/PRNewswire/ -- Is your dog the most eco-friendly dog in the country? Can you prove it? The environmental website Mother Nature Network http://www.mnn.com/ is looking for the fabulous photos of four-legged environmentalists - from Akitas to Yorkies to pound pups and every breed in between - doing their part to minimize their carbon paw prints.
The winner will be named Green Dog of the Year, be featured on the home page of MNN.com, and win a year's supply of Eukanuba's Naturally Wild Formula dog food. "Pet lovers are always taking photos of their furry friends," said Emily Murphy, Managing Editor at MNN, who finds creative ways to reduce her own pup's impact on the Earth. "Green dogs enjoy the outdoors, use natural toys and pet-care products, and, if they are so inclined, sport organic clothing. Some of the greenest dogs are adopted from animal rescue groups and shelters."
Send in your best dog pictures no later than February 12, showing MNN how your pup is a friend to the environment. Still not sure what that means? Check out the Green Dog of the Year galleries at http://www.mnn.com/green-dog-of-the-year-contest for some inspiration and direction.
Atlanta-based Mother Nature Network, launched in 2009 by celebrated environmentalist and dog-lover Chuck Leavell, longtime keyboardist for the legendary Rolling Stones, offers the latest in environmental news and encourages ecologically responsible behavior. MNN is intended to help the average person - whether you're going green or have been there for years - figure out which choices to make, a one-stop guide to greening your daily routine as big or as small as you want.
