How to Make a Difference - Cover

Can I feed crickets to my pet? If you’re unsure whether a climate-friendly diet is actually healthy for your pet – worry not, we’ve got you covered. 

In Episode 19 we recap our favourite climate-friendly pet food solutions and we speak with Andrea Schmidt, a veterinarian with more than 10 years of experience, who gives us some basic tips on keeping our pets healthy. 

Of course, pet parenting is not just about pet food, which is why we also give you a few non-food tips on how you can be a more sustainable pet parent. We also speak with Chantal Saelen, the managing director of Moderna Products, a company producing pet supplies like bowls, pet carriers, and litter boxes. 

This episode builds on Episode 15, Episode 16, Episode 17, and Episode 18, where we speak in-depth about the climate impact of pets and more climate-friendly pet food options. 


In our article The most sustainable pet food brands around the world for 2021, we put together an extensive list of where you can find more sustainable pet food alternatives all around the world.
