Happy Earth Day!!!

Today is Earth Day, a great day to take action to help our Earth and your pup!

Being green and healthy, we like to celebrate Earth Day everyday, but the nice thing about having a designated day is it can bring attention and awareness to things that each and everyone of us can do to help the environment and help our dogs!

According to Earth Day Network..."Each year, Earth Day (on April 22) marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. The idea came to Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, after witnessing the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. Inspired by the student anti-war movement, he realized that if he could infuse that energy with an emerging public consciousness about air and water pollution, it would force environmental protection onto the national political agenda. Senator Nelson announced the idea for a “national teach-in on the environment” to the national media; persuaded Pete McCloskey, a conservation-minded Republican Congressman, to serve as his co-chair; and recruited Denis Hayes as national coordinator. Hayes built a national staff of 85 to promote events across the land.

As a result, on the 22nd of April, 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies," for the very first time.

In honor of this great day, we are sharing a Green Dog tip every hour on Twitter and Facebook about how you can help your dog go green, for a healthier, happier pup and environment.

So head on over and follow us on Twitter, and like our page on Facebook , it's gonna be a virtual sharing of a wealth of green and healthy information!
