All of our products are certified cruelty-free, never tested on animals, and contain no animal-based ingredients as shown by the Leaping Bunny seal on our packaging. The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics' (CCIC) Leaping Bunny Program is an independent, third party auditor with whom we register every year.
We believe it is our responsibility to set a course for a more mindful way of doing business. We are proud to be a founding member of B Corp and a certified B Corporation, meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. We encourage others to join us in using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
In 2002, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) initiated the USDA BioPreferred® program as part of the Farm Bill. The Program is an accreditation for products with demonstrated biobased content – meaning the ingredients come from renewable biological sources. The USDA Certified Biobased product label lists the percentage of biobased content in each product. Our hope is that sharing our biobased content will encourage consumers to make more informed and conscious decisions about how products are made. Seventh Generation was one of the first recipients of the USDA Certified Biobased product label, and is an active participant in the USDA BioPreferred program.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program recognizes buildings that meet specific criteria in six broad categories related to sustainable design: Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, Innovation and Design, and Sustainable Sites. Seventh Generation's offices incorporate a variety of materials, technologies, and features, which combine to create a facility that conserves resources, safeguards the health of its occupants, and makes positive contributions to the larger community.
