For 20 years, the closely held Burlington, Vermont-based company has been at the forefront of a cultural change in consumer behavior and business ethics.

The company derives its name from the Great Law of the Iroquois that states, "In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations." Every time you use a Seventh Generation product you are making a difference by saving natural resources, reducing pollution, keeping toxic chemicals out of the environment and making the world a safer place for this and the next seven generations.

Seventh Generation offers a complete line of non-toxic household products

Seventh Generation brand-name products include: non-chlorine bleached, 100% recycled paper towels, bathroom and facial tissues, and napkins; non-toxic, phosphate-free cleaning, dish and laundry products; plastic trash bags made from recycled plastic; chlorine-free baby diapers, training pants, and baby wipes; and chlorine-free feminine care products, including organic cotton tampons.

I was fortunate to receive a Free & Clear starter kit to review.Below is a picture of  what was included in the kit.



                                   The Free & Clear starter kit includes
Disinfecting Multi-Surface
Disinfecting Bathroom
Disinfecting Wipes - 35 ct. 
Laundry Detergent – F&C 32 oz
Liquid Fabric Softener – F&C 40 oz
Dish liquid 
All- Purpose Cleaner
Auto-Dish Pacs 
Glass Cleaner
Natural Paper Towels
Seventh Gen Recycled Bag

*Please note: The Disinfectants have Thymol scent (from Thyme oil). These are NOT considered free & clear, but they are great for immune-depressed households or those with small children, hence why they are included here. The scent is essential oil – not synthetic - and dissipates quickly


I have been cleaning like crazy with these products testing them all out as much as I can! And let me say I have not one bad thing to say about them! So far from what I see they clean just as good as the previous products I used but with out the harsh smell and chemicals!
I love that I can clean any room in the house without the worry of what I am spraying around my family.I use to clean the bathroom with the window wide open and the door shut so my son couldn't come in while I was cleaning because of the smell and it worried me what was in the products that I was using.I tend to use a lot of vinegar and water with a tiny bit of soap in a spray bottle in other areas in the house because of it.

And just like stated above the disinfectants do have a slight smell that does go away quickly but nothing at all like the products I used previously.The other products would actually give me a burning feeling in my throat.

As you can see in my picture I used most of the paper towels already.I know some people don't like to use paper towels but if you have children and pets like we do it's kind of hard not to have to use them sometimes.The Seventh Generation paper towels are natural so it makes me feel better about using them.

I will be purchasing Seventh Generation products to use in my home.If you already purchase their products or are going to they have coupons you can get on their site here .All you have to do is register which is very quick and easy and this is what you get when you do.

    I love Seventh Generation. It is one of the only brands I use to clean my home. I like that they are actaully aroma free for the most part. I also like that they make chlorine free personal products like pads and diapers. That's hard to find!

    I learned that Seventh Generation is the first cleaning products company in North America to pay the producers of our palm kernel oil a premium (through the purchase of sustainable palm kernel oil credits) that directly supports their sustainability practices.
