Seventh Generation Back to School Kit- Review and Giveaway


It is Back to School time!

Every year we purchase school supplies for our children, hoping that we are giving them all of the physical tools they will need to have a successful year. Though we may not think about it, starting off the year germ free is just as important! Seventh Generation's line of products offer a great defense against all of the germs your child could come in contact with.

Here's a quick video that shares some info on the history of germs...






Seventh Generation cleaners use safe ingredients to disinfect surfaces of everyday germs keeping your family healthy! Here are a few more great tips from Seventh Generation and MyBlogSpark on ways to keep your children healthy as they head back to school...

This school year, Seventh Generation is sharing tips from best-selling author and pediatrician, Dr. Alan Greene, to help parents protect their child’s health during back-to-school season. Dr. Greene suggests taking the following precautions:
Optimize the immune system


Reap the benefits of probiotics like those found in yogurt. A recent study showed that children who received enough probiotics daily throughout the cold and flu season had a significant reduction in the number of illnesses they had and, when they did get sick, the symptoms were both milder and didn't last as long.
Be sure your child is getting plenty of vitamin D from the sun, from food, or from a supplement.
Build a strong foundation. Good food, good sleep, and good physical activity all help the immune system to flourish.


Be wise about reducing unnecessary exposure to harmful germs


Teach children the key times to clean their hands in the classroom. The most important times include after sneezing, coughing or using the restroom, upon leaving "high-risk" places (recess, naptime, play stations) and before meals or snacks.


Sixty percent of teachers surveyed said that they request that parents donate disinfecting wipes to the classroom. Seventh Generation’s disinfecting wipes kill 99.99% of germs* naturally using the active ingredient thyme, a component of thyme oil which is derived from the herb thyme.




Stress the importance of not touching their eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.


Demonstrate to your children how to cover their mouth and nose for every cough and sneeze. This simple maneuver has spectacular results in decreasing the spread of viruses and bacteria floating about the room, waiting to be inhaled.

I was sent a great Seventh Generation Back to School Kit to start the year off right. I received a roll of Seventh Generation recycled paper towels, a box of Seventh Generation tissues, a bottle of Seventh Generation Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner in Lemongrass & Thyme Scent and TWO 35 Count Containers of Seventh Generation Disinfecting Wipes in Lemongrass & Thyme Scent.

I love the Seventh Generation Cleaners I was sent. Both the tissues and paper towels are made from recycled paper. The disinfecting spray and wipes are made from botanically pure plant extracts which is better for both my family and the planet. The plastic packaging is recyclable after you are done using the product. Not to mention, the disinfecting spray and wipes have a great scent too!


Along with all of the great household cleaning products and paper products, the kit included a great sling type Seventh Generation backpack! How Cool!


And the best part?????




One of my lucky readers will win the same kit!
