Looking After the Environment with Seventh Generation: Giveaway

*sponsored post with Seventh Generation*

 

I live in a beautiful part of the country and enjoy the perks of this with long coastal walks with stunning views that still take my breath away after all this time.

 

Beach - Cornwall

 

I get to enjoy living where I do, but I also feel a bit of a responsibility to help keep it as wonderful as it is. I feel protective of where I live and do small things to try to look after it.

 

From taking a bag with me when I go to the beach to pick up our own rubbish and anyone else’s rubbish that we come across – a 2 minute beach clean can make such a difference if lots of people do it and I love that I often see others doing the same down here. To teaching the boys why they mustn’t ever drop litter, having solar panels on our roof and recycling as much as we can.

 

I am always happy to find new ways to do my bit and look after beautiful Cornwall (and indeed the environment as a whole) in some small way. I’ve been introduced to a new way to help do this, as Seventh Generation invited me to try out their products.

 

Seventh Generation are a brand who have developed a cleaning range with the environment in mind. Over the years they have tried hard to make their products more environmentally friendly with biodegradable formulas, using plant-based ingredients as much as possible and avoiding dyes, synthetic fragrances and artificial brighteners.

 

They are also an animal friendly company as they don’t and won’t test on animals.

 

Their laundry detergent is actually clear, not an unnatural shade of blue or green. The lovely people at Seventh Generation sent me the products below and you can win yourself a hamper the same as mine via the Gleam widget at the bottom of the page!

 

Seventh Generation Hamper

 

Inside the hamper is:

 

Seventh Generation laundry detergent for sensitive skin

Seventh Generation natural dish liquid

Seventh Generation toilet bowl natural cleaner

Seventh Generation all-purpose natural cleaner

Seventh Generation glass and surface natural cleaner

Seventh Generation free and clear concentrated natural laundry detergent

 

My verdict on the Seventh Generation products? They work just as well as the products that do contain more chemicals and non natural substances. So they work well, plus I have felt good this week knowing that my cleaning was a bit more environmentally friendly than normal!

 

Washing with seventh generation

 

You can now buy Seventh Generation products at Tesco and there is even the following code GRXN7Y to use online, which is valid until 15/07/17 or until it has been used by 5000 people, as the code for £3 off the Seventh Generation laundry range for the first 5000 people to use it! So be quick and see what Seventh Generation products are in your local Tesco shop.

    We do a lot of recycling, including donating no-longer wanted or needed items like clothes & toys etc. to our local charity shops. We’re also huge advocates for Love Food, Hate Waste, Food wastage is one of my biggest bugbears.

    We only use non-toxic and cruelty free poducts so I’m intrigued by Seventh Generation. I’ve just started using their detergent, first time yesterday. A welcome addition to the uk market.

    Would love to give these products a go, to be honest never heard of them before, so i am all for trying something new, i do recycle and i do worry about the enviroment, so we as a family always do what we can

    I recycle as much stuff as I can, have compost heaps and a water butt. The gutter on the shed runs off into the pond.

    I don’t tend to leave electrical appliances on if I am not using them.

    I also use the dirty water after I’ve cleaned my fish and newt tanks to water the plants – it also feeds my plants (eg fish poo, uneaten food) and the same with the dirty water after I’ve cleaned the fish pond filter.

    It’s not just about being environmentally friendly, it saves you money too.

    We recycle as much as we can (though I often get confused about what goes in what bin and have to ask my husband!). I’m also paranoid about turning off lights when we leave a room – I drive my family mad and follow them around turning them off!

    We turn off everything in the house before going to bed, nothing is left on stand by or plugged in. We also recycle as much as possible , buy products that are made from recycled materials or with very little packaging and use environmentally friendly cleaning products. We also don’t buy anything that contains microbeads or microplastics and as palm oil is found in almost everything I try to buy products that contain palm oil from sustainable sources/plantations as well as making sure any seafood products are sustainable choices and not depleted species.

    I am a bit of a nut when it comes to recycling. If I see one of the kids put something in the bin that can be recycled I make them get it out. We also use LED bulbs & I make everone switch them off if they are not in the room.
