Seventh Generation makes products that are a healthy alternative to the cleaning and household products that come from companies that aren’t interested in sustainability or the environment. Their Free and Clear line includes products that are free of fragrances, latex, and petroleum based lotions. This is great for people who have a latex allergy, or who have pollen allergies that can be triggered by floral fragrances. Chlorine can cause skin, nose, and throat irritation, and many people feel that it is healthy to avoid anything that includes chlorine. Using recycled materials is good for the environment.
