One of the easiest ways to green our purchasing choices is to buy products made by Seventh Generation. They make cleaning products, laundry detergent, trash bags, paper towels, napkins, tampons, and baby products. According to The Better World Shopping Guide, they are the best company on the planet in terms of both environmental and social responsibility.
Think about the sheer amount of waste generated by baby diapers, or tampons and pads. It’s so important to make sure that the products we choose are made of recycled materials, and that they are biodegradable (this means that eventually they will break down in a landfill or something, unlike plastic, which won’t).
So, a quick and easy way to make sure that the products you use are both eco-friendly and not paying lobbyists is to use Seventh Generation!
