Back To School With Seventh Generation Giveaway

by admin

It’s that time of year again when many families are heading back to school and others just started. When the kids head back to school, you need to prepare for more than just PTA forms coming home with the kids. Germs and lots of them will be coming from from school too. But, you can be prepared to fight off common viruses and germs with Seventh Generation natural disinfecting products.

seventh_generation_logo-215x300-8307531This school year, Seventh Generation is sharing tips from best-selling author and pediatrician, Dr. Alan Greene, to help parents protect their child’s health during back-to-school season. Dr. Greene suggests taking the following precautions:

Optimize the immune system

  • Reap the benefits of probiotics like those found in yogurt. A recent study showed that children who received enough probiotics daily throughout the cold and flu season 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.

Be wise about reducing unnecessary exposure to harmful germs

  • 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.

A few months ago I had the opportunity to review the Seventh Generation cleaning supplies and disinfecting products. I still enjoy using the Seventh Generation products and I am glad I was able to receive a back-to-school pack! My pack included a Seventh Generation backpack, two canisters of Seventh Generation disinfecting wipes (one for home and one for the classroom), disinfecting multi-surface spray cleaner, facial tissue and paper towels. My daughters teach was excited to get the disinfecting wipes, as she had never tried any  Seventh Generation products.
