This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. The winner is Tiffany. Congrats!
One of the reasons I enjoy the product review side of my blog is that I get to try new products I otherwise would never have the opportunity to try. And the other aspect I enjoy is the opportunity to share with you about the products we use all the time in our home. There are some companies I can’t speak enough about.
Seventh Generation is one such company. I was using their products long before product reviews. I feel completely comfortable cleaning the bathroom with my toddler in the room, washing baby bottles and sippy cups with their dishwashing liquid, and having both of my children in their diapers. And that’s because “Seventh Generation is committed to being the world’s most trusted brand of authentic, safe, and environmentally-responsible products for a healthy home.” Their entire line is non-toxic to both you and the environment. You can look at the list of ingredients on each and every product and feel confident in their safety.
I can clean my bathroom (or any other room) with their products without donning a mask or opening windows. My son had chronic diaper rashes until we finally made the switch to Seventh Generation’s diapers. (hint hint: Order them through Amazon.com’s Subscribe and Save option for THE best pricing ever). I wash our children’s clothing with their Baby Laundry Detergent and they never get rashes or skin irritation. Sure, I’d like their toilet paper and paper towels to be a bit softer (but they’re 100% recycled!). But they function well so I’m happy. Some people care about having “white” paper products. I really don’t care what color they are, as long as they do what they’re supposed to do…particularly since many whitened products are done so by way of a chemical called chlorine.
I received a deluxe baby kit, courtesy of the company which included items like diapers, wipes, etc. I was very excited about trying their chlorine-free pads and tampons (TMI?). And what better time than after having a baby! They’re just as soft and absorbent as other brands without the chemicals to go with them.
There are many companies with labels like “green” and “eco-friendly.” I truly believe Seventh Generation stands out among the rest because of their commitment to both the consumer and the environment and their complete transparency about their products.
Seventh Generation is doing something truly amazing. Million Baby Crawl is an initiative to help change the current chemical law (which only requires testing on 200 of the 80,000 chemicals on the market). You can learn more about this initiative on the site.
