Seventh Generation Wipes
Good for baby, good for the environment
Here’s an allergy product that not only helps clean up the messes your little one leaves behind (pun intended), it also benefits the environment!
Seventh Generation baby wipes pull double duty - they’re hypoallergenic and whitened without chlorine. Now here’s a wipe you can feel good about. You’re helping the environment by reducing chlorine; while also providing a safe and healthy product for your child.
Are you wondering why you should care if your baby wipes are whitened with chlorine? Well, whitening with chlorine creates dangerous toxins such as dioxin, furans and other chlorine compounds. Research clearly shows that children are more susceptible to chemical toxicity than adults. It also suggests that chlorine (and its by-products) cause serious problems in the environment. So the question you should ask yourself is: why would I want to risk my child’s health?
Seventh Generation actually has a whole line of products for the baby in your house, including diapers (also chlorine-free) and laundry liquid. Keep checking back because I’ll have more to say on these Seventh Generation products in my future reviews.
As for the wipes, I personally like them a lot. My only gripe is that they are more expensive than most other brands of wipes, but I’m willing to pay the price for a product that reduces harmful chemicals in the environment. I’m also willing to pay more for a product that keeps chemicals out of my home, and off of my child.
These baby wipes allow you to use them right from the soft plastic package, without the need for a dispenser tub. I like how the package closes tight and secure, and dispenses the wipes easily without muss or fuss. You can also buy these wipes in a hard plastic tub, which you can easily refill.
If you don’t like to carry a large size soft package around with you, Seventh Generation baby wipes are also available in travel size. Again, the wipes dispense nicely from the soft plastic package and seals well.
Seventh Generation is a company known for its environmental stand. Their name says it all, and according to their mission statement their products are based on the “Great Law of the Iroquois Confederacy.” This law states that all decisions must be considered, keeping in mind the impact of the decision on the seven following generations. Adhering to that perspective, the garbage we create today should pose no problem for our great-great-great-great-great grandchildren. Now that’s a philosophy I can support.
Seventh Generation baby wipes are not tested on animals.
