MIBO's Going Green

In our efforts to help in conserve our environment we are adopting the following approaches:
  • Your plastic bags that are used to contain your dog's belongings will be used to line the waste bin. We will return you reusable paper bags.
  • Food that is provided in it's original packaging or plastic baggies (both not advisable) will be measured out for your dog's stay and unused portions will be store in it's original packaging sealed tight with rubber bands. We will only use the measured out portions, according to your feeding instructions. If the food in it's original packaging spoils, or gets infested, we will not be held responsible. You are highly recommended store your dog's food in labelled (rodent-proof) containers... ice cream tubs and old take away containers are some examples.
  • We prefer to use the wall fans and not the airconditioning where possible (that's about 99.5% of the time).
  • The lights are off unless there are people in the room or visitors. And we use energy saving bulbs too! That's why viewings are by appointment only... if not, the place always looks closed :)
  • We drive out as little as possible. So outings, walks, swims, transportation and running of errands are planned in advance to minimise lag time in between.
  • Newspapers are used to pick up poo and designated potty areas. We do not use pee (wee wee) pads.
  • We use Durapet and WetNoz stainless steel bowls for feeding. They are indestructible and have a long life span.
  • We reuse envelopes... so, where necessary, you will get your invoices and change in them (and know who we pay our bills to!)
  • We use charmois towels to dry the dogs after showers. This minimises any blowdrying... in fact, we air dry the dogs.
  • The rain helps to wash our backyard. But when it's high and dry, we reuse the water after we have mopped the floors.
  • We welcome donations of old toys (dog type or otherwise), beds, containers (glass and plastic), food, vitamins, supplements, etc. If your dog does not want or need it, we can put it to good use.

Your understanding and support to save our Earth is greatly appreciated!

We feel that this will give your dogs (and mine) a brighter future... and that is a great reason to wag your tails!
