    Okay I need help. I have agreed to do the Green Living Expo at my local mall. I'm going to bring along some green shampoos and some gourmet treats. I thought this would be a good way to get out and meet people. What kinds of things should I bring along. All help is appreciated. Thanks.

    If you have one you could bring a bathing beauty or any other bathing system. You could talk about how they save on H20 usage. If you're a mobile groomer you can talk about your van(especially if its a Hanvey) and how certain systems save on H2O, energy and gas.

    Have fun and I'm sure it will be a great way to meet some new clients.

        Well so far I have found the Groomers choice shampoo line. Bio waste dog poop bags, Gourmet pet treats and I'm looking for a cleaning product to take along. I'm still looking at other lines of shampoo. I'm really just going to be able to get out in the community.

          Consider Show Seasons Naturals line. They are very honest about what goes into their products. Ask them for an ingredient list and review it. It's the best I've found yet. No DEA, cruelty free, biodegradable, no phosphates. I called, I grilled them, then made my order.

            Often it's not what you say, but how you say it.

              Well, examine the ingredients in your gourmet treats. Part of being "green" is using organic resources and food stuffs. Organics are considered green because they don't utilize pesticides and harmful chemicals, which protects the water sources, making them better for the environment.

              If your looking in "green" up your shop, consider Vermont soaps and Dr. Bronners products for cleaning. Both companies produce organic products and are great quality.

              I agree with the poster that recommended taking your bathing system if you have one! Also, your HV dryer that doesn't use heat, saves energy because it pulls less amps.

              I carry Molly Mutt duvet covers that use a stuff sack, in which, you can use old pillows, clothes, blankets or other cloth items to "stuff" into the sack and then put the duvet cover over it. That way you don't have to throw the old stuff in the landfills. Of course, if you can recycle the clothes, then you should, but some times there are clothes, etc, not worth donating.

              Here's a good site on "green" tips http://www.greenlivingtips.com/ (hope it's ok to post here) They even have a section for pets!

                I use Natures Specialties shampoo conditioners and colognes they do offer trial sized packaging as well . But the shipping isn't very fast IMO

                  Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing! Those look so awesome. I can't keep my guys in beds because they "de-stuff" them. And I hate most have that synthetic stuffing. I'm so getting a few of those.

                    Molly Mutt's are great! They are heavy weight, durable and easy to clean, but more importantly, they help keep old stuff out of the landfills

                    If you contact them, tell Molly that Renee' told ya about them. I don't get anything, but I'd like her to know I'm recommending them!

                      Thanks guys. I don't have a bathing system but would really like to get one. I'm really just trying to get out in the public for expousure. I use show seasons now but I really wanted a shampoo that said that it was green right on the label just because I know how people are. I love the dog beds and I have found a couple of cleaning products for pets. I'll keep looking and if you guys have anymore great ideas keep them coming please. I got two weeks left to prepare.

                        That is NOT how people are. Many of my friends, including myself, do lots of research on products and read labels for ingredients. Just saying "green" can be misleading. You could be doing yourself an injustice by only selecting products with clever "green" marketing and not doing your research. If I were at your booth, I'd read the labels and engage you in discussion about your products. Eco-conscious consumers are far more clever than your average consumer, they don' t take things at face value.

                          I am with Canopener Sally on this. Make sure that your products not only say that they are green but that they are green!

                            I'm going with happy tails. They not only are eco friendly but have a ton of information about their product that is easily accessible. I have done plenty of research and continue to do so. I know that just because something says its eco friendly or green doesn’t necessary mean that it is. As far as show season, and NS, goes I had no idea that they were eco friendly until you guys mentioned it. I want a product that markets itself as eco friendly and/or green. I want something that people can easily research if they want. I plan on telling people that I use show seasons natural line but its really not a line for resale. I know that people who are into green living are going to be inquisitive so I want a product that I can research and read thoroughly through before going.
