seventh generation giveaway

Because my over-40 brain loses cells by the second, I forgot to include vital info: All entries are due by noon EDT Wednesday, March 31. I will use a random number generator to choose a winner.

I love, love, love Seventh Generation. For quite a while now I have used SG’s Free and Clear dishwashing liquid as well as their natural all purpose cleaner. The products meet my personal requirements for eco-friendliness. However, the disinfecting products are new to me – and pure joy for an environmentalist germophobe mom of two kids and two dogs. :)

Seventh Generation sent me the pack pictured above, which includes Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner, Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner and Disinfecting Wipes, in addition to other goodies.* I love having a natural disinfectant option and I am happy to let others know about this company. (FYI, locally, I buy SG products at Publix. Watch for coupons in Publix flyers and also online at SG’s site. Good deals on good stuff, people. Also, our Whole Foods has coupons online right now on these products – not sure if that’s a national offer.)

And as always, if a product good for the environment, but doesn’t work and/or causes my eczema to flare up like the Towering Inferno, I have to move along. These disinfecting products seem to work beautifully and my hands are not on fire. :) Coolness.

One of my favorite things about Seventh Generation is that I can look online and find every ingredient in every product – full disclosure, right there at you. I also learned online that the disinfectant part of these new cleaners comes from CleanWell. (They make hand sanitizer! Who knew?) Learn about CleanWell’s sustainability here.

So, here’s where you come in… I get to give away a gift pack just like the one pictured above. Interested? Leave a comment below and if you want (not required, because I am all about NOT jumping through hoops), give the rest of us a tip for living green with kids –- because kids = dirt. I find that the more I learn about the toxins and waste we bring into and take out of our homes, the more I need to learn. Make sense? Comment on. (I also added a handy dandy Feedburner subscription widget right up there on the right. I am on a mission now to update this blog more often.)

*The gift pack includes a copy of The Conscious Kitchen by Alexandra Zissu. I am going through my copy now and I will post a review ASAP.

Seventh Generation provided me with the gift pack pictured above, as well as product information and a gift pack to give away, all through MyBlogSpark. I am a longtime loyal customer and my opinions are my own. Gracias.

This looks great. I love using these types of products when I can. I'm not as good with the green as I'd like to be, paper plates are my best friend, but I do try to avoid too many chemicals and additives when at all possible. If one can be green and still keep the paper plates, I'm all over it.

I would love to win this!

Sounds great! I'd love a chance to win! We have lots of skin/scent reactions at our house. Teaching the kids to put on (scent-free) lotion after washing their hands helps during the winter.

I'd like to try these--I've never used any green cleaning products. Well, I do use vinegar a lot. I guess that counts!

I would love to win. **grin**

I like to use natural unscented products (when possible) as it helps cut down on the allergic reactions. It's also better for our respiratory health.

Heidi said...

Ohhhhh, I would love to win this! I use vinegar and baking soda a lot, but haven't really tried any green products.

Jennifer said...

What they said- I haven't purchased green cleaning products, but I've tried some homemade ones in the past few years. My favorite so far has been homemade laundry soap.

Michelle said...

I'd love to win this! We used to use a "green" product line but cannot afford it now.

I do use vinegar and baking soda, as well as essential oils, around the house for all sorts of cleaning uses. :)

Thanks for offering this giveaway. I've never used any SG products but would love to try them. I've been making my own cleaners for years - as much to save money as to be environmentally-friendly.

I've been reading a lot lately about all the chemicals in household cleaners lately. Thanks for the timely giveaway!
