Shawn Styles discovers his dogs' carbon "pawprints"

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - We humans know we have quite a big impact on the world around us. But did you know that our pets have quite an effect on the environment too?

In this Earth 8 video report, Shawn Styles spent the day learning about the carbon footprint -- or rather, pawprints his two dogs leave behind, and the steps you can take to help your pets go green.

The Spring Valley Unleashed by Petco store located at 8810 Jamacha Blvd., is hosting a "Green Day Celebration" from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Food vendors will sample its natural products to all hungry pets, as well as talk about the importance of giving pets a "green" and healthy diet.
