Eco Pets: Upcycled Homes

Cat suitcase bed upcycled

We love to pamper our pets. We also love to live green. Who says we can't do both? 

This week's tips will help you make your pet's lifestyle as eco-friendly as yours.

Tip #2: Turn garbage into luxury pet homes 

Instead of throwing away your bulky old computer, turn it into a pet haven! Some people like to make aquariums from old Macs, others prefer to transform their computer into a feline bungalow. An easier option would be to take old suitcases and fill them with worn blankets for your furry pets. Whatever upcycling method you choose, it's bound to please your animal friends! 

This guy (in the video below) decided to upcycle his broken XBOX 360 into a nano-reef aquarium full of corals, shrimp, and snails.
