Daily Walrus - Helping People Help Animals

Donate cleaning supplies to your local shelter | January 23, 2008

We’ve been really impressed by the number of hits the posts on compassionate shopping have gotten.  When a person decides to go the animal-friendly (or “green”) route, one question always comes up quickly: “What do I do with all this old stuff?” 

Some people use up the remainder of their old products and then replace with new, cruelty-free items.  Others want to get rid of the old, inhumane items quickly with a clean sweep.  If you choose the latter, why not donate your old cleaning supplies to an animal shelter?  Shelters and Rescue sites are always in need of items like bleach and other cleaners to keep germs and bacteria in check. 

Give your local shelter a call and ask them what products they use regularly and see if they will accept your unused portions.  The products may have been made without consideration for the animals used in testing, but at least they can do some good for those waiting anxiously to be adopted.

About author

Hello - we are Jenny and Ryan, a couple living in Brooklyn, New York. We are both busy with school and work but try to take time to do something every day to make the world a better place for animals. Occasionally we may link to outside websites for additional resources, but we do not necessarily endorse all policies of these organizations. Despite the title of our blog, the focus is not only on walruses. So what's with the title? We named this blog after our cat, Wally, aka The Walrus. We are the proud parents of two cats (Wally and Tito) and one dog (Luigi).
