Hope you all are doing well today. Hope to see some of you out here At the Fence today to hear about the Seventh Generation Back to School Kit offered through Seventh Generation and My Blog Spark. They sent me this wonderful kit of full of things for fighting germs. The kit includes a lightweight nylon Seventh Generation Backpack, 2 canisters of Seventh Generation Disinfecting Wipes, 1 box of Seventh Generation Tissues, 1 bottle of Seventh Generation Multi-Surface Cleaner, and 1 roll of Seventh Generation Paper Towels.
Seventh Generation wants to help your child stay healthy and germ free:
"Optimize the immune system
- Reap the like those found in yogurt. A recent study showed that children who received enough probiotics daily throughout the cold and had a significant reduction in the number of illnesses they had and, when they did get sick, the symptoms were both milder and didn't last as long.
- Be sure your child is getting plenty of vitamin D from the sun, from food, or from a supplement.
- Build a strong foundation. Good food, good sleep, and good physical activity all help the immune system to flourish.
- Teach children the key times to clean their hands in the classroom. The most important times include after sneezing, coughing or using the restroom, upon leaving "high-risk" places (recess, naptime, play stations) and before meals or snacks.
- Sixty percent of teachers surveyed said that they request that parents donate disinfecting wipes to the classroom. Seventh Generation´s disinfecting wipes kill 99.99% of germs* naturally using the active ingredient thyme, a component of thyme oil which is derived from the herb thyme.
- Stress the importance of not touching their eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
- Demonstrate to your children how to cover their mouth and nose for every cough and sneeze. This simple maneuver has spectacular results in decreasing the spread of viruses and bacteria floating about the room, waiting to be inhaled.
These products are handy to have around. Encourage your child to use these products to cut down on their exposure to germs.
Another quote from Seventh Generation:
"At Seventh Generation, we know your home is your world. For the past 20 years, it’s been our mission to help you protect your world with our naturally safe and effective household products."
I have included a few pictures of my family using the Seventh Generation products around our house. My daughter wiping her hands after petting our dog, cleaning the counter with the Multi-Surface Cleaner with one of the paper towels, using the tissues, etc
