Do you need help controlling litter box odors or keeping an eye on your pets while you are gone?
Clear The Air would like to share some of the best technology for you, your pets, and the environment.
When you think about technology that can save you time or make your life easier, tech for your pets is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. But there are many options available that can help you reach your goals while taking care of your pets and the environment. Here are a few ideas that all savvy pet owners can benefit from trying out.
Keep Your Furry Friend in Your Sights
Most people who have dogs consider their canine to be a part of their family, and the same sentiment often applies to cats too. So it’s understandable that one of the main fears of having a pet is them somehow getting away and you not being able to find them. You can easily put this fear to rest by using a GPS tracker to keep tabs on your pet’s whereabouts.
The Paw Tracker is an intuitive, lightweight tracker that can be clipped directly onto your furry pal’s collar. The tracking system is linked to your smartphone and you can quickly see the location of your dog or cat anytime you get concerned. Make the whole system environmentally friendly by clipping the Paw Tracker to an eco-friendly collar like one from Earth Dog and by using your smartphone of choice.
Freshen and Clear The Air
Ask any cat lover what the biggest downside is to owning these lovable companions and they’ll almost always answer, “litter boxes.” Although a necessary part of having a cat, the smell is unpleasant and cleaning them can be a hassle. The good news is technology has produced a solution.
Try the Litter-Robot, an automatic self-cleaning litter box that eliminates the need to scoop out the clumps in the litter box yourself. It helps you save pounds of litter and will also significantly reduce how much trash you throw out each year. Of course this doesn’t solve the odor problem, so you’ll want to couple the Litter-Robot with the Clear the Air Cat Urine Odor Remover Bundle. Our product is non-toxic and biodegradable, and therefore safe for the planet. Using these two items in tandem ensures that you will have a much more pleasant experience with the least fun aspect of cat ownership and the environment will benefit at the same time.
Upgrade Your Food and Water System
The daily chore of feeding your kitties and pooches can sometimes be difficult. You get stuck at work late one day, and they’re meowing and howling by the time you get home. Or you need to go on a short trip but have no one who can come by and refill your pets’ food and water bowls. Or maybe you’ve been told by your veterinarian that your furry best friend needs to lose a little weight for her health. Once again, technology to the rescue.
Have you considered an automatic pet feeder? The Automatic Pet Feeder from Toppy Pets is made from eco-friendly plastic and takes care of your creatures’ most basic needs when you’re not able to. Simply want to slow down your dog’s eating time, and help her get a little weight off? Try the Simply Pets A-Maze-In-A-Bowl Slow Feed Dog Bowl, which is made from eco-friendly bamboo fibers and helps manage canine obesity.
Whatever your goals and needs are for your cats and dogs, there’s likely a device that can help you achieve them. Give these products and systems a try and feel good about the benefits to you, your furry children and the environment.

Mother’s Day is May 10 and Clear The Air would like to share these purrfect ways to celebrate all mothers!
Purrfect Mother’s Day Ideas: Pet-Friendly Activities
With Mother’s Day around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about the special women in your life who are mothers. And if you know a dog or cat mom, she deserves to celebrate Mother’s Day, too, though it can be challenging to find pet-friendly activities for these mothers and their fur babies. Here are a few pet-appropriate ideas for treating pet parents in celebration of Mother’s Day, in fur-friendly style.
Pet-Centric Bistro Lunch
There are many establishments that cater to animal owners and welcome patrons of the four-legged variety. The website BringFido.com allows you to search for a dog-friendly places in your area, whether a pub, sidewalk cafe, coffee shop or trendy eatery, the fur babies are welcomed at an outdoor table.
Booking a reservation at one of these restaurants will guarantee a good time for mom and her wet-nosed companion. Mimosas and Milkbones, anyone?
Dinner and a Furry Flick
As quaint as a furry bistro may be, finding pet-friendly dining establishments can be a tedious task in certain areas, so an alternate plan is to treat your pet mama to a night in. Create a pizza that both mom and fur baby can enjoy. Use organic flour, instant yeast, salt, organic sugar, extra virgin olive oil, and warm water, to make a pizza dough safe for dog consumption. Top it off with dog-safe toppings, like spinach, shredded carrots, artichoke hearts, pineapple, green beans, broccoli or sweet potato. Avoid onions and mushrooms, which do not agree with the puppy constitution.
As for the film, the most recommended movies to enjoy with your pets, according to PetMD, are Scooby Doo, Best in Show, 101 Dalmatians, Lady and the Tramp, and coming in at the top of the list, Homeward Bound. Cuddle up with mom and pooch and let the laughter, barking and meowing commence.
Dog Park Picnic
If you’re not in the mood for a bistro, but still want to get parent and pet out of the house for the special day, plan a trip to an animal-friendly park in the area. The proud mama can let her babies run around before settling down for a picnic meal of packaged gourmet sandwiches from a local deli and freshly homemade dog food for your four-legged companions.
To make this outing extra special, give the gift of edible delectables. Decadent chocolates or chocolate-covered strawberries not only make a great gift, they’re also the perfect dessert to top-off an outdoor picnic meal. Don’t forget to sign the card from both you and Fido.
Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate those special ladies who pour love into everything they do, who give more than they receive, and who always think of their loved ones first, whether those loved ones have two legs or four. So make sure those caring mothers get a little special treatment of their own this year, from you and the fur babies.

Go Green for St. Patrick’s Day! Clear the Air would like to share some healthy habits for you and the environment.
When people think about living a more healthy and eco-friendly life, they often come up with ideas that focus on one of the two areas. For example, while making sure to recycle paper, glass and metal that comes into your home is a wonderful way to reduce your carbon footprint, it probably won’t impact your health. In the same vein, it is healthy to head out for a brisk walk in the morning, but the Earth probably won’t be impacted much by it. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways that you can have a positive impact on both your health and the environment at the same time.
Switch to Organic Food
As anyone who has made the switch from regular to organic fruits and veggies knows pretty well, there is a pretty noticeable and positive difference in taste between the two. Plus, the antioxidant levels in organically-raised food tend to be more powerful and impactful on your health than food that is grown with pesticides and other chemicals, claims Organic Facts. Research conducted on organic milk also found that it contains more antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins.
In addition to being better for your body, organic food is kind to Mother Earth. Instead of spraying toxic chemicals on crops, the food is raised in an eco-friendly and gentle fashion.
Buy an Electric or Hybrid Vehicle
If your current vehicle is starting to show its age, check out some of the new electric or hybrid models for an eco-friendly option. Hybrid and plug-in cars reduce the amount of toxic emissions released into the atmosphere, explains the U.S. Department of Energy.
Driving a car that does not belch out black smoke is better for the air that you breathe, and can reduce allergies and other breathing problems like asthma. But, electric and hybrid cars can impact your health in other ways. For instance, they typically have better fuel economy than traditional cars, so you will have more money left in your bank account (and you will put less gas into the air because you fill up less often). This alone can help reduce your stress levels and allow you to spend that money on healthier products or save it for later.
You can also use Earth’s Care Odor Eliminator Bags as a green alternative to remove odors in your car, boat, and home. Earth Care is made from an all natural mineral. It is non toxic, non hazardous, non-caustic, and biodegradable. It can safely be used around pets and children. It is safe to sprinkle in your pet’s cage; it will not hurt your pet even if eaten.

Look around your home. Would you call it eco-friendly? Or, do you have some nagging doubts about what you buy, how you maintain your home and how you impact the environment? The following are just a few reasons why you should go green at home and how to do it.
Why Go Green at Home?
You probably know that recycling keeps things out of landfills, reduces costs and materials in manufacturing and reduces pollution. And you know that turning out the lights and not letting the water run before you get in the shower are actions that save energy. But, is it really making a difference?
Manon Verchot, reporting for Treehugger, explains that every choice you make has an impact on the environment, on yourself and on your neighbors. Choices about the food you eat, the personal care products you use, the way you get around and the kind of energy you use affect your personal health and the health of the planet. Just one reason is a good reason to go green at home. For example, a computer can run for three hours on the amount of energy saved from recycling one aluminum can.
How to Go Green at Home
If you’re not recycling already, it’s a good way to start. If your community offers curb-side recycling, this is the easiest way to start. If it doesn’t, research where the nearest recycling facility is and what materials they accept. Set up your household to recycle paper, cardboard, glass, plastic and aluminum with organized bins.
Look beyond your garbage for recycling opportunities. Instead of throwing old drapes away when it’s time for new ones, look for ways to reuse the material or look for textile recyclers. Eartheasy reminds you to look at packaging when you buy products, to reduce junk mail and to recycle locally.
Use Less Energy at Home
The U.S. Energy Information Association reports that heating and cooling are no longer the major sources of U.S. home energy use. Homes built since 2000 are 30 percent bigger than older homes, but use about the same amount of energy. However, appliance, electronics and lighting use are increasing.
Duke Energy recommends looking at your home’s cooling systems and practices to reduce your energy consumption.
Start by installing energy-efficient windows and blocking heat caused by sunlight by decorating with drapes or solar screens. You also can plant trees and shrubs on your home’s sunny side to help create shade. Additionally, walk around your home and reduce how many things are plugged in when not in use, and use power strips to avoid energy drains.
Make More Changes
If you look around your home and see room for more eco-friendly improvements, make the necessary changes. Some improvements to consider include using green products like insulation made from recycled materials, used furniture from eco-conscious manufacturers and paints and stains with fewer or no chemicals. Switch to sustainable practices like composting, repurposing materials and using water-saving appliances like a recirculating water pump and low-flow toilet.

Here’s a wonderful story from the San Diego Humane Society about Katie, a.k.a. Madeline, a Tortoiseshell kitten.
Katie’s mom writes:
I adopted a beautiful female Tortoiseshell kitten from the San Diego Humane Society last October 23. Her name there at the SDHS was Madeline. I had just lost my precious 15 year old Manx kitty (Maggie) two months earlier and was ready to give another pet a home. I searched for what seemed a long time before I met Madeline, and she agreed I was the one to take her home.
Madeline was one of the very first kittens I met there, as her little home was located in the front, inside the Gift Center, along with some other gorgeous kittens. Her name has since been changed to Katie, but we’ll call her Madeline here, as that was how everyone there at SDHS knew her. I could not believe how quickly she made herself right at home that first evening after departing the carrier. It was if she had been here a while and had already adapted. No time was wasted, as she wanted to play. Madeline has brought so much joy and love into my life.
Madeline is just as described on her profile adoption intro. She has a ton of personality, is very friendly and social, loves people and loves to cuddle, when she has time and is ready. She is very independent. She loves to play fetch and her favorite activity is when we play with her cat catcher teaser toy. Anyone who comes to visit me is greeted with affection and excitement by Katie.
Thank you to the SDHS for everything you do for the animals and also thank you to all the Volunteers and foster families for all they do in socializing, readying and loving the kittens as they await adoption.
