I love all of your products that I've tried, but not all of them are available at my local grocery store! :(
Well anywho, I think that a nice product be 100% natural clothing with or without natural dyes, and on the subject of natural dyes, maybe you could look into natural nail polish? Just a suggestion... :)
You asked, we answered: http://www.seventhgeneration.com/Hand-Soap
they have a silicone cover the brand is wee go my dauther have use them for a year and they dont break I found them online at shoecoboutique.com and I really happy they are the best bottles .
I use white vinegar and water to mop my floor and I spray it full strength to clean lime build up on showers and tubs it works great and is non toxic.
all natural laundry soap that protects colors and black clothing so there isn't a loss of color.
The one thing I always notice of all "earth friendly" products is that they are in plastic containers. What about consumers bringing their laundry soap containers and such to a Seventh Generation vending machine that's installed in retail stores. One could simply key in the product desired, the size of the containers being used, swipe your card for the required dollar amount, and the machine would distribute the correct amount into the container. If every grocery store can do this with water vending machines at 35 cents a pop for a gallon of water including the jug (and even they give the option of using your own jug, I think this could be done also for household products.
Hello. We get a shipment every 6 weeks or so of baby wipes. Unfortunately my source only has the plastic tubs. My sons love to play with them when I unload them from the box. I was thinking, it would be great if they had an interlocking (lego ish?) bottom and top so after we were done, they could become building blocks.
Just an idea. Thanks!
I would like to see smaller product bottles and larger refill in minimal packaging. It would be easier to lug the bottles around my house if they were smaller and less waist for refilling.
Also I really struggle with using a disposable toilet scrubbers because of the chemicals other companies use even if the scrubber can be flushed.
I like using plastic wrap but feel guilty throwing it away.
An eco-friendly and color-safe laundry sanitizer that works in cold water, perhaps powered by CleanWell?
There are so many great ideas here. Working in an office I see the literally tons of paper and paper products that are used on a daily basis. I have yet to see a true "paperless" office and I believe saving our trees has to be a top priority. Did you know that the original Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper? Hemp paper is not a new concept. We have to revive these "green" fibers for our daily use. If anyone can make this viable again I believe that 7G are the ones to do it.
Similar to the Cottonelle or Scott brands (but more env. friendly of course!)
I am very green & have switched almost every single product I use to the most eco friendly option possible.
However, one thing that I just have the hardest time living without is my DISPOSABLE HEAD TOILET BRUSH!!
I HATE how gross & nasty a regular toilet brush can be. I purchased one of those brushes from scrubbing bubbles that you buy new disposable heads for.
I HATE how many chemicals & gross stuff there is in scrubbing bubbles products & also that the pad is just garbage each time.
So PLEASE I would LOVE for 7th Gen to make a similar product using more eco-friendly disposable pads!!
I think this would be a great seller & worth a higher price!
Hi Bonniez45. We actually have two boxers that work with us, so I asked for help and following are ideas for you:
Salmon oil helps itchy skin. Olive oil is a possible option, too
Sounds like he has allergies either food related or environment. Benedryl can help with flair ups.
For food,A single source novel protein diet such a lamb, fish or duck could help. Something now common in normal dog foods. Grains can be an allergen for dogs as well. Natural Balance makes grain free foods with single source protein (fish and sweet potato, duck and potato).
Other foods that can help are:
California Natural Lamb and Rice
Innova Red Meat EVO
The company Earth Bath makes some nice no irritating dog shampoos and pet wipes. NO idea how “eco” they are but my guys do well with them.
Did you know that our laundry liquids have enzymes in them? Please be sure to try them in the Free & Clear(no scents and no masking scents to make it not have a smell.)
We have a boxer with severe allergies anything that helps his coat and skin gives him relief.
Evan so called special shampoos check the ingrediants alot of times it's just a play on words
I would love some enzyme based products that aren't to stinky to tackle odors. I hate using ones loaded with chemicals.
Agree with previous comments: We could use soaps, shampoos, toothpastes and such! :-)
I use all kind of different diapers, including flushables ones and I use your baby wipes. I think it would be great to have flushable wipes. When you clean up a big mess it is kind of annoying to try and flush the poop while retaining the wipes and throw them away in the garbage, when it would be so much easier and cleaner to just flush everything together!... ;-)
I hear bamboo wipes are flushable?
i'd love a concentrated floor cleaner. maybe something for carpet stains too!
I love your diapers! I get mine at Big Lots, for the same price as Dollar General's Luvs, which is the cheapest price for non-cloth diapers I've found yet. They work like a charm and are safer...win-win!
The ideas for 'green' products for tattoo artists and eco-friendly food bags/diaper-genie style bags are great ones. The green tattoo idea could provide a marketable niche that hasn't been heavily saturated either...definitely a plus!
As someone who wears 'ink', I would be proud to get my tats by an eco-minded artist!
Teenagers. Adults. Presidents are all apt to smoke. A small investment in 30 acres for un adulterated tobacco in the form of fine cigars as well as cigs would mitigate damage. Call it 7th solution but it would sell, and in ky there are massive incentives for the cas crop. I have some ins on property and if anyone would like to properly market a "healthier" cig or cigar that is still enjoyable to a smoker, there is a lot of growth there. While promoting abstanance myself from smoking the reality is that more people pick up daily or get sicker daily. Some additives are for the taste and may not be worse off with or without, but it can not have propellant, or other highly carcinogenic or work along carcinogenics found to cause cancer in store bought smokes. People do want to stop, they can not, so why not offer the next safest alternative, pure tobacco with additives to enhance memory or increase relaxation, drop tar down significantly and half the problem is helped. A uniquely green Seventh Solution from the private toxin free corner of kentucky. 4.99 a pack at 1.50 a pack its a win win, talk to me if youre interested in a model subsidiary of seventh generation, perhaps a tax free np entity could be applicable. I do believe there needs to be P.R… before the push to market so smokers will know they are available. Then all the Stores in the Americas will sell seventhggeneraton® products. Capital idea.© mm 09
concentrated cleaners or an in-store refill station much like the restore products would be a great earth-friendly feature to your brand. reducing the amount of plastic wasted.
...Who ever hired the design team who came up with logo...great job!!! The design is fresh and it is appealing to sooo many generations!
So how about a cotton T-shirt with the logo on one side and a small question on the other that says..."What generation are you?" (and of course the email address somewhere too)
You could sell them online with your other products and send them out to your field agents to wear during in-store events at every Whole Foods in the nation. Use them as door prizes for events. Heck, send one to Oprah and her audience for the day!!! Everyone needs a cool T-shirt to exercise in, right?!
Oh, by the way if this goes forward, can I have one? I'm an adult medium. :) p.s. More ideas to come. -Lizanne

I would love a night time diaper for my potty trained 2.5 year old. Something that was more like underwear then a diaper. He is trained during the day, but still has accidents at night, but I am still using your diapers at night and I don't want him to regress. He has very sensitive skin and I will not use the other brands as they all have given him a rash.
baby diaper rash cream
adult shampoo and body wash
swiffer moping pads....and much more
Ican not find a green floor wax I need to wax the floors but I don't want all the fumes and chem. in the house with the kids and dog please help
i use a scrub board for some clothes...jeans and blankets go in the machine.
could you please make some SAFE and hand-friendly, environmentally safe clothes soap for hand washing?
i would like to pour the soap water on the flower bed, not the in the toilet!
washing outdoors in summer is fun, great workout, and i get to amuse the neighbors!
We should try to come up with ideas for products that other companies aren't already doing. kissmyface.com already has a complete line-up of natural and organic soaps, shampoos, etc and are a reasonably big company. I suspect this is why Seventh Generation isn't edging into that market. Yet.
We need to come up with ideas for products nobody is making yet so Seventh Generation can increase the number of products they provide in areas nobody has thought of yet.
Like recycled/recyclable alternatives to the Swiffer dusters, all natural dyes (both temporary dyes like food coloring and permanent dyes for fabric) or at least non-toxic "green" (figuratively speaking) dyes, and eco friendly ink pens.
Just need to package the facial tissues into a portable packaging.
It would be wonderful if we could purchase all your items in bulk...that way we are waisting less. Any ideas?
I would love if 7th Gen made a gallon sized carpet cleaner for those vacuums such as the Bissell SpotBot or the Hoover Steam Vac.
It really can't be that difficult to make larger refill sizes available. They'd be better for all the obvious reasons. So many people have asked about it but, unless I'm missing something, nothing's been done.
I'd love it if there were travel size tissues. I like to keep something like that (or napkins from restaurants hehe) in my bag at all times in case of emergency..it would be great to have something like this.
Like recycled tooth brushes, biodegradable floss, biodegradabe mouth wash, natural creams..
oh! and recycled cups/plates/bowls! I mean burrible ones that can be used once
Judy L. McKnight I would really like a cleaner for my wood floors that I stripped and refinished a couple years back. It would really be great if my cats couldnt scratch it up so easily.
AND kids personal care products.
I definitly want to see green floor cleaners!!!!!!!!!
Hand soap, body wash, lotions for baby's skin and mine, laundry spot pre treat (although someone recommended using the carpet cleaner and it works ok), diaper rash cream, hard wood and tile floor cleaner, furniture polish, shampoo, conditioner, and maybe a few more if you give me a chance!!
paper plates and paper cups!!!!!!!
Some sort of a sandwhich bag that can be reused and is made with earth friendly materials. We use bags now that we wash when we get home from work some people dont have room for tubberware in their jobs so something like this would be great.
I think it's great we all use 7th-Gen disposable products personally, but I think it would impact the environment even more if there were large commercial-sized toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls, toilet seat covers, hand soap, etc available for businesses to purchase in bulk. SO many more people use those throughout the week when at public places and at work! And businesses who use those could put a sticker on the dispensers indicating that they're using 7th-Gen products! (what a PR boost!)
As a small business owner, and I'm sure there are lots out there, we could make a huge impact with just what our businesses use, not to mention the large corps!
With the dog waste. I save all bags. Bread bags, bags that my produce come in, potato bags everything. Try using these to pick up your dog waste. =)
I HAVE TWO DOG AND WHEN THEY GO #2 WE USE THOSE SMALL PLASTIC BLUE BAGS TO PICK IT UP SOME SORT OF AN ALTERNATIVE WOULD BE GREAT!
I agree it would be nice to have a floor cleaner like Meyer's Clean day all purpose cleaner(which I love). The problem with Meyer's products is that they are very expensive. If you could come up with a similar concentrated all purpose cleaner that you could use on floors but would be less expensive, I would definitely buy it. Besides, your cleaners are less environmentally friendly because they are diluted, so you have to buy more plastic.
I remember hearing an interview of Jeffrey Hollender (probably on NPR) where he said that the reason 7th Gen tissue/toilet paper is not as soft as other brands is because when paper is recycled, the fibers become shorter and thus the paper becomes harsher. Or something like that. Then awhile ago, I noticed tissue paper made out of cotton selling at Whole Foods. I thought that seemed like a not very eco-idea, given the amount of water cotton needs to grow. But then I had an idea. I don't know anything about making paper, but I've always been frustrated that I have not been able to find a good way to recycle my old cotton T-shirts. Would it be possible to make tissue paper out of recycled cotton and have it be softer than your current product?
Until 7G comes out with their own here are a few ideas to help you along. I use a little bit of organic olive oil and a tiny bit of lemon juice to polish my wood furniture. They sell recycled coffee filters in almost every grocery store they are usually the borwn ones. Then I just recycle the whole thing coffee grounds and all into my compost bin. As for hand sanitizer there is a product you can find at Target and online called Clean Well. It is an antibacterial sanitizer made from plant extracts. Go to their website and read their story they carry terrific products. =)
I love the idea of having personal care products including bath soap (liquid, bar, and bubble) shampoos and conditioner for more than one hair type(fine, curly, dry) as well as styling products. Shaving cream, tooth paste, skin care (acne, dry) lotion even
make - up.
I love the laundry & dish soap, and have used the diapers & wipes on my daughter since birth. I like the cleaning products too. I would love to see a Free & Clear dryer sheet.
With regards to certain posts: check out www.biodegradablestore.com, bags, cups, etc. Simple Green is an amazing cleaning product with many versatile applications and is non-toxic and biodegradable. I use it on my Travertine Floors and granite counter tops. And Drainbo is a great drain cleaner.
Back to 7G, the organic world of personal care is in dire need of a consistent line of functional products. Baby, Body, Face, Hair, and Sun Care. I think 7 Gen can accomplish this task.
Thank you for caring!
