Simple Way to Do Our Part

November 8, 2008

images2If every household in the US replaced just ONE bottle of 50 ounce 2X concentrate petroleum-based laundry liquid with a 50 ounce 2X concentrate plant-derived product we could save 233,000 barrels of oil which is enough to heat and cool 13,400 US homes for a year.  Let’s do that. Can you imagine if we all just switched? There are many non-petroleum cleaning products available now, even in the supermarket! Seventh Generation’s tree-saver and petroleum-saver ticker is one way we can see the difference we make by choosing environmentally conscious products. Reading labels is the first step to taking charge of the quality of our internal and external environment and we can make powerful choices about the products we bring into our homes. Do you know what “use with adequate ventilation” really means? Seventh Generation has a label reading guide for every cleaning product in the supermarket aisle. “In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.” From the Great Law of the Iroquois Confederacy.
