Practical tips for sustainable pet ownership
With Earth Day right around the corner, what better time to reflect on our environmental impact and look for ways to become more sustainable pet owners?
Plus, being a sustainable pet owner not only benefits the planet, but also promotes a healthier lifestyle for both you and your best buddy. Here are some easy ways to embrace sustainability in your everyday life.
Upcycling pet-related items
It’s very easy to accumulate more pet items than you actually need in your home. One way to make sure these items don’t go to waste and to be more sustainable is to repurpose or upcycle what you already own. For example, instead of buying a brand-new expensive dog bed, why not makeover your pet’s existing bed by sewing some of your sweaters or warm clothing into it? Not only will it make their bed much comfier, it will also smell like you, which your furry friend will love!
If you have a feline companion, this is a great opportunity to avoid delivery boxes stacking up in your bin. Instead, turn them into fun playhouses for your cat to explore. Not only will this reduce the amount of waste you produce, but it will also give your pet a unique and eco-friendly space to enjoy.
Choosing sustainably sourced pet food and treats
When it comes to your pet’s diet, choosing pet food and treats made with sustainably sourced ingredients can make a big difference. The Hypro Premium range only uses high-quality, natural ingredients sourced from local suppliers.
Using eco-friendly cleaning products
Cleaning up after your dog or cat is an inevitable part of pet ownership. Opt for eco-friendly items that are biodegradable, non-toxic and free from harmful chemicals.
Our Hypro Premium Poop Bags are made from plant-based materials and 100% biodegradable and compostable.They are also durable and leak-proof, which means you get a hassle-free and eco-friendly solution when disposing of your pet’s business – every time.

Small changes can make a big impact
As pet owners, we have the power to make changes – even small ones – that leave a positive impression on the environment. Walking instead of driving to your local park, using reusable water bottles and food bowls, and opting for biodegradable and compostable pet products are all simple yet effective ways to reduce our carbon footprint.
