Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

The inconvenient truth is that we’re not always kind to Mother Nature. Most of us however, are doing whatever we can to reduce, reuse and recycle. In curtailing our impact on our planet, why not minimize the carbon paw print of our pets as well.

Annie’s Sweatshop (www.AnniesSweatshop.com) offers sustainable and handcrafted notions that are unique and charming. Her Natty Necktie Collars are made from recycled silk neckties. Your dog will look preppie sharp, especially if he has the matching Natty Necktie Leash. And if you exchange Fluffy’s old collar or leash, you’ll get a rebate towards your new purchase.

Dogs seem to love socks, the more aromatic the better. Fulfill their sock hankerings with the Weiner Dog hand stitched from two repurposed socks. All of Annie’s products are made to order specially for your pooch, so you can be assured of a one-of-a-kind fashion accessory.
