Seventh Generation is proud to be recognized at the Champion level of the EPA’s Safer Detergents Stewardship Initiative (SDSI), which is the highest recognition available. In sharing our participation in this program and the level at which we've been recognized, we hope it helps illustrate our deep commitment towards the use of safer surfactants.
At Seventh Generation, we are committed to using surfactants that are safer for you, your family, and the environment. Surfactant is a word that comes from "surface active agents", and is a cleaning agent commonly used in laundry detergents, dish detergents, hard-surface cleaners, and other cleaners. The surfactants used in our cleaning products are chosen for their effectiveness and safety for human and environmental health. Our surfactants are not chronically toxic, and do not contain alkylphenolethoxylates (APEs), such as nonylphenolethoxylate (NPE), which have been found to cause human health problems such as endocrine disruption.
Seventh Generation is committed to creating products that are safe and effective. We recognize this as a continuous process of innovation and improvement, requiring dedication and passion. Our Research & Development team consistently reviews the performance and ingredients used in our product formulations in order to ensure we are creating products that are safer for you, your family, and the environment.
