If you know anyone with pets, you understand why I put this group under lifestyle. Pets are all about lifestyle.

I’ve always had cats. I’m a homebody and I prefer not to have to worry too much about scheduled bathroom breaks or walks. I want to be able to leave a big pile of food and head out for an overnighter without too much guilt!

Then there are dog people, they usually take their dogs everywhere they go. In fact, they often make decisions about where to go based on whether or not they can bring their dog.

While that sounds kind of limiting to me, I get it. Dogs are pretty awesome and it’s hard not to love them back when they so obviously love you with all their adorable heart!

Below, I’ve got lots of ideas for eco-friendly gifts for pet lovers. I broke them out between cats and dogs and listed the general prices range so you can stay on budget. Note that prices and availability may vary—last updated: 10/12/2020

Puppy Ice Cream (DYI, costs vary by ingredients used)

One year, I made puppy ice cream for all my friends with dogs. And they all went crazy for it.

You need:

  • Plain Yogurt (1 large container)
  • Organic Peanut Butter (1 cup)
  • Ripe Organic Bananas (3-4 depending on size)
  • Ice cube trays or silicone molds
    • The amounts listed above make about 6 ice cube trays worth. Feel free to adjust.
  • A freezer
  • Some freezer safe and leakproof containers to share them in.

It’s super easy to make. You just blend the ingredients until smooth. Put them in the ice cube tray or molds and freeze them.

Then, transfer the frozen ice treats into a container for sharing. If you have glass jars saved from things like pasta sauce or salsas, those work great.

Tie a bow on to make them more festive for any occasion! Here are some more eco-friendly storage options.

Eco-Friendly Dog Toys ($8-35 USD)

Dogs go through toys quickly. And that’s a lot of waste being generated. So loading your favorite pet owner up with some eco-friendly dog toys is a great idea!

Before shopping:

  • What size dog do they have?
  • Are plushies ok? (Some dogs just make a mess of them and some owners don’t appreciate it.)

EarthHero has a great selection of eco-friendly dog toys. They’ve got plushies, they’ve got tuggers, they’ve got balls and fetch toys. Oh and don’t forget the squeakers. There are plenty of Earth-friendly options!
