#ComeClean with Seventh Generation

I think many people would agree that we need to be aware of what foods we are eating, and what ingredients are in them. I also believe it's important to be aware of what products we are using on our bodies and in our homes.

Visit Seventh Generation for more information:

From Seventh Generation:

Help us air the cleaning industry’s dirty laundry. We support the Cleaning Product Right to Know Act (H.R. 5205), which requires manufacturers of both consumer household and industrial cleaning products to disclose all intentionally-added ingredients, including fragrance components, on their product labels and on their websites. You can show your support by asking your representative to support YOUR right to know.

If companies don't tell you what's inside right on the package, how do you know what you're bringing around your family and into your home?

You have a right to know what goes into the products you use. Food and personal care products are required to have content labels, but there are no regulations in place for the ingredient labeling of household cleaning products - especially for the fragrances that scent those products.

Chemicals of concern can hide behind the term "fragrance" in ingredient lists on your cleaning products - chemicals that have been linked to serious health effects including allergies, asthma, cancer, and reproductive harm.

I received a free laundry detergent to review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Another Seventh Generation Free & Clear laundry detergent

After having a chance to use the Seventh Generation Free & Clear laundry detergent a few more times, I still prefer it over our others!

I worry more than I used to about the chemicals we use everyday, what we eat and surround ourselves with.  I think it's important to try to avoid it when we can.  Using this plant-based formula helps us atain a safer environment for my family.  Love that it's "tough on stains without fragrances, dyes or artificial brighteners."

I received a couple samples of the Seventh Generation Free & Clear laundry detergent to try for free. Opinions are 100% my own.

Seventh Generation Free & Clear laundry detergent

I love that they don't have a bunch of extra additives. And it works well for sensitive skin.

Occasionally my little ones will get random rashes with no obvious indicators what it is from. sometimes I wonder if it's from when we use other, more mainstream, laundry detergents. I haven't been able to pin it down to one specific one, but we've never had problems when using Seventh Generation.

we also cloth diaper and I have had numerous issues with ensuring they are completely clean.  so far Seventh Generation laundry detergent has been great and doesn't cause diaper rashes from waste reacting with "not completely clean" diapers.

From Seventh Generation: "This Plant-based formula is tough on stains without fragrances, dyes or artificial brighteners.  Get a clean you can trust that is made for sensitive skin."

L’il Critters™ Gummy Vites™ Complete Multivitamins

we received a bottle of the L’il Critters™ Gummy Vites™ Complete Multivitamins for free to try out. Opinions are 100% my own. I was very pleased with these vitamins. my little ones, not surprisingly, enjoyed eating them and often asked for more (which offered the opportunity to explain that they aren't candy). they were pretty chewy, so care should be taken when being given to a younger child to avoid choking hazards. they each decided they preferred different colors, but I think it was more so because of the color versus the flavor. they tasted great and made vitamin time fun. I love that they have no high fructose corn syrup and no synthetic dyes, and naturally sourced flavors.

Tweet & email the U.S. Senators

I'm supporting Seventh Generation in their efforts to get unsafe chemicals off the shelves.

The Senate is likely to review the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA), which regulates toxic chemicals, shortly after they return to Washington.
This is your chance to be heard! Join Seventh Generation, and other health and environmental advocates, in reaching out to your Senators to call for meaningful changes to the updated TSCA law.
Tell your Senator that any TSCA reform legislation must contain provisions that:
1) protects the rights of states to regulate toxic chemicals; 2) immediately gets the worst, most toxic chemicals off the market; and 3) prioritizes identifying and reviewing the most high-risk chemicals first.
It's unacceptable that legislation would be considered without these common sense elements. Tell your Senator that reform should only go forwards, not backwards.
Join us and our partners the Breast Cancer Fund to tell our leaders it's time for real toxic chemical reform.
