Watched the video (sorry, don't have time to read all the comments here, so I'm sorry if I'm repeating something). This video is SO awesome. There's nothing pretty about it, just pure information. GOOD-CLEAR-SIMPLE-FAST-INFORMATION. It will make a difference in me. If you could get all that information in "commercial time"...wow, how great that would be! (sorry, if this has already been done...I don't have a lot of time to watch tv either. Love you guys after looking into you....will use as much of your products as possible...GOOD WORK!

Are the MRF in every state across the US? Are there any here in Florida that work with 7Generation?

I think it would be great if more companies would do this.

I recycle and seeing how it really works, brings quite a smile! Thank you for taking the time to do this! oo also southstar22_2003 asked if he said bleach in the begining, but i think he was talking about non-chlorine bleach.

did he say chlorine bleach at the start? i thought 7th generation was basically against using things like that?

That is an awesome concept. I have seen these products around but have not used any yet, but I definitely will make an effort to change over to your products after seeing this video. Thank you for starting up a GREEN company!!

The company that picks up our trash supposedly recycles just about everything. I think it would be interesting to visit a recycling center. Noisey and smelly but fascinating. Follow the trash.

Great video. Loved hearing of jobs created here in the U.S. (especially NC since I live in VA) I wish I could mail all of our used milk jugs to y'all since our family drinks 1 gallon of milk a day. Yay 7th Generation! and love the new paper laundry cleaner containers.

I wish that all State's where regulated and forced to do the same. Mother Earth can't handle all the trash that is being buried. I would like to thank you for being a great role model and starting this project.

I love that my old milk bottle can become something as pretty as the dish soap bottles from seventh generation. :)

I understood how plastics recycling works in general, but it was interesting to know 7th Generation sorts the milk cartons specifically and to see samples of the flake and resin stages the material passes through on its way to being reformed and reused.
