“In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations. ” ~ From the Great Law of the Iroquois Confederacy
« Dans toutes nos délibérations, nous devons tenir compte des répercussions de nos décisions sur les sept prochaines générations. » ~ de la grande Loi de la Confédération iroquoise
When I was a wee lass, I made every effort to recycle paper, plastics and glass, as well as reduce and reuse whenever possible. I thought I was being very responsible when it came to being eco-conscious. As I grew older, I realized there was so much more that I could do. It wasn't until I met my husband and we had children that my outlook towards the environment changed drastically. The biggest change centred around cleaning products, namely those that had a harsh, chemical smell. I'm pretty sure my sense of smell became more heightened post-pregnancy, but I like to think it was my body's way of saying that I needed to be extra cautious when it came to exposing my children to potentially harmful products. This is why I am grateful for brands like Seventh Generation.
The natural kitchen cleaner is also biodegradable, an added bonus. I am glad that they have fragrance-free products, although I really like the scent of the wild orange and cedar spice kitchen cleaner. And it is also nice to see that some of their products, like their dishwasher gel, come in bottles made with 90% Postconsumer Resin. Seventh Generation also discloses their full ingredients list on their packaging along with a little break down of select active ingredients and their function.
