Seventh Generation: Back to school review & giveaway!!

I love Seventh Generation products, and I think they do a superb job on cleaning... With kids back in school, it is a great time to promote the Seventh Generation products, once again. I am not a big fan of my son going to the school and picking up all those germs, then bringing them home to the younger kids on his hands, face, clothing, etc. I am a big fan of him washing his hands thoroughly when he gets home, to help minimize the germs that came home with him.
Taking an extra precaution, I am happy to be using the Seventh Generation products to keep my house clean, and for easy disinfecting of surfaces. I love that the Seventh Generation products are non-toxic, and no harsh fumes!
First of all, I love the Multi-Surface cleaner. I think this is a great kitchen cleaner, and is easy to use! I think it is great that Seventh Generation's products are Hypo-allergenic, too. My family has different allergies and sensitivities, and with using the Seventh Generation, I can see the difference in how our bodies don't negatively react to the cleaners. With the Seventh Generation Disinfecting wipes, I can easily wipe down the kid's toys, play surfaces, and ride-on toys. I think it is great that Seventh Generation made wipes for easy cleaning. I have also used the disinfecting wipes on door handles, faucets, and bathroom areas. The disinfecting wipes from Seventh Generation have a nice scent, and they are great controlling odors. I am amazed that the Disinfecting wipes will kill the Influenza A Virus, also killing 99% of household germs! It is so comforting to know that while I am wiping with the disinfecting wipe, I am getting rid of germs and the Influenza A virus!
With kids coming into the "cold season," I recommend the Seventh Generation tissues for their nose. Facial tissues, often times, will actually cause my allergies to flare up because of the dust and other things on them. I noticed that the Seventh Generation does not have that "dust" on their tissues, in fact, their tissues are Hypo-allergenic. The tissues are also whitened without chemicals containing chlorine, there are no added dyes or fragrances, which is a huge plus, especially if you are more into the natural ways. I give the tissues two thumbs up!
Seventh Generation has several products for cleaning, baby, laundry, household cleaners/paper and supplies, feminine care, dish washing and more. I have used several of the cleaning products, and I am planning on using the Seventh Generation products throughout my house. I think my next purchase will be the laundry products. :)
I believe in their products, they are safe to use, biodegradable, earth-friendly, no harsh chemicals and more.

I've been working with my 4 year old on hand washing. We now sing the Happy Birthday song while she washes and she's definitely doing a better job. Hopefully this will help cut down on the number of colds this season! Thanks for the giveaway!

I went to their website and I learned that their dishwasher powder doesn't have phosphates! I've been using it for a couple of years and it cleans my dishes REALLY well!

We're cutting down one the amount of pop and snacks we keep in the house. They also have to go walking every day.
