One of my favorite pet food companies has stepped up with a great giveaway: a 10 pound box of Force from the Honest Kitchen! That makes 77 pounds of fresh food when rehydrated!
The Honest Kitchen has also decided that they will have Bradyn and 4 Paws be their December Charity of the Month- a portion of their sales for the month will go to Bradyn’s service dog fund!! Thank you!
Our original grain free dog food, we designed Force for dogs with sensitive stomachs and chronic ailments related to the consumption of glutinous grains. Force, like all of our diets, is a wheat-free dog food. It is also a gluten-free dog food. Suitable for adult maintenance; sensitive dogs; moderate activity levels.
I haven’t made the jump to making my own food for the pets, but I use Honest Kitchen regularly in our rotation. It’s easy to use, the ingredients are fantastic, and I don’t have to deal with storing and handling raw meat. Plus the company has made a strong commitment to being green and using organic, sustainable products as completely as possible! What’s not to like?
To enter to win, visit the Honest Kitchen’s article on Living Green and comment below with which steps you are taking, or would like to take, to live more green! I do Number 3. I could blame it on laziness but it’s just me being eco-conscious!
I do #1, 4, 5 & 7. I also shop at Farmers’ Markets for locally grown goods and purchase organically raised foods, free range eggs and free range, grass-fed beef as often as possible. It’s that latent hippie in me 🙂
Oh I do 3, 4 and 7. Now I’m off to do number 5… I never thought of it before.
I’m doing #1 (not using chemicals in my yard) and #5 (turning down thermostat). I once got some lawn fertilizer on my hand and had a nasty reaction to it. Then, I realized… if I had that kind of reaction to it, it was toxic to pets/wildlife visiting my yard too. That was the end of chemical use in my yard.
2, 3, 4, and 5. Mostly because I’m cheap but I like the fact that it’s eco-conscious as well!

We do numbers 4 and 6 at my house. We re-use packaging all the time – buckets are used for storage or go to the barn, Amazon boxes are re-purposed for K9 Nosework practice, paper towel tubes make great treat dispensers or targets for teaching heeling. I also love planting my own herbs. Nothing like having fresh basil or rosemary to cook with. We also have a (super-thriving) lemon balm plant, which helps to keep bugs away and smells lovely.

I do 1, 3, and 7. But Cinder is a pretty clean dog. :0)
I do 2, 3 and 5, and would really like to get 100% on 1. We use less and less by the year and I really need to do more research on natural things to use in the yard.
I do #5 which makes us all just huddle together like a bunch of bears. 😉
My family and I do all but #7, but I will now! 🙂 We work together to reduce (our goal for 2011 is “Make do or do without”), reuse (everything we can, including twist ties, food packaging, etc), and of course, recycle. I use cloth menstrual products (purchased on Etsy) and I hang 80% of our laundry. These things are great for the environment and our wallets!
We do 1-6. We have xericscaped our front yard (which is prettier than just cactus) and need no chemicals. If we get weeds, we pull them or just enjoy them! ;). Love growing my own herbs. Haven’t made the jump to entirely natural cleaners; I love Roccal-D too much. 😉
I do #1, 6, and 7 regularly. I don’t wash my dogs very often, so I’ll take the excuse that I’m doing it to be eco-friendly.

You won! Congratulations! I will catch up with you after the blogathon.

I’m doing #1 and #4-7. What’s not on this list (why would it be?) is that I’m opening up an eco-friendly dog boutique soon – helping others to raise green dogs is my #1 way to become more eco-conscious!
Two Little Cavaliers says
number 1 no chemicals in the yard.
Number 2 use as little water as possible
I turn off lights in all rooms I am not in and I only use 1 outside light and it is only on when I am out walking the dogs or out and know I will come home to a dark house otherwise.
I do 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. And yes, 3 is probably laziness on my part. 🙂 Actually, 1 probably is too. An unfertilized lawn doesn’t grow as quickly, therefore, less mowing. But I don’t like the idea of putting something potential harmful to animals on my lawn anyway. Alley, my cat, is not at all happy about 5!
Nancy Freedman-Smith says
I do all 7! AND I just bought a gallon of vinegar to clean my kitchen. Of all the steps I could re-use packaging more, but at least I recycle when I can. One thing I will never give up is paper towel (too much yuck at my house) , although we are using rags more than ever before.
Robin R says
We do 1-5 and I want to do 6.
Lisa W says
I do #1 and #7 as much as possble, #s 2-5 regularly, and will do #6 when we move and I’m working for my sanctuary!
I do #5 and just bundle up and snuggle with the dog to keep warm 🙂
I do almost all of them. #5 doesn’t get done in the freezer, but it does in the house. We keep our house as cold as possible..and wear sweaters!!
