Earth Day, April 22, always makes us think about ways we can be greener. When it comes to our cats, it’s getting easier to "go green,” as manufacturers bring more environmentally friendly cat products to the market allowing prices to fall.

But it’s not all about saving some green (both trees and money) with cats: Eco-friendly cat products are often safer and healthier for your cats, too. So this Earth Day, why not check out some new green products and make your cat an Eco Kitty?
SmartyKat Cat Scratchers
These cat scratchers are stylish and sustainable. Made from a recycled material, they are recyclable, compostable and biodegradable.SmartyKat's hanging scratcher is particularly interesting, because cats naturally want to stretch their paws up to scratch. And, starting at just $20, they are cheaper than your leather sofa or designer drapes.
