Happy 100th Anniversary P&G Canada! #PGMom {Giveaway}

Well Happy Anniversary P&G Canada! Procter and Gamble has been a trusted part of Canadian households since 1915, when they employed the first 75 people in our country. The first brand to launch here? The iconic Ivory Soap. "It floats!" I remember being totally excited about this floating soap when I was a kid (NOT in 1915, for the record!)  You can check out the infographic below for a timeline of some of P&G Canada's milestones and iconic products.

There are names here I haven't thought of in a long while, like Oxydol and Joy. Do you remember those? But I'm a little surprised to see that Bounty only launched in 1994. I feel like it's been around forever.  And of course, being a young teen in 1984 I completely remember the introduction of Always. I honestly found this one revolutionary and was so impressed with the protection Always provided, and how it kept me dry. It was so much better than any other pad on the market at the time, and has been my one and only brand ever since.

P&G products have been part of my life since I was a child, which is why I am so proud to be part of the #PGMom program. I trust these products and get great value for my money across the many brands.  What about you? Is P&G a staple in your home? What's your favourite P&G product or the one you can't live without? I'd have to put Tide pods, and Olay moisturizers high up on the top of my list. And Febreze - I use it everywhere.
