Pets can be great for your health and can be important from a social perspective as well. But, pets (and pet food manufacturing) have environmental impact that you should consider. Adopting from a shelter is a more sustainable option than buying from a breeder. Spay/neuter your pet. Don’t release your pet into the wild. Clean up after your pet. Buy toys and food for your pets from companies that strive to meet sustainable objectives.
