Seventh Generation Review and Giveaway


So this year I decided I wanted to go 'green'. Well okay as green as I can and still be frugal. Let's face it going 'green' cost's green. Well I hear about this product line from Seventh Generation. I checked out the site and knew I had to contact them and see about doing a review. Their Mission Page  lets you know more for what they stand for. I received the LIVING HOME STARTER KIT and it contains:
  • Glass Cleaner - Grapefruit
  • All-Purpose Cleaner - Green Mandarin
  • Toilet Bowl Cleaner - Emerald
  • Shower Cleaner - Green Mandarin
  • Tub & Tile Cleaner
  • Kitchen Cleaner
  • (2) Natural Paper Towels - 120 Count
  • Reusable Tote
I have given these cleaning products several chances to fail and disappoint me but they come out strong every time. I love the scent and that there is no harsh fumes.  I can use the Kitchen cleaner on my table after dinner and it cleans up so well after my 8 month old and 4 year old have gotten more food on my surfaces then in their mouth. The bathroom cleaners did not make me sick as I cleaned; come on you know the drill... Spray cleaner on all surface, turn on exhaust, and run out gagging from the smell and fumes. But not with Seventh Generation. I will admit the thing that surprised me most by their Tub and Tile cleaner is how there was no slippery, filmy residue that is known in other cleaners.There was nothing that I did not like about the Seventh Generation family and I am thrilled to know I can purchase them at Target and Kroger as well as many more.

Seventh Generation has a Faq's page on their site to get answers to most questions. They also have a coupon page which makes me even more happy to switch to the Seventh Generation family of products.

To buy your own Seventh Generation products, please go to its store locator to find a store near you. You can also purchase online through Seventh Generation's website.
WIN IT: One Lucky reader will win a Living Home starter kit which retails for $44.99 and includes everything I received to review (US residents only please).

  39. You have the right to know what's inside the products you purchase. That is why Seventh Generation was the first company in the household products industry to clearly print on each product's packaging - in plain language - all of the ingredients we use. We believe all household products should do the same. We are working with the Breast Cancer Fund and other advocates to support federal legislation that would require ALL household care products to disclose ingredients on their labels.

    THANK YOU!!!!
