One of the healthiest and greenest swap-outs you can make for your family pets is to switch the type of bowl they eat and drink from. While a plastic bowl may be cheap and durable, it can get scratched up easily; those scratches can harbor illness-causing bacteria, plus the plastic is difficult to recycle. Instead, invest in stainless steel bowls. They are durable, easily recyclable and can be sterilized with just warm, soapy water, or even tossed into the dishwasher.
