Helping The Planet...One Baggie At A Time!

TORONTO, ON (Thursday April 22nd, 2010) Today’s society is bombarded with messages about sustainability and going “green” via the media. With this being said, some dog owners have taken this message to heart and are reducing their dog’s carbon mark on this planet by enlisting the services of a fresh, trendy and unique Toronto dog walking business called GreenPaws.

President and Dog/Planet Lover, Linda Chep, states, “GreenPaws was cultivated out of the sheer love for dogs and the planet. We hope that our business can educate people on how to help themselves and their dogs go 'green', as well as contribute to the betterment of our environment through our services."

What makes GreenPaws “green”? Every one of their Dog Walkers has signed an “aGREENment” vowing to practice sustainability in their daily lives. In addition, they also use high quality “green” pet products such a biodegradable baggies, recyclable toys and leases constructed out of organic materials.

Unfortunately, most dog owners and walkers are still using plastic bags to clean up after their dogs without knowing that, in a landfill, a plastic bag takes up to 100 years to decompose. In comparison, a biodegradable bag only takes 40 days to decompose.

It is well known that the general public has to be more conscious about its effect on the environment. People have to make an effort in leading a more “green” lifestyle. Whether it be turning of their tap while brushing their teeth to starting a “green” dog walking business, no act is too small to have a positive impact on the environment. Humans and dogs cannot exist without a planet.

 About GreenPaws:

Just like how most brilliant ideas are born, Linda Chep came up with GreenPaws while perusing the lively streets of Toronto on her vintage Dutch bike… and, well, after completing a development project on a film about sustainability. Not everything comes out of thin air.

Hours later and with the help of her good friends, GreenPaws was born. Servicing Toronto’s downtown core,and the Beaches, GreenPaws treats your dog as if it were its own by providing a fun, professional, and, most importantly, “green” dog walking experience.
