"The Blue Eucalyptus & Lavender Laundry Liquid is my all-time FAVORITE product! The key is that I'm not sacrificing performace in this product. I've tried other products that are free of harmful chemicals, but don't quite do the job that I expect them to do. This is NOT the case with this product. My laundry smells GREAT. My clothes are clean and fresh. And I can sleep soundly at night knowing that I'm not pumping a ton of chemicals into our water supply every time I do a load of laundry."

Jeffrey Hollender has led Seventh Generation from its humble beginnings to its current position as the leading and fastest-growing brand of natural products for the home, and the leading authority on issues related to making a positive difference in the health of the planet.
Creating a healthier home environment hit close to home for the Hollenders when son Alex was hospitalized for an asthma attack about 6 years ago. "I was so scared I took a plane to get to the hospital as quickly as possible," recalls Jeffrey. "A leading asthma specialist confirmed the cause was 100% environmental and the cure included mattress covers to confine dust mites, no carpeting, and non-toxic cleaners!"
