Ten Ways to Go Green

Here are some useful tips to help you and your cat reduce her carbon pawprint on Mother Earth.

It should come as no surprise that Mother Nature is on the verge of taking a permanent sick day. After all, harmful climate changes due to greenhouse gases, air and water pollution, and the destruction of natural habitats are putting our planet and its inhabitants — both two- and four-legged — in peril.
