Pets

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.

Actions:

  • Adopt rather than buy
