Waste is a growing problem that’s polluting our environment and starting to have some serious effects on human health. At Seventh Generation, we want to inspire the packaged goods industry—and likeminded people everywhere—to invest in change that will ensure future generations to come will inherit the healthy planet they deserve.
We’re proud to be leaders in creating more sustainable, less wasteful products—and are on track to be a completely zero-waste company by 2025—but we know it goes beyond our products and our goals. It’s the small, everyday acts that add up and together, become a powerful force for good.
Thinking and acting with future generations in mind is what makes you Generation Good – and our collective journey towards a zero waste revolution is well on its way. Our Generation Good online community is a place to connect with like-minded families & others to learn from and help along the way, so we asked them how they’re making small changes to reduce waste, especially when it comes to single-use plastic and paper products. Here are some of our favorite tips:
Feeling inspired? Keep the zero-waste revolution going! Take our Zero Waste Challenge, which was inspired by everyday people like you who are spreading the word about reducing waste. It’s a fun and easy way to assess your own environmental impact—and there’s a chance to win prizes!
We also encourage you to join the conversation as a member of our online community, Generation Good. Share what you know and learn what you need with like-minded parents & others as we all join forces to cut waste and grow good together.
