Parents, Never Stop Fighting For Something Good
Are there things you want for your children? Like, really, really, want? I’m talking about values so important that you simply will not compromise on them. The world is full of dos & don’ts. Just the same, as time passes, these should and shouldn’t rules get more and more complicated. How about pausing for a moment? What about taking things back to the basics? Let’s just enforce the fact that parents should NEVER stop fighting for… well, something so seemingly uncomplicated, undeniably truthful as… something good.
During this post, we are going to discuss how Seventh Generation is asking the makers of commercial cleaning products to #comeClean. Furthermore, we are going to explain how they want to help parents fight for “something good”, for seven generations to come.
I was selected for this opportunity as a member of #GenerationGood. The content and opinions expressed here are my own; however, I did receive items for free in exchange for my thoughts.
What does something good mean?
Something good, in regards to children, is something that preserves the contentment of the world they live in. I understand reality. It’s not my job to have bubble children. In fact, brush up on my post about teaching your child not to fear. However, if there is an action that is intently, yet unnecessarily, done to downgrade their environment, as a parent, I’m going to change that. It all starts by understanding the situation a little better.
I was already an avid lover of Seventh Generation and wrote about their Natural Dish Liquid; so when I heard about their Come Clean campaign I signed up immediately. They sent me their welcome packet full of coupons. They also sent me a pamphlet that stated, “We never stop fighting for something good.” Whoa. Things just got a little too real. As a parent, it’s my mantra. Mama bear comes out strong for her child. As I viewed the rest of the insert, all these thoughts flashed through my mind. It really got me thinking and asking…
What does something good do?
It all started in 1988 when Seventh generation was founded. They started as distributors of a mail-order catalog that marketed resource-saving products. In 1990, they were the first North America home care company to bring branded 100% recycled fiber paper products to the market. Later, they changed their product line from catalogs and went solely to wholesale products.
Continuing on, in 2004 Seventh Generation began publishing reports about minimizing harm to the environment. 2006, Ceres-ACCA North America provides the company and award for sustainability reporting. Then in 2010 they partner with CleanWell to create disinfecting cleaners that kill household germs botanically instead of chemically. Theres an entire slew of actions that Seventh Generation has done, and will continue to do, for the sake of fighting for something good. And, as a parent, there are steps you can take as well.
Protect your next seven generations.
