Purchasing eco-friendly products for birds is a great way to treat your feathered friends to a treat without harming the environment. The following are the top five eco-friendly products for birds:
1. Recycled hopper feeders provide a great way to give birds nutrition while protecting the environment. There are two styles available which allows you to purchase the feeder that is best for your home. These feeders are constructed from recycled poly-lumber that has a guarantee that it will never crack. They include removable seed screens that prevent rot and keep seed fresh. The top is hinged and is able to be completely flipped over which allows for easy re-filling of seed. These are available in two styles: the 2-sided hopper which will save space and still allow plenty of birds to be fed, and the double -decker, which provided two layers. Both styles can be left on a table, mounted on a platform, or mounted on a post. The 2-sided feeder costs $63.99 and the double-decker feeder costs $149.99.
