Wednesday Wag Out!

Doggy Soap

I am going to get a bath tomorrow, but unfortunately Mom doesn't use a cool bar of soap to clean me. When I found this soap, I told her that I wanted her to buy it for me and that I if she did I would not complain about getting a bath. Mom told me that she is only buying a 'get Stubby really clean' soap and I told her that this soap is the ticket to getting a clean pug.

This eco-friendly dog soap is all natural and is formulated with flea and tick repelling essentail oils. Maybe Mom needs to use this stuff because she is the most tick phobic person alive. With all the creepy, crawly things that Mom is exposed to on the beach and in the jungle, ticks are the one thing that she fears the most. Go figure.

Listen to the list of ingredients in this little paw print soap bar: organic vegetable glycerin, organic soy milk, eucalyptus, tea tree, lavender, peppermint, cedarwood, rosemary essential oils, vitamin e, organic avocado oil, organic grape seed oil, organic coconut oil. I am going to be the best smelling pug in the county! Head on over to http://www.dirtybirdy.com/ to get some cool soap for the puggy in your life.

Skoy Cloth

Mom got one of these at the Green Fest and is loving it. I told her about the cloth last year, but she didn't listen to me. Now, she is telling everyone that she discovered it and I am not getting any credit. Thanks a lot Mom.

Dad uses so many paper towels that it drives Mom crazy. The Skoy cloth is like a paper towel/cleaning rag alternative. The manufacturer claims that using it is equivalent to using 15 rolls of paper towels. Wow! Imagine saving so many trees by using just one little cloth.

The Skoy cloth can be washed in the dishwasher or the washing maching. This is why it lasts so long. It also dries quickly so bacteria does not have a chance to move in and it is 100% biodegradable because it is made from natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp. Water-based colors and inks give it its pretty look and it will break down completely within 4 weeks in a composter. Every household needs a Skoy cloth or two so get yours today at http://www.earthfriendlyshoppe.com/.

Organic Cotton Produce Bags

A lot of things make Mom crazy, but one way to truly push her over the edge is to use plastic produce bags. When Mom is in the store and sees someone putting a bunch of bananas in a plastic produce bag it is all she can do to keep the smoke from steaming out of her ears and from screaming at the top of her lungs. She has been known to get physically ill in stores due to the unnecessary use of plastic produce bags.

Dad was one such culprit. He would come home from the store and every single piece of produce would be in its single use plastic bag. She finally convinced him to use these great little organic cotton bags and he hasn't looked back. The cashier can see through the mesh, they are compact and lightweight, washable, fair labor/fair trade produced, and best of all reuseable. Yeah!

You can even use these bags to hold items other than produce. They are truly multi-purpose. You will want several of these handy bags when you do your produce shopping, whether you are at the store or at the farmer's market. They come in small and large sizes, so check them out today at http://www.reusablebags.com/.

Ohhhh Stubby! Just when I thought we saw eye to eye on everything, I come over here and you're promotin' a SOAP?! You, a wonderfully stinky puggie?!?!

This is upsetting and I REALLY hope my Momma doesn't see this post... She LOVES for me to smell 'good'. Ick!

:)

Stubby said...

Ohh Pearly Poo - The soap was Mom's idea! I told her that my blogging pals would not be happy with me but she threatened me with, well I cannot tell you with what.

I love being stinky and I am so upset that I have to get a bath in a few hours. Tell your momma that my blog is down for maintenance for a few days so that she doesn't see the soap.

I am going to remind Mom that this is MY blog and that doggy soap doesn't belong on it!

I hate baths. Lucky doesn't mind them. We shall have to look into the soap. Mom and dad use the reusable bags that the grocery store sold. You get 5 cents off your groceries for every bag you use. The trick is remembering them.

Hi Coco! How could I ever forget about you? I know that you're out there even if you don't post.

I am so honored to receive an award from you! I don't know what I have done to deserve it, but I thank you - you have made my day!

Hey Roxy - Thanks for stopping by. My bath yesterday was cancelled due to the weather, but unforunately it hasn't been cancelled permanently. I am going to get a bath today come hell or high water!

I'm so glad to hear that your parents use reusable bags when they shop. The trick to remembering them is to leave them in the car. Mom always stuffs one in her purse too so that she is never without one.

WOW...that looks like some good smelling soap!!! Mom says it looks like some of that stuff she loves to get from LUSH!

Ok...speaking of mom...she's totally flipping about about having you visit because your mom will probably have a heart attack when she sees a lot of the "non green" shenanigans going on around here!

Have a good weekend and good luck with your B.A.T.H.!!!

Love,
S-Dog

Salinger - Mom was interested in LUSH but I did some investigating and I don't think they are good for her. As usual, Mom has me to thank for well being.

Tell your mom to stop flipping out about the non-green stuff. Mom isn't totally green and she doesn't expect everyone else to be either, at least not yet. Mom likes to say that we are a work in progress, but I think she means herself and not me.

My bath was awful!!! I am totally clean, but I can't guarantee that I will still be clean when I get to your place. Keep your paws crossed!
