Dr Seuss was green long before it was in vogue. His tale of The Lorax has been teaching children to “speak for the trees” since 1971. Now more than 40 years after publication, The Lorax has a new voice – a theatrical voice to proclaim his protection over all living things.
In our home, we make efforts every day to live more green and protect our precious resources. We recycle nearly every piece of garbage that leaves our house and we do our best to buy green products. Buying and reselling gently used clothing and toys is another way we live green without impacting our comercialized lives. From the time my daughter was old enough to be instructed to throw something in the trash can, she knew the difference between the recycling bin and the trash. She’s even been known to correct adults about items she correctly recognizes as recyclable.
While I haven’t yet taken my daughter yet to see The Lorax, it is on our list. I can’t wait to enjoy The Lorax in 3D retelling the urgent moral of protecting our resources in a way only Dr. Seuss can.
Seventh Generation is one brand that has taken the green movement by storm producinng products that are made naturally and are free from harsh chemicals. We are very familiar with the use of Seventh Generation cleaning products in our home, but not so familiar with the baby care items. Seventh Generation Free & Clear baby care products do not contain chlorine, fragrance, petroleum-based lotions or latex, and are hypo-allergenic.
I was sent a package of Seventh Generation diapers to test, and I was immediately surprised upon opening the package that the diapers have a brown tint and are not white like I am used to. Of course, I quickly realized that it is the lack of a chlorine bleach that normally produces that white diaper, but it was still surprising. But once I got over the color, they were quite nice. And, of course, I like knowing I am doing something good for the planet.
Seventh Generation offers three types of diaper/training pants:
- NEW Overnight Diapers are absorbent enough to keep your baby and bedding dry through the night or during prolonged travel
- Free & Clear diapers have improved more flexible tabs that provide even better fit
- Free & Clear training pants have an absorbent core made with more renewable, plant-based materials. They also feature stretchy, tear away side panels for a better fit and added convenience, as well as inner leak barriers for superior leakage protection
