When household product company “Seventh Generation” named their brand, they made a promise to consider the effects their present actions would have on the well-being of the next seven generations—roughly 140 years into the future. This ecological concept, based upon Native American beliefs, drives the company to continually promote sustainable lifestyles and always work in a way that will benefit future generations.
As one of Seventh Generation’s key plastic bottle manufacturers, we at Consolidated Container Company wholeheartedly agree with this notion. In fact, we’ve designed nearly a dozen of their product packages to date—producing over 23,000,000 bottles for them in 2014 alone. These aren’t just any plastic bottles. Most of the plastic packaging we blow mold for Seventh Generation contain 100% PCR (post-consumer regrind) content, not including colorant. Not only are these packaging solutions environmentally friendly, but also chlorine-free and phosphate-free.
CCC’s practice of using recycled plastic to make new bottles reduces our carbon footprint, and drives best practices in PCR use for sustainability. We are proud to partner with Seventh Generation as they continue to produce responsible cleaning and personal care products for today’s consumers that will support many generations to come.
