I love animals, and recently discovered ways that pets can help us “go green”.

Check out the latest issue of the The Free Weekly for great articles on pets, including the latest Making Ripples column.  Want more information about how hamsters can generate electricity?  Here’s the link to a few videos explaining how the process works, including how a hamster wheel can charge your cell phone, and a hamster ball that can vacuum your carpeting.  Amazing stuff!  So how does this relate to Ripples’ work?  We’re considering adding a bunny mower, aquaponics bed(s), hamster charging station and other animal-related features to our home, rather than simply keeping lots of pets without considering how they might help our mission to live a sustainable lifestyle.  I’m sure it’s more fun to be in a bunny mower or running around the house in a hamster ball, than living in a small cage in the basement.  These green changes can improve the quality of life of our pets, too!
