As of late, I have become obsessed with being a good citizen of the planet. I was always mindful of waste, excess consumption, & recycling. I grew up in a family that was environmentally ahead of its time. We recycled beverage bottles, turned off lights when we left a room, didn't run the water excessively or leave the car idling. We were not "hippies" by any means, but we did know that there was not an endless supply of water, & power had to come from "somewhere".
I've been trying to add on to the principles that my parents taught my sister & I...and it hasn't been easy. Continuing something that I've been doing since childhood is not a challenge. Starting new habits that are good, is another story, especially when you're trying to involve your pets. What was I thinking?
Maybe I can capitalize off of other people's good habits. Does that count? I can call it good citizen by proxy...
I made a discovery in the grocery store a little while ago, a company called Cloud Star.
Cloud Star makes healthy dog treats called Buddy Biscuits. They are actively involved in humane education programs & donate a minimum of 10% of their net profits. Donations, support & assist non-profit organizations for animals, women, & children. They have also made a commitment to the environment. Buddy Biscuit packaging is made with recycled materials & printed with soy based inks.
The motto of Cloud Star is Wag More, Bark Less. Translation to human: Smile Lots, Complain Less. Sounds good to me.
