Review & Giveaway: Seventh Generation Free & Clear Diapers #myblogspark @SeventhGen

MyBlogSpark and Seventh Generation have provided me with an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek at the newly re-launched Seventh Generation Free & Clear diapers. I am so excited to tell you all about them AND to be able to GIVEAWAY a package of diapers to one lucky Beckee's Deals reader!

First, What is it?

As I mentioned I was able to get a sneak peek at the newly re-launched Seventh Generation Free & Clear diapers. As they told me, "What Seventh Generation leaves out is just as important as what they put in." Let me tell you what makes these diapers different and unique:

  • Free & Clear diapers do not include chlorine processing, fragrances, latex and petroleum based lotions.  
  • 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.
  • With processed chlorine-free wood pulp in Free & Clear diapers, 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.
  • 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.
  • Seventh Generation Free & Clear diaper packaging can now be recycled at local supermarkets where plastic bag recycling collection boxes are available.
What did we think?

As you can see, we had baby Everest try them out (here he is trying to crawl in them):

What did we think? To be perfectly honest, I am pretty particular when it comes to diapers and quite loyal to a certain brand. Though I do care about the environment, when I am searching for diapers, I care about other things first. Will it give my child a rash (he has sensitive skin)? Will it leak out? Or is is going to be absorbent enough? Will it fit him well and feel comfortable?

As Everest is only 3 months old I am not sure what he would say about the comfort level, but he seemed pleased wearing it see:

And I thought it did well holding in the explosive poops and the large amount of pee he dispensed into the diaper. For me the facts that it held in the explosion and seemed to be comfortable and did NOT give him a rash were the most important factors for me, and I really liked it.

I have not tried these diapers, but I would love to win a package to try. I recently went on a field trip with my son's 3rd grade class to a landfill and while there I learned that it takes 500+ years for disposable diapers to decompose. My son thought that was pretty gross that diapers from today will still be in the landfill in 500 years! I think it's great they are trying to create a more eco-friendly disposable diaper. Thanks.
