 Detox your home this spring

Tips and recommendations for a cleaner, greener life from Seventh Generation and Maureen Dennis

TORONTO, ON­ – Many health-conscious Canadians detox the body with organic foods, juice cleanses, and clean eating, but fewer realize that it is equally important to detox the home. There are thousands of chemicals of concern found in many products in and around the home. This means that most people are exposed daily to harmful toxins that have suspected links to cancer, birth defects and asthma.

Seventh Generation, a leading North American brand of environmentally responsible household and personal care products, is announcing a new collaboration with parenting expert Maureen Dennis to encourage Canadians to detoxify the air, surfaces, and materials in their living spaces.

Babies are exposed to as many as 300 chemicals of concern before they are even born – that is a staggering stat,” said Maureen Dennis. “Education is the best way to empower ourselves to make small changes to our daily habits. Making smarter and safer choices can help drive major change for ourselves, our families, and the planet.”

A mom of four, Dennis knows a thing or two about finding effective and affordable ways to create a healthy and happy living environment. Working closely with Seventh Generation, she’s established a series of educational and easy tips to help detoxify the home by eliminating harmful toxins. The tips, which are also recommended by Environmental Defence (Canada’s most effective environmental action organization) can be used by the whole family to lead a cleaner, greener life.    

Furthering their commitment to building a toxin-free generation, Seventh Generation will donate $0.50 per unit sold of any Seventh Generation product to Environmental Defence from today (April 24) through May 31, up to a total of $10,000. The partnership is fitting, as Seventh Generation was created to inspire a revolution to nurture the health of the next seven generations, by providing busy families with plant based, value-driven cleaning and baby care products. Environmental Defence, the organization that successfully advocated the banning of BPA in baby bottles and phthalates in children’s toys, educates Canadians about cancer-causing and hormone-disrupting chemicals they are exposed to every day.

Chevrolet Safe & Sure Car Seat Installation Workshops – Spokesperson & Marketing

Safe-Sure_300x250-1

Toronto, ON (February 17, 2014) –Children are our most precious cargo, but when parents don’t know proper car seat safety procedures, they put their children’s lives at risk on the roads. That is why Chevrolet is launching the national Safe and Sure Child Car Seat Installation Workshop Program, offering families expert advice on installing car seats into any make or model of vehicle for free.

Families and caregivers can sign up for the free workshops at www.safeandsure.ca.  Sessions will begin at Chevrolet dealerships in Vancouver and Toronto in April 2014.  Dealerships in Montreal will begin offering the workshops in late spring 2014.  No matter what vehicle you drive, or the type of car seat you own, parents and caregivers can register online now for their free expert consultation.

“Safety has always been a priority for Chevrolet,” says Natalie Nankil, Public Relations Manager, Chevrolet. “Knowing that car seat safety has become such a concern, and that parents are looking for know-how and support, Chevrolet decided to help all drivers with the new Safe and Sure program.”

Chevrolet’s car seat installation workshops were piloted in Toronto during 2012 and 2013. The workshops received such overwhelmingly positive response from parents, grandparents, expectant parents and caregivers that Chevrolet is working with Parachute to now offer this program in three major cities.
