Pet Safe Cleaning Products #FightToxins
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Millennial Central for Seventh Generation. I received a promotional item and product samples as a thank you for participating.
Let’s face it, our pets are adorable! Whether it is your dogs wagging tail when you get home, or cat’s soft purring while you watch a movie, our pets are a big part of our lives.
But what if we were endangering them without even realizing it?

Dog licking a young child’s face:4/5
Dog licking the cat:5/5
Dog licking the kitchen floor: DANGEROUS/5
How many times have you dropped a tasty morsel on the floor that your dog has immediately scooped up? If you’re anything like me it is pretty often! However, along with that tasty treat of people food, they may also be exposed to toxic products you use to clean.
Think about it just because you are done mopping the floor does not meant the chemicals you used are gone. Did you know common cleaning products contain over 80,000 unique chemical compounds? What is even scarier is that less than 10% of these have been tested by the Environmental Protection Agency! The ones that have been tested him been linked to cancer, birth defects, and even learning disabilities.
If that is what it can do to humans, think how much more sensitive our fur babies and their little bodies are!
My dog, Carmella, has Chrohn’s disease. Something that may give make another dog slightly ill could send her to the Vet for dehydration.
So how do I get my home squeaky clean and keep her safe? Lately I’ve been using Seventh Generation products. They have a wide variety of products that I can use both on surfaces and fabrics. I love that their products are derived from natural plants.
Won’t you join me in fighting these toxins in our homes? To help lobby Congress to update the Toxic Substances Control Act. It has not been updated in over 30 years!!
