Every time Seventh Generation shows up here on dkM, we get a great response!  Anyone interested in chemical free living knows who they are and why choosing safe, effective household cleaners is important.  So when Seventh Generation emailed me about the Million Baby Crawl, I had to hop on board right away.  Here’s what they told me about their recent efforts to make our homes safer for our children:  

 Did you know that…

• In the 33 years since Congress passed that nation’s chemical regulatory law, the Toxic Substances Control Act (TCSA), the Environmental Protection Agency has required testing on just 200 of the more than 80,000 chemical compounds developed for products used in the home. 

• Under the current law, the EPA does not have the authority to demand the information it needs to evaluate a chemical’s risk, and neither manufacturers nor the EPA are required to prove a chemical’s safety as a condition of use. 

• 1.25 million kids younger than six are unintentionally poisoned in the home each year by things like cosmetics and personal care products, cleaning substances, pain relievers and cough and cold medicines (American Association of Poison Control Centers)

• Studies show that nearly 200 industrial chemicals and pollutants have been found in the umbilical cord blood of newborns (EWG).

That’s why Seventh Generation has begun the Million Baby Crawl – to help educate and empower parents about the need to raise our voices and be heard concerning our country’s grossly outdated chemical regulatory laws.

  1. I learned that they want a bill in congress that will
    Take quick action on the most dangerous chemicals.
    Require full information on the health and environmental hazards associated with all chemicals.
    Protect all people and vulnerable groups – including children and pregnant women – using the best science.

  2. BPA has been found to cause diabetes, obesity, and breast cancer. This is bad. There is so much plastic everywhere.

  3. I learned that if you have a well, you should also have periodic testing done for heavy metals, parasites, nitrates, radon and other hazardous chemicals to make sure that your water is safe to drink.

  4. replacing one box of petroleum based laundry detergent can help save 96K barrels of oil, enough to heat 5500 homes in the us for a year!

  5. I learned that Erin Brockovich made famous from the film made about her is a partner in supporting the cause the “Million Baby Crawl” is about.

  6. Pingback: Nancy Schools
  7. Since 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has required safety testing on only 200 of the more than 80,000 chemicals on the market.

  8. I learned widespread exposure to chemicals can cause serious and adverse impacts on human health, particularly for children

  9. I learned that they offer coupons online that can be printed twice during the period that the coupons are valid. Thanks!

  10. Companies manufacturing cleaning products are not required to tell you what chemicals they use in their products. Without ingredient transparency, it’s hard for people to make safe, well-informed decisions. Seventh Generation offers a label reading guide – helpful!

  11. I learned that you can add Eucalyptus essential oil to the water helps kill dust mites

  12. The average household washes about 50 pounds of laundry in 7.4 weekly loads and this cleans around 6,000 items yearly.

  13. We wash on average about 6,000 pieces of laundry ( i think i wash more than that) and 80,000 items only about 200 are tested. Thanks.
