Almost everyone has heard the phrase "go green." If you haven't, 'Where ya been?' You don't have to be a "tree hugger" to go green and make our planet a healthier place to live. Here are just a few ways to go green that don't take a lot of effort.

1. Don't waste. Turn off the lights, TV or radio when no one is in that particular room and save energy. Cook the right amount of food or be sure to use leftovers to cut down on food waste. Take shorter showers and don't let water run unnecessarily.

2. Recycle. Reuse shopping bags. The plastic kind can be used as small trash can liners. If you shred documents, use the shredded paper as packing material when shipping things. Reuse partially used notebooks - just rip out the used part and use the rest. Instead of throwing away printer paper that has been botched on one side, cut it up and use the front as scratch paper.

3. Buy in bulk. It's less expensive than buying single items and there is less packaging going to landfills.

4. Buy organic. Food grown organically is free of pesticides and, therefore, less toxic and healthier for humans and animals and better for the environment.

5. Buy eco friendly cleaning products. Better yet, make your own from ingredients you already have. Most cleaning products are toxic to humans and animals and not good for the environment.

6. Drive less. Plan out errands to be done all in one day and make one trip do it all.

7. Use disposable containers less often. Use regular dishes and silverware. If using a dishwasher, make sure it's full before running it. Buy cloth napkins instead of using paper towels and paper napkins.

8. Use the clothes dryer less. Hang clothes on a line outside to dry. Some of the benefits are less static cling, fresh smell and disinfection from the sun, not to mention saving money on your electric bill.

9. Use natural and organic fertilizers and natural pesticides. Start a compost pile and use that when planting flowers and gardens. Put dead leaves on gardens in the fall to make soil richer. Natural pesticides can be purchased or made from scratch.

10. Buy products that are made from recycled items. Many companies are now making products from recycled materials, including furniture, clothing, flooring, packaging materials, stationary and even dog beds, dog toys and dog clothes. The various materials used for recycling include aluminum, plastic soda bottles, reclaimed cotton, reclaimed wood, rubber and paper.

There are actually many ways to go green and make our planet less toxic. If every person would make a conscious effort to do just one thing to go green, the impact would be huge.

Tarzana, CA (PRWEB) June 27, 2008

Aroma Paws, a manufacturer of chemical free dog grooming products, debuts its extensive line of all natural luxury dog and pet products, including Luxury Dog Shampoo and Conditioner in 8 amazing fragrances. This all natural, chemical free line of dog grooming supplies has already received rave reviews in sample test marketing.

The signature products in the line are the chemical free Luxury Dog Shampoo & Conditioner and the Deodorizing Coat Spray. Both products are made from all natural ingredients and are available in Honeysuckle Jasmine Violet, a French Lavender Chamomile Blend, Mandarin Green Tea with Ginger, Geranium Orchid Peony Sage, and many other fragrances that are sure to please both dog's and their caretakers.

Aroma Paws considers their product line "eco-friendly essentials", and shies away from using the word "spa" in their products. "Frankly, though the products are amazing and indulgent, we don't want to consider this a treat. Using safer, more earth conscious products on ourselves and our animals needs to be a way of life," says Joe Guzman, the firms President. "We've found a way to bring the spa experience home with the rich fragrances from essential oils, combined in an exciting new way."

One of Aroma Paws best attributes is the sheer amount of products that they carry. From Luxury Dog Shampoo & Conditioner, Deodorizing Coat Spray, A Paw Conditioning Treatment, & 100% Vegan Fur Conditioning Treatment to all natural soy wax candles and Pawfume: Organic Dog Perfume for "Diva Doggies."

With so many grooming product companies closing their doors, Aroma Paws saw a gap in the market, a gap that needed to be filled. Partner and chief creative designer Crystalyn Guzman says: "Our goal is to provide consumers an eco-friendly alternative to the highly processed chemical based shampoos and grooming aids that are available in all of the mass merchandise stores. It would be a shame if people couldn't find safe, natural and eco-friendly products to use on their "furry babies."

Aroma Paws is committed to donating a percentage of its proceeds to worthwhile causes, so they set up a Charity Submission Form on their website. Worthwhile organizations can submit their cause or event and be considered for donations of funds or product. "This is our way of helping the smaller "grass roots" charities in our communities that many times need the most help.

(PRWEB UK) 20 April 2012

Pet supplies e-tailer Easy Animal has signed an exclusive UK distribution deal with US dog bed designer and manufacturer Molly Mutt.

The Molly Mutt eco friendly dog duvet was an instant hit stateside when it launched in 2009. It was designed by co-owner Molly Mundt for her use with her own three dogs at home in California. Molly Mutt is a revolutionary dog duvet & stuff sack (patent pending). The concept is simple. Fill the duvet with your old blankets and clothes to make a durable bed. The duvet will be an instant hit with a dog as the bed smells of its owner. The duvet is made from pre shrunk 100% cotton canvas and it’s fully zippered to make it easy to remove and refill for washing.

Easy Animal owner Tim Berrisford said: “We’re extremely pleased to secure the deal to be the sole UK distributor for Molly Mutt dog duvets. We’re constantly on the lookout for innovative new products to extend our range and improve customer choice. We’re proud to take on this particular new product as its fits so well with the Easy Animal ethos. It’s stylish, practical, valuable, environmentally sound and affordable."

The Molly Mutt is a great way to recycle old clothes and household fabric items and ticks every box for the eco friendly pet owner. Molly Mutt eco dog beds have just been exhibited at the PATS pet trade show at Sandown Park and the response was excellent, the great plus with these dog beds are that they are not shipping containers of foam over from china which significantly saves the planet and also they don't take up a lot of space in a retail unit so retailers love the concept.

Further details are available from http://www.mollymutt.co.uk or by contacting Easy Animal on 01785 819507, at this time they are actively seeking new retail outlets.

It seems that everyone is "going green" these days. You don't have to believe in global warming to go green. Even if global warming doesn't exist, going green is beneficial to your health by putting less chemicals and toxins in our air and water. Recycling means less waste in our landfills. Using natural cleaners is less toxic to our bodies and our pets. You can even go green with your dog. Here's how:

1. Buy eco-friendly dog beds.

There are companies that manufacture dog beds from natural materials or use recycling in their manufacturing process. Some companies use hemp, which is a plant that can be harvested for its fibers and is used to make clothing, dog beds and other things. It has been used for centuries. No pesticides are needed for growing it, and it is almost instantly replenished once picked and grows in near drought conditions. Organic cotton is another natural material used for dog beds. Organic means grown without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers.

Some companies use recycled plastic soda bottles to make dog beds. They do this by removing the labels and caps and then cleaning and disinfecting the bottles. The plastic bottles are then chopped into flakes, melted, liquefied and then re-engineered into fibers that are used in fiber fill and fabrics. This process can use up to 8 times less energy than it takes to manufacture the same material new.

By buying eco-friendly dog beds, you use natural resources, which are less toxic, and keep garbage out of the landfills, using less energy to make a new dog bed than starting from scratch. Many eco-friendly dog beds are made from high-quality materials and are very durable, thus saving you money. They come in many different styles and colors. Some eco-friendly dog beds, such as a bumper bed, can be customized, meaning you choose the color and pattern of the bed and the cushion that goes inside it. Eco-friendly dog beds are usually stylish and come in eye-popping colors.

2. Buy eco-friendly dog toys.

Your dog loves to play and needs toys. Why not let him go green by buying him eco-friendly dog toys? Some plush dog toys are made with eco fabric that utilizes 85% recycled fibers and are then stuffed with fiber fill made from recycled soda bottles, using the same procedure as the one used for making dog beds. Eco-friendly dog toys also come in modern designs and inspired colors that radiate energy. The more durable "guaranteed tough" dog toys are designed to be recyclable and to create virtually no waste during the manufacturing process. They contain up to 10% post-industrial recycled plastic, along with post-consumer recycled plastic that's received directly from customer returns.

3. Buy eco-friendly dog clothes.

If your dog wears clothes, you and your dog can go green by buying eco-friendly dog sweaters and jackets. You can find dog sweaters that are made from reclaimed cotton. That is, scraps from T-shirts or other cotton garments that are too small to do anything with and would otherwise end up in an incinerator are cleaned and separated into raw fibers and then blended with a small amount of acrylic to make dog sweaters. The fibers are carefully mixed to create cool colors and patterns. In this way, new cotton doesn't have to be grown or dyed, thus saving the earth from more chemicals and saving water and farmland.

There are dog jackets that are made from 100% recycled polyester and are also recyclable once dogs grow out of them, wear them out or the dogs' owners get tired of them.

4. Use natural therapies to treat your dog.

Many flea and tick products are very toxic for your dog and for the environment. You can use herbs, vinegar, some essential oils and other natural therapies to keep the fleas and ticks away. There are websites with "recipes" for flea and tick treatments so you can make your own or you can buy flea and tick shampoo that contains natural ingredients that's available in most health food stores. Your dog will be healthier if it is exposed to less toxins and you will be healthier too. Whatever goes on your dog also goes in your dog and in you if you handle your dog.

There are lots of ways to go green, whether you believe global warming exists or not. Going green is just good -- good for the environment, good for your health, good for animals and pets and just plain makes you feel good doing it. Besides that, going green can save you money by reusing, recycling, using less and staying healthy. And now, going green is not just for humans -- your dog can go green too.
