Going Green! #livelikethelorax


Okay is anyone else excited about The Lorax?! I loved the book and cannot wait to see the movie with my little guy. I’ve been seeing The Lorax popping up all over in stores and Pinterest. I recently got to review this new laundry detergent from Seventh Generation featuring The Lorax and fell in love with the packaging.

What is the Lorax and what is the connection with Seventh Generation?

  • The Lorax is the classic environmental kids book written by Dr. Seuss over 40 years ago. While the book may be old, the message is not. The story is about the destruction of the Truffula Trees. The Lorax gets frustrated that all the trees have been chopped down to make the Thneeds (which no one really needs). As he leaves his home, his final message: “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” This is exactly what Seventh Generation stands for.

Here’s some fun facts about the new Natural 4x Laundry Detergent:

Formula: The most technologically-advanced formula yet uses a multiple enzyme system to fight the toughest stains as effectively as conventional brands, without synthetic cleaning ingredients.

Packaging: This powerful 4X formula is packaged in an innovative recyclable (even compostable) bottle, made from 100% recycled fiber.

Value: The powerful, four-times-concentrated formula cleans 66 loads of laundry from a single 50-ounce bottle.

Availability: In Target, Spouts and other fine retailers nationwide.

I have to say I loved this laundry detergent. It worked great and I love the packaging! The clean and clear didn’t really have any fragrance, but it was actually nice since my allergies are so bad right now. :) Here’s to going green!

So have you seen The Lorax? While we’re on the subject… how cute are these cake pops?!

Seventh Generation and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax have joined forces to inspire families to conserve the earth’s resources with conscious consumption. If every U.S. household replaced just one bottle of 50 oz. 4X concentrate petroleum-based laundry liquid with Seventh Generation’s 50 oz. 4X concentrate plant-derived product, we could save enough oil to heat and cool 15,700 U.S. homes for a year. Make a difference by choosing high-quality and effective products from Seventh Generation, now offering free shipping for any purchase over $50!As the Lorax says,“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
