Being good to planet Earth through sustainable living is not only about keeping your environment healthy, but also your family. Parents are faced with a myriad of products that could do great damage to the health of their children – from the plastics that make their bottles and toys, the garden spray you use to keep bugs off your backyard swing-set, to disposable diapers.

In response, organizations worldwide are meeting parents halfway to combat the problems and risks that come with harsh chemicals and non-biodegradable products.

“It is now widely documented that the chemicals found in our surroundings – including our home environment – can find their way into our bodies and eventually be linked to a wide variety of health problems,” says Serena Chenoy, a spokesperson for Seventh Generation has launched an annual diaper donation program dedicated to offering chlorine-free diapers to women’s shelters. For every package of diapers sold in August 2010, Seventh Generation will donate one pack to a women’s shelter in Ontario or Quebec. It is 
anticipated that about 6000 packs of diapers will be donated through this initiative. 

Seventh Generation chlorine-free diapers are available at Walmart, Loblaws, and the majority of natural health product stores.  For more information, go to
