National Fragrance Free Day
Today is officially the Second Annual Fragrance Free Day, which was started by SeaYu, the makers of Clean + Green Natural Pet Stain and Odor Removers. Speaking of Clean + Green, this is where you want to go if you have that dog smell on your furniture. I have used the Furniture Refresher for Dogs since our 95 German Shepherd likes to lounge on the sofa and it really works. It's eco-friendly and non-toxic and I feel confident about its safety when my family is sitting on the furniture.
I'd like to tell you more about Fragrance Free Day and why it is so important for us to start eliminating artificial fragrances. I am not just talking about those labeled "phthalate free" either. These are so popular now, but phthalates aren't the only toxin in fragrance oils. Whether they are phthalate free or not, they are not good for us. Read more here.
Fragrance Free Day gives concerned consumers a chance to help spread awareness by pledging to go “fragrance free” via their social networks – meaning no perfumes/colognes, scented lotions or harsh cleaning products with added fragrances – for one full day.
So, what can you do? For one day, help the world breathe easier and pledge to not use any products that contain harsh chemical additives and fragrances. Use your Facebook status, your Twitter feed (with hashtag #fragrancefreeday) and your blogs to let everyone know “I am going Fragrance Free on August 11th because...”
In addition, SeaYu will be hosting a live Twitter chat from 12 – 1 pm EDT where you can get all of their fragrance questions and concerns addressed, with a panel of experts including:
* Quincy Yu, Founder of SeaYu and green living expert
* Dr. Patrick Mahaney, Veterinarian, Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist and author of the
upcoming book, The Uncomfortable Vet
* Dr. Stephen Ziman, organic chemist
Knowledge, as they say, is power, so share yours and help empower your friends and family to take steps to protect themselves, their family, their pets and our planet!
