I am SO excited to be reviewing these items for Seventh Generation! They are one of my favorite natural products companies for more than one reason. One of the main reasons I choose to use their products is because they are amazing! Not only are they extremely effective at cleaning but they are also non-toxic and not tested on animals. Since giving birth I have steadily become more aware of the effects of toxic cleaners on an infant's brand-new body and how simple it is to replace harsh cleaning products, with gentler all-natural ones. Here are some facts from the Seventh Generation website:
"Our focus is to inspire thoughtful consideration of each purchase—from the immediate impact of the products you buy (Is it safe? Is it gentle on the earth? Does it work?), to the broader impact throughout their lifecycle.
We believe that the best way to ensure that we live up to our aspirations is to be completely transparent about our business and product practices. You should expect to see all of our values and principles in everything we make, say, and do. It’s really that simple.
We’re committed to making sure that everyone our company interacts with—from the farmers who grow our lavender to the customers who use our products—are treated fairly and with respect.
We are determined to inspire others through innovation, education, and interaction. We proudly donate 10% of our profits to support organizations that work for positive change."
Seventh Generation sent me an extremely generous package of each one of their Free and Clear Products plus all of their amazing disinfecting products to test out and review. The products included:
Natural All Purpose Cleaner: This cleaner is perfect for all of the hard surfaces in your home and can even be used for wet mopping! It's also free of harsh fumes and hypo-allergenic.
Natural Glass and Surface Cleaner: This is the product you'll turn to for cleaning every reflective surface in your home including mirrors, windows, and chrome. The cleaner is also free of fumes, non-toxic, and biodegradable.
Natural 2X Concentrated Laundry Liquid: This laundry detergent is a unique combination of plant-derived cleaning agents and enzymes that are super effective cleaners. I love that I can use this liquid on my clothes as well as the baby's with no risk of skin irritation!
Natural Fabric Softener: Did you know most fabric softeners are made from animal fat? Gross! Seventh Generation uses canola oil instead which is just as effective without the ick factor! Definitely a must buy!
Natural Dish Liquid: This liquid is extremely effective while still being completely natural, plus the bottle is made from 90% recycled plastic!
Automatic Dishwasher Detergent Packets: I love that these packets are both chlorine and phosphate free and got my dishes sparkling clean! The pouches are also extremely convenient!
Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner: One of the things I worry about when using all-natural cleaners is their disinfecting powers. Not with this one! The Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner is just as effective as harsher bleach-based cleaners (kills 99.9% of germs) while still remaining safe to use around children and pets.
Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner: This is my go-to product for cleaning all of the baby's items including the highchair, toys, and stroller. Kills 99.9% of germs while still being safe!
Disinfecting Wipes: I absolutely love the convenience of these wipes! They are super-effective at cleaning hard surfaces while still retaining all of the qualities I love about Seventh Generation products!
Here are what I consider the best aspects of Seventh Generation products (not all products contain every one of these qualities):
not tested on animals
plant-based cleaners and enzymes
And the BEST part- they are just as effective at cleaning as the harsher alternatives out there!
Enter to win a HUGE package of each one of each of the products listed above plus a roll of Seventh Generation recycled paper towels and a handy reusable shopping bag!
