Are you trying to live an eco-friendly existence? Looking for environment-friendly accessories for your rabbit cages? Appalled by the lack of “green” pet accessories in the market?
I know exactly how you feel. Being a self-confessed “eco nut” myself, I try to use only earth-loving materials – even when it comes to pet accessories.
Where do you find eco-friendly accessories for your pet rabbit?
The answer is right in your home.
I’m not pulling you’re leg. I’m dead serious! You don’t have to scour pet stores all over the country to look for rabbit accessories that won’t hurt the planet. You just have to look around in your own home.
Not convinced? Here are some tips to help you get started:
1. Chew Toys
Every rabbit needs chew toys. In fact, a rabbit’s teeth grow continuously, so they have to keep on chewing to file their teeth down.
Instead of buying chew toys, why don’t you use old phonebooks instead? Rabbits are known to love chewing on these! You can also give your pet old baby toys your child has outgrown.
Look for litter boxes made out of old newspapers. These are definitely more environment-friendly than the usual plastic or metal counterparts.
3. Compost Pile
Turn your pet’s waste into compost. If you have a garden, this will help nurture the soil and your plants. If you don’t, you can sell it to garden stores or to neighbors who have gardens.
Warning: Some rabbits actually prove to be allergic to some of the chemicals found in rabbit cage accessories. So, it’s always a wise thing to go green! You’re not only protecting the earth, but your pet too!
With these three tips on eco-friendly accessories for rabbit cages, you and your rabbit will be living a sustainable and responsible life!
