I love Seventh Generation. It is a company that is doing well by doing good, and I totally support that! The majority of our household cleaners are Seventh Generation products, and we’ve been very pleased with their ability to tackle dirt and grime of various sorts.
Did you know that Seventh Generation also makes feminine hygiene products? I didn’t know until just a few days ago that they made organic tampons. Organic tampons don’t contain rayon, which is typically treated with chlorine dioxide, a chemical commonly used in pesticides! Yuck!
Here’s another reason that Seventh Generation rocks: right now, they have a program going on called “Let’s Talk Period,” and it is a wonderful site dedicated to informing people about ovarian cancer, the fifth leading cause of cancer death among women.
Seventh Generation is committed to donating $1 for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund for every person that signs up at Let’s Talk Period (up to $10,000). Funds will be used for programs supporting women fighting ovarian cancer.
To help get the word out, Seventh Generation wants to give one lucky Stuff Parents Need reader a Feminine Care Starter Kit! The contest will run until September 21st at 11:59pm EST when a winner will be selected using Random.org. Open to residents of the United States.
Mandatory entry: Sign up for Let’s Talk Period. You’ll get some great information about Ovarian Cancer, the Ovarian Cancer Fund will get $1 donated to them and you’ll have a chance to win some great Seventh Generation products! Let me know in the comments below that you signed up, and that will count as your contest entry.
