Welcome to our new feature here on Tree Hugging Pets. It's the Pick 5 Cheat Sheet!
What is the Pick 5 Cheat Sheet?
Our Pick 5 Cheat Sheet is a quick reference quide that will feature products that are eco-friendly, safe, healthy and/or organic. Products will include toys, foods, treats, chews, beds, outfits, blankets, shampoos, spritzes and the list goes on and on.
Why only five?
We have chosen to feature only five of each product, because sometimes too many options can be overwhelming. This way, we will be doing all the research for you and weeding out the one's that might not be the very best.
How do we decide which is best?
There is no formula but we will only be listing the ones we feel fit into the following categories: eco-friendly, safe, organic, healthy and made in the USA (if we happen to find a fabulous item that is made in another country, we will consider it for the list, but let you know that it's not made in the USA). We will not be listing any products we do not like or wouldn't use on our furkids. If from time to time we happen to find and really like more than five, we will definitley include them. If you have found one that is not on our list and you think it should be considered, please let us know and we will check it out.
How often will a new Pick 5 be released?
Our goal is to add a new Pick 5 Cheat Sheet every month.
