Welcome to The Zero-Waste Pet!

Hello, friends! I am so glad you’re here!

This website has been a long, long time in the making.

Let me introduce myself: My name is Maggie, and I’m the dog-crazy cat lady behind the keyboard. I’ve written a blog about mostly dogs and a smidge of cats at for nearly 10 years. That’s ancient in blog-world.

Animals, particularly dogs, have been a part of my life forever.

When I was a precocious kiddo at St. Ann’s School, I wrote a play about recycling that the nuns let me stage with the other kids in my class. Since then, I’ve been passionate about eco-friendly living.

Now, I’ve combined the two into this project, The Zero-Waste Pet.

I researched zero-waste living like crazy and found that pet care was a huge gap. Why? Because many zero-wasters think pets are too much of a drain on the environment to be a part of a zero-waste lifestyle.

I disagree.

So, I poured tons of time and effort into pulling together an ebook with a zillion extra resources. I also created a simple, easy-to-follow 7-day email challenge with actionable tips you can implement immediately and have a giant impact on the planet. You can sign up for that here.

I’m thrilled we’re connected. I’d love to meet YOU! Feel free to leave a comment anytime introducing yourself, or if you prefer email you can catch me at

Thanks so much for being here! I can’t wait to walk this path with you!
