Seventh Generation Free & Clear Starter Kit Review and Giveaway! Day 1 of Earthweek Giveaway Celebration~Closed~

This Contest is now Closed!
1 Winner, Ends Monday, May 3rd @ 10pm EST!

Welcome to Day 1 of my Earth Week Giveaway Celebration!

Today I would like to introduce you to Seventh Generation! I'm sure most of you have heard of Seventh Generation or even used some of their products around the house. I have been slowly phasing out cleaners that are not earth friendly or green and trying out companies like Seventh Generation.

Seventh Generation "creates household and personal care products that are effective and safe for the air, the surfaces, the fabrics, the pets, and the people within your living home."

Here is some info about Seventh Generation from their website:

Seventh Generation is committed to becoming the world's most trusted brand of authentic, safe, and environmentally-responsible products for a healthy home. For 20 years, the closely held Burlington, Vermont-based company has been at the forefront of a cultural change in consumer behavior and business ethics.

One of the country's first self-declared "socially responsible" companies, Seventh Generation is a business that operates according to a new and different set of principles and values that in many ways are a marked departure from those long considered "traditional." Its business practice is focused on offering people avenues to express their idealism, passion, and commitment to causes larger than themselves at every point along its supply chain—from suppliers and partners to shareholders, customers and its own staff.


Seventh Generation brand-name products include the following:

Non-chlorine bleached, 100% recycled paper towels, bathroom and facial tissues, and napkins; non-toxic, phosphate-free cleaning, dish and laundry products; plastic trash bags made from recycled plastic; chlorine-free baby diapers, training pants, and baby wipes; and chlorine-free feminine care products, including organic cotton tampons.

I contacted the kind people over at Seventh Generation and they sent me a Free & Clear Starter Kit recently. The box I received was full of great products! The Free & Clear Kit includes the following items:

*Disinfecting Multi-Surface
*Disinfecting Bathroom
*Disinfecting Wipes - 35 ct.
*Laundry Detergent – F&C 32 oz
*Liquid Fabric Softener – F&C 40 oz
*Dish liquid
*All- Purpose Cleaner
*Auto-Dish Pacs
*Glass Cleaner
*Natural Paper Towels
*Seventh Generation Recycled Bag




I have been using the products around the house for a couple weeks now and honestly have nothing bad to say about them. I love how easily you can just throw a Auto-Dish Pac into the dishwasher (you don't have to take the wrapper off) and the Laundry Detergent and Fabric Softener are cleaning and making my clothes soft! I used the Bathroom cleaner just this morning and it cleaned my counter and around my toilet just as well as any leading brand cleaner I have used previously. I have been using the Disinfecting Multi-Surface cleaner in the kitchen and take peace knowing that I am not preparing food on counters that have unsafe chemicals on them! Geesh, I have been cleaning way to much! ;)

I will definitely buy Seventh Generation products in the future. I love that I am not using products to clean with that are full of nasty chemicals.
