I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Seventh Generation. I received a promotional item and product samples as a thank you for participating.

Take a peek at your cleaning supplies.  Those same products that you are using to clean your home to protect your loved ones from germs and illness could actually be seriously harming them.  In fact there are more than 80,000 chemicals available in the United States that have never been fully tested for their toxic effects on our health and environment.  Even scarier is the fact that scientists have linked exposure to toxic chemicals to many health risks including cancer, Alzheimer’s, learning disabilities, asthma, birth defects, and various reproductive problems.

Shouldn’t the government be doing something to regulate these chemicals?  Well they did back in 1976 with the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), but it has never been updated!  Because of this there are currently tens of thousands of potentially harmful chemicals being used without proper testing and without disclosure from the companies that are producing them.  Some of those products might even be sitting amongst your cleaning supplies.  It’s a scary thought.

The good news is you can do something about it.  I have teamed up with Seventh Generation to help spread awareness about the importance of chemical reform in the United States and you can too by becoming a Toxin Freedom Fighter.  Simply sign the Seventh Generation’s petition to urge Congress to reevaluate the Toxic Substances Control Act for the first time since 1976 by clicking the button below and then share this information with your friends and family.  If we all work together I have no doubt we can help Seventh Generation reach its goal of collecting 100,000 Signatures by April 24th 2014.

To learn even more about chemical reform I encourage you to attend the #FightToxins Twitter Party on Thursday, April 10th from 1:00 to 2:00PM EST to chat about tips and tricks for living a healthy, green lifestyle as well as the importance of using products with as few chemicals as possible.

    Wow how scary. I didn’t realize how harmful my cleaning products could be. I signed the petition. Thanks for sharing this.

    This is scary to even think about and its one of those things I wish I didn’t know about. On a positive note I guess there are cleaners out there that aren’t harmful. I look forward to checking out the tips on April 10th!

    Thanks for sharing this important initiative! I hate to say that I was completely unaware of all the toxins around us until I had my daughter and started paying attention to all the “little things.” We should haven’t to search so hard to find products that are healthy for our families!

    I didn’t realize how much was in so many products. I received the Seventh Generation House Party and got to really dig into it deeper. Kinda scary really.
