Going green is more than just a trendy slogan, its even more then being environmentally friendly, its about making healthy choices. The last two decades have seen huge change, a questioning into what we put in and on our bodies. When I go food shopping I check the ingredients and I am always comforted by a very short list. If I pick up a bottle of iced tea and it reads “black tea leaves, sugar from sugar cane, and citric acid” I feel good about buying it. I don’t want to eat a chemistry experiment or have one touching my body.
My Bride is even more aggressive at this than I am. When we first moved in together she was very critical of my cleaning products. I reluctantly switched. When a choice didn’t work, we switched to something else. Despite my reservations, I am happy with this decision. I feel that all of the alternate products that we have adopted have worked out just as well as their chemically counter parts.
One of the most common brands that we have started using is “Seventh Generation“. It’s a relatively new brand, founded in the early 1990’s. Until about 2 years ago, I was unaware of it and as I mentioned prior, I was skeptical. I am happy to report that I was wrong. I enjoy their products and would recommend them to others.
As my wife and I move towards starting a family, I have kept an eye out for products that would work for us. One of the first products you are going to need if you are going to enter parenthood is diapers. Seventh Generation make chemical free, hypoallergenic diapers right here in America.
A 144 count pack sells on Amazon for $43.96, even less if you are an Amazon Mom or subscribe and save member. The reviews are very strong, it seems like many parents are opting to go chemical free and I agree with them. A safe, American made product will be at the top of my Daddy grocery list. If you are a new parent you might consider doing the same.
