Do you consider yourself to be "Green"? Do you live an environmentally friendly life?
I do try to be environmentally conscious. I recycle my cans, plastics and paper. I compost, both in my own compost bin and the city run green bin program. I use cloth shopping bags, reusable water bottles and lunch bags. I don't use a clothes drier, I use a clothes line in my yard. Sure, there are other things that I could be doing but I really do believe that if enough people do the little things, it will make a difference in the long run.
Seventh Generation is a company dedicated to providing consumers with an environmentally friendly choice.

I was given the opportunity to try a package of Seventh Generation diapers and wipes. Having worked in daycare with infants and toddlers for years, I have seen just about every kind of disposable diaper that had been made in the past 13 years. I have seen some "environmentally friendly" and "made from recycled materials" diapers in the past and let's just say that when I became a parent, I knew I wouldn't be spending my money on those diapers. So, I was a little unsure of what to expect from the Seventh Generations Free & Clear Diapers. Luckily, I have been pleasantly surprised with every aspect of these diapers. They fit my busy two and a half year old nicely and stay securely fastened through all the running. climbing, playing and well, just being a boy, that he puts them through. The Seventh Generation Free and Clear Wipes have also performed well in cleaning up many messes including but not limited to the ones in the diapers!
I have yet to try any of the Seventh Generation cleaning products, but look forward to doing that in the coming weeks. Join the Seventh Generation Nation to get access to Seventh Gen information and coupons.
