Seventh Generation helps #fighttoxins in our products - Will you?

April 2, 2014


Disclaimer: I participated in a Mom Bloggers for Social Good Campaign. I will receive a gift card as thanks for helping spread awareness. No other compensation will be received and all opinions are my own.

I hate to admit how ignorant I have been in the past regarding the products I use to clean my home and wash my dishes and clothes. I never realized that companies with knowledge of what using harmful chemicals could do, would still continue using them, despite the harm they cause. Which makes me very grateful to companies like Seventh Generation who have been making products using plant derived ingredients for over 25 years now, products free of phthalates, synthetic fragrance, synthetic dyes, petroleum based SLS, triclosan, and phosphates. All ingredients we now know are bad for us and bad for our environment to produce.

"The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) was passed in 1976 and has never been updated. Some people might assume that the chemicals used to make products sold in the U.S., like toys and food containers, are regulated and tested for safety," but sadly they are not. "Over 80,000 chemicals are currently available for use in the market. The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) grandfathered in 62,000 chemicals when enacted in 1976 and over 20,000 have since been added. The EPA has required very few of these to be tested for their impacts on human health and the environment." I hope you will agree that now is the time to update the regulation on these chemicals.

Armed with this knowledge, Seventh Generation is working to push a reform on The Toxic Sunstances Control Act (TSCA) which would have all chemicals studied, evaluated and tested. Untested chemicals are not good around our families, especially our children! Wouldn't it be nice to feel confident keeping our families clean.


I encourage you to visit the website below, to sign the online petition to present to congress on April 30, 2014. Will you join us?

Sign the petition to fight toxins in our products.

The Toxin Freedom Fighters Campaign

If 100,000 signatures are collected:
•  The Toxin Freedom Fighters will deliver them to Congress on April 30, 2014;
•  The signatures will strengthen the movement behind chemical reform, and will encourage decision-makers to change the necessary laws; and
•  Seventh Generation will spread awareness about the 37 year-old TSCA and starts conversations about how it fails to protect the health of the general public.


Thank you for visiting.
