Introducting Eco Pooch, a line of pet friendly grooming products from the makers of Live Clean.
In keeping with the current trends which indicate dogs are the most popular pets of choice, and the fact that North Americans spend close to $11 billion a year on pet products, it’s no
wonder that Live Clean has ventured into the dog grooming market. And, what better way to show our love and devotion for dogs than by showering them with products that are environmentally safe.
Moreover, there are a number of environmental concerns that affect pets as much as humans. Studies conducted by the Environmental Working Group, indicate that pets have higher levels of toxins in their bodies than humans. They found numerous toxins in pets, including chemicals released from non-stick pans and metal, phthalates from plastic bowls and toys, and toxins from fire retardants in bedding, furniture, house dust, and food. The same study found that dogs have a higher risk of cancer along with numerous other behavioral and reproductive problems.
As we are all probably aware the “green” movement isn’t just limited to people and Eco Pooch is a great example underscoring an emerging area in the pet grooming market. The ingredients are: SLS/Sulphate Free, DEA Free, Paraben Free, and Phthalate Free, all of which are known to be harmful chemicals that can cause chemical sensitivity, irritation, asthma, and other respiratory, immunological and neurological conditions. As a result, the products do not contain any harsh preservatives or unnecessary additives, and the formulations are enriched with certified organic botanicals, and only plant sourced or non-petrochemical ingredients are used. The end result: grooming products that are safe and chemically free for dogs, people and the environment.
Eco Pooch by Live Clean touches on a number of important newsworthy ideas which include the environmental focus, lifestyle trends, and the fact that the eco dog business is a growing market. As well, Eco Pooch makes for a great Holiday gift item for those that cherish and adore their dogs.
