Perhaps prompted by all of the pet food recall announcements over the years, more and more companies and individuals have flooded the market with all natural and organic choices. For pet owners, these alternative foods and treats from companies and entrepreneurs have been a welcome addition from the mass produced products that seem unable to comply with standard FDA rules and regulations.
According to the Pet Food Institute, in 2003 U.S. consumers spent more than $13 billion on cat and dog food, a figure that has increased to over $18 billion in 2011.

Going green is the order of the day; pet owners who love giving their pets the best in health and lifestyle, settle for none other than natural food and environmentally friendly pet products. Production of the usual pet toys use up energy and there is toxic waste by products.

Organic pet products care for our natural surrounding. It takes minimum time to degrade and blend with the natural elements of the soil compared to plastic alternatives that might take hundreds to thousands of years for decomposition. Moreover, the biodegradable products are obtained from agro produce. For instance, they are usually made of natural rubber, bamboo and rice husk, obtained as a by-product farming where that would be thrown away.
