Welcome to Local Hippie’s weekly tip for living a greener life! Each week we will provide you with a quick tip to help you reduce your carbon footprint and change the world.
This week’s tip is for all my dog lovers: fill your own treat jars at the pet store!
We recently rescued a pup from Texas, so needless to say – I’ve been at the pet store more frequently than normal. Between training and his excessive chewing, we’ve been flying through treats and chew sticks!
This has brought my attention to a wonderful earth-friendly option here in Espanola. At Pet Valu they have an array of dog treats and chews that are free of packaging. Simply bring your own bags or jars and fill ‘em up. No plastic necessary!
Now if they could only do the same for cat treats… my five cats would be very happy!
