Seventh Generation Giveaway!

seventh generation cleaning products

I love making my own cleaning products but there are a couple of things I haven’t been able to crack yet (hello washing up liquid).  Then there are a couple of things I like to keep under the sink (like laundry detergent) for when I run out of a particular cleaning product and don’t have the raw ingredients to hand to immediately whip up a new batch.  For these I keep eco-friendlier brands in supply.

Needless to say I was quite excited to hear that selected products from Seventh Generation, the popular US eco friendly cleaning product brand, are now being sold in the UK at larger Tesco stores nationwide, as well as online.

Seventh Generation, with a near 30 year history, pride themselves on their effective plant based cleaning products, and transparent labeling, so you know exactly what’s in each bottle.  What you won’t find are any nasties – such as dyes or artificial brighteners in their laundry detergents – just honest ingredients that work.

To celebrate this launch I’ve teamed up with Seventh Generation to give away a Seventh Generation hamper to one lucky Moral Fibres reader.  This person will win all the products pictured above – the washing up liquid, toilet cleaner, all purpose spray, window and glass cleaner, 4x concentrated laundry liquid and laundry liquid – to try out for themselves.

I’ve been giving their products a go and have to say I’m mightily impressed.  With packaging made from biodegradable or 100% recycled materials, and ingredients suitable for those with the most sensitive of skins it’s not hard to see why Seventh Generation have been so popular in the US.  I’ve especially enjoyed the laundry detergent and washing up liquid – these are scent free but tough on dirt and grease.  I’m sure whoever wins this lovely hamper will love it!

To enter take part via the Rafflecopter widget below.  Please note the giveaway is only open to UK residents:

Ten Things

pretty red flower - perfect patio plant

Hello hello!  Good week?  I’ve had a quiet one, slowly and surely working away.  It’s a busy time cycling wise (my day job) and a busy time blog wise (my evening job) but I am not complaining about any of these things – just looking forward to some time off later on in the summer!  I am looking forward to voting on Thursday (although as always I’m nervous about the outcome.  Just me?).  If you’re not planning on voting then please watch this 15 second video if you need any more convincing that your vote really does count.

On to the links:

1.  Trump pulling out of the Paris Agreement on climate change is a human rights catastrophe, say Amnesty International USA.

2.  On a more positive note, it appears more and more consumers are shunning unethical brands.

3.  I’m taking part in this bee count with my eldest daughter – seeing how many bees we can spot on the way to school and back each day.

4.  How ethical is H&M?

5.  Interesting – which fabrics are most sustainable?

6. This image broke my heart.

7.  I blimmin’ well love Sugru.  This genius (and so easy) no drill garden trellis* is something I want to do for the front of my house.  I’m thinking with a nice climbing hydrangea or something similar.

8.  This New York Times article on packaging food with food to reduce waste gives enormous hope for reducing our reliance on plastic.

9.  Stop right there.  There are such a thing as vegan chip shops (who knew?) and there’s one in Edinburgh!  Guess where I’m heading to very soon?!

10.  I’ve never been the biggest poetry person but I adore this instagram account.  This poem about friendship is one of my favourites.

And from the Moral Fibres archives:

Homemade weedkiller (this stuff really works!)

It’s strawberry season!  Strawberry and basil scones anyone?

Homemade nappy cream for any new parents (or as a gift to a new parent?).

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  And I just wanted to say thanks so much for reading along!  I’ve been really enjoying putting these round-ups together lately and I’m glad they are well received by you!
