dishwasher pods“At our house, we use several Seventh Generation products, particularly the Dishwasher Detergent Packs. These pods aren’t messy to put in the dishwasher, and they clean without chlorine, phosphates, or synthetic fragrances.
—Rob Hanson, Membership Marketing Manager 

Dr. Bronner’s  Sal Suds Biodegradable Cleaner is my favorite product for everything from washing the floors to washing my dishes. It’s gentle on the skin, is biodegradable, and just gets things nice and clean.”  
—Dana Christianson, Membership Marketing Director 

Bottle of feed n wax

“For my secondhand antique furniture, I am in love with Howard products. The Feed-n-Wax Wood Polisher and Conditioner protects the wood but also ‘feeds’ it with essential oils to keep it strong. They also have a butcher block oil that is wonderful.” 
—Christy Schwengel, Major Gifts Officer 

“The Truce Pet Odor Remover Spray works like Febreze to get rid of the stink of dogs, but it doesn’t take a chemist to understand the ingredients. (Don’t use this if you have cats; they don’t like essential oils.)”
—Rachel Feldman, Business Partnerships Manager

“I use BioKleen’s Bac-Out for both stains on my clothes and when my cat gets sick on the carpet. It really works for smell and stain.”  
—Beth Porter, Better Paper Project Director

bottle of 7th generation spray

“The Seventh Generation Free and Clear Natural Laundry Stain Remover is a friend to anyone who is clumsy. I’ve used it for lipstick stains and coffee spills. Once I use this, I never see the stains again.” 
—Caroline Chen, Social Justice Programs Manager

“My stove has a ceramic top, and I’m constantly spilling or splattering things on it. EarthStone’s KitchenStone helps me get it clean without chemicals and without spending days scrubbing!” 
—Tracy Fernandez Rysavy, Editor-in-Chief

Molly’s Suds Liquid Laundry Detergent doesn’t have any dyes or fragrances, which Ibag of detergent prefer as someone sensitive to scents. It’s really concentrated, so you can use less to get your clothes clean. And because it’s in a bag with a spout instead of a heavy plastic jug, it has a smaller eco-footprint.”
—Kathy Harget, Development Director
