One of my important ongoing goals is to give back to the planet, so I’ve made a new year’s resolution to start the “30-Day Green Cat Challenge”. My cat, Furball, already lives a very eco-friendly lifestyle, but I recognize that there’s always room to reduce his carbon paw print just a little more. For 30 days, I’m going to examine one aspect of a cat’s life and and offer ideas and actions that you can take to give your cat a green makeover in a month!
Obviously, a single little green cat is not going to save the planet. However, when you consider that there are over 60 million cats in American households, just imagine the impact of our collective choices for a greener pet lifestyle. Not only do I want to change the life of my cat to be more eco-friendly, I’d love to see a more eco-friendly pet industry too. So, throughout this challenge, I’m also going to look at how I can influence pet retailers and manufacturers to offer more green and enviro-friendly pet products and services. I’ve already got an idea about how to sway one of America’s largest pet retailers by starting with a litter box!
I would like to invite you to join the challenge to green your cat’s life. Please follow along and if a change makes sense for your cat, give it a try. If it doesn’t, please feel free to pass on it. I’d love to hear your comments and ideas along the way and at the end of the 30 days, I’m going to create an “End of Challenge Success Page” to hear what changes readers made in their cat’s life.
