Does owning a cat impact the environment?
Here at Chimney Sheep we've heard lots about customers cats over the years. Normally we're being asked about how to prevent them from escaping up the chimney, but from time to time we're lucky enough to be treated to a tale or two about them enjoying our sheep's wool or just doing something daft. Our customer's passion for pets are one of the reasons we decided to introduce a natural pet range - a collection of pet products that aim to keep your furry friends paw print low, and have minimal impact on the environment.
This wool felt cat toy is a great example of sustainability when it comes to cat toys, not only does it make use of a natural material. It's sustainable, and naturally stores carbon from the environment meaning it has a lovely low carbon pawprint.
Can you believe than an average sized cat produces 310 kg of carbon per year? That's almost half the carbon emissions of a small petrol car. A staggering amount for such a small feline. These figures do take into account an average amount of cat apparel and cat food. Unfortunately this means owning a cat directly contributes to ongoing environmental issues, including but not limited to the greenhouse effect and increasing amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. But, as their owners are there are things you can do to help remedy this.
Reduce your cats environmental paw print by making sustainable and eco-friendly choices when it comes to their apparel and needs. Unfortunately, your cat can't make decisions for itself when it comes to the environment - so you have to make the important choices, and keep the earth in mind when it comes to choosing new pet products. Change can be difficult, so we recommend making life-for-like swaps where you can - simply swapping out your current product for something a little bit more eco-friendly. Look to natural materials when it comes to pet collars and other apparel. Why not look into natural materials for your cat beds? Making little changes really adds up over time, so by trying something a little more environmentally friendly you could make a real difference in the long run.
