An Unwavering Commitment to the Greater Good

Author: Seventh Generation

You may have recently read that we are harming animals and we want you to know that nothing could be further from the truth. For more than 25 years, Seventh Generation has been committed to animal rights and we’ve been working to build a future free of animal cruelty.

In that time, we’ve pioneered a new generation of consumer products made from non-toxic materials without conducting a single animal test. Indeed, our bedrock belief that animal testing has no place in a civilized world has earned our products Leaping Bunny cruelty-free certification and the admiration of all who care about animals.

Currently, under outdated federal law, thousands of untested and unregulated toxic chemicals are wreaking havoc on our environment and the health of the people and animals in it. Many of these chemicals have been shown to harm the health and viability of wildlife populations while simultaneously contributing to a host of growing human health epidemics including breast cancer, childhood cancers, birth defects and learning disabilities. It’s our moral imperative to protect those among us who are most vulnerable to this chemical exposure – including animals and children – and bring their voice to bear in Washington to reform this outdated law.

We believe that good policy on chemical reform need not be at odds with animal rights’ interests. Seventh Generation does not support unnecessary, repeated or senseless testing of toxic chemicals on animals, and supports all efforts to seek a methodology that would replace animal testing while ensuring that safety testing meets the most rigorous standards to protect human health and the health of the planet. Our support for chemical reform does not represent support for animal testing; it is the manifestation of our steadfast desire to protect all species from the effects of toxic chemicals.
