Seventh Generation Free & Clear Diapers {Review & Giveaway}

Seventh Generation{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Amy V!}

When it comes to having a baby, there's no way to get around diapers.

Whether you choose to use cloth, disposable or a combination of the two, at some point all moms will use disposable diapers on their baby. Whereas cloth diapers have transformed and improved over the years, disposable diapers have mostly stayed the same. They're still fast and easy to use, but the statistics on their impact on the environment haven't really changed, not to mention the chemicals that are in them that rest against a baby's sensitive skin.

We all want to do what's best for our children and our world, so fortunately there are companies that allow us to make choices that can benefit them both. And, when it comes to diapers, that's what Seventh Generation does with their Free & Clear Diapers.

Seventh Generation diapers reviewNewly relaunched, Seventh Generation Free & Clear diapers have the same great performance that parents demand from diapers but without all of the unnecessary extras. By not including chlorine processing, fragrances, latex and petroleum-based lotions, you can rest assured that your little one's delicate skin will always be protected.

When it comes to the earth, Seventh Generation has that protected as well. In an effort to contribute less overall landfill waste and continue to ensure a premium standard of absorbency, the new Free & Clear diapers have been redesigned with a lighter-weight core.

Plus, by using processed chlorine-free wood pulp in their Free & Clear Seventh Generationdiapers, Seventh Generation also makes certain that no chlorine is released into the environment during the totally chlorine-free (TCF) whitening process of the diapers and training pants.

If that all wasn't enough, Seventh Generation has also reduced the size of the diapers' plastic packaging, meaning that each pack now contributes even less overall landfill waste than before. In fact, Seventh Generation Free & Clear diaper packaging can now be recycled at local supermarkets where plastic bag recycling collection boxes are available. How cool is that?

As we began trying out these eco-friendly diapers, I immediately felt as though they were high quality, well-made and durable enough to stop leaks.

eco-friendly diapersAfter thoroughly testing these diapers out, Seventh Generation Free & Clear passed inspection perfectly. They proved to be extremely absorbent and the fit was just right to allow Little Sister B to be as active as she is without ever having even the tiniest of leaks.

diaper reviewOverall, I was very happy with these diapers not only on their performance but on how they treated Little Sister B's skin. It felt as baby-soft as ever! I love the idea that something so good for my daughter's well-being can also be so eco-friendly and beneficial for the earth. Seventh Generation really has thought through all of the aspects of these great diapers!

Retailing for $12.99 a package, Free & Clear diapers are available from newborn up to size 6. And, thanks to the generosity of Seventh Generation, one person will be able to try these great diapers as well, because...

One lucky person will win a package of Seventh Generation

These look wonderful--all the convenience of disposable diapers, but oh so much less environmental impact than traditional diapers.

My baby has SUPER sensitive skin...he just can't use any of the mainstream brands. Chlorine free diapers are the ONLY way to go for him! Now that I've seen how the chemicals in the other brands react to his skin, any future children I have will use chlorine-free or cloth ONLY!
