Million Baby Crawl to Washington


Ha ha haa.... no we're not planning a family trip to DC anytime soon:) But maybe through a virtual crawler, we'll make it!

Seventh Generation has partnered with a national coalition to push new legislation for a chemical reform of cleaning products. Fearing that many harmful toxins are coming into our homes through some of the cleaning supplies that are readily available, Seventh Generation desires that the policy is updated to include new known chemicals. To view the platform of this campaign, click here.

As moms we can appreciate having a safe and clean environment in our homes. We thank companies, like Seventh Generation, that are trying to make products that help us accomplish BOTH of those goals!

You can be a part of the the campaign to change the chemical policy and show that there is interest in the Kid-Safe Chemical Act by joining the Million Baby Crawl!!

WIN IT!! Seventh Generation is giving SIMPLE readers extra motivation to join the virtual march! Here are three ways you can win a Seventh Generation starter kit to begin now to clean your home with less harmful chemicals.
  1. Join the Million Baby Crawl.... create a crawler and leave a comment that you did.
  2. Visit the Million Baby Crawl website and leave a comment about something you learned.
  3. Blog about this giveaway, linking to SIMPLE and Million Baby Crawl, leaving the URL in the comment!

Winner will be chosen at random on Nov 7th !!

  3. At the site, I learned some very sobering facts, the most disturbing of which is that a very tiny percentage of chemicals (that we expose our familes to every day in everyday products) are tested. That's why Seventh Generation is behind this Chemical Reform, which is so needed.
