Green Your Life: Organic Dog Shampoo: Olive Bubble + Squeak Herbal Dog Shampoo

| 9/9/2010 4:22:47 PM

When I first brought my puppy home from the shelter, I had so many things to get for him that I didn’t pay much attention to which shampoo I bought. I just grabbed the first one that said “Puppy Shampoo” on it and I was on to the next aisle. So when it was time to get a new bottle for him, I vowed to be more discerning and to find him a healthy, organic dog shampoo. My search ended happily when I found Olive Bubble + Squeak Herbal Dog Shampoo.

Olive Bubble + Squeak Herbal Dog Shampoo is everything I was looking for. It smells amazing (thanks to the peppermint, rosemary and lavender essential oils), has a rich lather and leaves his coat squeaky clean and super soft. Plus, I don’t have to use as much per bath as I did before, so I know the bottle will last a long time.

In addition to its enticing smell and great results, Olive Bubble + Squeak Herbal Dog Shampoo is by far the most eco-friendly, organic dog shampoo I’ve ever come across. From its simple ingredients to its responsible packaging, this organic dog shampoo knows what it means to be green. The organic dog shampoo is detergent-free and made with certified organic ingredients—including organic coconut and olive oils and an organic essential oil blend of peppermint, rosemary and lavender—and is 100 percent biodegradable. Not only is the bottle recyclable, but so is all the shipping packaging; the boxes and tissue paper are made from post-consumer waste, and the loose-fill is biodegradable and compostable.

Olive Bubble + Squeak Herbal Dog Shampoo costs $15.50 for a 12-ounce bottle from Olive’s website. It is a bit more expensive than some other brands, but considering the quality and longevity of the this organic dog shampoo and the eco-friendly packaging, I think it’s well worth the few extra bucks.

Olive’s website covers every facet of a dog’s life—play, walk, sleep, scrub and eat to name a few—and offers environmentally-friendly products for each one. Visit the website to see the full array of green dog products and for pricing and shipping information.
