Take Seventh Generation’s Cleanhouse Challenge, Plus Enter This Giveaway for Green Cleaning Products!

Seventh Generation, a pioneer of “green” household cleaning products, has paired up with Real Simple to launch its Cleanhouse Challenge app! This fun app provides tips and videos on keeping a healthy house the “green” way, plus provides the opportunity to win coupons, Facebook badges and prizes! Each room in the house contains easy suggestions on topics such as how to care for wood surfaces naturally, how to disinfect toys safely, how to improve indoor air quality, and how to remove stains from shower curtains. Check out one of their videos below:



[Email subscribers, please click on the title of this post to view the video online.]

And here’s something else really great about the Cleanhouse Challenge app: When users complete every room of the house, Seventh Generation donates ten dollars (up to a total of $15,000) to 350.org, an environmental organization. Hurry over to RealSimple.com, Seventhgeneration.com or the Seventh Generation Facebook page to take the Cleanhouse Challenge! Hurry, because it’s only available through October 31.

To celebrate the Cleanhouse Challenge app, I have the pleasure of offering a fantastic Seventh Generation giveaway! One lucky winner will receive ALL of the products below:

Seventh Generation’s three new specialty cleaners ~ Wood, Granite/Stone, and Stainless Steel. (We love the stainless steel cleaner for our refrigerator.) All of these products are USDA Certified Biobased Products made from non-toxic biodegradable formulas. They contain plant-based ingredients and organic coconut oil to deliver superior performance without strong fumes!

Seventh Generation’s Natural Dish Liquid, which is designed to be gentle on the hands with its Advanced HerbaVera Moisturizing Technology. This USDA Certified Biobased Product is fragranced with essential oils and botanical extracts. It’s non-toxic and biodegradable!

Seventh Generation’s Natural Laundry Detergent Packs. We’ve been using this product in our High-Efficiency Washer, and it works like a dream! I love the Mandarin & Sandalwood aroma. Just pop a pack in the dispenser, and you’re done! Like the products above, it’s USDA Certified Biobased. It contains no dyes, synthetic fragrances or optical brighteners, and can be used in hot or cold water.

I’ve been thrilled with every Seventh Generation product I have tried. They all work as well as or even better than traditional cleaning products, and I feel great knowing that they’re non-toxic and healthier for my family.

GIVEAWAY

One lucky winner will receive all 5 Seventh Generation products featured above: wood cleaner, granite/stone cleaner, stainless steel cleaner, natural dish liquid, and natural laundry detergent packs! To enter, simply fill out the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and will end at 11:59 PM on Tuesday, October 30, 2012.
