Clean Green: Seventh Generation Giveaway

Now that Earth Day and the spring season have officially arrived, many Americans are in their eco-conscious cleaning modes, and while spring cleaning is necessary if not a little exciting (downsizing! de-cluttering! finding everything you once thought was lost forever!), the very products used to clean and protect your living space from germs could be harmful to both your family and the environment.

According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, more than 50% of human poison exposure victims are children younger than six-years-old, and with sixty-three hazardous chemical products in the average American household-according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission-it’s no wonder so many kids are coming into contact with harmful chemicals on a daily basis at home.

According to a recent survey conducted by Harris Interactive and commissioned by Seventh Generation, 70% of parents with kids under six-years-old store their household cleaning products and solutions under the sink, but 47% cannot name one ingredient in the cleaners that they are using and storing within reach of their children.

You may already be using “eco-friendly” products in your home, but some of the products on the market are not always what they appear to be.

Seventh Generation challenges you to take a closer look at the products you have been using and to kick off your “spring cleaning” by first cleaning out what is under your kitchen sink.

To help get you started with your under the kitchen sink makeover, Seventh Generation would like to send FIVE eco-savvy 5MinutesForGoingGreen readers a starter kit of Seventh Generation products for you to use for your every day cleaning needs.
(Total value: around $30-35 USD, per starter kit.)

Each of the five! starter kits we’re giving away will include the following Seventh Generation cleaning products encased in a handy reusable tote bag:

All of Seventh Generation’s products are non-toxic and biodegradable, hypo-allergenic, they aren’t tested on animals, and they are also kosher-certified. Awesome, no? Seventh Generation discloses all of their product ingredients on their website, and all of their paper products are comprised of 100% recycled paper.

I myself have been using the Seventh Generation cleaning arsenal for the past week and a half and already I’m thoroughly impressed. The products pack a serious cleaning punch, while not leaving our home laden with the typical chemical-heavy post-cleaning smells. To put it simply: I’m a believer, and I think you will be too as soon as you try some of their products.

We’re definitely going to help you with that this week.

How to get in on the green giveaway action? Simple.

1) Just leave a comment on this post anytime between today, Wednesday April 22nd, and Sunday, May 3rd by 7pm EST and consider yourself entered. (Be sure to use a valid email address when leaving your entry comments, as I’ll use that email address to notify the winner of the contest.)

2) Because it’s Earth Day and we like you, for a second giveaway entry come back here at any point between today and Sunday, May 3rd by 7pm EST and offer a green living tip (anything you want), and consider yourself doubly entered.

On May 3rd I’ll use a random number generator to pick one winner, so be sure to check back on the site on Monday, May 4th to see if you’ve won!

Bonus Links, to keep you reading green this week:

The story behind the site:

Sharon Lowe, a native-Australian and former New York resident saw that her children were spending a great deal of time online and wanted to create a place for them that was both entertaining and worthwhile. Several months back, there was a series of wildfires tearing through much of Australia, and Sharon’s children were having some profound concerns about these fires and the environment. The idea of Habitat Heroes came to her as a way to address the issues occurring within our environment and tap into just how tech-savvy the children of today are.

  • In addition to helping you make-over your green cleaning, Seventh Generation also wants to share a great new resource called Health eHome that will help you uncover the hazards lurking in your home. Seventh Generation created Health eHome in collaboration with WebMD and Healthy Child Healthy World to provide a personalized educational platform that helps uncover potential dangers and hazards identified as “hot spots” in a virtual home. The tool also has an expert blog that provides trusted information on creating a cleaner, greener lifestyle, and you can test the safety of their home by doing a “Health eHome Check,” where they can get personalized results and an action plan for their home.


See you tomorrow for more great green giveaways, Earth Day tips, and bonus links to keep you winning, thinking, and clicking green all week long!

    Here’s my green tip for the second entry…
    Instead of using paper towels or paper napkins to keep our hands and faces clean at meal times, I’ve started using cloth napkins. Each person gets their own cloth napkin and special napkin ring (my mom shared this “ring” tip with me – it’s what people used to do). That way, if the napkin isn’t too dirty, it can be reused for the next meal. “Beauty” tip – napkins with patterns or darker in color are a better choice for everyday use – save the white/lighter napkins for company. :-)

    Just bought my first Seventh Generation product last week, would be nice to broaden my Seventh Generation products.

    April 22, 2009 | 10:54 am

    I recently started using the laundry detergent and fabric softener and was going to check at the store to see what other cleaning products are available. Now I know!! Thanks.

    (And thanks for the great tips. A friend just sent your link to me. I’ve loved everything I’ve read so far.)

    Going green tip (besides reading 5 Minutes for Going Green!) – I pack a lunch several days a week so I bought reusable containers that are the right size for my sandwich and other things I take every day – no more plastic bags. :)

  18. Elise
    April 22, 2009 | 11:38 am

    I’ve got a green mini-tip for any knitters that might be out there. You know those plastic bits used to close plastic bread bags? They make handy stitch markers in a pinch. And if you need to put your project away for a while, you can write on it which row you just worked before you stopped.

  19. Rebecca German
    April 22, 2009 | 12:01 pm

    I have been using Seventh Generation Products for over a year now since we resolved to be more green last New Years. Great Stuff!

  20. Rebecca

    Green tip:
    Focuse on the reuse portion of the cycle. Try to find as many areas that you can reuse. Yogurt containers can be used to bring lunches to work, to store small nails or bolts, or to sort jewlery

    my green tip (entry #2)

    mixing 3 parts water and 1 part vinegar can be used as
    1.) cleaner and deodorizer
    2.) glass cleaner
    3.) produce wash

    multipurpose AND inexpensive!

  26. Rachel
    April 22, 2009 | 12:52 pm

    I went and saw the Disney premier of “Earth” a couple of nights ago, and what a moving amazing documentary about our struggling earth. I am so glad that companies like Seventh Generation are creating products to help the earth!

  27. Sarah

    Green tip:

    We’ve started a “conserve energy” program at our house, and we were shocked that unplugging appliances not in use saves us about $30 each month in electricity. Can’t get much easier than that…

  29. becky
    April 22, 2009 | 2:49 pm

    Here is my green tip for the contest … if you MUST use paper towels for some things around the house, put them in the garage. And put a stack of rags under the sink. You will think twice before rummaging through the garage to get the paper, when the cloth is right at you fingertips. We did this 2 weeks ago and have cut our paper habit to just nuking our bacon in the microwave.

  31. Bena
    April 22, 2009 | 3:09 pm

    My tip is vinegar in the rinse cycle for washing clothes. They come out soft and help rinse out residue soap! It’s a earth and sensitive skin friendly alternative to those awful fabric softners.

  32. Hudson's Mom
    April 22, 2009 | 3:46 pm

    Here is my tip for my second entry:
    Make earth day a holiday your whole family celebrates: take the family out to clean up a park together and sort all the trash for recycling. If you don’t recycle at home and don’t have a few extra dollars to go out and buy recycling bins find some old boxes, cut them to the appropriate size and decorate the outside with wrapping paper, paint, old news paper, etc, and you have a re-cycled recycling bin!

  43. Kimm at Reinvented

    My tip would be to mop floors with vinegar and hot water. This mixture cleans great, and leaves no sticky residue.

  44. NotesToMySister
    April 23, 2009 | 7:31 am

    The 7th Gen hand dishwashing liquid is the best I’ve found. What a great give-away. I’ve made the commitment to green our cleaning. What a great feeling to clean the house and know it really is clean!

  45. bekahcubed
    April 23, 2009 | 8:05 am

    A quick green tip I’ve been practicing since I started trying to “go green”:

    Don’t buy stuff.

    Yep, that’s it. I’ve found that by curbing fast food visits, impulse buys, and other and sundry unnecessary purchases I’ve massively cut down on my waste (and kept my checkbook happy too!)

  46. Mama K
    April 23, 2009 | 10:57 am

    Me Please! I like their toilet bowl cleaner. :)

  47. Mama K
    April 23, 2009 | 10:59 am

    My green tip:
    Start replacing disposable products with reusable. Cloth napkins and cleaning rags are a very simple yet effective way to be greener and save some money in the process.

  48. Stacy at Exceedingly Mundane
    April 23, 2009 | 12:50 pm

    I use pearl sea sponges instead of tampons. They are reusable and you don’t throw out a bunch of tampons. You can also get Mama cloths which are cloth pads instead of disposable pads.

    We installed a low-flow shower head in the bathroom. It only takes a touch of a button to reduce the water flow while soaping up or shaving. We also don’t run the water anymore while brushing our teeth.

    Green living tip: don’t buy disposable plates and napkins for picnics. Pick up reusable plates, napkins, and cutlery at garage sales or thrift stores, and make a picnic set for yourself that can be used over and over again.

    Use canvas totes! I forget about this all the time when I’m shopping but it really does make a difference! Store them in the car so if you stop to pick up groceries, etc. unexpectedly, you’re prepared! When you forget, save the plastic bags and use them as garbage bags for smaller garbages, like the one in the bathroom.

    I hang all my laundry- towels, bedding, blankets, jeans- everything on hangers inside the house to dry. I have three folding “X” shaped clothes racks and I use the shower curtain rods over the bathtubs. I sometimes use the dryer to soften jeans and towels after they are dried. When I do use the dryer I use dryer balls to take out wrinkles and to speed drying.

  191. Jennifer M
    April 29, 2009 | 1:33 pm

    To go green, we have eliminated paper towels and napkins, and disposable wraps/covers/lunchbox containers. We use CFLs and have everything on power strips, which we shut off when not in use. We recycle, Freecycle, and compost.

    We always use Seventh Generation at my house. But my roommate decided to buy more dishsoap when we ran out. She bought a “green” brand but it is terrible. I don’t want to waste it… but I really want our normal soap back.

    I use Seventh Generation products due to allergies. It is amazing what is considered toxic in most mainstream brands. Love the washing powder from this company!

    Thanks for offering this contest!

  213. Ms. Hollis
    April 30, 2009 | 4:36 am

    Well, I have to tell you that for quite a while I have entertained the idea of toilet training my cat via the human toilet.

    Cat litter really bothers me. My cat is such a sweet one for letting me make the most of his litter.

    However if any cat parents here really seriously have wondered about cutting down on cat litter…

    It can be done. You can train your cat to use the toilet.

    Checkout this toilet training site for cats below and just know that in South Korea, it was always always always closer to 10.00 USD for what we would consider a $2.00 bag in the states. It was a big ouch for me living there for almost 3 years.

    Good luck with the choice if you decide to do it. Take care. Happy winning!

    My tip for going green is a very simple one, but if we all do it, it could make such a huge impact. Many stores (Walgreens, Wal-Mart, etc.) have canvas shopping bags for purchase for about 99 cents each. Buy some – use them – carry them with you – think of all of the plastic that won’t be sitting in our landfills. I also am a knitter, and I hunt the thrift shops to find lovely sweaters with yarn that I can unravel and recycle into a more modern, fashionable garment.

  216. Sarah Hirsch

  222. Laureen
    April 30, 2009 | 3:45 pm

    I try to use things that will be recycled or thrown away anyway to contain other recyclables/garbage. This avoids throwing plastic and paper bags into the landfills. (For example, I save and use empty dry cat food bags to dispose of dirty kitty litter (and keep it (well closed) until it is full – lots of plastic bags saved there, right?!!) I also used empty cereal boxes or other paper boxes as paper recycling bins. I always have a slim box under the kitchen sink to collect the paper recycling for the week. Come recycling pick-up day, I just put that box out (and don’t have to retrieve a plastic recycling bin after pick-up). Thanks for the chance to win!

    My tip is for a green clean to your stainless steel: Cut a lemon in half and dip the fresh juicy side in baking soda. Use the lemon to scrub the stainless steel. If you have a sink disposal, you can just chop the lemon half up for a disposal deodorizer!

    green tip: consider keeping a small bucket beneath your bathtub faucet when you shower. It will fill quickly and can be used for flushing the toilet. Toilets account for over 25% of a typical households water usage!

    My green living tip is to clear slow drains with a combination of vinegar, baking soda, and boiling water (like a science class volcano). Make healthier than those drain cleaners.

    Install a garbage disposal system if you are unable to compost or don’t want to compost. It is better for the environment to dispose of food waste that way then to just throw it out.

    My tip for Earth Day is stop your bills from coming in the mail and pay them online. Not only is it more convenient but it saves a ton of paper. It’s amazing how much paper is wasted with the phone bill and the car insurance bills being 20 pages long!

  298. Dillon
    May 3, 2009 | 3:46 am

    Go green tip-print double sided. Ask your kids’ teachers if they can turn in homework double sided, when you’re printing directions, anything just print on both sides.

  299. Greg
    May 3, 2009 | 3:48 am

    My earth day tip is to find someone to car pool with. If there isn’t someone at work you can do it with then there are websites you can go to to find someone to share a ride with. Save gas money and get to use carpool lane.

  300. Dan
    May 3, 2009 | 3:49 am

    My eco tip is to pledge to go vegetarian just 1 day per week. This saves a lot of money and lessens your impact on the environment. Plus, once you go veg for one day you can expand from there.

  301. Jan
    May 3, 2009 | 3:50 am

    My tip for everyone is to wash their laundry in cold water. You really don’t need to use hot water and you’ll save a lot of energy by washing all loads in cold water.

  302. Rachel Robertson
    May 3, 2009 | 5:44 am

    My eco tip is if you do not have any eco-friendly products try to find as many toxic free ways of cleaning as possible. Water and vinegar clean windows beautifully and you do not get those streaks which are so annoying. If you find any ants which love to come inside in summer, just put a little salt on the windowsill or in a corner. It gets rid of ants and there it is completely toxic free.

  303. Melinda

    Green Living Tip: Baking soda is great for exfoliating your face. Put a teaspoon or two in the palm of your hand and mix to form a paste with water (you can also add a bit of facewash to the mixture). GENTLY rub the mixture in a circular motion all over your face and neck, then rinse. I do his twice a week, and I love how smooth and soft it makes my skin feel.

  319. Julie K

    My green tip is: instead of running your tap water for a minute to make it cold to drink, fill a jug of water and keep it in the fridge for an icy cold drink. Use a refillable water bottle and you can eliminate buying water.

  321. Jennifer M
    May 3, 2009 | 11:41 am

    Going Green was our number one Resolution this New Year. We have made great strides from recycling/reusing everything we can, given up bottled water, growing our own organic herbs and veggies and composting.

    But we still have a long way to go! Winning this prize would be a major help for us during this very tight budget time!

    My green tip: Instead of buying plastic water bottles that are bad for the environment, buy a reusable water bottle and water filtration pitcher.

  326. Heather C
    May 3, 2009 | 12:43 pm

    This would be great to try. Now maybe the kinder can help clean, since these are safer than the norm.

    Green tip: Use a lemon and course salt to clean your chrome sink. Put the stopper in the sink, sprinkle salt all over and then use half a lemon to scour. Shiny!!
