot of people. That's why we're sharing simple steps to become an eco- friendly pet owner to help create a greener Earth together. The payoff? More good karma for all!

Start with plant-first pet food
KARMA™ dog food offers pets and their humans a plant-first alternative that provides adult dogs with balanced nutrition. We take pet nutrition serious around here. This means by feeding your dog plant-first dog food, you're feeding your dog ingredients made with plant-based superfoods crafted to nourish your dog’s whole body health. KARMA™ plant-first dog food is designed to be nutritionally balanced with whole grains, healthy fats, and proteins to support your dog’s growing body. Finding sustainable pet food is easier than you think, just check out our Chicken and White Fish flavored KAMA™ adult dry dog food and see for yourself how easy it is to feed your dog sustainable pet food. KARMA™ believes everyone, including our furry friends can play a role in creating a more sustainable and environmentally friendly world. When pets eat healthy, they live happy lives — and protecting the earth should never be an afterthought.

Look for sustainable pet goods
Beyond the dog bowl, there are tons of ways to lead a more environmentally conscious lifestyle with your pet. Start by looking for eco-friendly pet toys and accessories such as collars, leashes, and bedding made from recyclable plastics or sustainable materials like bamboo and hemp. This simple step can significantly reduce the amount of pet-related plastic bound for landfills and help you be one step closer to sustainable living for you and your furry friend!

Remember the three R’s
Keep an eye out for recycled or recyclable packaging - we're big believers in the three R's - reduce, reuse, recycle! By going eco-friendly with the materials our pet supplies are boxed or bagged in, we can reduce our environmental pawprint that much more. At KARMA™ we’ve partnered with TerraCycle® to help support their national recycling program using your empty KARMA™ dog food packaging. Even better, the recyclable packaging of KARMA™ is produced at a site committed to zero waste to landfill.

Don't forget about number two
As a pet owner, make sure you are cleaning up after your four-legged friends. When doing so, make the switch to biodegradable or compostable poop bags to help clean up after your pets. Your standard plastic baggie is not a sustainable product and can take hundreds of years to decompose in a landfill. Do the dirty work the clean way to help reduce harmful bacteria and nutrients left from pet waste on the ground and to limit the use of single use plastic bags.

Feeling good about the future leads to more thoughtful practices with your pet. Now is the time to make the shift towards being an eco-friendly pet owner to reduce your carbon pawprint and help live a more sustainable lifestyle!
