#1 – Lilly Brush
Have you ever stopped to think about how you remove unwanted pet hair from your home? Usually that happens with lint rollers, the hair-filled sticky paper being tossed afterwards, right? Or you’re stuck vacuuming if that doesn’t work. The Lilly Brush pet hair remover was made to save waste and electricity, along with being a long-lasting product that won’t end up in the landfill any time soon. The brush replaces the need for lint rollers, vaccuming, and you can even use it on your dog! Not satisfied and decide you want to return it? The company donates returns to shelters instead of throwing them away. Get it here.

#6 – Dog Rocks
Is your pup yellowing your lawn? Help your pup be more green with all natural Dog Rocks. This rock, native to Australia, filters out impurities from water such as tin, ammonia and nitrates. These impurities are usually passed out through urine, and when grass comes in contact with these elements it results in urine burn on grass, resulting in a dead, yellow patch. Dog Rocks give four legged friends a cleaner source of water, while eliminating urine burn on grass. Without the impurities in the water, Dog Rocks actually help dog fertilize the lawn. Get it here.
