Green Your Routine with Seventh GenerationMonday, August 27, 2012
For several years, I have always been on the lookout for cleaning products that were non-toxic and did not smell of harsh chemicals. It became much more important once I became a mother and began to worry about the dangers of allowing my children to come into contact with potentially harmful cleaning products. One of the first brands I had ever tried was Seventh Generation. Since many of their products cost more than conventional products, I would often restrict their use to washing baby bottles, dishes, baby clothes and the like. Over the last year or so, I have not been nearly so diligent, even though it's always been in the back of my mind that I should work more towards living like the Lorax and being greener. This is why I agreed to work with Seventh Generation and participate in their Green Your Routine challenge.
Over the next few weeks, I will be making a more conscientious effort to live a healthier and more environmentally-friendly lifestyle. Seventh Generation has sent over a kit of cleaning products to help me green my routine along with the following four recommendations:
- Tip #1 - Pack a Litterless Lunch
- Tip #2 - Watch How You Wash
- Tip #3 - Choose a Sustainable Route to School
- Tip #4 - Teach Environmental Stewardship
Seventh Generation hasn't forgot about my readers. They have offered up a chance to win your own Seventh Generation Starter Kit composed of coupons for a complimentary package of Seventh Generation Free & Clear Dish Soap, Free & Clear Kitchen Spray and 4X Laundry Detergent so you can try these products, too. Canadian residents can enter to win by filling out the Rafflecopter form below.
