Over the years I have been asked for pet product suggestions of all kinds. Here are some recommendations.
*Click a category link and it will jump you down the page to give you my recommendations.
Dog shirts, cat shirts and MM shirts made with Eco-friendly practices such as water and energy reduction and zero waste. Shirts are Dyed exclusively with low-water dyes in a Bluesign ® Certified, facility. The printer I chose uses inks that are water-based, biodegradable, and non-toxic!
Choose from several cat litter options that are Environmentally safe, biodegradable, Non-GMO, Fragrance-free, and dye-free. Also, a few automatic litter boxes that work with non-clay litters.
*I prefer to use companies that privately manufacture their food. Why? In 2007 hundreds of brands of dog foods were caught in a recall because they used 1 of the 2 major manufacturers.
Companies that privately manufacture their food tend to work closely with their suppliers, maintaining quality control because it is in their own facility, and batch-test their food BEFORE they release it for sale.

4 piece Cookware set is Teflon Free and Nickel Free cookware. I love these pots, they are heavy and pretty. Learning to cook without Teflon took some adjustment. Coconut oil didn’t help prevent sticking when trying to cook things like pancakes but vegan butter did. The control lids allow you to keep steam in or open it to release some steam. The best part is you can use the lid to strain out the liquid without dirtying a separate strainer.
