Many pet consumers are happy to see that there are a variety of new green pet care products becoming available on the market today, as many consumers turn their eyes towards ways to “go green” and have a positive impact on the environment. While it may be difficult to understand why pet care products may be harmful to the environment, as green pet care products are developed and distributed, it is becoming more and more clear just how many different ways we can adapt green living techniques into our lives, no matter how large or how small they are.

The pet care industry brought in more than $41.2 billion dollars worth of purchases in 2007, and this was a steep rise up over the $38.5 billion dollars of 2006. In 2008, the number is expected to rise to more than $43 million dollars. With an industry that is growing as quickly as this one, there really should not be any surprise that people are looking for ways to create a green pet care industry.

Now that more green pet care products are being offered, many pet care consumers and pet owners are paying much greater attention to the different products and services that they purchase. Because of this reason, an increasing number of pet care supply companies are paying even more attention to the products and services that they develop and sell, in addition to how they are marketing their business.

Green pet care products are now quite easy to come by, as they come in a variety of different applications including organic pet foods and organic pet treats, pet toys constructed from recycled materials, leashes and collars that are crafted from hemp instead of nylon, shampoos and other grooming products that are all natural and chemical free, biodegradable bags for pet waste, biodegradable kitty litter and small animal bedding, and even litter pans crafted from paper so that they break down naturally.

The green pet care trend is one that is gaining significantly in popularity, especially as more and more specialty retailers begin to offer unique and exciting green and organic pet care products. Well known food brands are creating organic, natural versions of their food products. Vital pet care products like grooming and restraining products are now being developed in chemical free, natural and bio degradable substances. Not only are these eco-friendly and biodegradable pet care products better for the environment, but they also tend to be better for the pet as well which means that there are two exceptional reasons to see what green pet care can do for you.

The increased awareness of the impact that pets can have on our environment is making it easier for natural and eco friendly green pet care products to become accepted widely, which is helping pet care product manufacturers create the green pet care products that green-hungry consumers are looking for. Many people are looking for as many possible ways for them to live a lifestyle that is “greener” and one exceptional way to do this is through the adoption of green pet care products and processes.
