Many worldwide pet parents have begun to wonder about their furry friends impact on the planet.
An average dog (15 kg weight) generates annually 630 kilos of CO2e carbon emissions.
The environmental impact of our dogs & cats has been deeply analysed and most studies take into consideration the impact of pet food, urine & faeces, small treats we give them...on Climate change (Co2e), ozone depletion (CFC-11e), human toxicity (CTUh), terrestrial eutrophication, freshwater and marine eutrophication, freshwater ecotoxicity...
Greenhouse gases pumped into the atmosphere each year due to Pet diets mostly coming from meat. Their diet means and impact on water, fossil fuel, fertilizer and pesticide use associated with producing that meat and on top of that, the energy costs of transporting, slaughtering, or processing feeding animals to become pet food.
CO2 impact produced by plastic waste and transport cost associated with dog and cat poop.
As responsible pet parents, we pick up pets’ poop, ending using hundreds of petroleum-based plastic baggies a year. Even the “biodegradable” alternatives aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.
Plastic garbage. Our love for our pets ends many times happily in toys and treats for them. Toys are important to dogs’ mental and physical health, but many are made of plastic or contain elements that are difficult to recycle — and their durability is often poor.
All this discretionary stuff must be produced, packaged, shipped and, in many cases, delivered to our doors.
The first thing that we, as eco-friendly pet parents, have to do is to take conscience of the impact being generated.
Small things help a lot, just picking up our dog´s faeces and not leaving them on the floor can make an important change in terms of freshwater ecotoxicity, pollution generated by municipal cleaning services...
Also, we must consider offsetting the Co2 pawprint of our dogs and cats by investing in Co2 compensation projects.
Offsetting is a climate action that enables individuals and organizations to compensate for the emissions they cannot avoid, by supporting worthy projects that reduce emissions elsewhere.
Breed weight range: between 29 and 32 kg, Co2e annual generation 1,100 kg. Co2 equivalent to 8,422 km drove by car. 107 trees are needed to compensate the anual pawprint of a Labrador
Breed weight range: between 1 and 4 kilograms, Co2e annual generation 200 kg. Co2 equivalent to 981 km drove by car. 13 trees are needed to compensate the anual pawprint of a Yorkshire.
Breed weight range: between 1.5 and 4 kilograms, Co2e annual generation 200 kg. Co2 equivalent to 1,079 km drove by car. 14 trees are needed to compensate the anual pawprint of a Yorkshire.
Breed weight range: between 22 and 40 kg, Co2e annual generation 1,100 kg. Co2 equivalent to 8,560 km drove by car. 109 trees are needed to compensate the anual pawprint of a Yorkshire.
