Seventh Generation Giveaway!!!!!!

As we neared 100 facebook fans, I wanted to do something extra special!! So I figured a giveaway was a good way to go. :) Since I love the company Seventh Generation and they are very baby & kid-friendly in their products, I asked them if they would be willing to sponsor this giveaway for us. Being the AWESOME company they are, they immediately jumped on board!!
So, one lucky mom is going to walk away with an amazing prize package! Here's what it holds:
Natural Baby Starter Kit
One pack of Diapers (you request size)
Baby Wipes Tub
Baby Wipes Refill
Baby Laundry Detergent
Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner
Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner
Disinfecting Wipes - 35 ct.
  All Purpose Cleaner
Natural Paper Towels
Seventh Gen Reusable Bag
Their only request was that I also try each of these products (which they sent me!) and provide an honest review of them. Hey, NO problem!! So here is my honest opinion............ :)
Diapers - I REALLY like their diapers. I think they work great, hold leaks (maybe not perfect for my heavy wetter overnight though), and hold up well. I love that they are chlorine-free, hypoallergenic, fragrance and latex free for my little guy's sensitive skin. One of my favorite things about them (and this is probably weird!), but I love that they are neutral-oatmeal colored and don't have goofy characters. The biggest thing is you have to watch out for is their sizing. I think that they tend to run small, so even if your child wears size 4, they might easily fit size 5.
Baby Wipes - I have to admit, I'm kind of a Huggies snob when it comes to wipes. And once you've used Huggies wipes, I think nothing else is quite as thick! That being said, I think the wipes did a great job of cleaning and were very moist, which I liked a lot.
Laundry Detergent - I do use cloth diapers much of the time, and as I said before, my little guy has extremely sensitive skin. So I have to be very careful in what detergent I use for his diapers. I have found that 7th Generation is one of the few laundry detergents that I can use, so I love that. The only downside is, the last time I purchased it, it cost $10 and I personally think that's a little too high for detergent. :)
Disinfecting Multi-Surface Cleaner - one of the first "green" switches I made when I had my baby, was to look for cleaning products that were safe & non-toxic for using around children. I definitely like their cleaners and because they always have $1.00 off coupons on their website, I can usually get them for a great price! Their website promises - Formulated to be safe for your family and the environment, this product does not create harsh fumes and is a non-toxic, biodegradable alternative to conventional petroleum-based cleaners.
Disinfecting Bathroom Cleaner - I had not tried this bathroom cleaner before and I thought it worked very well. Again, a great option when your toddler likes to hug the toilet. :-/
Disinfecting Wipes - with kids around, we can go through these by the canful! Love having these around for quick cleans.
Seventh Gen Reusable Bag - can always use a nice reusuable bag to use while shopping or throwing extra toys in or whatever!
All Purpose Cleaner & Natural Paper Towels - these 2 items were on backorder for me, so unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to try them out yet!

I have wondered about the Graham's diapers in the church nursery--now I know!! I also don't care for the cartoon characters on the diapers. So, as I'm an avid diaper collector in preperation of baby Grace's arrival--I'll go with the diapers.

I'm also a big fan of cleaning wipes. They are so convenient!

Michelle said...

I would love to try any of the cleaners. I cloth diaper so the diapers would be the last item on my list of things to try. I haven't tried anything from this company yet so I am open to try anything!

Gertie said...

We love Seventh Generation diapers....not only that, but our pediatrician said he thinks they're probably better than other mainstream brands, too!

We switched to all natural cleaning products when I was pregnant and we currently use Method. I would love to try these - particularly the diapers. I'm with you - I could do without the characters and graffiti.

Also, do you think huggies wipes are thicker than Pampers Sensitive Thick Care? My cub has sensitive skin too and we've always used those.

Love their diapers, but unfortunately we can't use them as overnight diapers--they always leak. And yes, as parents actively avoiding "branding" our kids, anything without a brand name, cartoon character, etc, always gets an A+ in our book.

BTW, the all purpose cleaner works great. I have a few I got for free when Recyclebank offered them as rewards.

As we are out of diapers already I would look forward for those natural cleaning products to try..:) I always used everything natural in Europe, so coming here was a new adventure to discover new brands and e.t.c. Haven't heard about 7thgeneration yet...:)

I really like the diapers, they are soft and clean looking, with no crazy pictures on them! I have also used some cleaning agents, and it just feels GOOD using the product.

I'd love to try any of the cleaners. I'm always wondering how the "eco-friendly" stuff cleans. :)

I'd like to try their diapers. Being a mom of twins, I definitely go through a TON of diapers and anything that's better for the environment would be great!

I would love to try the cleaning products...I have a 4 month old and I don't like using harsh chemicals around her. I also would love to try the wipes!

Nicole Marie said...

I have used the diapers and like them a lot. I have also used the multi-surface cleaner and it worked well. I do not like using chemical filled cleaners around the babies, so seventh generation is great stuff!

I would love to try the cleaners esp with babies and dogs always running around our house!

I would love to try any of the cleaners at our house.

Would love to get the diapers as I may have 4 in diapers soon. =)

Julie Parker said...

Have tried the diapers and thought they were nice. Would really be interested in trying the multisurface cleaner and disinfecting wipes (as I feel like I rip through these pretty fast too!)
