Seventh Generation Laundry Products- NO OPTICAL BRIGHTENERS- Giveaway

I love using Seventh Generation products because the quality and the fact that they aren't harmful to our planet.




I recently became aware of another interesting fact about Seventh Generation Laundry Products. Seventh Generation Laundry Products contain NO Optical Brighteners.

What are Optical Brighteners?

According to scientific research, these can cause allergic reactions, are toxic to small fish and other aquatic life, and can pollute your waterways.


When ultraviolet light hits optical brighteners coating your clothing, the brighteners convert UV rays into visible light to create an optical illusion. This tricks the eye into thinking the clothing is whiter and brighter, and therefore cleaner than it really is.

So how can you avoid these optical brighteners? Seventh Generation makes it easy because their laundry detergents are not only free of optical brighteners, but they’re also non-toxic . In addition, because Seventh Generation liquid laundry detergents are both hypo-allergenic and biodegradable, you can rest easy knowing you made a considerate choice for your family and the environment.
 

Thanks to Seventh Generation and MyBlogSpark, I was able to do an at home experiment comparing my other everday detergent and Seventh Generations products.  They sent me a black light, two identical organic cotton tshirts and the Seventh Generation line of Laundry Products. One tshirt was to be washed with my regular detergent, the other was to be washed in my Seventh Generation detergent. While my pictures didn't come out very well, I will show the results that you get from this experiment.
 

 
As you can see above, the tshirt washed in regular laundry detergent glows in the black light because of the optical brighteners, while the tshirt washed in Seventh Generation laundry detergent does not glow.
 
Quite interesting results!
 
All the harmful chemicals that we come in contact with on a day to day basis... do we really need a chemical that makes something "appear" to be brighter and cleaner? I think I  would you rather have the clean, chemical free shirt!
