What Does "Free & Clear" Mean?
"Free" refers to the absence of added fragrances. Seventh Generation carefully selects ingredients that have minimal scent so that fragrances are not necessary. Some conventional products that are called “Free” actually use masking agents to cover the scent of their ingredients. Masks are fragrances that do not have a strong odor of their own, but can "overload" the olfactory sense so other fragrances are difficult to detect, too.
"Clear" is used to indicate that no dyes or pigments are added to the cleaning product. The dyes and pigments used in most conventional cleaning products are not biodegradable, and have aquatic toxicity.
Seventh Generation is committed to becoming the world's most trusted brand of authentic, safe, and environmentally-responsible products for a healthy home. For 20 years, the closely held Burlington, Vermont-based company has been at the forefront of a cultural change in consumer behavior and business ethics.
One of the country's first self-declared "socially responsible" companies, Seventh Generation is a business that operates according to a new and different set of principles and values that in many ways are a marked departure from those long considered "traditional." Its business practice is focused on offering people avenues to express their idealism, passion, and commitment to causes larger than themselves at every point along its supply chain—from suppliers and partners to shareholders, customers and its own staff.
The company derives its name from the Great Law of the Iroquois that states, "In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations." Every time you use a Seventh Generation product you are making a difference by saving natural resources, reducing pollution, keeping toxic chemicals out of the environment and making the world a safer place for this and the next seven generations.
