Recycle & Reuse
Did you know that we use PET bottles ( Polyethylene terephthalate) PET is a highly recyclable plastic and does not contain BPA. Put them in your recycling bins and reduce landfill waste. You can also "get crafty" with old bottles.

Approximately 1.5 billion pounds of used PET bottles and containers are recovered in the U.S. each year for recycling, making it the most recycled plastic in America.
Recycled PET gets new life as filler in pillows, bedding, coats, etc. and new PET bottles. The following is a great video that showcases PET recycling . Read more of how were recycling at Pure and Natural Pet.
Product Highlights
Accidents can happen but no one else has to know. Now you can easily clean & eliminate the pungent pet odors of urine, vomit or feces & their return with our plant-derived spray.
Our Stain & Odor Eliminator spray is ideal for any pet owner, retail shop or groomer. The product has a "Seal of Approval" from the Carpet and Rug Institute .

The seal is all about cleaning efficacy and measured effectiveness for a cleaner, healthier, and longer-lasting carpet.

“Traditional cleaners” contain toxic chemicals and harmful surfactants. Our natural enzyme busting spray is not harmful to your skin, pets, carpets or our environment.  
Ingredients Matter
We're ingredient sticklers and look for organic and all natural ingredients to create the best and safest products for your family pets. Sweet Orange Oil is multi-functional. It has many therapeutic benefits and is a key ingredient on our natural Shed Control Shampoo and Shed Control Conditioner.

Sweet Orange is a natural antiseptic that cleans while reducing yeast and other infections. It acts as an antioxidant with vitamin C to improve skin and protect from harmful UV damage.

It refreshes, re- energizes and calms anxiety while reducing pain and inflammation. It's the perfect ingredient for treating skin conditions. It also smells ahhhh-mazing!
