Seventh Generation Toxin Freedom Fighters #FightToxins

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Seventh Generation. I received a promotional item and product samples as a thank you for participating.

Did you know that the Toxic Substances Control Act hasn’t been evaluated since 1976! That needs to change, after all it’s been 37 years and it’s failing to protect the health of all of us! There are so many things that we are creating and putting into our environment that aren’t good for us. Or for our little people.I value these little people too much to be okay with that!

How I’m hoping to help.

I’m joining in with the Toxin Freedom Fighters Campaign along with Seventh Generation. Their goal is to collect 100,000 signatures and deliver them to Congress on April 30, 2014. So it’s getting close! The idea is that that signatures will strengthen the movement behind chemical reform and encourage our Congress men and women to change these laws. 

Why I care.

There are more than 80,000 synthetic chemicals that have been introduced to the market since the TSCA was passed in 1976. Because of this, the EPA only requires testing on less than 10%! Yuck!

What that means to me.

Those chemicals can do harmful things do our bodies. Irreversible things. Scary things. In fact, scientists have linked exposure to toxic chemicals to many health risks, such as Cancer, Alzheimer’s, learning disabilities, asthma, birth defects, and various reproductive problems!

How can you help make a change?

Join me in signing the Toxin Freedom Fighters Campaign and become a Seventh Generation Toxin Freedom Fighter. Push for change. Get the TSCA revised. Show law makers that we care and that we want to make a difference.

  1. As a mom, I find it really scary that there are so many chemicals around that my kids are potentially exposed to. I think Seventh Generation is a great company and I use several of their products.

  2. I have candida, so I know how very important it is to keep as many toxins as possible out of my body. Cleaning toxin free make things so much better.

  3. I haven’t used everything from the Seventh Generation Line, but I have used their laundry detergent. I found it did a great job cleaning our clothes without leaving chemicals or toxins behind on them.

  4. What an important issue to get behind. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. It’s scary the amount of toxic chemicals that are in our everyday products.

  5. Toxins are such a scary thing, especially with kids! What a cool campaign!

  6. Using chemical free products is so important! My skin is so much better since we have stopped using all chemicals!

  7. First.. what an adorable pic! So cute! And.. wow! 80,000 synthetic chemicals? I had no idea! So glad Seventh Generation started this initiative and thank YOU for helping us get involved!

  8. I have been working hard to keep toxins out of my home. I switched our diets and started using natural holistic alternatives like doTERRA Essential Oils for my family healthcare and even cleaning. I will look a little closer at seventh generation products as well

  9. I’m always amazed at how many chemicals are in things – especially cleaners. Do they really help clean or just harming the environment? We’ve been moving our entire household to more organic and natural cleaners. Good for Seventh Generation for leading the charge!

    After reading this I am going to go through my house and try to kick out all the toxins

  11. Love those little “toxin freedom fighter” costumes. Those kids are adorable. What neat way to get people thinking about how nasty most cleaners are and how full to toxins they are.

  12. Not sure why it hasn’t been changed. It seems beyond negligent, considering how much things have changed in those almost four decades.

  13. As I get older I am really starting to think more about where and what substances I have in my home. Kudos for Seventh Generation for doing something to keep us all safer.

  14. Signed the campaign!

    Pretty much everything we get is Seventh Generation! I can’t believe the chemicals that are in so much of what we buy. They really need to change what’s allowed in stuff that people, especially kids, get exposed to.

  15. Once I became a Mom, Seventh Generation became my go-to cleaning product for our son’s bathroom and play area.
    It helps that his preschool uses it too!

  16. I think this campaign from Seventh Generation is great. I have been trying to reduce toxins in our home, but I could still do more.

  17. Seventh Generation is a great company. I frequently buy their products when I stock up!

  18. We made the switch to Seventh Generation about a year and a half ago and haven’t looked back yet.

  19. It’s so disturbing to read this… apparently big $$ is more important than potentially harming our families. But I hate to say that I wasn’t really aware of all the toxins around us until I had children. Only then did I start researching what was going on around me. Thanks for sharing this message – I signed it! 🙂

  20. Sandra VanHoey says:

    I definitely signed this one and agree more has to be done

  21. I just signed and I hope we can make a change in this we are very close to the goal thanks for sharing and I will be showing the word.

  22. I didn’t know half of this and am kicking myself for not being better educated. Thank you so much for the information!

  23. Thanks for sharing. We switched to Seventh Generation dish soap and laundry soap. It feel better knowing it’s not toxic (and not as harmful to the environment). The Seventh Generation laundry soap does not disturb my allergies which is great!
