a new project w/ seventh generation (#fighttoxins)

Sharing some exciting news today: I'm teaming up with Seventh Generation over the next few months to help spread the word about their Toxin Freedom Fighter Campaign

 

Here's a crazy, eye-opening statistic for you:

More than 80,000 chemicals available in the United States have never been 
fully tested for their toxic effects on our health and environment. 

And according to the National Resources Defense Council, our main chemical safety law (which is 37 years old, by the way) -- the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) -- makes it virtually impossible for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to take action against dangerous chemicals. So dangerous, in fact, that some of those very chemicals are known to cause cancer (and other serious health issues).

Here's the GOOD news: Seventh Generation, which has spent the last 25 years creating a healthy home by delivering plant derived products using bio-based ingredients, is taking a stand on the issue. Here's where YOU can have a hand in real change. The Toxin Freedom Fighters Campaign is collecting signatures (with a goal of 100,000) and headed to Congress on April 30, 2014. The signatures will strengthen the movement behind chemical reform and will demand that decision-makers change the necessary laws. 

Simply put, we deserve better. And by signing this petition, Seventh Generation is giving us a voice.

I'm really thrilled to be working on this campaign with Seventh Generation. I've long been a fan of their products (especially since becoming a parent), but additionally, I love that this is a large company with heart. A company that believes in making a difference. A company that is committed to our earth, our health and a toxin-free life. And they're willing to fight for it. 

Join me in spreading the word about the Toxin Freedom Fighters Campaign. You can sign the petition and spread the word HERE. I'll be sharing posts, a Pinterest board and tweeting about all things Seventh Generation periodically over the next few months, so be on the lookout.
