I participated in a campaign on behalf of Millennial Central for Seventh Generation. I received a promotional item and product samples as a thank you for participating
Many people seem to think that the products we buy off the supermarket shelves to use in our homes are safe and have been tested, but that’s not necessarily the case. I think it’s safe to say that the vast majority of us would prefer to clean our homes safely and without harmful chemicals, but how do we know what is harmful and what isn’t?
Did you know?
- Scientists have linked toxic chemical exposure to many health risks such as Alzheimer’s, Cancer, learning disabilities, asthma, birth defects, and various reproductive problems.
- The Toxic Substances Control Act hasn’t been updated since 1976.
- 80,000 synthetic chemicals have been introduced to the market since then and the EPA has required testing on less than 10% of them.
Seventh Generation has worked for 25 years to create plant-based products using bio-based ingredients so consumers can clean their homes while also making them healthier.
I don’t claim to be perfect but am constantly looking for natural, plant-based products to use instead of their chemical-laden counterparts. I have been a big fan of Seventh Generation for a long time and they were one of the very first toxin-free line of products that I have used.
I started with changing to a toxin-free all purpose cleaner for my countertops. It was most important to me to have my food preparation areas clear of chemicals that could potentially get into our food. That turned into natural dish detergents, laundry detergent, soaps and body washes. Now almost all of our cleaning products are plant-based and toxin free.
We can create change! Click on the badge below to become a Toxin Freedom Fighter and urge Congress to reevaluate the Toxic Substances Control Act to include more strict guidelines for testing toxic chemicals for their safety and to ensure that the public is aware of the safety of the chemicals in their homes by signing the petition.
Seventh Generation would like to collect 100,000 signatures to deliver to Congress April 30, 2014. They are very close to their goal! I signed it, will you?
