Environmental Wisdom – Seventh Generation Products

“In every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations”
From the Great Law of the Iroquois Confederacy

Seventh Generation paper products are made from 100% recycled paper and whitened with an environmentally safe process-never with chorine bleach. By choosing these products you make a difference today and for the next seven generations.
