You can get discounts when you order online
Grove Collaborative is the name of an official online buying club that offers discounts on Seventh Generation products. It’s similar to Amazon’s Subscribe and Save program if you’re familiar with the Amazon initiative.
Grove Collaborative could represent a meaningful way to schedule delivery of Seventh Generation products to your home and to save money at the same time. The promise is you’ll pay well below the retail price you would at your grocery store.
And bonus: If you like your cleaning products green, other brands you can save on through the collaborative include Method, Mrs. Meyer’s and Dr. Bronner’s.
You’ll find additional coupons and savings if you know where to look
The Krazy Coupon Lady maintains a list of Seventh Generation coupons here.
But that’s not the only place to look. Right now, if you sign up for iBotta, you can score $2 off any variety of laundry detergent 95 ounces or larger. That’s just one of the available Seventh Generation deals for signing up with this mobile coupon app.
You can also sign up to be a product tester and get additional coupons that way!
The company is big into using bioplastics for packaging
Recycled plastic and sugar cane…those are the two ingredients in 100 ounce bottles of Seventh Generation laundry detergents! It’s part of the company’s initiative to make all of its packaging made from recycled or bio-based materials by 2020.
The Seventh Generation logo looks strangely familiar…
Here’s one for the young parents among you…Anybody notice the similarity between the Seventh Generation leaf logo and the leaf in a certain book by renowned children’s book author and illustrator Eric Carle?
The brand gets it name from a Native American Indian idea
The founding document of the Iroquois Confederacy states, “In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.” Hence the company’s name!
Though Seventh Generation is based in Vermont, the Iroquois Confederacy was comprised of five warring Iroquois tribes—the Cayugas, Mohawks, Onondagas, Oneidas, and Senecas—who made peace and unified in what is now the state of New York.
Seventh Generation is a B Corp
The company recently celebrated it’s fourth year making the B Corp Best for Environment list.
Not sure what a B Corporation is?
B Corps are certified to be better for workers, better for communities and better for the environment. There are about 1,700 companies such as Patagonia, Etsy and Ben & Jerry’s that meet the world’s most rigorous standard for businesses supporting social, environmental and community wellbeing.
This is our 4th year making the #BCorp Best for Environment list! More about being a #bestfortheworld16 honoree: https://t.co/cbqL3l0cNn
