Author: Seventh Generation

Seventh Generation and Earth Echo International have joined forces to launch a video contest in which young people can share how they are helping to create a toxin-free generation. Prizes include a Go Pro Premium camera, Patagonia gift certificates and Seventh Generation home and personal care products. 

 

"Both EarthEcho and Seventh Generation understand that young people have the power to change the world, one home, one school and one community at a time," said EarthEcho International co-founder and president Philippe Cousteau, Jr.  "The Campaign for Toxin-Free Generation contest and resources are designed to empower and equip today's youth with tools to make the world a better place."

 

"We're kindred spirits who want to inspire consumers to rid their lives of toxins. We both want to be their partners in that process and help people everywhere ignite a revolution that safeguards today's children and all of tomorrow's, too," said Seventh Generation Foundation Director, Ashley Orgain.

 

EarthEcho and Seventh Generation Foundation are providing tools and resources to inspire participants to take action in their own communities.  You can become part of The Campaign for a Toxin-Free Generation today by logging onto www.seventhgeneration.com/toxin-free/ and taking three simple steps:

I use baking soda and vinegar for many things: house cleaning, gardening/weed control and even drain unblocking. My "not-Drano" recipe: Pour half a cup of baking soda down the drain and follow it with a 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Let it sit for 20 mins – 1/2 hour and then pour about 2 quarts of boiling water down. Try this next time you find yourself dealing with an annoyingly slow- moving shower drain or kitchen sink. Have you tried this safe alternative to drano? (or have a different variation?)
