Seventh Generation Review and Giveaway!  

Spring Cleaning is here! Yes, that is right, it is
HERE!! Oh, how I long for a life where I could just
hire someone to come in and do it for me but alas,
no lottery winnings have been in my Tarot Cards so
I am stuck cleaning myself. I am also knee deep into
Rowan care and everything that goes along with that
as well. Her little bootie cleaning doesn't just wait for
Spring, this needs constant cleaning. Then the house
needs tending too, dishes and windows and counters
oh, my. With all this cleaning I could fill a landfill with
paper products and the chemical run off in my sewers
alone would be enough to make our whole neighborhood
glow in the dark. It seems like I have a whole list of
problems here, for I need to find a dump truck full of
cleaning products AND Baby items and make them
powerful AND gentle AND they all have to be good for
the planet for with as much going on as I have I need
to take a little extra care, taking short cuts just makes
more waste and I do more then my share of contributing
to clutter as it is. The odds of finding everything I need
at one places are next to ZIL for who does all that and
makes it affordable? Who makes Laundry and Cleaning
items and the Baby and products I need and makes them
specifically in a fashion that doesn't knock a few forests
down and keeps to the guidelines of Green? Not only is
it a daunting task but I thought it would be next
to imposable. Then I found Seventh Generation. That is a
nation everyone can be proud to join!

Seventh Generation is a company that sees that the
common person has two parts to the world. The big
one around us and the one we surround ourselves in
on a daily basis. Both are important and both need
tending to and people are running around so fast now
a days they have a hard time keeping up with either so
they made it their mission to help us on our path. I was
looking through their product list and the impression I got
was one day a Mom sat down and said just what do I
need on a daily basis. She them compiled a check list
of household and personal hygiene products that her and
her family both use and sat back in amazement at how
much it really was. I can imagine this "Green" Mom
realizing just what an impact her "must have" list makes
on the planet everyday and this person decided to see
if there was a way to make these items without ruining
the big world around us. Now I don't know if my
Mom is real or not but when I looked at their product
list that was the vibe I got for what Seventh Generation makes
is just what I use on a daily basis. All of it. Every last
item in their arsenal is something I have to keep in my
home to make it run smoothly and clean and keep my
family comfortable. The fact it is also Earth Friendly was
a big plus for even though I care about our planet it
has always been super hard for me to find items that
are green and still do an effective job. Most of the
items I have tried that are for cleaning and green I ended
up going back to an old stand after wards to do the job
right. The Green ones just were not cutting it. Would
Seventh Generation be the same? I did a product review to
see and the items I tested focused on Rowans world
but they are products that effect us all.
Their Baby items would be the best gage for
me to get an idea of how effective they are for face
it, this is where we take the most care in our lives
to provide a clean and sanitary environment. Nobody cuts
corners with baby involved and this is also the part of
our lives where we accumulate the most waste products for
Baby creates a lot. If a baby wipe does not clean babies
bootie good enough a Mom could care less how bad
another brand is for the planet she will think nothing of
using it to assure her child is clean. If a diaper leaks
she is going to trash it and get a brand that keeps her
child dry even if it does knock down a small forest with
every change of the bootie! If that laundry detergent
sends back clothes that looks like my son beat them
on a rock instead of send through the wash I am going
to use the chemicals to make sure it never looks like
that again. It is a fact of life, we do what is best for
our baby first and worry about its impact later. That
doesn't make us bad people just good Mom's. Now
if I can find a product that covers both things Bravo!
But if not I am going for the chemicals and extra waste
for Rowan comes first. I also know if Seventh Generation can
make me happy in the baby department, an area where
every female is the most fickle, then every other cleaning
and paper product they make has to be just as good!
I was sent a complete set of items for Rowan, Diapers,
Wipes, Paper Towel and Detergent and more and I have
to say I was a little nervous. This is Rowan and this
isn't a toy I am testing these are items that will touch
her skin and as much as I love my dog I would much
rather shave her bald and slap a Diaper on her Bootie
then to experiment on the Baby so I read a bunch of
reviews myself before I even took the chance of using
any of their items on that little girl. Not a single bad
word could be found. Next I read some in depth details
of how their items were made. I NEED to be sure here,
other wise the Pups fur will grow back. What I found is
these guys, unlike some of the other brands I have
used, did not get rid of anything in their products
that are effective in cleaning they just made sure to
bring you all the natural forms and cut the fillers and
junk we don't need. We are back to the basics before
we started going all hap-hazard with our products and
tossing in a little of this and a lot of that, items we
don't really need. Things snowballed in the cleaning world
and one place would add something to their laundry
detergent and then realize UT, oh, that takes away from
this aspect so they needed to add something else to
fix that and so on and so forth. The end result was a
finished product that has 45 million ingredients we don't
really need. Seventh Generation went back to square one and
started fresh and only kept the good stuff we needed
in the first place. Let's not forget, when the first place
was first around all we had was natural items to work
with so that is what they used. Better for us, WAY better
for baby and better for the planet all around. So I
was now comfortable in the fact they made a product
people love and use ingredients that will not hurt my
little girl so I gave them a whirl for the real test is
will they work for me.
WORK" Hallelujah! I have never, ever, used any
product in my whole life that is Green anything that
worked better. In fact these guys blow away most of
the things I use that are not green. The Wipes, lets
start with the wipes. I hate gross and lets be real a
minute here, changing a baby's diaper is gross when,
well, you know. Rowan has some doozies too. I
can't stand to get my fingers in it and therefor go
through a lot of wipes and though I look for thicker ones
that work well I can't ever find them and 7th Generation
has wipes that are thick enough and just moist enough
to clear her up without me using a half of box each
time. I loved them and now I want to talk about the
Diapers themselves. When Andrew was a baby I
used cloth and I just don't have the time right now.
When I did use a disposable with him I really remember
Pampers and Huggies being top of the line and got
those for Rowan and have been having a fit. They leak,
they fill too fast and I have found cheap brands that
work way better. I was disgusted with them and when
these came I gave them a whirl and was so happy
the first night I did not have to wake that baby at
2 am and change her for they kept her dry all night
long. I was in super shock there! These are the best,
green or not, Diapers I have used since Rowan has
been home and I am doing a Jig every morning when
I don't have to change her sheets and everything she
slept with from a nasty leak once again. Now, dry
as can be. If I stopped the review right now I would
be in their debt for you have no idea how happy I am
with this fact alone! After that I did the Baby's
laundry detergent and this stuff is awesome too! I
even think it would work on my sons items and that
is saying something huge. I love the way it left all
of her items smelling fresh as well as being super
clean and no fading at all. I am really bad about
pre-treating stains and because of that a lot of my
items end up per-mi stained and I was in complete shock
when some stains I had long ago given up on disappeared.
Now that was a shocker! Baby stuff! WOW! I am
now a member of the Seventh Generation, send me my
membership card!

I also loved their other items and their paper
towels the most. I go through a lot and use them
for ever thing and these were super absorbent and
I only went through about half of what I normally
go through and that alone spoke volumes to me
and really made my day for the money I can save
right there will be enormous.Seventh Generation in general
just produces a great product all around and is just
what a Mom ordered for Spring cleaning and day to
day too. With kids or without, you are keeping your
home as clean as can be and leaving the least impact
on the world around you and saving it for your kids.
What could be better?
