About the laundry products;
“As a mom, you already do so much to protect your family- buckling seat belts, cooking healthy meals and requiring bike helmets. But did you know that the laundry detergent you may be using could contain little-known chemicals called optical brighteners?”
According to scientific research, these can cause allergic reactions, are toxic to small fish and other aquatic life, and can pollute your waterways.
When ultraviolet light hits optical brighteners coating your clothing, the brighteners convert UV rays into visible light to create an optical illusion. This tricks the eye into thinking the clothing is whiter and brighter, and therefore cleaner than it really is.
So how can you avoid these optical brighteners? Seventh Generation makes it easy because their laundry detergents are not only free of optical brighteners, but they´re also non-toxic . In addition, because Seventh Generation liquid laundry detergents are both hypo-allergenic and biodegradable, you can rest easy knowing you made a considerate choice for your family and the environment.
In my opinion:
With a family of six, we do a lot of laundry. My wife is in charge of this task in our household. She does laundry everyday. My mom was shocked when we told her we do 12 to 14 loads of laundry per week. If you think about it every day we have at least 6 shirts, 6 pants, and 24 socks not to mention under garments, linens, and towels.
My family and I like to do our part to conserve our resources. Seventh Generation laundry products do a great job helping us save our families resources as well as the Earth’s. Seventh Generation laundry products clean well so there is no need to re-wash.
