Don't Forget the Pets!
My cats are like my children, and I always want the best for them, so it is only natural that I make positive adjustments to their lifestyles that also fit into the larger idea of keeping a more waste-free household. A great sustainable food option for cats (and dogs, too!) is NomNomNow, the only pet food company that prepares its food to order, sending out meals within a mere few days of cooking them. It's 100 percent owned and operated kitchen produces zero food waste and all of its packageing, right down to the nontoxic cold packs and meal pouches, is completely recyclable.
When it comes to cat litter, make sure to use natural kinds, such as those with a base of walnut, wood, or wheat, that are free from toxic materials — clumping clay litters usually contain silica, a known carcinogenic that can have harsh effects on animals. For dogs, biodegradable and eco-friendly poop bags are also great to have on hand.
