#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.

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.
