We are tearing this planet apart – there’s too many of us, we’re practically walking (or, should we say, driving) pollution and the cause of global warming. Well, we’re trying to make up for it and make an everyday life a little bit more sustainable.

It doesn’t mean that we don’t care about the planet, but we simply care much more about ourselves. That can be seen in the case of one of the most eco-friendly parts of sharing economy – the bike-sharing.

Maybe the main reason for this lies in the fact that we are not sure about the size of the impact that bike sharing has on a climate change. Well, let’s take a look what every turn of the pedal brings.

And if you want your children to live cleaner and better, you should raise them in an earth-friendly manner. They have to be aware of the fact that the planet is not an unlimited resource and that everyone should start ‘eco’ actions in order to make things right.

The fact that dogs’ bodies are much closer to the ground means they are more exposed to dirt than their owners. So, if we have to deal with this problem, can we at least make it as natural and eco-friendly as possible? Most definitely.
