Dawn Dish Detergent and Wildlife.... #PGMom #howdoyoulovewildlife

Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom/mamanP&G. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.

___________________________ 


Did you know that our favourite dish washing detergent - Dawn has been helping to save wildlife for over 40 years?   In face in the United States, Dawn has had a hand in helping rescue more than 75 000 animals affected by oil spills and pollution.  Right here at home in Canada, Dawn recently came to the aid of some ducks who were affected by an oil spill, ensuring that they were returned to the wild within a few days of exposure.

As a PGMom, I am proud to use and support many, many great P&G products in my home, yet, one of my all time favourite partnerships is always Dawn.    Our family became acutely aware of our surroundings and our impact on nature by our youngest daughter's participation in outdoor school/outdoor classroom during her grade two year.  What she learned and her appreciation for the great outdoors spread to our entire family and it certainly didn't end when her school year was over.  We often talk about nature and take action when necessary.

At the beginning of the summer, our eight year old daughter noticed that a number of trees were marked to be cut down around our town.  She was concerned that we were losing habitats, shade and oxygen producing trees and wanted to know if those trees would be replaced.  She made a list of trees that could be used as replacements and we went to visit our town's mayor with her concerns.  {Very proud mom, here}

Our eight year old daughter has taught us to care for nature and wildlife.  Not to take a single day or creature or critter for granted and most of to be an advocate for all of nature and wildlife.


How do you advocate for nature and wildlife?

We have 5 budgies and a dog. We ONLY use Dawn original. One of our birds, our clumsy one, flew into the wall behind the stove and fell into a COLD pot of vegetable oil that wasn't covered. Ugh, she was such a mess. Thanks to Dawn we bathed her 3 times and did the best we could, Dawn took a lot of the oil off.

For our dog, we use it to treat fleas. We lather him up good and give it 5 mins and rinse.
