Seventh Generation – Keep Sick Days To A Minimum – Prize Pack Review & Giveaway!

Germs. When you have kids they are everywhere. Why would you use harsh chemicals to clean up or disguise whats there? Seventh Generation has ways to keep your family germ free and chemical free!

The Seventh Generation 100% Recycled Paper Towels were my favorite! Not only do I like the off brown color from not being bleached. They are just as effective as any other paper towel but these are 100% recycled paper, are hypo-allergenic, and have no added dyes or chemicals!

The Seventh Generation Disinfecting Wipes are soft to the touch and even have a soapy like wet when it cleans. What I really like is that they don’t leave a streaky look when it dries. I’ve been using these on my kitchen table after my preschooler eats lunch everyday and they work great. They get rid of the ketchup fingerprints and leave my table nice and clean. Unlike the harsh chemical cleaner I was using before which stripped the paint from the table every time I used it. These wipes kill 99.99% of germs botanically and even kills the Influenza A virus!
So as you head back to school remember these simple tips.
This school year, Seventh Generation is sharing tips from best-selling author and pediatrician, Dr. Alan Greene, to help parents protect their child´s health during back-to-school season. Dr. Greene suggests taking the following precautions:

Optimize the immune system

  • Reap the benefits of probiotics like those found in yogurt. A recent study showed that children who received enough probiotics daily throughout the cold and flu season had a significant reduction in the number of illnesses they had and, when they did get sick, the symptoms were both milder and didn’t last as long.
  • Be sure your child is getting plenty of vitamin D from the sun, from food, or from a supplement.
  • Build a strong foundation. Good food, good sleep, and good physical activity all help the immune system to flourish.

Be wise about reducing unnecessary exposure to harmful germs

  • Teach children the key times to clean their hands in the classroom. The most important times include after sneezing, coughing or using the restroom, upon leaving “high-risk” places (recess, naptime, play stations) and before meals or snacks.
  • Sixty percent of teachers surveyed said that they request that parents donate disinfecting wipes to the classroom. Seventh Generation´s disinfecting wipes kill 99.99% of germs* naturally using the active ingredient thyme, a component of thyme oil which is derived from the herb thyme.
  • Stress the importance of not touching their eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Demonstrate to your children how to cover their mouth and nose for every cough and sneeze. This simple maneuver has spectacular results in decreasing the spread of viruses and bacteria floating about the room, waiting to be inhaled.
