Have A Healthy Baby & Home With Seventh Generation & Healthy Baby Twitter Party #HealthyBaby

This post was written for Seventh Generation in conjunction with The Motherhood. I received compensation, though all opinions written are my own. 

We are huge Seventh Generation fans in our house and we were so excited to be a part of their virtual baby shower! We chatted virtually with Seventh Generation, Healthy Baby Healthy Home, Stonyfield Yogurt and The Motherhood, so you can imagine how much important and eye-opening information we received. As a mom who only wants the best for my children, I try to use only organic and non-toxic products. My worst fear is that the kids will get into our cleaning cabinet and come across something that could really make them sick. This is why we love Seventh Generation products so much and have used them for years and years.
Seventh Generation Baby Products
Did you know that there are more than 80,000 chemicals registered in the U.S., but safety testing is NOT required by federal law. To me, that is just plain scary. Why take a chance with your own children? When I lived in Germany, I was so impressed with their eco-conscious lifestyles and, right along with that mindset, they have banned an amazing amount of chemicals (1,328), whereas the U.S. has only banned/restricted 11 chemicals

In addition to these scary details, scientific evidence continues to point to chemicals being contributing factors to the rise of childhood behavioral disorders and disease. Liam, my three year-old, has brain tumors and, believe me when I say, that I wonder what factors could have caused his Neurofibromatosis since it was not passed down from our family. Since his diagnosis, I've become much more adamant about checking labels and finding products that are non-toxic.

I find it so frightening that our government has not updated the primary U.S. law that regulates chemicals in everyday products in over 35 years! So much has changed in our lifetimes and we've found that many chemicals and products used when we were children are not at all safe. This is why we wholeheartedly support Seventh Generation in urging their consumers to contact senators to pass the Chemical Safety Improvement Act (CSIA). You can find and message your own senator easily by clicking here.

Take a look at this truly eye-opening video from Healthy Child. The information is not only important, but will help you see just how important these issues are and why the CSIA needs to be passed.
