I always had a fluttering thought in the back of my mind about how cleaners affected us and the environment. I noticed that this fluttering thought became something in the forefront of my mind ever since I had my little one.
I would be cleaning a bathroom and telling my little one to please leave because I did not want her breathing in the fumes from the cleaners. I would be rinsing sinks and tubs forever to make sure there was no cleaner residue and hence what I thought to be harmful chemicals left behind to invade my little one.
I was tired of worrying about chemicals, so off I went to try natural cleaners. I wanted a cleaner that worked and a brand that I felt like I could trust. Out of my adventures to find a green cleaner, I have come to the conclusion that I absolutely love Seventh Generation products.
I feel good that I can clean with Seventh Generation products and not worry about what residue is left behind or fumes in the air if my little one happens to walk into the bathroom as I am cleaning. I also feel better about seeing the Seventh Generation cleaners washing down the drain as I rinse. I feel that I am not affecting the environment to the degree I was before.

By choosing Seventh Generation Free & Clear diapers, which use wood pulp that has not been processed with chemicals containing chlorine, you can help reduce the amount of chlorinated toxins released into the environment.
