This week’s InstaPalette is a little bit different. You see, while pictures of happy children, lush gardens, and dreamy travel destinations are pretty amazing, what’s really wonderful is healthy children and environmental responsibility. That’s why I have selected the following image for this week’s #InstaPalette – and included a #HealthyBaby giveaway, too!

Seventh Generation #HealthyBaby

Companies like Seventh Generation and Stonyfield Organic are committed to providing consumers with products that are safe for every member of the family. Using all-natural ingredients in products keeps pesticides and other harsh chemicals from disrupting the body. Organizations like Healthy Child Healthy World help to spread awareness about the toxins in our environment, so that parents like you and me can make the best decisions.

Just think about it:

  • There are more than 80,000 chemicals registered for use in the United States — and safety testing is not required for these chemicals under any federal law.
  • The primary U.S. law that regulates chemicals for use in every day products has not been updated in more than 35 years.
  • 1 in 3 toys contains toxic chemicals, such as lead, cadmium, arsenic, and mercury – and PVC is still present in 42% of children’s products!
  • Growth hormones, GMOs, pesticides, oh my! Even our food supply is loaded with chemicals. Find out easy ways to help your family choose the healthiest options in this free ebook!

Find out more information from Healthy Child Healthy World’s website. Here you will find tips for how to eliminate toxins in your home, foods, toys, and other products. You may not be able to commit to following every step, but hey — Small steps add up!

Why should you care about chemicals?

Watch the Wake Up Story video. I will admit that the first time I watched this video, I cried. It was an ugly cry, but it was worth it. The second time I watched this video, I cried some more. And every time after that. It’s very eye-opening. I just didn’t think about all of the chemicals that we breathe, ingest, and absorb on a daily basis. When I consider the amount of chemicals that my child has circulating through her little body, it’s just devastating. Take a look at the video, and have your own wake up call. Armed with this information, you want to make changes — but even better, you DO make changes.

  1. I’m not sure it’s a “tip”, but we’ve started eating clean and organic – sure, we still have a few things in the pantry we’re eating through, but we feel really good when all the ingredients in our food are natural!

  2. Fantastic post! Not many people understand how prevelant toxic chemicals are, especially in our food. I applaud you taking up the cause.
