Cats can be green, too! We recycle and buy environmentally safe products for ourselves and now it's easier to do that for our pets as well. Learn more ways your cat can be green from picking eco-friendly cat litter or how to clean so that it's safe for your cat and for the environment. There are even ways you can create your own green cat toys! Now that you've taken steps to make your lifestyle green, take it another step further and make your cat green too. Your cat and the environment will love you for it.

Toys Made From Bottles

My cats' favorite homemade toys are the empty clean pill bottles and small water bottles that have holes cut in them with a couple treats or dry food in there. It's a double whammy because they make a fun rattling noise, and every so often they spit out a treat!

One Earth-friendly Litter I'd Recommend

Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat is what we use. No perfume (a big plus!), no dust, excellent odor control, super clumping. It might seem expensive upfront - forty pound bags are $14 - $17. However, it clumps so well, less gets used up, and the clumps don't break apart and get mixed with the clean litter. Never had a problem with any of my three cats using it, and two of them were over five years old when I switched. Also, if you keep an eye on the big pet online retailers, you can find discounts and free shipping. A few months ago I ordered four 40lb. bags from Petco, for 20% of and free shipping. Totally beat schlepping it from the store.
