Please Your Pup and Mother Nature With Reusable Potty Pads

City dwellers without yards will love the convenience and eco-friendly nature of EnviroPads.

Disposable potty pads for pets are pretty convenient, but they aren’t exactly earth friendly. So if you’re in the market for an indoor potty product, reusable goods are the way to go. Purchase Green, a major distributor of artificial grass and turf supplies, has durable stuff that eco-conscious pet parents can feel comfortable using.

The highly effective (phew!) EnviroPads come in four different sizes and are just as absorbent as disposable ones. They’re washable up to a whopping 300 times, so they last long enough to be cost effective as well — prices range from $107.99 to $157.99. Pads aren’t for everyone of course, but anyone living in a high-rise apartment building with a pup who’s prone to accidents might benefit from having a little turf within paw’s reach. Plus, the grass-like design is easier on the eyes than some other more utilitarian-looking products out there.

Purchase Green sells the turf with packs of two pads, so you always have one available for your pooch. Used pads should be doused in water and soap or vinegar. The turf itself can be cleaned with water, but Purchase Green also offers cleaners that are non-toxic, biodegradable, and hypoallergenic.
