what we’re loving : hand wash from Seventh Generation

Unruly Things for Seventh Generation

summer time with a 3 year old boy can only be described in one word - MESSY. ok two words - messy and FUN! Wolf spends every afternoon playing outside, whether he’s digging in his sand pit, watering anything and everything with the hose or his new latest favorite activity – plucking weeds out of the flower bed, resulting in dirty, dirty hands. thankfully he’s pretty good about coming inside and washing up.

we’ve been enjoying this brand new natural hand wash from Seventh Generation. it comes in three fresh scents, works great and leaves hands feeling soft. plus, its hypoallergenic, plant-based formula is made with no dyes or other icky stuff. so I feel better knowing that each hand washing is not only fun, but safe! keep an eye out for it in retail stores soon.

Guatemalan inspired textiles from Archive New York

Vintage Guatemalan Inspired Textiles + Pillows from Archive New York | Unruly Things

I just adore these pillows from Archive New York, created by textile designer Amira Marion. she recently launched two beautiful collections : a digital collection in which she prints replications of vintage fabric fragments on to silk and a woven collection in which she worked with non-profit Maya Traditions and local Guatemalan weavers to recreate some traditional woven textiles. swoon, right?! see both collections here.

seventh generation : au naturel

Unruly Things for Seventh Generation

when you think about the products that you’re putting on your little babe, you want nothing but the best, right? organic and natural but most importantly, toxin free. best put – au naturel.

even though Wolf is now potty trained and only wearing diapers at night, we choose to diaper him in Seventh Generation diapers because for one, they not only worked the best with his sensitive skin but we felt better knowing that they are free of fragrances, petroleum-based lotions, chlorine processing and bleach.

Seventh Generation put together an amazing little video called Au Naturel promoting their diapers and it’s way cute – check it out here.

as you know, I’ve partnered with Seventh Generation to help spread the word about their Toxic Freedom Fighter Campaign. the Toxin Freedom Fighters Campaign is collecting signatures, with a goal of reaching 100,000, and delivering them to Congress on April 30, 2014. and they’re ALMOST THERE! the signatures will strengthen the movement behind chemical reform and will encourage that decision-makers change the necessary laws.

thanks to those of you who have already signed and supported Seventh Generation’s fight for safer chemicals. if you haven’t signed the petition, have a look at the campaign here. there’s only about 3000 signatures left until they reach their goal.
