Earth Day began in the United States in 1970 and has since become a global movement for environmental protection that can be celebrated by all of Earth’s residents, including the furry ones. Here at Dog Tag Art, we value people, pets, and the planet above all, which is why our custom pet id tags are made in the USA with a recycled steel core.
Earth Day began in the United States in 1970 and has since become a global movement for environmental protection that can be celebrated by all of Earth’s residents, including the furry ones. Here at Dog Tag Art, we value people, pets, and the planet above all, which is why our custom pet id tags are made in the USA with a recycled steel core. And while it's true that pets cannot actively recycle, plant trees or produce clean energy, there are plenty of ways you and your pal can nurture the planet together and have fun doing it.
If you are in need of some free entertainment, look no further than nature's playground. Spending time outdoors will make your pet happy too! Imagine your cat’s pride as it prowls the landscape waiting for an opportunity to pounce or your pup’s blissfulness as it dives into the water to retrieve a toy. Taking a walk or a hike or visiting a local dog park are easy ways for you and your pet to show appreciation for nature. And at the end of an active day, a patch of sun cloaked grass is a cozy place for everyone to take a rest.
Clean Up Your Pet’s Waste
While it’s not the most enjoyable thing to do, properly disposing of your pet’s waste has a huge impact on the environment. Feces from any animal can carry harmful bacteria that has the potential to contaminate water sources. The Environmental Protection Agency has some great tips to help you practice pet waste management.
Visit a Local Festival
There’s a good chance your town or one nearby will have an Earth Day festival with fun, food, education, and plenty of influential vendors you can support. Animal shelters often participate in these events in order to find homes for rescued pets. So there’s a good chance you could meet your new best friend this Earth Day.
Spread the Word
Sparking up a conversation about environmental conservation and protection is an excellent way to help the mission of Earth Day. A simple chat may create new recycling ideas, inspire a community garden, or lead to big changes. And even though your pet can’t talk, they can still spread the word by wearing custom nature and eco-friendly tags that shows their planet pride:
Earth Day is one of Kirsten Campbell’s favorites. It reminds her of the first time she saw Dan’s sweet face peering through a crate at an Earth Day pet adoption event. Years later, Dan proudly sports his Tall Tree Tag in honor of his forever home and its Earth Day roots.
