I participated in a campaign on behalf of Millennial Central for Seventh Generation. I received a promotional item and product samples as a thank you for participating.
How many times have you seen a child do what the kids below are doing?
I know I see my niece do these things all of the time! Have you thought about what they are putting in their mouths? “Well, I’m sure that plate and stuffed animal were just cleaned,” you may be thinking. But, have you ever thought about what they were cleaned with?
Have you ever heard of Seventh Generation? Seventh Generation is a company that has worked for 25 years to create products that are healthy solutions for the air, surfaces, fabrics, pets and people within our homes, communities and environment. Their products allow you to have a healthy home because they are derived from plants using bio-based ingredients. In other words, when you use their products, you know that that plate and that stuffed animal are not covered in toxic chemicals!
Did you know?
Did you know that over 80,000 chemicals in the US have never been fully tested for the effects they have on our health and environment?
Did you know exposure to toxic chemicals has been linked to numerous health risks including cancer, Alzheimer’s, asthma, birth defects, learning disabilities and reproductive problems?
Did you know that the Toxic Substances Control Act was passed in 1976 and (unlike other environmental laws) has never been updated? That is 37 years with no changes!
Did you know that since the 70’s tens of thousands of potentially harmful chemicals have been used without proper testing and without the companies who make them disclosing this to the public?
Did you know that Congress has the power to hold companies responsible for the safety of the ingredients they use?
Well, now that you do know, what are you going to do about it? How will you #FightToxins?
Help bring Congress to its knees
It is time for them to do something about all of these bad chemicals. They end up in our homes and then in our bodies. Seventh Generation is doing what they can to get 100,000 signatures by Earth Day and force a discussion with the government. Earth Day is coming up soon (April 24), so become a toxin freedom fighter today and sign the petition! Just click on the image below. And don’t forget to tell your friends and family so they can sign too.
When I signed the petition this morning, they had 96,929 signatures, so they are very close to the goal. Please help push them over the 100,000 mark and sign it today!
