Awesome! Sometimes I wish there were a self-serve refillable option too, which would save a lot of energy. You can do this at Whole Foods with Nature's Gate products. It would be nice to see more brands doing this- and more people actually using this option for an even cleaner, greener world.

The only problem I have is that they don't do it in Ohio

This is great but aren't they using a lot of gas/resources to transport plastic from Vermont to North Carolina and Alabama for the processing? Only to probably ship it back to Vermont to make it into the actual bottles. They should look into other facilities or consider constructing their own if they are serious about reducing their carbon footprint.

This is one of the main reasons why I love 7th Generation products. This is one of the few company's that actually care about Mother Earth. It takes a big person (or company in this case) to do the right thing. 7th generation is able to make good, quality products without compromising the earth. Thank you 7th Generation for making this a better place to live while we enjoy good product. Keep doing a good job. We support your efforts and we will continue to do our part as well.

I had no idea that a milk jug or less could be recycled into a completely new container. Thanks for the information!

This is one of the reasons why we purchase 7th generation products. We typically do not purchase plastic bottles. We buy Organic Valley and recycle those paper ones. We also buy milk in glass bottles at our local co-op.
