Recently, though I decided to give BarkBox another try. Not for my older dogs, but for the new puppies.
The last email I saw was telling me I could join the destroyer club. Here is the link to there promotion.
The rampant consumerism of America is a little disgusting, most of the time. On rare occasions, where the wonton waste is right in your face, it's nauseating. All these toys you let your dog tear up go in the trash. Or maybe you are composting them, but I doubt it. They go into a plastic bag, that goes into a hole in the ground where it lives for hundreds of years. So where do you think we are going to live when all out land is filled with the plastic trashbags? More to the point, where are we going to live when our land is filled with our dogs discarded toys?
Shame on you BarkBox. Champion of homeless pet donations. Warrior for quality time with pets. Creator of endless amounts of garbage. I can make a pull toy from an old t-shirt. I can get a cheap stuffed toy from the thrift store. Or I can teach my dog to fetch and not create any garbage. Except perhaps for the balls we left in the woods because the were in a puddle to deep and gross for me to fish them out of. It's way past time for us to look at our own actions and change our effect on the environment.
