From the Great Law of the Iroquois: “In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.” Seventh Generation firmly believes in this philosophy and hence derived their company name from this principle. In every action that they make, Seventh Generation takes responsibility in all aspects of the business – from their non-toxic products to their 100% recycled paper products to their recycled and recyclable packaging. Their mission is, “To inspire a more conscious and sustainable world by being an authentic force for positive change”. The 20-some years company consider themselves to be the first socially-responsible company in the world and takes considerate measures to ensure that they not only uphold their responsibility to the planet, but that their suppliers, partners, shareholders, staff, and the public will do the same. Every Seventh Generation product that you purchase and use will help save natural resources, reduce pollution, and keep harmful toxic chemicals out of the environment.
Many of you may have already heard of Seventh Generation or even have a few products of theirs in your home. Some of you may not and if you’re interested in wanting to keep your home and your health as clean and toxic free as possible, then Seventh Generation products are a fantastic way to do that. My family and I have been using their products for many years and even before my son was born. When I choose a product to clean my home or to wash the dishes or launder my clothes, I take great care in choosing products that do not produce harmful fumes or residues that may be breathed in or set into my clothes. I’m also a big label reader and when I first discovered Seventh Generation products at the store, I saw that their packaging was unique and their labels describe exactly what their products offer. I also delved more into the background of the company and was happy to know that they take such great pride in their products and that they also donate a portion of their profits to charity. They are a company that proudly stands in what they believe in as well as helping educate the public and the government in the importance of responsible consumer products.
So what does Seventh Generation sell – you may ask? They sell basically everything you can use to clean your home (or anything you call home) as well as chlorine-free baby care and feminine care products. All of their products are non-toxic and they use sustainable palm kernal oil and recyled packaging. They strive to put their products in recyclable bottles and uses only natural renewable resources. Their phosphate-free cleaning products will not harm the environment and they even have a Free and Clear line which contains no fragrances which is great for people with certain sensitivities.
But if you do choose their products that contain fragrances, know that Seventh Generation uses only essential oils derived from natural resources such as Lavender, Lime, Oranges, Peppermint, Spearmint, and so forth. And although some of their products do contain preservatives for shelf life reasons, it is used in minimal amounts and as much plant-based as possible.
Seventh Generation is a company that constantly strives to find innovative ways to protect the environment and their consumers with their ingredient choices. With so many products to choose from, you can definitely find something suitable to your needs.

Seventh Generation generously offered me the Free and Clear Starter Set to try and to give away to one LUCKY reader! Although I do prefer my laundry detergent to smell nicely, the Free and Clear laundry detergent made my clothes smell nice and clean rather than “perfumed”. And the disinfecting products do contain Thymol(from Thyme oil). Although these are not considered free and clear, they are great for immune-depressed households or those with small children. The scent is essential oil – not synthetic – and dissipates quickly. The Free and Clear Set includes:
Disinfecting Multi Surface, Disinfecting Bathroom, Disinfecting Wipes (35 ct.), Laundry Detergent (Free and Clear 32 oz.), Liquid Fabric Softener (40 oz.), Dish Liquid, All-Purpose Cleaner, Auto Dish Pacs, Glass Cleaner, Natural Paper Towels (1 roll), Seventh Generation Recyled Bag
