A New Life for Laundry Caps
From our ingredients to our packaging, Seventh Generation is always looking for new ways to reduce our environmental impact. We applaud Preserve's "Gimme 5" program, allowing customers to recycle #5 plastic where they shop.
Seventh Generation's Packaging Pete says, "The Gimme 5 program helps us close the loop on our #5 plastic, making it easy for our customers to recycle their laundry caps so in turn we can create more sustainable packaging for the products they love."
Polypropylene plastic, or #5, is the material of choice for bottle caps, spray bottle heads, and baby wipe tubs due to its versatility and flexibility. As well, it can be easily recycled and turned into new products.
Consumers can now recycle their #5 plastic in the "Gimme 5" recycling bins in Whole Foods Markets and other natural food stores across the country. Clean, used Seventh Generation bottle caps, spray bottle heads, and baby wipe tubs can be placed in the nearest bin. Preserve will turn these used packages into new #5 plastic, allowing us to create new post-consumer packaging. For more information on Preserve's "Gimme 5" program, visit: www.preserveproducts.com.
