Seventh Generation Isn’t as Clean as You Think


Making your home a more non-toxic environment is vital to your health and beauty. Minimizing toxins is a good idea if you want to avoid serious illnesses, like cancer, and even if you wish to avoid minor viruses, like the common cold. When your body isn’t being bombarded with poisons, while being fortified with health foods and supplements, your immune system stands to be strengthened, and a strengthened immune system means less sick days.

That being said, your body’s largest organ is your skin, and it absorbs more than 65% of everything you put on it, and that includes the ingredients used in your laundry detergent. That detergent is in your clothes, sheets, and towels, all of which has more contact with your skin than anything else. So, if you still need to ditch your toxic detergent, here is what I have recently uncovered:

  1. Biokleen

  2. 365 Everyday Value

  4. Attitude

  5. Better Life

  6. Dapple

  7. Fit Organic

  8. Martha Stewart

  9. Sun & Earth

  10. Whole Foods

C/D/F Rated Laundry Detergents

  1. Ecos

  2. The Honest Company

  3. Mama Bear

Thou Art Shooketh

First of all, the fact that a company (like Whole Foods) can have an A-rated product right next to their C-rated product is proof that you can’t trust anybody in these non-toxic streets. What’s just as devastating is that all the detergents I’ve been using are C and D rated products! Ecos? The Honest Company? Seventh Generation?

What is going on!

I am shook! It’s time to make another shift, and if you need to check on your detergent’s rating, or the rating of any other home, bath and body, or beauty product, check the EWG website or app.
