The majority of pets owners have either a cat or a dog or used to at some point in their lives. Cats are typically easier to go eco-friendly with because of the types of toys that they play with. Today I have some products to show you that will not only help entertain your feline friend but also help the environment out as well. Catnip toys can be quite a catch with cats :). A friend of mine who used to have five cats at one time used catnip toys for them all of the time. Take a look…

First off, I hope all of the Dads out there had a fantastic Father’s Day weekend! Second off, here are the current results from last week’s poll:

Based upon your votes there are more of you who are giving eco gifts compared to anything else, which is based on the number of votes received. That’s a great thing because we all should help those around us who need help with getting their foot on the ground to go green.

Readers, something amazing happened when I was doing my grocery shopping at Wal-Mart today. I stopped down the dog aisle looking for something in particular for my faithful, though often a moody, dog. Unfortunately, they did not have what I was looking for. However, on my way out I did notice something well worth mentioning to all of you, and could not wait to share it. I came across some odor removers that are eco-friendly put out by a company called Clean + Green.

While the products that I found were for dogs, this brand does carry odor removers/cleaners for various pets, so make sure to check out a Wal-Mart near you whenever you get a chance. What really astonished me, though, is that this brand puts out a product for wood/laminate/tile floors aside from just carpet. The price range that I saw these odor removers/cleaners at was between $6.00 and $7.00 each. Every store more than likely will vary in price. Here are a few of the products that I found by Clean + Green at my Wal-Mart, which can also be easily purchased online as well:

Clean + Green Carpet Odor Eliminator, Cleaner and Stain Remover For Dogs

Eco-Destroy Your Dog Or Cat’s Fleas With Shampoo

poll on green cleaning products

It appears that the vote was a tie to a certain degree. Both Palmolive and Clorox are decent commercial line product brands. Personally speaking, I love Clorox’s toilet bowl cleaner and Palmolive’s dishwasher detergent.

A lot of people complain that they have a lot of residues, etc. left by Palmolive’s dishwasher detergent even though they are using brand new high-end dishwashers. I don’t own a new high-end dishwasher, just a regular one that I’ve had for many, many years. I’ve been using Palmolive’s dishwasher soap for roughly 6 months and have not experienced anything like residue, etc. A while back I did notice that someone online mentioned they added a little vinegar to the dishwasher soap, and that helped out greatly. My apologies but I don’t know who provided this tip online.
