If you have a dog then you’ve most likely spent hours trolling pet food stores or boutiques, searching for the perfect, healthy food, toys and treats for your pup.If you’re anything like me, it has left you confused.

Having recently adopted my first dog, I have scoured the Internet night after night, trying to make sense of it all. Last week I covered healthy dog treats.

Today I’ll give you the scoop on eco-friendly gear that will make make playtime decadent for your dog but safe for Mother Nature.

They aren’t a luxury: Dogs need toys. They need playtime. They need fun. I know there are some old stalwarts out there that think dogs don’t need anything but exercise, food, and water, but I couldn’t disagree more. …read more of Healthy Dog, Healthy Planet: Play Time here

As dog owners we spend hours trolling pet food stores or boutiques, searching for the perfect food, toys and treats for our pooches.

If you’re anything like me, some of these shopping excursions have left you confused, wondering just what the difference is between “natural” and “organic” on a dog food label, or whether it is really true that those fake bacon treats contain propylene?

Not only was the cost over a thousand dollars a year, but the overall combination and amount of different products I was using was huge.

Green or living walls can be seen worldwide in and on buildings, adding bursts of unexpected plant life, particularly in urban settings where gardening space is at a premium. The vertical gardens designed by Parisian Patrick Blanc, an innovator in this area, are often elaborate, huge undertakings.
