At Lavera, we know that it’s important to not only eliminate putting toxins on your skin, but also to avoid them in your food and in your home! That’s why we’ve decided to partner with Seventh Generation for the "Under the Sink Makeover Contest".

Did you know that the average home contains 63 hazardous chemical products, with the majority of them within arm’s reach under the sink? Reveal your best friend’s dirtiest secrets – those hiding under the kitchen sink, that is—and she’ll not only have a healthier home, but you can both win some great products! With the area under the kitchen sink as a family’s typical dumping ground for chemical products, Seventh Generation wants families nationwide to know about – and detox – this potentially hazardous area.

Nominate your friend for the "Under the Sink Makeover Contest" beginning July 22 through August 14 at, for under the kitchen sink areas that are in desperate need of organization and detoxification. Submit a 250-word description (a photo of the area under your friend’s sink would be helpful, although not required) on why they deserve an under the sink makeover (e.g., she’s concerned for the health of her family and the environment, the area under her sink a toxic wasteland, she’s overwhelmed by the chaos of motherhood and wants to change but doesn’t know where to begin, etc.).

One lucky grand prize winner will receive a package that includes:

  • An in-home consultation at the friend’s house with Dr. Alan Greene
  • A one year supply of Seventh Generation products for both the entrant and the friend in need
  • A trip to New York City for the entrant and her friend that includes a one-night stay at the W New York – Times Square hotel
  • A day of pampering at New York’s Green Spa that will include a Body Polish, Wellness Massage, Ocean Vegan Spa Manicure/Pedicure along with a one hour make-up application and lesson

Four other finalists and their friends will receive a Seventh Generation Living Home Starter Kit containing a variety of home-cleaning products for their own under the kitchen sink makeover, in addition to our very own luxurious Lavera home spa kit containing our customer favorite BODY SPA Vanilla-Coconut Shower Gel, Jojoba Body Scrub and 2 bath salts (Orange Sea Buckthorn, Milk & Honey), and our premium LAVERÉ Anti-Aging Body Control body lotion to pamper themselves.

I am one of four judges who will be choosing the winners—get your entries in by August 14! Submissions will be judged on the photo, creativity, originality and impression.

Thanks for reading, and help us celebrate a healthy, all-natural lifestyle for self and home by submitting someone you care about for the "Under the Sink Makeover Contest".
