Want to enter for a chance to win?
Seventh Generation is committed to becoming the world’s most trusted brand of authentic, safe, and environmentally-responsible products for a healthy home. Their products range from household cleaners and laundry detergent to chlorine-free diapers and 100% Recycled Bathroom Tissue.
All of their feminine care products are chlorine-free and their tampons are made with certified organic cotton.
The problem with using chlorine for bleaching is that dangerous toxins known as dioxins are the by-product. Studies show that dioxins collect in the fatty tissues of animals and humans, and even low levels of exposure can lead to cancer, endometriosis, birth defects, and reproductive disorders. It can also irritate your skin, so if your lady parts are sensitive, chlorine-free is definitely the way to go.
Another plus is that chlorine-free tampons are often made solely with organic cotton, and contain no polyester, rayon, plastics, or other synthetic ingredients. Organic cotton is grown without pesticides, so it’s safer for the farmers who grow it, safer for the environment, and also safer for you. Since a woman will go through about 11,000 tampons in her lifetime, it’s worth the splurge to decrease you exposure to chlorine and other chemicals.
We want to help you be the healthiest you can be in 2010 so we are excited to partner with Seventh Generation to offer you a large tote bag filled with a variety of their chlorine-free tampons and pads!
