Living Like the Lorax

Since I’m a busy working mom, I love it when companies offer affordable, practical ways to help the environment. Seventh Generation is one of my favorite companies because they offer greener cleaning products that are priced competitively.

I recently had a chance to test their Natural 4X Detergent. The formula “uses multiple enzyme systems to fight the toughest stains” according to the folks at Seventh Generation. Honestly, I’m not sure what that means, but I was able to remove tomato sauce, blueberry/strawberry stains and grass stains from my kids’ clothing with this detergent…so it passes my test!

While I liked the vanilla and geranium blossom scent, my husband prefers unscented laundry detergent. Thankfully, Seventh Generation offers a free & clear version of the detergent too. The bottle is made from 100% recycled fiber and is compostable too!

Simple actions like using a greener detergent can make a big difference.

Seventh Generation and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax have joined forces to inspire families to conserve the earth’s resources with conscious consumption. If every U.S. household replaced just one bottle of 50 oz. 4X concentrate petroleum-based laundry liquid with Seventh Generation’s 50 oz. 4X concentrate plant-derived product, we could save enough oil to heat and cool 15,700 U.S. homes for a year. Make a difference by choosing high-quality and effective products from Seventh Generation, now offering free shipping for any purchase over $50!As the Lorax says,“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
