"Bill and his friends Leslie and Julianna discover that even our cats and dogs leave big carbon footprints! Bill explores the truth about the environmental impact of dog poop, including the fact that dogs leave deposits full of microorganisms that enter our water sources. Landfills are full of plastic bags of dog waste deposited by the few owners who clean up after their dogs. Pet food contains chemicals and waste animal products and the demand for kitty litter results in mining topsoil from American grasslands. Meanwhile 'fishing methods' that satisfy the demand for tropical fish have ruined coral reefs"--Publisher's description.
