When you are thinking about your household pets in wanting to go green and toxic free. It's important to really think about the different product choices that you are going through for children and it's actually very similar. So if you thinking about shampoos and food. Always choose better and non toxic options for your pets as well. So in the case of food, you want to try to choose, all natural hormone free organic if possible in terms of toys and plastic products. Try to make sure they are BPA free and filate free. In terms of Shampoos and personal care again look for products that are free from synthetic fragrance and also are par bin free. With pets you also want to consider the outdoors and the garden. So if you have a garden make sure that you are using, chemical free fertilizers and avoiding pesticides. Your pets will be out there and running around and being exposed, just as your kids would be. Specifically for pets, you really want to avoid the products that have harsh chemicals for flees. Again shampoos, flea collars and different powders. They often have very harsh chemicals that are, while they might kill the flees, they can also create health issues for your pets.
