Help Seventh Generation with the Toxic Substances Control Act #FightToxins


Disclosure: This a sponsored post, all ideas are my own and I support this cause

toxic 

As a Mother of 7 I have increasingly become more aware of everything that effects me an my children. I personally went though these phases.

  • I’m young, a new mother, out of the house and enjoyed convenience… a certain freedom of I can do and get what I want. I bought prepackaged food like Poptarts, and chewy bars thinking ” I am giving my kids a fun treat”
  • Then a few years ago, there was a lot of media coverage with chemicals on and in food, foreign objects in fast food, treated meat, lead on outlet wires, even chemicals on our coffee lids that leaks when they got hot. I kinda went extreme…. no fast food, no imported food, farmers markets, only organic everything…. I even bought and raised  my own chickens.
  • Now in present time, I am smarter, I have found a good balance, I look at labels, I still try to eat local and organic as much as possible but I am not going to let it scare me…. I’m going to do something about it!!!!

We should not have to run and hide or worry about what are children are touching and putting in their mouth. We as a united front need to demand that our world is a safe place for all. Did you know that things we would never imagine have untested chemicals in them…… untested!!!!!! Things like cups, our bed sheets, carpet, clothing, laundry soap. We have no idea of the effects these un-natural chemicals may have. I think many forget that our skin is our largest organ and that everything our skin comes in contact with can have a reaction.

We all wonder why there is such an increase in Cancer, birth defects, Alzheimer’s, learning disabilities, asthma, and various reproductive problems, it is proven that chemical toxins from everything around us have a huge part to play.

“85,000 synthetic chemicals introduced into the market since the Toxic Substances Control Act was passed in 1976,the EPA has required testing on less than 10%”

One way you can start TODAY to clear toxins from your own home is to use Seventh Generation products. They vow to ONLY use all natural ingredients and material for the air, surfaces, fabrics, pets and people within your home, this includes household and cleaning products, like dish soap, laundry detergent, diapers, wipes and even toilet paper.  

toxic2toxic3

I am encouraging you to help today by signing and sharing this fighttoxins.com  petition. If we take the right steps, our children will all live a cleaner, and toxin-free life. Seventh Generation is working hard for us on a reform on TSCA which would have all of these chemicals studied and evaluated ,and taking these concerns to congress…. if we get 100,000 signatures before April 30th 2014. The signatures will strengthen the movement behind chemical reform, and will encourage decision-makers to change the necessary laws.

Please Join in this movement!!!! fighttoxins.com 

 


Night-time at our House with GoodNites® #GNLightsOut and AD

GoodNites® Bed Mats have allowed me to change my nightly routine to hopefully help tweak my situation. I had started a very bad habit by letting my children go to be at night with a glass of water. They didn’t feel their night time routine was complete without it…. big mistake right. Now, most of my children were able to handle that just fine by either sleeping through the night or waking up and going to the restroom with no problem or assistance. One of my children however has struggled a bit. One way that I had tried to combat this was to wake them up in the middle of the night before I turned in for good. They were such a deep, deep, sleeper that I can see why it would be hard for them to wake themselves up to use the restroom, however I worried and wondered if I was hindering the situation by “training” their body to go at that time of the night, whether I was there to help or not. As parents we want to do the right thing all the time but it is all trial and error…. no child is going to be the same and what worked for one may not work for the other at all.

With the NEW GoodNites® Bed Mats I am taking a new personal approach, I have tried to do the classic cutting down on night time drinks without it being obvious, and I am using the new  GoodNites® Bed Mats and letting nature take it’s course. I have decided to not to wake my child up in the middle of the night and see how it goes. So far we are in week 1 and I have used 2 Bed Mats. The Mats adhered to the sheet with ease, after day 5 there was no peeling, bunching or tearing and when there was an accident it was easily removed without making a big deal about the situation, keeping their confidence up.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of GoodNites®.goodnights

I am very excited to be working with GoodNites® and help bring awareness of their new disposable, adhesive Bed Mats. They are the newest break through for older children who suffer from occasional urine accidents at night, these mats help provide ultra soft comfort, that stays in place all night and are super absorbent right when you need it.  GoodNites® Bed Mats also provide confidence,….confidence that you will not be having to get up in the middle of the night to change and wash a full bed set. Your child will have confidence in themselves, knowing that if an accident should accrue, that it will be very discreet and easy to clean up allowing them to get back to sleep as quickly as possible. 

bed mat

The Bed Mats are so easy to use, your child can even handle there accident on their own in a clean, easy way. I have had my children “try” and take care of the situation on their own by hiding the soiled clothes or sheets to cut down on the embarrassment.
With the GoodNites® Bed Mats all you need to do is:

  • Place the mat on top of fitted sheet
  • Peel the adhesive strips off the corners and smooth down
  • Protect the bed with the ultra-absorbent bed mat

And when they have been soiled, simply peel and toss in the trash…. no mess…. no odor!

 

Coming up this week:

GoodNites®  has some amazing promotions going on starting with a fun Twitter party on Thursday April 10, 2014 at 10:30am PST. During this party you will be able to share and learn some new ideas on helping your child feel more comfortable and confident when it comes to night time accidents. Plus there will be some fun prizes.
I know that this may be an uncomfortable topic for some but I encourage you to join….. even if it is to just sit back and read, you may realize you are not alone in this touchy and sometimes frustrating subject.
